swatkat: (the good wife: kalinda wins)

This isn't a deep thoughts post, although at some point I would like to talk about the question of 'goodness' with respect to Alicia, her self-image and how others see her (I have a half-written post on my desktop) - this is a squeaky penguin noises and flappy haaaaands post. First, a long overdue response to the previous episode:

My show, my show, my wonderful show—you were on fire in this episode. The Will vs. WSC plot comes to a conclusion (for now), and how. That was one very tense episode indeed, to the point where the comic relief subplot with Eli annoyed me (except in the scene with David Lee; they really need to figure out what to do with Eli, because the subplots are getting more uninteresting with every episode. I do not care about his sex life). The acting was top-notch, especially Christine Baranski when she was testifying and Julianna Margulies in, well, every damn scene but especially the Alicia-Peter confrontation and the walking out of court scene. Kalinda took the backseat in the episode, but that was to be expected—she'd set things in motion in the previous episode, now she had to just sit back and watch. And of course the file was bait, of course she didn't sell Will out just like that—the point of the previous episode, after all, was that Kalinda Sharma >>> You. ♥

This week's episode, serving as a set-up for the rest of the season, was justifiably less on fire, but still very tense. Having Will suspended for six months is a very, very ballsy thing to do, and I'm curious as to how this will play out for the rest of the season. The following elements please me:

+ That Diane is now IN CHARGE, and SHE IS THE BEST and Christine Baranski better win ALL THE AWARDS for this season OKAY?

+ That Will sneakily handed over Kalinda's cases to Alicia. It is perfectly logical of course - who else can he trust but Alicia with them? But it's also Will (and Diane) not having with this nonsense of them not getting along, and Will's secret agenda of paying back his debt to Kalinda because they are bros and bros take care of each other.

+ That Alicia will now have to deal directly with Diane all the time.

I cringed as soon as the Syria plot was introduced, although I suppose it could've been far worse. I find myself vastly uninterested in the Eli subplot as well. I would, however, like to know why Cary is now calling all the shots in the SA's office and why Dana is the one to face the fallouts of the WSC investigation.

WHY IS THE NEXT EPISODE AFTER TWO WEEKS? I NEED TO KNOW WHAT HAPPENS NEXT.

I am utterly charmed by this silly highschool AU [personal profile] monanotlisa and I were talking about last night, based on an observation of hers that "TGW would rock so many AUs...if not the high-school one; it relies so much on the characters being complex yet at all times mature adults..."

ETA: [personal profile] deepad writes a hilarious write-up on Comic Con, the Delhi edition. I solemnly swear that I did not poke Captain America's manboobs.
