Storyline

Diana Lochkhart and Celeste Seranno face a major problem when their key witness in a law suit commits suicide. Diane is representing the passengers and Celeste the crew members who all died in a plane crash. Their witness was going to testify that the aircraft manufacturer knew there was a fault with the deicing system and didn't correct it due to costs. The only solution they have is to call in Colin Sweeney, someone they know well and whose company financed some of their work. Sweeney wants out of prison in return for his testimony. The SA's office wants him to wear a wire to get evidence on a white supremacist who is ordering hits from inside prison. Meanwhile, Eli is working hard to get Peter the keynote address at the Democratic convention. Alicia is under pressure to hire David Lee's niece and she has to deal with daughter Grace's choice of friends. Written by garykmcd

Nepotism At its Best ***1/2
24 October 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Very good episode detailing how nepotism, favoritism and cronyism play a role in the selection of attorneys. The ending, where Alicia discovers that she came up that way, was fabulously done. Everyone washes each other's hands.

Getting that convicted wife-killer of turning evidence in another case was also nicely done. The guy in question reminded me of the main character in "Silence of the Lambs." He was a chilling character with an aura of insanity about himself, especially showing that he had a lot of intelligence.

I never knew that being a keynote speaker was so important, but that is how Clinton and Obama came up as quickly as they did.

Eli Gold remains crafty and Matt Czuchry remains as smug as ever.
