Episode cast overview, first billed only:
Nora Vashey


The firm takes on the case of a Chicago alderman, Matthew Wade, who is charged with taking a $50,000 bribe. Wade is a good friend of Will Gardner who asks Diane to take the lead. The case takes on a whole new dimension when the Justice Department charges him with accepting money from a terrorist organization, which could lead to a thirty year sentence. The defense lawyers have 125 hours of wiretap conversations to listen to and Alicia is drafted into the team. She finds evidence that the charges are exaggerated but also that Eli Gold's telephone was under surveillance and Will Garner's personal conversations with Wade were captured. Eli is having his own problems when a video and fake Facebook page mocking Glen Childs' son appears. Eli also receives an interesting offer from Wendy Scott-Carr. Meanwhile, the feud between Kalinda and Blake reaches dangerous proportions. Written by garykmcd

2.8 is A Disappointing 2.5 **1/2
24 November 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

What's really going on here. The lawyers tackle a case where an alderman is accused of taking bribes, which is certainly not new in Chcago politics. The problem is who he is linked with. He alternately goes from the extremist Muslim group to routine drug dealers.

Now, suddenly we're hearing that Lockhart(Christine Baranski) thinks that her partner,Josh Charles, is going to ditch her so she is planning to leave in a few weeks and start with someone else. Who will Alicia go with when this schism occurs?

Alicia is listening to tapes and is floored when she hears Eli's name mentioned with the alderman link and then her relationship with Charles is revealed on tape. It's pretty confusing and even Grandma Florrick shows up to show some bigotry regarding the Florrick's new girlfriend- a young black lady.

Chris Noth doesn't appear here and that's a shame. The story is completely not cohesive.
