Will Gardner is defending a woman who is accused of murdering her husband. New Assistant State's Attorney Laura Hellinger is proving quite effective and Will isn't scoring very many points with Judge Harrington Creary. That evening, Will runs into Judge Creary in a bar and is shocked when Creary tells him he's a liar and a thief and that his client is guilty. The next day Alicia asks the judge to recuse himself and when he refuses, she insists on a hearing to determine whether he should be removed. The judge denies under oath having said any of the statements attributed to him. It turns out the judge has something of a drinking problem. Meanwhile, Alicia's daughter Grace takes an interest in a fellow student, Connor. Cary Agos is severely beaten in a parking lot. Written by garykmcd

The Good Wife Here Comes the Judge
18 November 2012 | by (Ireland) – See all my reviews

Laura goes up against Will in the court and at the start she seems a bit rusty saying all the wrong things. A girl in Grace's school killed herself and everyone is trying to figure out the whole thing. Will has a drink with Will in the bar after having a bad day to Laura. Will meets with the judge at the var and he makes fun of Will saying he is going to lose the case. Will and Diane then put Alicia in first chair because they judge might like female lawyers more. When Alicia try's to ask the judge to leave he says no but they still go through with getting him off the case. Judge Dunaway is called to look over the case against the judge. Grace at school goes to talk to the girl who killed herself's boyfriend. Nick comes to see Cary again at the office and asks Cary is he gay. This makes the conversation go very awkward and Nick leaves. The judge then goes to the testify and lies about it. Will has to Giada Cabrini because she was a witness in the bar when the judge made his comments. Alicia then talks to Grace about hanging around with this knew boy after she was followed by the other campaign's camera. Kalinda goes to an AA meeting to find a witness to use against him. The judge is then ready to rule but he still does not like what has happened at these hearings. When the firm get the other judge off the case Laura comes saying that she is offering 25 years. When Alicia comes home she lets Zach work for the Florick campaign and Grace smells like smoke. OK episode with Judd being great as this judge who ended up being biased.
