What I’m Watching: The Good Wife

The Good Wife: Season 6, Episode 10 “The Trial” (C)

I can understand that it’s relatively entertaining to think of Alicia having written a note in which she threatened to “knife” one of Grace’s teachers, but there’s no way that it makes any logical sense in actuality. Even if Alicia had thought it would be funny to pen such a letter as a joke, mentioning Grace’s teachers by name seems to be too far a stupid move. Much of the campaign continues to feel forced, including Prady’s insistence on playing nice when he does everything possible to subvert that and then feign innocence. Alicia’s attempts not to have an affair with Finn aren’t going well, and that’s going to backfire in a serious way even if nothing happens. There is far too much direct communication between Cary, Kalinda, and Lemond Bishop, and you’d think that someone would have made a deal with the state’s attorney’s office by this point that could both put Bishop in jail and guarantee the safety of the witness who took him down. The judge’s impatience related to scoring tickets for a big anniversary date with his wife made some sense even if it was silly and unprofessional, but there were two major threads introduced that felt completely random – Renee Elise Goldsberry’s Geneva Pine having an affair with John Ventimiglia’s Detective Gary Prima and Zak Orth’s partially deaf juror. It all got us to Cary entering a shocking plea of guilty. I can’t imagine that this show would send Cary off to years in prison, but things are not looking up right now.
