Inquest: ***1/2
18 March 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Well, at least I learned that an inquest involves determining the cause of demise.

Politics, politics. Pete Florrick wins the Democratic nomination for governor of Illinois, and immediately there are pictures of his son's girlfriend, the latter's family having ties with Al-Qaeda terrorists. Something has to give. Zach, the son, breaks up with the girl claiming that she was moving too fast. Who knows?

Interesting about the firm getting that contract only to soon discover that Cary's father made sure of it. Then, of course, the company changes its mind. Cary had a good part in this episode, and he was sarcastic and sneaky looking as possible. Nevertheless, there is that sadness in him that he is unable to maintain a healthy relationship with his estranged father.
