Cristián Romano


It's the day before the election and Zach is out at an early voting station when becomes suspicious of an unsealed ballot box. Alicia goes before Judge Abernathy on the issue and come up against Patti Niholm representing Peter's opponent, Mike Cristiva. Diane and Will and several others are soon on the case but when they count the ballots, the total is very much in Peter's favor. It all comes to an abrupt halt when a third party candidate challenges the entire election in Federal Court. Once that is out the way all the lawyers are scrambling to get a favorable decision from Judge Abernathy. Meanwhile, Cary and the other fourth year associates have found some ideal office space but to meet the price, he may have to withdraw his offer to Kalinda. It turns out the building is owned by Colin Sweeney and he has an interesting offer for them that includes his $22 million per year in legal services. Written by garykmcd

Good Wife Season Finale: It Could Have Even Been Better ***1/2
29 April 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Zack witnesses voter tampering. Nice to see Estelle Parsons,Oscar winner in 1967 for "Bonnie and Clyde," in this episode. As a poll watcher, Parsons does a good job of hiding her worsening mental state. A wake up call for any Board of Elections hiring such people.

The irony here is that when the disputed votes favor Florrick, both sides in the controversy obviously take different approaches.

Nice to see that Gov.-elect Florrick's mother, Jackie, seems to be better, as she wants her young,dashing care-giver around.

From this show, Florrick has made it nicely. At the end of last season, he was elected Attorney General, and now he is governor.

Cary Agos is as sly as ever, and what's this as he comes to Alicia's door at the episode's end? We will have the summer to ponder this. Good luck.
