Mind games and dirty tac­tics

THE GOOD WIFE

Wed­nes­day, 9.30pm,

Ten

WITH the firm in the grip of bank­ruptcy, Will and Diane are re­ly­ing on the set­tle­ment of a big case to give them the much-needed fi­nan­cial boost to keep the prac­tice afloat. And as usual, it’s up to Ali­cia to win it for them and save the day.

While you can see the end re­sult from the get-go, what makes the episode so en­thralling is how it all plays out. The case sees the firm su­ing a bank af­ter sev­eral houses they fore­closed on were left un­cared for, re­sult­ing in a mos­quito out­break in the pools, which led to a young girl be­com­ing se­ri­ously ill.

Rep­re­sent­ing the bank boss in the le­gal fight is none other than Louis Can­ning (Michael J. Fox), which means Ali­cia (Ju­lianna Mar­gulies, pic­tured) must again go up against her old ri­val.

And what a war they wage. Dirty tac­tics and psy­cho­log­i­cal games quickly en­sue, leav­ing view­ers cap­ti­vated as they wait to see who will strike the next blow. It’s clever, in­trigu­ing and en­gag­ing with­out be­ing so smart you can’t fol­low what’s go­ing on.
