This episode begins with Alicia (Julianna Marguilles) getting ready for guests, specifically Eli (Alan Cumming) and her new campaign manager, Johnny Elfman (Steven Pasquale). They are sitting down to talk about oppo research, specifically all of the dirty little secrets in Alicia’s closet. She wore a Jason Wu Tie Bar Blouse ($995). This Ann Taylor Legacy Blouse ($119) is similar:
These scenes are hilarious, especially with Grace’s (Mackenzie Vega) choir group in the background. Diane (Christine Baranski) and Cary (Matt Czuchry) call her with more Lemond Bishop drama. Diane’s dress in this scene is incredible. It is a white dress with a lace applique. I found this Ali Ro White And Black Stretch Cotton Lace Detail Dress ($168.99) to recreate her look:
Next, Eli reveals that Zack got an abortion with his girlfriend last year, which was a horrible way to tell her. They also reveal pretty awful things about her mother and brother. There were a lot of bombs dropped in this episode! Alicia takes it all in stride, but first she has to fire Lemond Bishop (Mike Colter) as a client. He doesn’t take it very well. Alicia wears an Escada Checkerboard Jacquard Jacket ($1295). This Isaac Mizrahi Live! Jacquard Floral Knit Blazer ($62.48) is similar:
In order to run for State’s Attorney, a few things need to be fixed. First, Peter (Chris Noth) has to fire his sexy young intern, second, Alicia has to confront her family members and in the case of her mother blackmail a woman and thirdly, dispute her new alcohol problem. Never a dull moment…
At the end of the episode, we find out that Lemond Bishop started a PAC for Alicia and is using his drug money to fund it…I don’t see that being a problem, do you? Note the sarcasm…It should be an interesting few weeks waiting to see how this will end.
