Another well done episode.
I really love it when The Good Wife puts Alicia in a new environment and forces her to think for herself and adapt. This hour was another great example of what a wonderful character Alicia Florrick is. Although I’m not sure I enjoyed Mathew Perry’s appearance so much, I loved the idea of the Blue Ribbon Panel and Alicia’s involvement in it. It’s really hard not to root for Juliana Marguiles and this was no exception as I loved seeing her fend off for herself against a gang of elite lawyers and pompous judges.
As for Diane and the situation at Lockhart Gardner, the battle for Will’s spot was intriguing, but I’m glad we’ve put an end for it for now with an awesome little twist using the senile old guy who is the most “senior” executive at the firm. It was definitely an enjoyable development.
Moreover, while Kalinda using her sexuality against those who are out to get her is getting a bit repetitive, this was probably the best use of it yet with her coming on to the insecure FBI lawyer in front of her colleagues. Definitely amusing.
Finally, I’m not too sure how I feel about Jackie’s return because I feel they’ve done all that they could with her but I have no problem being proved wrong so we’re about to find out.
All in all, a very good hour across the board.
