The Good Wife Review: Red Team/Blue Team

After some very miss episodes and storylines in The Good Wife season 4, "Red Team, Blue Team" brought real stakes, conflict and fire back to the show.
Rather than settling a case, the firm's client, Thief, decided they wanted a mock trial first. Often when a show does a mock trial, the internal antics get in the way and it ends up either ridiculous or boring. On "Red Team/Blue Team," this "fake" trial had higher intensity than a real trial has ever had on the show.
Will and Diane faced off against Alicia and Cary. It was about time for Cary to get some quality screen time this season. Alicia and Cary work incredibly well together, even better than the named partners. And, they had an added incentive to beat their bosses.


I don't think Alicia owed it to Cary to turn down the partnership, but she owed it to herself - and in a strange way, she owed it to us. The whole show has been about Alicia's growth away from the good girl/good wife role and into herself. Last night she took an immense step backward, and I don't know if I have the time or the patience to take that step back with her. I don't know the Alicia who squashed her brief burst of independence and threw her fellow fourth year associates under the bus, but I know I don't like her. I am so disappointed; I honestly don't think I'll be watching any more. It's a great show and I've never missed an episode, but I feel as if I've caught a once-esteemed friend stealing or cheating
