"Nine Hours" was a perfect name for the latest episode of The Good Wife. Not only did it relate to the case of the death row inmate and the nine hours to secure a stay of execution, it also refers to the nine extraordinary hours of television we have been blessed with so far during season two.
Unlike most episodes revolving around a specific case, this one didn't take place in the offices of Lockhart, Gardner and Bond. The predominant scenes were filmed in Alicia's bedroom and the Indiana Correctional Facility that housed Carter Wright as he awaited his fate on death row, allowing for some character interactions we wouldn't have seen otherwise. Other interesting points were Diane's increased involvement in the case and the absence of Derrick Bond. I've been awaiting Diane doing something other than sitting behind her desk. I was kind of surprised that she was a calm as she was. She's portrayed as an ultra left-wing liberal, but she was all business as she supported Carter and worked toward an appeal, all the while knowing that the chance a stay would be granted was a long shot. Frankly, it amazed me. Since Bond joined the firm and took on the role of Alicia's mentor, he has rarely made an appearance of any significance. All hands were on deck, but not his. It seemed odd.
