Isaiah's The World Today Just Nuts "The Nation Bullpen" went up last night. Katty van van's looking bad.
Every Sunday night on CBS, "The Good Wife."
Let me start with the most minor story first. Alicia's on her CPU (not laptop -- why was never explained) and she comes across a search for condoms. She goes to her son and asks him if he's still dating the 15-year-old and do they need to have a talk? No, why? He explains it wasn't him and that he knows how to clear the cache if he searches for something he doesn't want people to see. Besides, Grace is dating Connor.
So Alicia goes to her daughter. And her daughter is grossed out (and she is Christian and tells her mother she can say "Christian" and not "a Christian"). So Alicia doesn't know what to think. She asks Grace if she's being a good girl and I thought that was stupid and beneath Alicia. Grace having sex or thinking of having sex wouldn't make her a "bad girl."
So Zach plays around with the computer and finds out the search was the night of Thanksgiving Day ("We were all here," Alicia notes) and that it was right after "grandma" checked her e-mail. Alicia asks if he means her mother? No, Jackie. Okay, they decide to never speak of it. (Jackie must be thinking she and her therapist are going to get freaky.)
Kalinda either scared her ex-husband out of town or she killed him. The look on her face has me saying she killed him. I could be wrong. He told Alicia he didn't want to have Carey represent him anymore because Carey called him a drug addict. She stepped down the hall, came back and told him they didn't need his business. He said some things, she asked Kalinda if she needed to be worried? Kalinda said she'd handle it and did.
The feds are investigating Eli. They say that he may have illegally gotten contributions for his ex-wife's campaign. Diane goes with him to a meeting and she hands over paperwork proving that is not the case. She points out Eli is in the middle of Peter's campaign for governor and he can't have a cloud over his head. So the guy wants a proffer. What? He wants Eli to give evidence on Peter.
Eli tells him to go to hell. The fed then tells Diane to tell her client, when he calms down, to call. She tells him to go to hell. "Him" by the way was the same actor that played (old) Christine's brother on "The New Adventures of Old Christine."
So the big court case?
This I hated. And I guess it happens, though I don't see how. A woman was killed. Will is defending the accused in their county (Cook?). Alicia is helping the prosecution in another county as they try to prosecute another man for the same crime.
I don't see how you can have that happen. It's scary if it can.
Amanda Peet played Will's opponent. I think she and Will are going to have an affair.
I've liked Peet since the days of "Jack and Jill" but she's getting pretty annoying in this rolle. They just give her one note to play: Gloating.
It was an episode where the little stories were more important than the case.
Going out with C.I.'s "Iraq snapshot:"
