Alicia and Will once again face each other in court when they represent opposing clients in a dispute over a successful song. Tactics plays a role as much as the law as they both try to distract the other in court. Cary may have found a way for their clients to win but it's Robyn who saves the case. After hearing that Marilyn Garbanza is pregnant and intends to name her son Peter, Eli hires Kalinda to find out who the father is. What she finds points in the very direction Eli was hoping to stay away from. When Eli receives a call from an aggressive journalist he fears the worse - but the information in the journalist's hands is far worse than he could have imagined. Written by garykmcd

Good as an idea but not so well executed
6 January 2014 | by ciffouSee all my reviews

This was a well done episode, but it just doesn't match the others we have seen so far during the course of this season. To return with it seems like an odd choice. They went to hiatus with a party and as a "Good Wife" fan, I'm used to watching it unfold in several, unexpected ways. I guess it was too expensive to have all the guest stars reunited yet again.

It was good to see the "Glee" scandal but it alone couldn't sustain the whole episode. It eventually got boring. But all and all, I have to applaud the guy playing Ryan Murphy. He was dead on.

I have to agree with some of the comments I have found on the threads before: the whole Marilyn thing doesn't make much sense, especially because the way she was introduced - she would right away understand the seriousness of the whole thing. She was not supposed to be this dumb.

Not a fan of Damian, but I guess that's good since he's helping Will to become the obnoxious guy he's turning into (I'm glad though that someone reminded Diane about her decision to leave). But Jenna is supposed to seem like a riddle - she's not. She's not likable at all and I don't get how Kalinda would invest so much time on someone like her in the first place.
