Good, satisfying episode
25 November 2013 | by (El Salvador) – See all my reviews

This episode was good. Not as great as the ones we've been watching but at least we're not suffering a Kalinda's husband-like plot…yet.

It was great to see old faces around. I like that this show is keen to resurrect good actors. It was a pleasant surprise to see that Mary Stuart Masterson looks incredible and Jason O'Mara is good in this kind of roles but I'm a little bit concerned because (a) We have seen this shady kind of guy in "The Good wife" before and it wasn't that fun in the long run; and (b) I have nothing against O'Mara's performance but I already saw him playing Bill Croelick on "The Closer".

Having Mary Beth Peil as Jackie Florrick is always a delight. Almost all the time is just to play the mother we love to hate, but on this episode it was strangely good and entertaining plotting against a former rival and understanding her point of view. I'm glad she handled things personally instead of putting her son's career in risk (again).
