Just When You Thought Take the Money & Run 4.2 ****
9 October 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Another excellent episode involving a wrongful death suit filed by the mother of a victim who died after being pepper sprayed at a demonstration.

Back from suspension, Will is as cocky as ever and at first it looks like he is doing the correct thing by rejecting the $800,000 settlement proposed by the city only to see new evidence emerge that could make that figure zero.

Alicia's responses to the trustee, efficiency expert, Nathan Lane, who is so much more subdued in this role, are blunt and to the point. No specifics here as this lady doesn't want to assume the role of personnel director.

Interesting to see Christine Baranski's low-key but very effective reaction when it appears that Alicia has shown an impropriety regarding the new landlord, who suddenly endorses the former's husband for governor.

Kalinda really shows a love-hate relationship with her husband, the latter this time at the door with a gun as she enters.

Shame, but not surprisingly the police cover-up in the death of the young man is revealed by the episode's end.

Alicia and her husband look ready for a reconciliation as the campaign bus rolls home at day's end.
