Storyline

With Derek Bond now out of the way, the firms is keen to keep drug dealer Lemond Bishop - or at least the legitimate part of his criminal empire - as a client. Bishop's wife Katrina wants to divorce him and will assigns Alicia to work with David Lee on the case. They find that Katrina's lawyer is playing hardball, even after Bishop agrees to give her virtually everything she asked for. Bishop has little choice but to reconsider his options. Kalinda is subpoenaed to appear before the grand jury and on Alicia's advice, refuses to testify on the grounds she may incriminate herself. The nature of the questions however suggest that State's Attorney Glenn Childs may have another target in mind. Kalinda plays her cards well and finds a way to make it all go away. On the campaign front, Eli Gold realizes Peter will have to appeal to an altogether different demographic if he's to win. Written by garykmcd

Goofs

Archie Punjabi's British accent leaks through when Kalinda testifies to the grand jury. She continuously repeats the line, "I refuse to answer on the grounds it may incriminate me," and pronounces the word, "answer" with a British accent as "awhn-sah" instead of the American pronunciation, "an-sur."

Please Don't Squeeze the 'Sharma' *** This Good Wife Episode
23 March 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

If you thought that Kalinda was a lesbian, that will totally be dispelled in this episode. What a surprise. Guess whose bed she has been sleeping in? This will knock you for a loop. Unfortunately, the episode itself was not the best.

The firm representing a drug kingpin in his divorce proceedings with a wife he actually loved isn't the greatest of themes to tackle.

Then on top of everything else, Kalinda receives a subpoena and eventually gets tired of taking the 5th.

The sidebar story is that Eli is convinced that for Peter to win in the election, he needs the votes of soccer moms and working men. In other words, it's time to go racist and it gets pretty ugly when Pete's son's girlfriend is black. We're reaching a new low in politics but what else is new?
