A licensed massage therapist who claims that she was sexually assaulted by a Nobel laureate at a Chicago hotel asks the firm to represent her; complications arise because the accused, Joe Kent, is known for work on behalf of women. Alicia and the partners leave the annual Bar Association dinner to deliberate. At the Bar Association dinner, a third candidate -- attorney Wendy Scott-Carr -- announces her run for state's attorney. Peter's attempt to convince her to be his deputy falls on deaf ears. In addition, Peter is drawn into the Kent case when his lawyer offers Kent's endorsement in return for getting Alicia's firm to drop the case.

During the bar association gala, the attendees are entertained by the Steppenwolf Theatre Company performing scenes from a play called "The Cow with No Country." Although Steppenwolf is a real (and acclaimed) Chicago theater company, there is no such play as "The Cow with No Country" (although the short pieces included during the gala scene show that it is a parody of the play "War Horse").
