The writers on this show do a fantastic job of conveying tension between the characters. For example, the love triangle among Kalinda, Cary, and Dana was a huge focus of this episode. Anything happening between any of them not only affects their personal lives, but also will affect the States Attorneys Office an/d Lockhart Gardner because of the conflicts of interest. In the end, I don't think we know whether Cary walked out on Kalinda or went to lock the door. With some of the other story lines (e.g., Will, Alicia, Jackie), the writers gave us just enough to keep them in the back of our minds. Can't wait until next week!
It starts to look like the writers are getting desperate to attract more horndog straight guys to watch, since they're all bloody bonkers over phony "lesbians".
As a horndog straight guy, I take exception to your description of me as a horndog straight guy. When D checked K's label, I really thought that's where it was headed, and I'm disappointed nothing developed. Yes, it would be a cynical ploy to grab the over 40 male demographic, but it beats debates over capital punishment.
Cary and Kalinda have always used each other. It's just a game they play. If Kalinda can play with Cary's head to help Will, like she said she'd do, I'd say do it. As for Cary and Kalinda as a couple (Carinda? Kalary?), Kalinda has already said they'd be like combining spaghetti with hydrogen.
But I do NOT want to see Kalinda and Dana as a couple, and I shake my head at anybody who does. It's really getting boring the way they seem to pair up Kalinda unrealistically with every "pretty woman" who comes along. It starts to look like the writers are getting desperate to attract more horndog straight guys to watch, since they're all bloody bonkers over phony "lesbians". (Haven't these guys figured out yet that that would mean they'd be getting even LESS sex than they do now?)
I actually enjoyed this episode, but I admit, I have enjoyed them all.
Liked that Kalinda came to Will about Peter's investigation. (Or is it Dana's? She's very interested in getting something on Will.) They've always had each others backs. She will use Carey, Dana, and Peter, too, if need be to help Will.
Funny that Alicia thinks that Peter doesn't care if she has a thing with Will. When he asked her if Peter knew about them she said he wouldn't care. He loves her, albeit too late, and he's not about losing her to Will
He thinly veiled investigation into Lockhardt/Gardner is evidence of that.
This episode seems to be a rehash of many previous story lines without much advancement. When I saw The Old Snoop appear at Alicia's door, I thought, "Here we go again." I don't think there is any chemistry between the 2 C's.and this episode had not enough Eli or Will or Diane which made the whole show, IMHO, pretty bland.
I like Cary and Kalinda together, as friends. I think there is a chemistry there, but, sometimes the flirting and the teasing is the best part of a friendship such as theirs. I love seeing these two together but making them a couple would stifle the energy between them. Eli is always a delight to watch. I enjoy the entire cast and the show is on my 'have to watch' list.
No, I want Kalinda and Dana to be an item.
I thought this was a good episode, definitely deserved more than 3 stars.
I don't care one way or the other about Kalinda/Cary. I doubt they would have a relationship though. I think both are too untrusting of the other's intentions at this point. I think Kalinda does like Cary but wouldn't put it past her to use him to help Will either.
Definitely agree that the Zach/Marissa storyline has at least some potential. And as usual, loved the Will/Alicia conversation.
I've already seen three females in the past month that have had better chemistry with Cary and Kalinda. I like both characters a lot, but they really don't work as a couple. I wish the writers would give up on that. I would actually buy a Kalinda/Dana relationship far more than a Kalinda/Cary one.
I don't know why so many dislike Cary and Kalinda. I actually prefer Cary and Kalinda since the beginning. I kind of believe Kalinda cares about Cary and the kiss wasnt about messing with his head. I think they had a moment and she kissed him. But at same time she doesn't know what she wants so she told him 'idk' which made Cary leave.
Cary and Dana have far more chemistry than C and K. But then K is probably just trying to help Will by cosying up to Cary.
Can't see Zach and Marissa going v far.
Jackie's snooping made me cringe. I hope Alicia finds out and puts an absolute ban on the old witch.
Will and Diane are increasingly at opposite ends of the political spectrum and are definitely keeping a lot from one another.
Still watchable, despite the death sentence and political candidate sideshows, which seemed to me like old ground gone over once again.
I think cary and kalinda are more that doomed, toying type couple where they just use each other constantly and have physical attraction, but they like to be in each others heads. Which is pretty good. It's very human. I think she is just trying to help will by messing with both him and Dana, subtly. Throw them off on their investigation. I like it, it adds a type of sick love triangle. Dana likes cary, cary likes kalinda, and kalinda can so get away with liking both. Lol. I'm all for this drama.
Eli as always - excellent - Will's comment to Alicia - great - Zach and Marissa - enjoyed - Jackie - trouble maker - story line - so so - Cary and Kalinda - all for it - this show, dispite some weak storylines, is still a must-see for me - it makes Sunday night worthwhile -
Eli and his PR side story was boring. Loved Eli and his daughter Marissa. I'm against Cary and Kalinda as a couple. They are more interesting as friends then as sex partners.
There are a lot of Kalinda, Cary, which is good. Dana is cool, I like her. There is no Catlin, great. Catlin is a fully redundant, I know she would come back but if she never come back would make me very happy.Do not waste the audience's time，please. But Diane is still too little.
C/K is ok, C/D is ok too.
I enjoyed a lot this episode. Eli was at his best once again. I just love his facial expressions every time one of this candidates gets into trouble.
I do not think that Cary and Kalinda would make a great couple, but I do not think the writers are trying to sell them to us as a couple. They simply provide moments of "will or won't they".
Matt, I think you are way too strict sometimes. definitely around a 4+. I really enjoyed the moral dilemma surrounding the death penalty. And as of yet, I do not have problems with cary and kalinda. definitely should give the couple a shot.
Agree. Cary and Kalinda together - bad idea. I mean really, its BAD IDEA!!! For what? Its not impressive. I like them on the verge. Plus Kalinda better with girls..... maybe she and Dana))))))))))))
I thought kalinda was helping Will by trying to use carey. since carey is leading the investigation on Will on Peters orders. That was my theory slutat.
I'm also not into Cary and Kalinda. They've both had better chemistry with others and I don't think it would be a good thing for Kalinda's character.
Very good comment. This is a very mediocre episode. I worry that this continues to be the audience's patience vanished.
