Storyline

Alicia gets a spacious new office. Diane encourages Cary with a new office and news that there may be room for another partner in a few months. She also wants him to interview and hire a new associate. Having been offered a seat on the State Supreme Court by Peter Florrick - should he win the election - Diane hires Kalinda to do a background check on her so she'll know where she's vulnerable. Alicia is again representing Colin Sweeney who has been charged with disorderly conduct, a fairly mild charge arising out of a party that got out of hand. The State's Attorney however won't plea bargain is pushing for a tougher sentence. They realize the State's Attorney's office is dragging it out but it's Cary who figures out why - an impending Supreme Court decision could lead to Sweeney going to jail for life. They decide to push for an immediate trial for which ASA Laura Hellinger is not prepared. Written by garykmcd

The Good Wife The Wheels of Justice
1 April 2013 | by (Ireland) – See all my reviews

Dylan Baker is so great when he comes onto the show as Colin Sweeney and once again he made another great visit to the show which was not his best but he still was funny and great. The exploration into the past of Diane with Kalinda helping gave some great material to Christine Baranski and also brining back Diane's lover Kurt (Gary Cole) to the show made the episode go to Baranski. Carey and Robyn are characters I never expected would be put together and the great thing is they were great especially Jess Weixler who fits right into the atmosphere of the show. Going back to Diane's past the story of her father being a bad guy was very emotional especially the character of Diane who loved her father only to be disappointed by him. Morena Baccarin was good in her small appearance and I believe she was better used then she ever is on Homerland where she is a regular to the show. Great episode with some funny moments and now that Alicia has let Will go he gets to be with Laura who has someone else which could potentially put Will and Alicia back together.

EPISODE GRADE: B+ (MVP: Christine Baranski)
