Hot on the heels of yet another emotionally charged episode, wherein we saw Alicia succumb to her grief, Diane make an executive decision, Kalinda take out the trash and the epic Florrick kitchen fight, The Good Wife brings back the NSA in this coming Sunday’s episode.
In ‘All Tapped Out’, while in the midst of a NSA whistleblower case, Florrick/Agos becomes privy to the fact that the firm itself has been under the NSA’s surveillance. Even worse? So has Alicia’s personal life. Judging by the look Peter got when she walked out of her bedroom and saw him standing there, followed by their fight? Alicia is on a rampage fueled by her grief and therefore, will not be happy about this. To me, this shouldn’t come as a surprise and I hope she decides to have all kinds of weird and misleading conversations on her phone just to mess with them. I’m sure Owen would be thrilled to help with that!
In addition to dealing with this new turn of events, Alicia takes on the task of going after the State’s Attorney, defending Finn, after they find out that he’s trying to make him the scapegoat in Jeffrey Grant’s case. This is just, overall, a bad idea for Alicia. This case is personal. Extremely personal. Will Alicia be able to keep her feelings out of it? Has she ever had to do that for a case of this magnitude to her, personally? I don’t think so. It will be interesting to see how she handles it all.
This episode also brings with it the return of the Michael J. Fox character, Louis Canning, whose presence and “I’m the new Will” line cause Kalinda to throw a baseball at his head. Unfortunately, she misses. At the end of the last episode, we saw Canning receive a phone call from David Lee about a merger. Now, Diane is left to deal with working alongside him as he joins Lockhart/Gardner.
Dear Robert and Michelle King: Not the merger we were interested in. Fix this, please. Thank you.
