What I’m Watching: The Good Wife

The Good Wife: Season 7, Episode 16 “Hearing” (B)

This episode provided just as many answers as it did questions, so I guess that’s something. It’s jarring in a good way to see Alicia relaxing half-naked in bed with Jason, who apparently is in her apartment just about every night as they make the most of their relationship outside of work. The many knocks at her door were irritating but expected, and naturally Veronica and Owen would be far more intrusive than usual family members as they eagerly introduced themselves to Jason and then offered him bagels. To his credit, Jason is a terrific investigator, capable of putting the pieces of a puzzle together quickly and then figuring out the best way to resolve the situation, which in this case was to make sure that Veronica got her money back. Alicia’s lunch with Diane confirmed that this all-female firm idea is actually brewing, and it’s a shame since there’s no way that Cary comes out okay from all this, which he doesn’t deserve, especially after the loyalty he’s demonstrated to both Alicia and Lucca. Eli was his typical ridiculous self, frantically trying to rush into the accessible bathroom at the courthouse so that he could overhear the grand jury testimony and figure out what the case against Peter was about. Mike Tascioni proved just as peculiar and resourceful as his ex-wife, managing to get plenty of information about the case by dropping a few hints based on what Eli overheard. Matthew Morrison is an interesting choice to play the prosecutor, and it should be intriguing at the very least to watch this case proceed.
