The eyes don't lie
5 November 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Christine Baranski's Diane is unleashed during this episode. The emotional roller coaster she goes on in this episode shows the great writing and great acting on this show. The entire cast & writers proves this is one of, if not, the best show on TV right now. Diane, Alicia, Will and the rest of the cast kept me riveted right to the end. I can't wait to see Diane unleashed. The look in Diane's eyes during this episode said more than Diane did with words. Christine is a great actress and I think we are about to see Emmy award acting from her this season. Word to the writers: Don't hold back, let the emotions flow, let the realism enter this world and let the fighting begin. This episode also show Alicia coming into her own but can she become a great lawyer without help from her husband, the Governor? And it is true what they say: It's a thin line between love and hate, and Will is proving that trying to stop his feelings for Alicia. And if I forgot to mention, great episode.
