Please Don't Squeeze the 'Sharma' *** This Good Wife Episode, 23 March 2011
Author: edwagreen from United States

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

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?
