Unanswered Whacks-Whack A Mole ***
25 November 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Was the teacher guilty of the Milwaukee bombing? This was not determined in a very confusing episode.

Pete's mother proves to us that she is a force to be reckoned with when she is able to get her son to deny a judgeship with a woman who once slept with her late husband, the governor's father.

In this episode, as Lockhart-Gardner attempts to hire new attorneys, Will shows how difficult he is becoming. Obvious choices are vetoed by him, and he shocks everyone by considering a mob attorney for a position. The latter steals the furniture of Florrick-Agos. Come on.

Technicalities seems to be the name of the game here where Alicia proves she can stand her ground by arguing a case in court with Will as the opposing attorney.
