The Good Wife 2.10 "Breaking Up" Review

Aha! Now I know why Cary seems like more than a regular than the regulars - he is the only ADA assigned to Lockhart Gardner cases. Did the writers give us that clarification because so many of us had the same question? Even if they didn't, I thank them. Not because I have any issue with Cary being around; quite the opposite. If he's the only ADA squaring off with Lockhart Gardner, then we can be assured Matt Czuchry is staying put. That he underhandedly brought in Marshall Mann (Frederick Weller) from In Plain Sight was icing on the cake.

Owen adds a nice dose of snark and breathes life into Alicia that we don't see with her other relationships. I also enjoy his scenes with rest of the family; Jackie in particular. Her candor in chatting with him about being gay was delightful, and achieved what  The Good Wife does best - brought up a tough topic without choosing sides.
