David Lee’s niece (?) Anna Camp pops back in this week to do battle with Alicia and Diane in a reasonably interesting case about private drones which has a lot of potential and could have tickled me a lot more if Anna’s character actually asked questions like a real lawyer instead of ranting about Reese Dipple all the time. That, and the Eli/ Marissa storyline are the best ones of the week, which doesn’t mean they’re brilliant, but they’re decent enough.
On the firm warfare front, however, both Cary and I are truly over it, and given the way Matt Czuchry’s been, shall we say, “under-used” over the past season, there’s something uncomfortably meta about Cary walking out for being pushed aside, even if I did like his little dig about the subpoena on the way out. As far as Alicia and Jason are concerned, meanwhile, every scene they shared made me want to switch off the television – especially that conference room awfulness – and if you’d told me two years ago that I wouldn’t care in the slightest whether Peter and Alicia get a divorce this time or not, I wouldn’t have believed you, but there we are.
