Alicia and Cary take the lead in representing Lemond Bishop at his preliminary hearing in Federal Court. Felicia is surprised to find that she's up against her nemesis from law school, U.S. Assistant Attorney Liz Lawrence. They don't expect to win at this stage but they should get a good idea of the Justice Department's case. Bishop asks that another lawyer, Charles Lester, join her in in his defense. The bumbling and seemingly harmless Lester accompanies Alicia as she interviews the prosecution's witnesses. When each of those witnesses change their stories on the stand, she begins to wonder just what Lester is up to. At the the firm, the partners argue over whether they should re-acquire the office space they gave up during bankruptcy and also decide to hire a second investigator. Written by garykmcd

The Good Wife Runnin' with the Devil
11 March 2013 | by (Ireland) – See all my reviews

Another Good Wife episode another guest starring role by a respected Broadway actor. This week sees famed musical theatre actress Audra McDonald come onto the show as Alicia's nemeses from school. Audra was good in her scenes and the two women versus each other in court was nice especially with Tony winner Bebe Neuwrith as the judge. The other part of the episode was Kalinda meeting the second investigator brought into the firm and they had some nice play off each other as Kalinda was the more closed off while Robyn (Jess Weixler) seemed more comedic in her character especially up against the more reserved Kalinda. The women in both plots really owned the episode with the occasional good moment from Wallace Shawn playing the suspecting threatener Charles Lester who seemed to the case to Alicias shock. I really did like Audra as I always have in every thing she does. The firm is also doing well which means they have money to spar and it''s funny to see how fast they got out of that situation compared to the start of the season where they really struggled with the money situation. Another strong episode from the show is getting to repetitive now.

EPISODE GRADE: B+ (MVP: Archie Panjabi)
