This Episode ***1/2
17 March 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

While Alicia makes an important keynote address, she struggles to come up with her speech. Cary Agos wants her to put her best foot forward.

While doing this, she thinks back to the time when her husband has been jailed and she seeks employment. Taking a position that turns out to be a para legal, she meets up with Will and the rest is history. When you see this, you realize that Will basically gave her her start and you begin to think if she did the right thing by exiting Lockhart-Gardner.

Our quirky red-head lawyer is at it again and the scene with the anti-Semite, dressed as a bear is bewildering. Wait to you see who that woman goes with in deciding who will be her attorneys. I guess that being quirky often pays off.
