The Good Wife- Poisoned Pill recap/review

This episode guest starred Michael J. Fox, who we love. We know, we know: Everyone loves him. And they should, because he’s a load of fun, and his presence on this episode was no exception. He’s even loveable as a bad guy.

The firm took on a manufacturer of anti-depressant pills that made takers even more depressed, and a few killed themselves. It was a class action lawsuit, and the firm found the daughter of one of the victims to be their test case. Her name was Kaitlin, and she looked like what Evan Rachel Wood and Kristen Stewart’s lovechild would look like. The attorney for the pill manufacturer was Louis Canning, played by Michael J. Fox. This lawyer played dirty, using a disability to manipulate the jury. He also made the case super soapy by keeping the focus on a possible affair, rather than the science that implicated the pills. Our lawyers, Will, Alicia, and Diane, of course, upped their game, making the medicine look sexy as well. They played up the sexual side effects of the pills and showed a video of lab rats mauling and humping each other whilst on the drugs. Canning brought Kaitlin’s mother’s shrink to the courtroom to testify (which is iffy under the Federal Rules of Evidence, is it not?), and our three main lawyers had to discredit him. Canning decided to settle, and he ended up getting the best end of the deal. Canning taunted Alicia at the end. We can’t wait for him to come back. He is more than a worthy rival for the firm and Alicia.

Eli Gold was having trouble going up against the new candidate for State Attorney, Wendy. He glowered at a video of her beautifully singing the national anthem at a baseball game. He lamented her charity work, frugality, and humility. The only thing he has on her is that she is married to a white man, and Eli isn’t willing to stoop so low. Finally, Eli found out that Wendy had a $19,000 boob job, and he fed the info to one of Childs’ men. This resulted in an internet video with a cartoon and song about the breast augmentation.

Eli was also having trouble with Grace Florrick, who was caught on tape (by one of Eli’s cronies) promoting Wendy at Wendy’s rally. Eli passed this problem onto Alicia. Alicia forbid her daughter to do something to hurt her father again and Grace told Alicia that she was angry at Peter for making the video about Wendy’s boobs. Alicia softly suggested that it was made by Childs’ campaign. Eli’s dirty work paid off, and when it came out that Wendy had reconstructive surgery after breast cancer, Childs’ man took all the heat. Grace loved her father again. All was well, but shoot. Even we want to vote for Wendy now. We wish she were real.

Blake continued to snoop into Kalinda’s business, suggesting to her face that she was hiding a homosexual orientation. He was right on, and we got to see one of Kalinda’s exes whose heart Kalinda broke. This ex had to work with Blake, and she ended up kissing Kalinda at a bar before walking away. We don’t think Kalinda is only hiding lesbianism. She is a strong woman and an admirable character, and while it might be professional for a woman like that to hide her homosexuality, on TV that usually doesn’t happen. She must be hiding something else. Kalinda went to Cary and asked him to help her investigate Blake. Cary found out that Blake had ties to a meth gang, and he was arrested for associating with them, but he was never charged.

And that’s this episode recapped. We enjoyed it, but it wasn’t mind blowing. All episodes of The Good Wife are pretty good, so it has to be excellent to get an A out of us.

So, episode grade of B+

You can catch this episode, and the last one, on
