The firm goes all out when a client is surprisingly found guilty of first degree murder. They have a sympathetic judge and even Carey Agos is concerned that the prosecution hasn't made their case. The accused refused a deal, not prepared to plead guilty to something she didn't do. Now that the verdict has been delivered, they look for evidence of jury misconduct or anything that might get the judge to direct a verdict of not guilty. It doesn't get easier when Special Prosecutor Wendy Scott-Carr questions the judge in the Will Gardner investigation. She also has something interesting to say to Will. Written by garykmcd

Here Comes the Judge (to be thrown out) ***1/2
14 December 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The judge agreed with the defense that the conviction was wrong, but is unable to go along with declaring a mistrial since he needs more evidence. The evidence shown in the end is quite ironic and to say the least, the judge should have known better.

That being said, this is again another good episode as the theme is using your power. We see this in the intimidation by Peter Florrick of the head mistress of the private school. He will never accept the accuse that there is no room for his children in the school, and he shows that he can play a mean game of vengeance against all-concerned.

Florrick may have made a big mistake in appointing Wendy to investigate Peter. Apparently, this loser to him in the last election, may very well turn the tables on Mr. Florrick.

This is the second straight episode that Christine Baranski really shows her mettle. This woman is assertive, is taking a more active role at the trials, and shows that besides academics, she is street smart to the core.
