Discussion [Spoilers & Photo]


In this episode of The Good Wife, Stern & Lockhart need to find ways to cut costs or increase revenue. When presented with the opportunity to represent a drug dealer, they have to decide if their ethics will get in the way. Also, someone begins tweeting about Alicia and her husband… the question is, who is leaking the information?

My thoughts:

  • Why doesn’t Peter trust Alicia?
  • Should Alicia have said the condoms weren’t hers?
  • Would Cary be your first guess for the leak? Why?
  • Would you have issues representing a drug dealer?
  • Who do you think they’ll get in to the firm?
  • The end…. will they be bad? Oh, I hope not!!

    Q 1) He is projecting his own feelings of guilt on to her.

    Q2) Yes, but she was ticked at Peter for doubting her and so let him stew.

    Q3) No. I think he is so confident in himself (maybe wrongly) that he doesn’t feel the need to stoop to that.

    Q4) Yes, especially since he routinely murders people as a noral business decision.

    Q5) I don’t know, but it would be fun if it were Peter.

    Q6) I doubt it.
