‘The Good Wife’ season 6, episode 18 review: Was Alicia and Will’s history exposed?

Last week’s new episode of “The Good Wife” was one that featured an event that felt in many ways ripped out of the headlines: A massive email hack that put everyone at Florrick / Agos / Lockhart in jeopardy. As you would expect, Alicia was the one in most danger, as some of her private emails to Will Gardner were uncovered.

Was she able to cover up the fact that there was an affair there? With the help of Eli and her husband more or less. She was able to pass them off as a “flirtation,” and something unfortunate that happened within the bounds of her marriage. Peter was even able to make it appear that a reporter had a personal vendetta against her.

As if dealing with all of that was not bad enough, the accusations of voter fraud during the State’s Attorney race is enough to complete screw her. This is what she is facing now, and she has to brace herself for that.

Elsewhere in this episode…

1. Kalinda has to face the music when it comes to her role in messing with metadata, even if she tried to cover it up to the best of her ability with a parking-ticket excuse. Could this be one of the reasons she leaves?

2. Diane tackled a case involving two gay men suing a wedding planner, and what was so fascinating about it here was the even-handed and complicated approach both attorneys took to the case. Diane ended up winning, but will this really be a watershed case for businesses not discriminated against someone based on sexuality? It’s hard to say. Episode Grade: B+.
