'The Good Wife' recap: Gone for good
Goodbye, Nick, we're not sorry to see you go.
But will Kalinda be sorry for whatever plan B was to get him out of town? Did Kalinda get rid of Nick ... permanently?
If the look on her face in the closing scene indicates anything, our favorite keeper of secrets has a very big one to add to the pile.
Meanwhile, at work, Alicia's embroiled in a case that tests her ethics. At home, she's involved in "The Mystery of Who Searched for Types of Condoms on the Computer," which ends up giving her (and everyone else) the shudders.
A tale of two cities
Will is defending Troy, a Chicago executive who's accused of murdering a girl at a music festival. Brandy was killed in Chicago, but her body was transported 50 miles to her hometown, Minooka.
In Minooka, there's an identical trial going on -- with Brandy's ex-boyfriend, Gary, as the defendant!
In Chicago, the judge has ruled that Will can't talk about the other trial -- unless the other defendant is found guilty. So, he sends Alicia to Minooka to help the prosecutor.
But two can play that game, and Laura Hellinger, who's prosecuting for Chicago, sends her colleague, Matan, to Minooka to help the defense. The four attorneys all arguing with each other -- Alicia teamed up with the prosecution, Matan teamed up with the defense -- are a pretty funny sight.
In Chicago, Kalinda finds evidence that proves the guilt of their client, Troy, but Will adamantly says they must defend him to the best of their ability. Alicia is torn -- are they really going to help send Gary, an innocent man, to prison?
In the end, both juries come back with guilty verdicts. Troy doesn't get away with it, at least. And Will tells Laura over drinks that they can now help Gary on his appeal.
Speaking of those drinks ... sparks are really flying between Will and Laura! And as much as we loved Will with Alicia, we could be on board with this pairing.
Eli's crunching election numbers at a local diner, when the guy sitting next to him starts a conversation. It seems innocent enough, until he introduces himself as David LaGuardia from the Department of Justice.
Freaked, Eli runs to Diane and asks her for help -- without telling Will or Alicia. If even a rumor of an investigation gets out, Peter's campaign will be sunk.
