If this weren't enough, Pete informed Diane that he was nominating her for a vacancy on the state supreme court if he were to be elected governor. Of course, Diane would have to cut all ties with the law firm if she accepts. This will be most interesting to see. I hope that this is not a way for Christine Baranski to leave this excellent show.
As if all this was not enough, Alicia was summoned by the police when one of her clients, a person constantly suing others, in shot to death on the street. When it's learned that the killer is headed to Alicia's apartment, she quickly calls her children and tells them to flee the apartment. Her mother, the wonderful Stockard Channing, is there and brings the kids to a bar where she reveals that Alicia was pregnant before she married. Alicia has to explain to her daughter that she is loved in any case.
Flashbacks were effectively used to show Alicia in scenes with the dead client and her love affair with Will.
A totally juicy episode not to be missed.
