*** For Financial Benefit Gain
9 January 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Even Cary finally has something nice to say regarding Alicia in this episode.

As Wendy and all are trying to tie a noose around Will's neck, to add insult to injury, the firm is sued by a couple whose divorce they worked on. The reconciled couple is now claiming that Lockhart-Gardner was encouraging the divorce for financial gain. The very slick F. Murray Abraham guest-starred as the couple's lawyer. Whatever happened to Abraham? Winning the 1984 best actor Oscar for "Amadeus" did him little good professionally.

It looks like Alicia will be on the hook regarding the couple's complaint, but as always, good fortune smiled on her.

Diane is interested in the guy who doles out the summons. He appeared real continental, as he does his dirty work.
