Storyline

Diane defends her erstwhile love interest, Kurt McVeigh, when he faces a law suit from a convicted criminal who has now been released when his lawyer shows the police and the crime lab manufactured evidence. They go after McVeigh in the belief that he too was part of the conspiracy. To get the case thrown out, Diane will have to show that he made an honest mistake. Meanwhile, Eli Gold thinks he's found the silver bullet in Peter's campaign against Wendy Scott-Carr: it appears that the she hired an illegal alien, Natalie Flores, as a nanny. She's been living in the U.S. since the age of 2 and has a lawyer working on her citizenship. She's completing her Master's degree and is an all-round good person which leads Eli to question what he is doing. At home, Alicia has a heart to heart with Grace who has developed a keen interest in religion. Written by garykmcd

Just Look for the Silver Lining ***1/2
23 February 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This episode-"Silver Bullet"was quite intriguing. It dealt with love, ricochet bullets, first amendment rights and racist themes in relation to The Tea Party.

Christine Baranski had her juiciest role to date in this hit show and she made the most out of it in her defense of her former lover. He is being sued for giving wrong information regarding a ballistic theory which led to the conviction of someone which was subsequently overturned. Even the fact that he is a Tea Party Member with signs referring to the president as a monkey are shown.

In other matters, we see Eli resorting to nasty politics in trying to get information about candidate Wendy Scott having an illegal nanny. Along the way, he seems to be falling for the nanny while his daughter contemplates living in Israel.

Even Alicia's daughter comes into the act in a free speech argument in school. What was the school administrator crying about? Too much for her!
