'The Good Wife' Recap: Drinking With Kalinda in "Don't Fail"

What a solid almost ending to this season. I'm always a huge fan of contemplative Alicia (can we say "Mind's Eye?")

'The Good Wife' Recap: Things Fall Apart in "The Deconstruction"

There is nothing worse to watch than Alicia Florrick sobbing by herself in her apartment. All around, this episode was about how absurd and lonely life is. The show itself has come full circle, as Alicia has to give up her State's Attorney position in front of the press.

The Good Wife Recap: Back At the Beginning in "Winning Ugly"

Am I the only person thoroughly enjoying the sort of meta editing techniques like Alicia watching CBS News on mute and then turning up the volume when they're talking about her?

'The Good Wife' Recap: Scandal in 'Loser Edit'

So much scandal these days! This week opened with a very "Good Wife"-y montage of Alicia being interviewed by an evil journalist who wants to take her down. The email leak breaks and we see that it won't be an easy ride for Saint Alicia. Especially because there are some steamy emails between her and Will in the dump.

'Good Wife' Recap: All of Alicia's Men in 'Red Meat'

We have a winner! Alicia wins the race for state's attorney but is losing everywhere else. She tries to reach out to Prady, but he won't work with her. Finn, despite being adorable and buying her a video game, has a new girlfriend. Her campaign manager is leaving, having done a job well-done. And Peter? He is very, very low in my book.

'Good Wife' Recap: No More Saint Alicia in 'Open Source'

One thing was missing: mucho Kalinda. She was there, but not there. This is her last season, so I guess its good for them to taper her off instead of, well, shooting her in a courtroom like last season.

'Good Wife' Recap: All the Best Songs From 'Mind's Eye'

The editing last week was something else. And while she works out her career, an eviction suit coming from Canning, and some leftover parenting issues, the best part is when she remembers Will. Am I the only person who thought it was a perfect way to show how heartsick she still is? And then the music was perfect.

'The Good Wife' Recap: Can We Get Some Action? In 'Dark Money'

But can we get some action? I hate to admit this, but do you think it's possible that, despite the good writing and everything else, that this show's real purpose was in watching Will and Alicia maneuver around each other?

The Good Wife Recap: Too Soon for Ferguson Plot in 'The Debate'

Usually, when a plot uses real-life events for inspiration, it works on The Good Wife. But everything hit a wrong note with the Ferguson plot.

The Good Wife Recap: Herc Saves the Day in 'Hail Mary'

This return episode was necessary to set the stage and get the rest of the season moving, but other than that, it was a little slow.

The Good Wife Recap: No More Saint Alicia in "The Trial"

Alicia's finally owning her campaign and starting to accept the fact that she wants this. We see her stand up to Peter and his philandering ways. It's only been five years and she finally has a reason, and the guts, to tell him to shut up and get a hold of himself.

The Good Wife Recap: Can Alicia and Finn Get a Room Already? in 'Red Zone'

As her campaign gears up, there are a few unsettling things I don't understand.

A lot of people really liked this episode, especially after last week's installment. But I don't know about this.

The Good Wife Recap: Wine, Women, and Church Songs in 'Oppo Research'

What is Oppo Research, you ask? It's all the dirty, nasty things an opponent will dig up on you to sue against you in a campaign, as poor, saint Alicia finds out this week.

The Good Wife Recap: Girl Power in 'Dear God'

So now Alicia has been goaded into most likely running for State's Attorney, thanks to a little Gloria Steinem cameo and the fact that Castro is a really dirty, horrid little man. Not only is he gross, but he eggs her on by bringing up Will.

The Good Wife Recap: Pardon Our Dust in 'Trust Issues'

Sorry for the tardiness on the recap, guys, but I was trying to chew on Cary still in jail, Peter snapping at Alicia, and Taye Diggs. Just everything about him.

The Good Wife Recap: Is She Wearing Panties? And Other Scandals in 'The Line'

Karen Fratti | Posted 11.24.2014 | Entertainment
Karen Fratti

Predictions: It takes all season to figure out is Alicia will run. Diane won't join the firm unless they drop Bishop or something to keep clients. Eli's daughter sticks around as an assistant. Cary makes friends and clients in jail. Kalinda has lots of sex to get that recording to fudge his innocence.

Alicia Florrick vs. The Internet

And just like that, "The Good Wife" took on Reddit -- sorry, Scabbit -- and the mess that happened with the Boston Marathon bombing. This week's episode, "Whack-a-Mole," introduced many stories that seem to be leading to something way bigger.

Robyn Saves The Day

"The Next Month" wasn't my favorite episode, but there were quite a few redeeming aspects, one of them being the storyline for Robyn (Jess Weixler).

Alicia Florrick: Warrior Princess

It's "The Next Week" on "The Good Wife" and boy is there a lot of stuff going on. Betrayal, depositions, murder charges and Internet hacking all made up the fast-paced episode.
