Episode cast overview, first billed only:


With Alicia home sick, Cary tells Diane Lockhart there are conditions attached to any possible merger. Diane decides not to proceed but David Lee has another prospective partner and they soon merge with Louis Canning's firm. Alicia also represents Finn Polmar, the ASA who was in the courtroom with Will Gardner when he was shot. It's clear the new State's Attorney has every intention of laying the blame for the shooting at Finn's feet. The NSA's surveillance of Alicia begins to unravel when one of the employees monitoring her seeks legal advice from the firm over a possible security infraction, eventually telling them of the surveillance. She warns Peter and he contacts a U.S. Senator who sits on the Intelligence Committee who assures him his conversations aren't being monitored. Peter has away of testing that and getting the NSA out of their lives. Written by garykmcd

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

Lewis Canning, the obnoxious attorney played admirably by Michael J. Fox, is no Will Gardner despite his claim. Kalinda was so justified by her response to that statement by Canning.

The NSA is at it again and Chris Noth, the governor, shows his mettle by getting that agency off his back as well as Alicia's.

When Alicia hesitates regarding the merger, Diane pulls back and David Lee offers up Canning, which all may assume should prove to be quite a liability in future episodes. Canning knows that everyone is after his hide. The man is paranoid in every sense of the word.

Did the prosecuting attorney do wrong by placing Will's killer within the general prison's population, that latter move setting off the tragedy which occurred?
