The Good Wife' Episode 17 Review

The promo ads for The Good Wife played up the 'Will Alicia and Will Do It?' tease from last night's episode. But that didn't prepare us for this hour crammed with controversial, timely, or just plain excitable moments. Themes and subplots included insurance fraud, fetal surgery, Chris Noth's Peter getting religion, guilt-by-Facebook, and by my count, a quadruple-twist in that Alicia-Will get-together.

Alicia's firm had taken on the case of a woman 23 weeks into her pregnancy who wanted experimental surgery on her (depending on which lawyer was arguing) fetus or unborn child. Her insurance company was denying her coverage. You add guest star Martha Plimpton being deliberately hammy as a vicious opposing lawyer nursing a sweet newborn herself, and you've got the elements that would take up an hour of any other series.
