The Good Wife 4×14 –”Red Team/Blue Team:” This was a very good episode that was highly reminiscent of Season 1. I was interested in every plot line this week, and was paying attention to the entire episode. That hasn’t happened in a while.
I don’t like that Alicia accepted the partnership offer. Obviously it makes “real world” sense, but I don’t like what it does for the LG dynamic in the near future. I love Alicia and Cary working together as a team, and I have a feeling this latest move will just split them apart for good. That final image of Kalinda and Cary looking in at Alicia through the glass was so sad. Alicia belongs with those two, not with the partners.
I even liked Eli’s storyline for a change. This character hasn’t been right since he set up shop at LG, but he and Elspeth are great together. I knew Elspeth would triumph over the shady DoJ guy in the end, yet I still cheered when Eli got the accordian player to admit there were only two dirty calls, not three.
The mock trial was great, too. That was a first for the show and it was cool to see the fourth years pitted against the name partners — and I’m glad Alicia and Cary won. Will is too damn smug for his own good.
And finally, the Will-Alicia kiss. I’m not a fan of this particular couple, but I prefer almost anyone to Alicia and Peter, so whatever.
