5 November 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I thought that lawyers generally played hard-ball. I felt that was always in their nature so as to win a case. Now, Diane and Will, based on their experience with those who abandoned them, pledge to each other that they will play hard-ball against all competition.

Diane will stay with the firm now that the governor has taken her out of consideration for a judgeship. Talk about vindictiveness. It's all politics!

Alicia's apartment has become Grand Central Station. Hard to fathom that they're having so much difficulty securing offices. If you're willing to pay the high rent for office, there must be space somewhere.

Even Diane's new husband shows that he will play ball with the opposition when the situation arises.
