The Good Wife: Season 3, Episode 16 “After the Fall” (B+)
Things sure change quickly following the suspension of a name partner in a law firm. The immediate plays by both Julius and David Lee to take Will’s spot weren’t too surprising, but Eli volunteering himself for the slot was considerably less expected. David sitting down directly across from his office to stare him down was quite hilarious, and he’s sure to feel scorned now that Alicia has fired him as her divorce attorney. Peter having to hire a friend as an ASA to get himself the keynote speaker job is just one of a few stressful things currently facing Peter, and his employees are definitely feeling it. Eli now has to examine what might come next in his career, while Cary has to take the flak for demoting an employee not all too impressed with him. Will’s absence also created the opportunity for Caitlin to be swiftly promoted, something which Alicia is partially responsible for but clearly doesn’t want. That’s sure to create some tension, especially after Caitlin has been nothing but sweet and relatively hard-working. The case of the week, featuring Christian Camargo from the first season of “Dexter,” was compelling and disturbing, with no clear winner since the documentary about suicides didn’t help to save any lives. Will’s sisters are entertaining, and it’s funny that they thought that he was involved with Kalinda. Just wait until they meet Alicia – I’m sure they’re going to have plenty to say about her even though she’s far less scandalous than the bisexual investigator.
