What I’m Watching: The Good Wife

The Good Wife: Season 4, Episode 5 “Waiting for the Knock” (B+)

Once again, we have another returning character back for another round, and it’s Lemond Bishop, the seemingly angelic drug lord who uses Lockhart Gardner for his legitimate businesses. Annabella Sciorra was terrific as Leslie, his lawyer for his drug businesses, and I enjoyed the prickly interactions between her and Alicia and Diane. Having Lana be the one to lead the task force against Lemond was especially great since it put her and Kalinda in direct contact just as Nick was trying to prove to Kalinda that Lana is bad news. I doubt this is the last we’ll see of Jill Flint’s Lana, and I’m very curious to know why she’s been watching Kalinda and Eli. Cary, who hasn’t had much to do in a while, got a fun opportunity to cause trouble by getting in the way of the search, and I really liked his newfound bond with Clarke, who got to be productive for the first time in a while by revealing his accounting footnote expertise. Eli’s efforts to stop the story from coming out failed miserably, and Peter was certainly not happy to hear that he had involved Will in trying to intimidate the blogger into not running it. Maddie meeting with the supposed mistress was bold, and it seems all but guaranteed that she’s going to announce her candidacy for the governorship, something that will make Eli’s head explode and cause Alicia to do some serious contemplation about her role in the path to her decision to run.
