The Good Wife
"The Good Wife" airs on CBS, Sunday nights, second to last hour of prime time.
The most recent episode, aired Sunday, was a strong one.
The firm had handled a divorce. The wife had wanted to be sure that her husband didn't get custody. Dan (? -- he's the uncle of the intern) hired a stripper to get the guy drunk so he would get a DUI (which he did) but the stripper ended up sleeping with him.
The husband and wife reconciled -- after their divorce, after their community property was sold off -- and were claiming the firm split them up to profit from the divorce.
And were bringing up the stripper. But Dan denied hiring her (at all, even to get the guy drunk). There was a new issue once the dead end was reached on the hiring, the firm made more money from the sale of one asset than the wife did. And they needed a form she'd signed that would cover them on that.
If it was ever signed, it was probably lost. Dan created a new one (Alicia thinks).
In addition, you had Will looking for an attorney to avoid the state attorney's special prosecutor. He didn't like his choice, he didn't like Diane's. He asked Alicia about the lawyer she had to get off the terrorism charges and Alicia said she was different but good.
And she is. Even if she may have forced an indictment against Will by the end of the episode.
When the form was missing, by the way, and Alicia couldn't remember attaching it or signing it, Kalinda offered to put down that Alicia could remember (to save her from Diane).
It was a strong episode. Even Carey had a good moment.
