The Good Wife Preview: Michael J. Fox Returns in Episode 3.18

Colin Sweeney returned to this week's episode of The Good Wife.   Of course, wherever he goes, drama follows.  Just before a proxy vote for Colin to take back control of his company, a woman named Isobel (guest star Morena Baccarin) appeared on stage to accuse him of sexual misconduct and fathering her son. Colin denied everything, but she was pursuing a lawsuit against him, so Alicia and Caitlin defended him in court.  Along the way, Colin perjured himself about sexual relations with Isobel and the firm learned that he was the father of Isobel's son, although Isobel achieved that by using his sperm and a turkey baster.  In the end, Colin surprised the firm by revealing that he and Isobel had come to their own arrangement and were going to re-take the company.
