Episode cast overview, first billed only:


Alicia represents James Paisley who is in the process of competing a $3.2 billion merger. He is also being sued by the former CFO who claims he was fired because he was gay. Louis Canning agrees to a $140,000 settlement but decides to go to court after Paisley suggests in a TV interview that the 1% are being victimized and are like the Jews in Nazi Germany. His first try at apologizing only puts him into a deeper hole. A third attempt, by Alicia, blows up in her face as well. At LG meanwhile, Diane is working with Rayna Hecht on a major class-action lawsuit and she's certain that Louis Canning is up to no good. In fact, he's trying to recruit the company they're suing as potential clients. Peter Florrick meanwhile hesitates to pursue his endorsement of Finn Polmar after James Castro suggests that Finn and Alicia are lovers. Written by garykmcd

5.21 is ****
12 May 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Very good episode where client Tom Skerritt keeps putting his foot in his mouth. He is accused of firing someone from his company as the latter was gay. In the meantime, he goes on television and keeps on bringing up analogies of Anne Frank and Jews living in Nazi Germany, as well as the Greek people being spoken of in a disdainful way.

Peter is shown evidence by Eli Gold that Alisha may have been seeing the new candidate for attorney general. Chris Noth, in his usual gentle demeanor, refutes everything and Alisha is able to substantiate the pictures.

Diane discovers finally that Lewis Canning has been trying to sabotage the firm all along. Where has she been on this?
