Astute about the law-firm game, Diane knows how the flaws in the appearance of Florrick Agos can handicap the pursuit of new business. Therefore, she connects the dots when a cockroach turns up and she realizes she controls the lease at where her former law firm is based. A move would not only give Florrick Argos the edge. It could also take that edge away from the current squatters David Lee and Louis Canning.
Although that development is important for business, it was not the central emotional point of last night's episode of "The Good Wife." Instead what dominated was the vestige of tension beween Alicia and Peter. Alicia needs Peter's endorsement tor run for state attorney. He doesn't want to give it on the same platform her possible new lover Finn Polmar is also standing.
At that point she rips into him with, "You go off banging prostitutes two at a time and I stood beside you like a grinning fool." No slouch in the battle of the sexes, Peter comes back with, "Oh let it go. For God's sakes let it go."
For techies there was the treat of the malware attack. The law firm's files were held for ransom of $50,000. It's Kalinda to the rescue, imploring the help of her female FBI lover Lana who tells her off. As we all know, Kalinda is a user. But her character won't be returning next year. Therefore, the writers can inject into her role some really out-of-the-box activities.
In new quarters the firm might begin to thrive. Like much of professional services, law is embedded in image issues. The current space lacks a door for the conference room.
