Storyline

Peter Florrick announces his candidacy for his former State's Attorney position and Alicia is caught in the middle between him and Will Gardner. There is much change at the office as Will and Diane Lockhart find a new business partner who seems to have his own ideas on how the firm should be run. In court, Judge Howard Matchick appoints Alicia to provide advice to someone who insists on defending himself. He is accused of murdering his business partner but his defense is that he is the victim of a government conspiracy as retaliation for publishing sensitive government documents on his whistle-blower web site. Alicia gets permission to assign Kalinda to do some leg work and finds the source of the original information posted to the web site. Written by garykmcd

The Good Wife- Keep Stories Straight ***
28 September 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

With this season's opener, Alicia has made up her mind as the firm seems to have merged.

Archie Panjabi, who copped a supporting actress Emmy Award last month, seems to have competition at the office.

Nice to see Peter's campaign manager matched wit by wit by Peter's mother. Looks like the children will be caught up in the campaign and it isn't very nice the way they are going to be used.

The flaw here was the uneven murder case that Mrs. Florrick went to trial over. Something about a murder involving the pentagon, according to the accused. The judge appeared severe and the defendant quite quirky before accepting a 5 year jail sentence.

Hope there is more chemistry between characters as season 3 goes on.
