The Good Wife airs on CBS Sunday nights.
The new season kicked off this week. Last season had a cliff hanger, Alicia and Will meeting at the hotel. She'd ended it with her husband. Was she about to start things with Will?
They tried to play you.
For most of the episode Will and Alicia were at odds. So much so that Christine Baranski even pulled Will aside and told him he was being too hard on her.
After that, we saw Will and Alicia and learned they were involved but trying to throw everyone off. Again, this was like half-way into the show.
Alicia had a big case where her client was accused of killing a guy in a hate crime. The guy was Jewish, the client was Muslim.
Alicia proved herself to be partner material (no one said that, I just thought that watching). And Kalinda solved it. It was the Muslim's Muslim roommate that killed the Jewish guy. Why?
The two were lovers. Then they broke up. It wasn't a hate crime, it was a crime of passion.
Alicia came off well except for the Kalinda thing. She's looking like a real drip refusing to forgive Kalinda.
(Last season, Alicia found out that a few years back, before she and Kalinda knew each other, Kalinda was one of the many women Alicia's husband slept with. When Alicia found out, she ended their friendship.)
It was a good opener. Oh, Carey. He and Alicia were both interns the first season. Then they had to pick one associate to keep and went with Alicia. Which made Carey hate her even more. Now he's working for the state (for Alicia's husband, actually). Anyway, his hair looked bizarre. Like someone took hedge clippers to it.
