Storyline

Alicia is shocked to learn that a former client, the deceased Matthew Ashbaugh, has left her $12 million in his will. The widow, Lila Ashbaugh, contests it and hires LD to represent her. Will argues that Alicia used undue influence in getting Ashbaugh to change his will. Kalinda continues vetting Damian Boyle but runs up against a detective who owes Boyle a favor and seems intent on keeping her in jail, at least overnight. Alicia agrees to invite Peter to the new firm's Christmas party and has to invite mother-in-law Jackie as well - but forgets to invite her own mother. Eli's not too pleased with Peter's decision to attend when he sees the guest list. Written by garykmcd

I made an IMDb account for this episode
2 December 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I've always enjoyed the good wife. But the past 6 or 7 episodes have been absolutely amazing. Easily the most enjoyable show on television this year.

The writing, the acting, and the directing have all cylinders running. You even get the feeling that everyone on the show is having a blast with every episode.

I made an IMDb account to rate tonight's show and write this review. It was almost magical.

Thank you for that.

Chris
