Ok, so now Kresteva’s definitely on the wrong side of annoying. But since the quid pro for that is the return of everybody’s favourite TGW eccentric REDACTED and since she’s on joyous, hilarious form and I’m delighted to see her kicking his ass, I don’t mind too much. Especially given how tremendous the case of the week is, covering as it does the “epidemic of Chicago shows,” the very real pressure being brought to bear on media outlets and First Amendment freedoms in general by the current incumbent of the White House and his cronies, and this.
Not that the fun ends there, either. Throw in the return of Gary Cole’s Kurt McVeigh (whom neither Diane nor I can resist); Diane herself getting her mojo back (if it was ever gone); Lucca getting a little sugar of her own; and all the usual awesomeness too, and we have another wildly entertaining, wonderful episode of The Good Fight. If I had to come up with a quibble, I’d say that what I assume is the running gag where any question about how or what Alicia’s doing is met with some sort of deflection or change of subject may pall in due course, but it’s early days yet and Adrian’s face when Ada interrupts this week is priceless so we’ll worry about running gags another time. TGW may have fallen off its game by the end but, right now, TGF is at the top of it.
