You have to admire someone that loses everything after being humiliated and then picks herself back up and starts right back at the bottom. That’s what I love about Alicia (Julianna Marguilles) – the whole show is about she picks herself back up and that is such an admirable quality. Alicia wore a black, collarless jacket to bond court. I found this Calvin Klein Zip-Pocket Collarless Blazer ($77.99) to recreate her look:
The judge in bond court doesn’t want anything to do with Alicia because he’s afraid she’ll slow him down. Just as she’s trying to argue her point and convince him, Louis Canning (Michael J. Fox) shows up and takes her to lunch. He tries to hire her again and she tells him that he’s the devil.
I also have to note how cute Grace (Mackenzie Vega) is stepping in as Alicia’s secretary. Like mother, like daughter. Alicia finally gets a case to work on with a potential $8 million inheritance.
I could NOT believe that Peter (Chris Noth) betrayed Eli (Alan Cumming) the way he did. After everything Eli did for him. That was just shitty. How quickly he forget where he started now that he is relevant again. I did not see that one coming.
Back at Lockhart, Agos, Lee, Cary (Matt Czuchry) is definitely starting to notice that he is surrounded by old people and he longs to go hang out with the associates. Diane (Christine Baranski) and David Lee (Zach Grenier) have taken on the other side of Alicia’s case and are strategizing on how to win. Diane wore a floral Etro blazer. This Michael Kors Printed Soft Blazer ($78) is a similar look for less:
Alicia is still trying to be a bar attorney, but the judge doesn’t want anything to do with her because he thinks she’ll slow him down. She gets a little friendly encouragement from Lucca Quinn (Cush Jumbo), a new bond court attorney, and the judge gives her a few cases to try out. Alicia wore a Gucci Wool Blazer (sold out). I liked this Red Ultimate Double Weave 24 Inch Jacket ($128) to recreate the look:
Back at the inheritance case, David Lee, Diane and Alicia bring in a bevy of glue and adhesive experts to comically try and resolve which side was to be awarded the $8 million painting. Alicia wore a Printed Tweed Jacket by Narciso Rodriguez ($1,995). This Ivanka Trump Faux Leather Trim Marled Sweater Jacket ($71.40) is similar:
Diane wore a sold out Proenza Schouler Striped Crepe Peplum Jacket (also worn by Kerry Washington on Scandal). I found this similar Kasper Colorblocked Patterned Blazer ($54.99) to recreate the look:
Things got a little crazy after this. Eli decided that he wanted to be Alicia’s chief of staff to really push Ruth Eastman (Margo Martindale) out and get his job back. I really love Eli and Alicia’s relationship. They get each other.
Alicia gets stuck in bond court doing Lucca a favor and can’t make it to her regular hearing. She asks Lucca to step in and get a continuance, but the judge refuses and forces her to participate. Lucca ends up saving the day and the case and Alicia is back in business! Unfortunately, she finds out that Louis Canning fed her this case because he wants to hire her. He tells her that he will stop sending cases her way if she wants, but she doesn’t refuse. My prediction – she will end up working for him this season.
This episode was crazy and I loved every second of it! I can’t wait until the next episode!
