Sometimes the complexity of The Good Wife makes my head hurt. As does life. Fortunately, I can rewind The Good Wife and try to figure out all the bamboozling parts at least a little better.
Let’s start from the beginning. We’re back in the parking lot seeing Cary getting beat up again, in case we forgot, which is a slightly jolting way to kick things off. Yet the next time we see Cary in person, he has one slightly bruised eye. That’s it. I mean, I assume his torso is pretty wrecked, but all that pounding and he still looks pretty much perfect? Uh, Ok. Also, instead of someone rushing to his side at a hospital, or him going to Kalinda to say, “Hey, this is effed,” or some other satisfying sequence of events, we see him in this first appearance chatting with Horrible Husband.
