Review

Britain’s very own Marc Warren turns up in the first of a new series of this glossy, clever legal soap opera, as a thuggish man from kickass investigator Kalinda’s past. After the pair have a smackdown fight in a lift at the Chicago legal firm of Lockhart Gardner, they end up in bed together. Talk about mixed messages. The Good Wife herself, Alicia Florrick, has to defend her own son against trumped-up charges when the family car is stopped by a zealous police officer. Her husband Peter, currently running for Governor and trying to present a clean family image, intervenes but it threatens to backfire spectacularly.

The episode is dedicated to the show’s British executive producer, Tony Scott, who committed suicide last August.

Summary
