The Good Wife

November 7, 2011 by staff 

The Good Wife, Lockhart Gardner lawyers aren’t always great at dealing with pesky human emotions. And, frankly, neither is The Good Wife.

Lately, there’s been so much feeling going on — Will confessing his love for Alicia, Eli insisting that he was betrayed by his ex, Diane experiencing pangs of guilt about limiting her pro bono cases — that I sometimes long for the days when everyone could put all that personal drama aside and concentrate on what’s really important: winning.

Also: keeping your cell phone on vibrate when you’re having a “late lunch” with your boyfr… I mean, boss. But mostly: winning.

So I was thrilled to see everyone get way more aggressive this week. The best part? Will versus Peter in a fight to the death! Or maybe just a fight to… harsh words? “You’re pitiful,” snarls Will at Peter. “Get a pair of balls and throw a punch.”

But they’re not the only ones acknowledging some tension between them. After hearing Alicia’s annoying heymompickupthephone! ring in the background during a phone call with Will, Diane’s pushing harder against her partner’s not-so-secret relationship. (Though, according to that sexual harassment video, “pushing harder against” might not be the most appropriate turn of phrase.) Plus, Alicia’s making the Treasury Secretary’s job so difficult, he’ll soon be stress-eating his way through his billionth box of red velvet cupcakes.

Let’s start with Alicia’s case, since it poses what might be the stickiest problem. Normally, Alicia’s only concerned with the best interests of her client and (by extension) the firm. But this week, things are getting more complicated. What’s good for the client isn’t necessarily what’s good for the firm. And, worse, what’s good for the firm isn’t necessarily what’s good for Alicia.
