Review - The Good Wife Season 1 Episode 14 Hi

No more new episodes until March 2, but we got a cliffhanger that should keep everyone interested. After dragging Peter's trial the entire season with every sort of obstacle thrown in the way, but he's finally back home. Many awkward family moments await. Alicia doesn't know what to do, and her kids aren't sure either

The appeal proceedings were just as good as the result. Kalinda is put on the stand by Childs, but has a secret weapon in her back pocket to solve everything. She has considerable dirt on the judge and his creepy sexual predilections, so the only thing the judge can do is give Peter a new trial, or risk having his life ruined by Kalinda.

The case of the week wasn't that interesting, but Alicia got into a sticky situation with the police coming and came out fine. Cary was tripping from mushrooms in the beginning of the episode so that got a few well-deserved laughs.

I would love to write more about the episode, but I'm swamped right now.

Score: 9.3/10

This was a great ep, one of the best of the season. I actually found the tension and fast pace of the case really interesting. Moreso than Peter's appeal. The only thing I didn't like was the pat conclusion.

It will be interesting going forward what happens between Peter/Alicia. I still ship Will/Alicia but right now, Peter is where the tension is.
