Episode cast overview, first billed only:
Isabel Sharp

Aida Rios (as Paula Garces)


The firm represents an oil drilling company that has not been paid the $86 million it is owed by an oil company for the work they performed. They are in the processing of deposing the owner of that company when they are told the that the President of Venezuela has nationalized that company's interests and they are now the plaintiffs in the case. The election is only a day away and the candidates are close to being even in the pools. Wendy Scott-Carr's husband has given a very sympathetic TV interview and Eli Gold is forced to ask Alicia to do the same even though he had promised her at the outset that he would never do so. Alicia is also being asked for information by the investigator looking into Blake Calamar's statements to an ASA. He thinks he has good news for Alicia. The news however is devastating.

This Episode: Where is the Victor? **1/2
13 April 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This episode was quite muddled to say the least. There is a suit at Lockhart-Gardner about oil drilling and then Cesar Chavez, dictator of Venezuela, nationalizes the company and supposedly speaks at the various depositions given. You really don't know what this is really all about and frankly you couldn't care less. Former actor turned former Senator and Presidential candidate in 2008, Fred Thompson guest starred. I have news for you. Just like his glib run for the presidency in 2008, his performance here left a lot to be desired as well.

It's also election time. Despite winning, Peter Florrick (Chris Noth) does not appear. Is he already on summer hiatus? Guess what Alicia discovers just when the election is called for Florrick?
