Partners, associates, and the private investigator at Lockhart Gardner can toss the Ambien. They will be resting easier now. Diane just won a $6 million case about wrongful death during a fraternity hazing. Optimism has returned to this firm in bankruptcy. Now Diane is toying with the idea of buying Louis Canning (owned by character played by Michael Fox) and opening an office in Manhattan.
Meanwhile, the writers heard our yawns about their convoluted tedious plotline involved with the Kalinda/Nick marriage. That's gone. Returned to our delight is Jackie, the mother-in-law we all hate. But she may not be long for the series. Eli put the muzzle on her during Peter's campaign for governor when she said girls always chased after her son. Also, a side effect of her stroke she had hallucinations.
The wrench is Peter's run could be any evidence that he had an affair with a campaign worker. The press is investigating that. Also it could deep-six any chance of a reconciliation with Alicia.
