The Good Wife "Targets" Review - AVClub

AVClub: Alicia Florrick works at Lockhart, Agos & Lee now. Remember? Last week, Alicia and Lucca took Cary’s offer to join the firm, but Alicia’s chair reminded her over and over that she didn’t belong. Alicia Florrick works at Lockhart, Agos & Lee now, which seemed like a solution to the ongoing problems with, well, Diane Lockhart, Cary Agos and, to a lesser extent, David Lee. With Alicia, Lucca, Jason, Diane, and Cary all in the same building (even if they’re on different floors), all of the main players of The Good Wife finally occupy the same physical space together, which might suggest they start occupying the same narrative space together. But no, the final stretch of The Good Wife folds Alicia back into her home firm but still has her doing her own thing. On one hand, it makes sense. Alicia is at a place in her life where she does her own thing, where she doesn’t answer to anyone. She came to Lockhart, Agos & Lee for the money, as she and Lucca remind us at episode’s end. She didn’t return to get the band back together again. But on the other hand, Alicia’s continued detachment from everyone else has left other characters—Cary and Diane in particular—behind in middling stories lacking in stakes.

The story is too old to be commented.
