Cary Agos has accepted the plea deal and the day has arrived to turn himself in. He's spending most of that day with a consultant who is meant to prepare him for what he can expect in prison. When Kalinda approaches Lemond Bishop to see if there's someone in prison who could watch his back she learns an important fact - the drugs in the case were in Chicago a few weeks before Cary supposedly advised Bishop's crew on how to import it and therefore the charge doesn't stand. Judge Cuesta refuses to withdraw Cary's plea agreement however unless Diane can prove the State's Attorney's office knew this beforehand. Alicia meanwhile is having trouble preparing for her debate with Prady but gets help from an unexpected source. Written by garykmcd

How interesting. As he is about to be sentenced, Cary meets with a prison consultant who begins to instruct him on how to survive his prison term and how to relax just before sentence is passed.

While this is occurring, Diane and Kalinda work feverishly to find last minute evidence that shall clear Cary. It is just terrific what they have to go through, even if it means breaking the law in order to secure his freedom.

Alicia goes through mock debates in preparation for her big one and one with her opponent. Even the governor participates as her foe, and she really socks it to him, questioning his ability in governing when it comes to crime.

Matt Czuchry is splendid as the brilliant guy who seems to have exhausted all his ways to avoid prison. He surely gave a bravura performance.
