The Good Wife 5×19 — “Tying the Knot:” This episode was mostly boring to me. Colin Sweeney has been good in the past, but I think I’m over the character and his outlandish killings/spouse choices by now and don’t really see the point of his appearances. I guess it lends some semblance of continuity to the overarching storylines to see the same clients pop back in with different cases, but honestly I’d rather see the guy that makes human hair extensions show up again. I’ve had enough of Sweeney.
I’m not all that interested in the Finn for S.A. storyline either. But I guess The Good Wife needs a political angle to keep Peter and Eli somewhat relevant, so this is what we’re stuck with. Oh, well.
I’m not very clear on what Diane did to Alicia there at the end. I know she contrived to get Colin to offer to bribe Alicia so that Alicia’s testimony would be tainted, which ultimately helped Diane’s client. But I don’t get if that was an underhanded move (against Alicia) on Diane’s part or if she was just being a good lawyer. I hope it’s the latter, because Alicia has pulled her fair share of tricks to get clients off and I really do want her and Diane to get along.
Just a few more eps left in the season, then I’m outta here.
