Storyline

Having successfully defended a client on a charge of murdering his wife, Alicia and Will find themselves in a military court when he is re-arrested and charged with the same crime. As he is serving in the military, it seems that double jeopardy - which prevents anyone from being tried for the same crime twice - does not apply. The defense lawyers make the best of it but it all seems stacked against them - the rules of procedure and evidence are different and the Judge seems biased against the civilian lawyers. Kalinda gets some important information and Alicia ends up calling Cary Agos to the stand. At the office, news travels quickly when everyone learns that the firms new partner has Lou Dobbs on his client list. Diane isn't that comfortable with his politics however. Peter Florricks campaign for State's Attorney takes a nasty turn. Written by garykmcd

The Good Wife-This Episode Merits ****
6 October 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Imagine, even Lou Dobbs briefly appears as a client who the firm may inherit due to the merger. After viewing his debut, Dobbs had better go back to finances!

That being said, we have a terrific episode here. The firm gets an army guy off for killing his wife only to have the guy re-arrested by a military court, since he was in the service when the murder occurred. Alicia and her boss must face a very hard-nosed lady judge who goes by the book and seems to have it in for civilian attorneys.

While this is going on, the campaign is getting dirtier as both sides will be using their children in an attempt to defame the other side. Alan Cumming as the campaign manager steals this episode with some very good acting.

Alicia's make-up was not good at the opening scene. They soon changed that for the better.
