The Good Wife Recap: The Big Chill

Was this the first episode all season that actually showed some solid continuity from the one preceding it? Seems like it! As I wrote last week (er — two weeks ago), it was looking as though the major threads/cliffhangers that would string us along through our final three episodes would be Willicia 3.0 and Diane Lockart: Supreme Court Justice (?) and, lo and behold, we were given movement on both story lines this week! While this sort of linear plot development might not be notable were this another show or another season, on this one at this juncture, we’re doling out credit on a sliding scale. Add in some Cary defection threats, good Robyn scenes, and a case-of-the-week that managed to roll in buzzy topics like Bitcoin, Steubenville, “legitimate rape,” and Anonymous hacktivists, and we had the makings of a pretty solid hour.
