The Good Wife Episode 3-2 Review: The Death Zone

Alicia is currently in the middle of many things and being pulled from every direction. First, there’s her thing with Will which would be a problem if came into the open. This then leads to Alicia splitting with Peter, the reason Diane suspects for Peter wanting an audit. Will agrees with Diane at the end of the episode that they’ll get rid of Alicia if she works against their interests, but this issue clearly isn’t that simple. At home, Alicia has to assuage her children’s worries about the situation while keeping the truth from them. Again, there’s no easy answer to these problems.

The case of the week was basically a British invasion with foreign laws and customs, creating a new minefield which proved to be humorous The ending of the case did feel hammy, though, with the Twitter usage and confession, but it did feel kind of appropriate what with all the seemingly silly legal hoops beforehand.

Kalinda and Eli meet for what Kalinda says is the first time, and it’s not surprise that the two savviest characters on the show work well together. I’m looking forward to seeing them work together the next time which I’m sure will be interesting. Eli sure seemed to remember Kalinda from somewhere, so I’m guessing he’ll remember eventually and begin to connect the dots regarding Alicia’s mindset.

Score: 8.8/10
