Episode 10: The Decision Tree

Summary

Alicia is shocked to discover that a former client has bequeathed her millions of dollars, but Lockhart & Gardner contests the will on behalf of the deceased man's wife. Meanwhile, Diane asks Kalinda to look into Damian's background, and Marilyn and Eli are concerned about Peter being seen with disreputable clients during a holiday party

Review

It’s Christmas, though no one actually says the C-word, preferring that ghastly, mimsy Americanism, “the holidays”. But try not to let the fact that Alicia and her new gang are throwing a “holiday party” put you off a particularly stylish and very clever episode.

Such is its all-round sure-footedness that The Good Wife, on its current form, does everything right. It even makes delectable use of flashbacks, which can be TV drama equivalents of speed bumps, as Alicia faces Will across a courtroom after she’s left $12 million by a grateful client. The pair’s romantic history comes back to haunt them both in ways that suggest that the fires of devotion are still smouldering.
