The Good Wife 2.16 “Great Firewall”
Air Date: March 1, 2011
Discussion, Full Video

Summary: The law firm of Lockhart, Gardner and Bond sues a social networking site on behalf of a Chinese dissident, who posted an anonymous blog about democracy in China, and was jailed and tortured by the Chinese government when the site failed to protect his anonymity and turned over his IP address. Meanwhile, Eli gets a tip that he hopes will drive Childs out of the race, and Will and Diane hope to wrestle the firm away from Derrick Bond once and for all.

  • Is Alicia surprised that her firm has different motives for taking the China case?
  • Is there ever a right reason to do something?
  • What did you think of Becca in this episode?
  • Will Alicia consider leaving? Or is her firm more moral, overall, anyway?
  • Why did Cary kiss Kalinda?
  • Why did Kalinda really send around those change of address cards?
  • Where is Blake still??
  • Are you glad the Childs issue is over?
  • Are you glad at the outcome of the vote for Bond?

    ■Is Alicia surprised that her firm has different motives for taking the China case?
    – I believe she was! She seemed not only surprised but also maybe angry? Based on her views of similar situations on the show I think that she wants to do things for the right reasons. She wants to believe that there is good in everyone.

    ■Is there ever a right reason to do something?
    – Yes. My question is.. is there a reason you would do the wrong thing for the right reason? I feel like I am back in one of my ethics courses. LOL I love this show, it really makes you think sometimes.

    ■What did you think of Becca in this episode?
    – I personally, am confused with Becca. I am sure thats the point to keep the viewers wondering. This is one of the many wonders of the show. Does she really want Zach or is she just using him for some other purpose? If she good and bad unintentionally?

    ■Will Alicia consider leaving? Or is her firm more moral, overall, anyway?

    ■Why did Cary kiss Kalinda?
    ■Why did Kalinda really send around those change of address cards?
    ■Where is Blake still??
    ■Are you glad the Childs issue is over?
    ■Are you glad at the outcome of the vote for Bond?

    Whoops. My laptop key got stuck. I will finish the questions:

    ■Will Alicia consider leaving? Or is her firm more moral, overall, anyway?
    – I think she might be considering it. Her reaction to Will’s answer was not happy. Also, she has walked in, seen, or heard quite a few conversations/actions at the firm that haven’t been very good lately. Especially in this episode. I think they were showing Alicia seeing all this for reason.

    If Peter wins the race, that would make him Cary’s boss too and she will be against him a lot, I just thought of that, kinda of off topic. :)

    ■Why did Cary kiss Kalinda?
    – I have no idea!!!! I wish I had more to say about this, but this is another wonder of the show. Kalinda in general (who I love, her character is great). I love that Cary is being sneaky to help her, it shows that despite his anger with being fired he still can do the right thing.

    ■Why did Kalinda really send around those change of address cards?
    – Thats a good question, see above. Love both Cary and Kalinda!

    ■Where is Blake still??
    – Good question, if you figure that out let me know. :p

    ■Are you glad the Childs issue is over?
    – Yes. However, it did make for an interesting storyline. I don’t think Childs is going away though.. He is angry… just like Cary was. Wonder what he will do? Start his own firm with Cary and the now former partner at Lockhart & Gardner????? HMMMM….. :) More Cary! :p

    ■Are you glad at the outcome of the vote for Bond?
    – See above!
