Good Wife-Good & Muddled ***
8 November 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Speaking of irony, the trial with the accused terrorist suing the American government is a perfect example of that. By the middle of the action, both the defense and prosecuting side took opposite actions from the beginning. That in itself was quite amazing.

The Attorney General going after Will reluctantly? Come on now. He has an inkling of what's going on between his estranged wife Alicia and Mr. Gardner. Now, we're hearing of Will's past as a gambler? This becomes more intriguing each week.

You know that Cary would love to go after Will as well. Remember, Lockhart-Gardner fired Cary first season back.

All of a sudden the Florrick daughter got religion?
