Storyline

Lockhart/Gardiner & Bond are looking to launch a test case as a precursor to a class action suit against MRG Pharmaceuticals. Several people have reported violence after taking a anti-depressant they've developed. They've chosen their case carefully but the opposing counsel, Louis Canning, is adept at using his own physical disability to sway the jury to his side. The suit is important to the financially challenged firm and Will gets Blake Calamar to find evidence against a psychiatrist that has given potentially devastating testimony against them. Kalinda and Blake meanwhile are still going at each other and he's now suggesting that he's aware of her sexual preferences. On the campaign trail, Eli Gold is trying to figure out how to mount an effective campaign against the new entrant in the race, Wendy Scott-Carr. She seems squeaky clean but Eli tricks his counterpart in the Childs campaign into using potentially damaging information against her. Written by garykmcd

Good Wife-As Good As It Gets, But Why Only ***?
10 November 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Michael J. Fox turns in a tremendous performance which should be remembered at Emmy time for best actor in a special performance category. How he uses his disability to sway a jury is phenomenal; he is quite a cunning and vicious character as well. Well done, Mr. Fox.

Why did I only rate this episode ***? I immediately guessed why the new black candidate had that work on her breasts. Anyone should have been able to guess that. How the campaigns never checked into that was amazing. It just shows you how vicious campaigns get and how they will use anything to get the upper hand. If this isn't enough,Kalinda has come out of the closet. Are we going to have a full blown episode of sexual orientation problems in the workplace?
