Babette Penn
Rhonda Cerone (as Gaby Hoffman)


When killer Jarvis Bowes is released after 30 years in a mental hospital, Alicia and the firm try to prevent him from benefiting from his crime. He had kidnapped, tortured and raped a woman and doctors now argue that the man who committed those crimes no longer exists. He considers himself an artist and a songwriter and the lyrics for a now popular song are generating significant revenues for him. The firm knows that they have little chance of winning a first amendment case but Will Gardner has a another idea. Eli Gold is still feeling guilty about what he did to Natalie Flores and he gets Diane Lockhart to take on her case pro bono. When her father is arrested for a suspected burglary, the firm tries desperately to keep the illegal immigrant out of the system. Meanwhile, Kalinda is worried that Blake Calamar may have revealed her secret to an Assistant State's Attorney. Written by garykmcd

Heart of Gold
5 September 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This episode shows a side of Eli Gold we rarely get to see. Whether his motivation was his conscience, guilt or genuine feelings for Natalie Flores (America Ferrera) may be unclear but he went above and beyond with the initial intention of not receiving credit for his act of chivalry. I like it when Eli let's his better side come out to play. It is hard to reconcile this Eli with the one of the previous episode who decided to "White up" his candidates image. Alan Cumming is a very talented actor and he nails the nuances of the many layers and faces of Eli Gold.

In other story lines, it was nice to see the firm take on a case that resulted in some actual justice being served. Again, a stark contrast to the previous episode.

Finally can I just say I am loving season 2 Cary - who would have thought!
