A jam packed episode filled with Lemon Bishop, the Florrick's campaign scandal, and the Kalinda side story.
28 October 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This was one of those unique Good Wife episodes that puts you on the edge of your seat. The way Alicia gets stuck with a dilemma really brings out the morality within her. This episode is considerably plot driven, it has no side story that don't relate to the story's main plot like most lawyer type episodes. I like how we get to see a different side of Lemon. He is not this scary drug-pin anymore. He is now a father. It really exemplifies how people can have two sides. Along with a very cryptic ending. This episode deserves a 10, by far one of the best this season. I have to fill the rest of this space. I have to fill the rest of this space.
