Tonight, “The Good Wife” aired a new episode entitled “Winning Ugly” that was almost entirely about complications. Just when you started to think that things were rather clear and cut-and-dry, another twist or two entered the picture and shook things up in a huge way.
First and foremost, we bring to you the story of how Alicia Florrick tried to clear her name in the voter fraud – State’s Attorney case. She shrewdly recorded a conversation where it was admitted that there was cheating going on behind the scenes in order to ensure that Frank Prady would be elected. Apparently, this was not even good cheating! What she failed to realize in the process, though, was that she was ultimately in a web that eventually was set to catch her husband. Did you really think that the voting in the Governor’s race years ago would ever be forgotten completely?
Well, this was not the end of it all. Alicia trusted the wrong people, and eventually learned just how set up she was. Now, she is facing the possibility of being forced out by people who want something greater, and that is the ability to stop a recount at all costs.
Meanwhile, Diane was caught in a terrible position of her own after learning that she had submitted false evidence unintentionally in the case to protect Cary Agos. As a result, she faced a choice: Either she could testify against Bishop, or run the risk of facing charges. It’s the impossible sort of situation you would not want to be in, since she cried so hard to get out of this place only to fall right back into it.
This was a hell of a cliffhanger for Alicia, and the show as a whole as we move into the final three episodes. Can she figure out a way to undo this? Grade: B+.
