A bond court case involving vandalism at a museum doesn’t sound all that promising a basis for an episode, but “Innocents” is precisely the kind of story The Good Wife has turned into art over the years and this was something of a return to form: a genuinely interesting, quirky, thoughtful yet quick look at the boundaries between art, indecency, freedom and family, with a fun judge and Nancy Crozier making her usual “I’m from Michigan, me” brand of mischief on the other side.
In B and C-plot news, Cary’s war with Howard was very funny, Cary and Alicia remembering they’re friends and can speak to each other was great – perhaps they might even be in the same room together at some point soon? Pretty please? – and “Have you seen It Follows?” made me laugh. But everybody asking each other if they knew any good investigators while forgetting that yes, they did, her name was Robyn and she seems to have disappeared, annoyed me. (Seriously, where IS Robyn? Did she run away with Taye Diggs?) As did new guy Jason Crouse. I know we’re supposed to think he’s charming and handsome and generally awesome-sauce, but he seems more than keen enough on himself (nobody smiles like that all the time, dude, tone it down) to need any additional validation from me.
