  • A case involving suicide in a company and Kalinda's secret is about to be revealed.

    This was a very classic Good Wife episode. Nothing overly dramatic happened, but one could sense that the plot served as a build up for some dramatic final episodes.



    The firm Lockhart - Gardner took on a case in which employees of a company claimed the bad treatment of employees had led to suicides. At the same time different parties try to uncover or keep under wraps Kalinda's affair with Peter. In this episode one character returned and stood out once again: Michael J. Fox as Louis Canning. This is a lawyer who enjoys his time in the moral grey zone, has ulterior motives, and does not hesitate to switch alliances as long as he wins a case. Since the first time he appeared on the show I have enjoyed watching his work. He is definitely a rare example of a bad guy who one can't help liking. He brings a real comic relief to the show as a person who shamelessly uses his medical condition to score sympathy points. At the same time he you can't wait for him to be crushed by Lockhart - Gardner. Kalina, my favourite regular, had very little to do in this episode. The other actors did a solid job as always.



    Now when the wall of secrets Kalinda has built around herself is beginning to crack, and the big Secret is slowly seeping out, I cannot wait for the upcoming episodes. What will the confrontation between her and Alicia be like?moreless

    Another very entertaining episode of The Good Wife here tonight. This is a show that I thought may have been slipping during its second season, but I am now realizing that I really want this show to be renewed: it is that good.



    The case of the week was very interesting and is a real life issue as a lot of employees are currently going through these problems. I was surprised they would show such a graphic hanging video on CBS too.



    The return of Michael J. Fox was another highlight tonight. My jaw hit the floor when he announced that he was purchasing Stern's law firm.



    But the best moment of the night has to be when Eli flipped out. Angry Eli is pure gold.



    Good episode.moreless
