Will and Alicia are defending a man accused of having murdered his father after he threatened to cut the young man out of his will. Will knows the judge quite well but an incident on the basketball court leads him to believe that the judge is out to get even from the bench. At the client's request, the firm hires a jury specialist who supposedly can tell if the lawyers are getting the defense's message across. Kalinda thinks it's all a lot of bunk. She also reacts badly when Blake tells her that he is now her supervisor. Alicia goes ballistic as well when she learns Blake has been doing a background check on her.

Never Underestimate the Jury ***1/2
19 January 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Imagine hiring a jury consultant who has the ability to literally pick the minds of the jurors. Fascinating that with all he brings to the table, the ending verdict is mostly surprising to all.

Chris Noth appears in this one as he works at his campaign. The woman playing his mother comes off as simple, but she is as clever as they come.

As far as our weekly trial drama goes, the judge is asked to recuse himself from a case. I just love that when all the guys are not in court, they're on the basketball court.

Diane and the Josh Charles character seem to have reached some rapprochement, but you never know. Cary was somewhat more subdued after his terrific performance in the last episode. His character has built some chip on his shoulder since leaving Lockhart-Gardner.
