Storyline

The firm takes on the case of a Chinese dissident who was imprisoned and tortured for 5 years after a US-based company gave Chinese government officials his IP address. Alicia gets upset when she finds out the real reason the firm is pursuing the case. Cary tells Kalinda that the State's Attorney is empaneling a grad jury to investigate her. The showdown with Derek Bonds is fast approaching with Diane and Will are still short a few votes. Diane remembers a couple of old partners who are still on the books and tries to get them to vote their way - but it's obvious they're going to have a high price. On the campaign trail, Eli is thrilled when Zach and Becca may have uncovered Glenn Child's own little nanny-gate. Written by garykmcd

Social Networking and Much More in this Episode ***
2 March 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This was a fragmented episode taking in just everything. Looks like Peter has gotten himself into a 2 way race after his son's discovery that Childs also had a nanny. It's dirty politics as always and Eli positively delights in the matter.

In a related story, a Chinese immigrant sues over a social network allegedly giving out information that allowed him to be imprisoned and supposedly tortured in China for several years.

The third story deals with the partner intrigue and Gardner-Lockhart bringing back elderly lawyers to vote in a crucial firm decision.

This episode was choppy at best. Each of the stories could have been developed into the full hour of the series.
