The Good Wife Season 2 Episode 4 (10/19/10)
The Good Wife wove together a series of detailed plots this week, all of which have far-reaching consequences. This is what went down:
- Sick of Blake treating her with such little respect, Kalinda went off on his rental car, smashing its windows with a baseball bat and sending him a message. These two then had a confrontation that was filled with both anger and sexual tension.
- Alicia defended a club DJ accused of contributing to the deaths of five people at a rave. The man's co-defendant was the club's security team, which was represented by a returning Nancy Crozier (Mamie Gummer). In the end, Alicia did what was best for her client, got him to only have to pay a small settlement and played some hard ball with Crozier.
- Alicia was also involved in an ethics scandal, as Cary deposed her for allegedly leaking Childs' deposition to a journalist. We later learned she didn't do this, of course, but we shocked at who did: Judge Adler, who was planning a third party run for state's attorney.
- But Eli got Diane to confront and blackmail the judge. Still, the judge had the final word: she introduced a different third party candidate at a major gala: Wendy Scott-Carr, one of Childs' associates.
