Judge Jared Quinn

Alicia finds herself at the center of a State inquiry, run by Cary Agos, when a tape of Glenn Child's deposition in the Northbrook murder case is given to a journalist. Alicia is the main suspect given husband Peter's run for office. Eli Gold sees no advantage for either candidate and thinks there must be a third candidate getting ready to throw their hat in the ring. He gets Diane Lockhart to deliver to the message to the candidate not to run but doesn't quite get it right. In court, Alicia is defending the organizer of a rave where a stampede led to the death of several people. Alicia finds herself in front of a judge who has taken an obvious dislike to her. She's also paired with someone she once argued against and who proves to be very effective. She is obviously out to protect the interests of the co-defendant at the expense of Alicia's client.

Good Wife Holds to Her Virtue **** 2.4
20 October 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This was an excellent episode where Alicia may have been guilty of an ethical violation by giving out information regarding a deposition. Of course, she didn't but the guy who lost to her in getting the job and is now working for her husband's rival, tries to make political hay out of this situation.

Speaking of ethics, Christine Buranski turns the tables on that woman who wanted her to enter politics only to dissuade her later on. As this episode ends, a new 3rd party candidate is announced by this woman. (a judge under investigation for bribery). In addition, the young girl, an attorney who comes off as immature, joins Alicia in her latest case only to try to weaken her at every attempt.

The episode was wonderful.
