The season six premiere last week was so intense that I couldn’t wait to see what was going to happen this week!
Cary is still in jail and Alicia, Kalinda, and Diane are doing what they can to get him out. The only obstacle is doing so without Lemond Bishop (Mike Colter) having to testify. He warned them that if he’s called to testify, they lose his bail money. Unfortunately once Alicia took the stand to get Cary out, information came out and now Bishop will be getting a subpoena from the court.
After losing the money from Bishop, she tried taking out a second mortgage, but that would require signatures from her and Peter. Well, we all know how that went. In walked Ernie Nolan (Michael Gaston) who is very wealthy and wants to offer to pay Cary’s bail without interest. The only catch was she had to consider running for State’s Attorney because he wasn’t happy with the job that James Castro (Michael Cerveris) has been doing,
Diane is officially leaving Lockhart, Gardner and wants to take a new recruit from New York with her. After seeing the office in complete chaos, Dean Levine-Wilkins (Taye Diggs) was worried and excited to join the firm. But he’s not alone. After voting with everyone, the firm is now Florrick, Argos, Lockhart. Let’s just take a moment to enjoy Diane’s walkout and saying goodbye to the office.
The only thing I’m not interested in is Eli’s desperate attempts to get Alicia to run for States Attorney. She’s never shown any interest in previous seasons that I don’t get why he thinks she’ll run. He got so desperate that he asked Valerie Jarrett to convince her to run… well, show her some encouragement. Then he created a fake poll that could make Alicia look bad, that it actually proved that many people like her and would vote for her.
Who knew Bishop was such a soccer dad? It was funny to see that side of him. Kalinda is working to find out who, out of the three people who met with Cary, is the person that was wearing the wire. After meeting with the three men, Kalinda knew based on the voices which of the three wore the wire. When they called two out of the three men to testify, Castro and Finn Polmar (Matthew Goode) knew immediately they knew who recorded the conversation. Things took a bad turn when one of the innocent man was found dead. What’s worse is that he was the best option of getting Cary out of prison.
One of the side story lines was a lawsuit that Cary was working on about poaching. Thankfully Alicia took charge, along with the other Cary [Zepps] (Ben Rappaport) and won it for their client, giving them the money needed to bail Cary out of jail. The final moment of the episode shows Alicia and Cary reuniting and hugging… for the first time!
After six seasons, ‘The Good Wife’ still knows how to keep you hooked. Minus the State’s Attorney storyline, I can’t wait to see where the rest of the season is going to take us.
