I’m not sure I would respond if I arrived at home and found Howard Lyman (Jerry Adler) waiting for me, but Alicia handles it in stride. She wore the Armani Collezioni Two-Button Collarless Blazer ($997.50). This Kensie Three-Quarter-Sleeve Collarless Blazer ($89) is similar:
Bond court is heating up for Alicia with an exciting drug case, while Jackie (Mary Beth Peil) is being propositioned by Howard (which is hilarious!). Eli (Alan Cummings) is still having a battle of wits with Ruth (Margo Martindale) and she wants Alicia and her mother to appear on Mama’s Homespun Cooking, a cooking show. Little does she know that is probably better in theory than execution.
Diane (Christine Baranski) is trying to find someone new to mentor and I was appalled by the girl’s response to her generous offer. Even if you plan to start a family you don’t throw that kind of offer back in someone’s face. I was embarrassed for her. Diane wore a teal perforated leather blazer. I found a few different styles to recreate the look. The first a Mark Zunino Faux Leather Jacket ($35.90) and the second a Laundry by Shelli Segal Long Ponte Open-Front Jacket ($59.25):
Alicia and Veronica’s (Stockard Channing) segment was better than Eli could have hoped for. They totally crashed and burned and it was glorious. Alicia wore a Jason Wu Belted Draped Dress (sold out). This Tahari by ASL Viviana – W Dress ($64.99) is similar:
Alicia discovers that her case is really an elaborate sting to catch the judge taking a bribe. Alicia wore a burgundy blazer and I found this similar Collection Flap Pocket Jacket ($101.97) to recreate the look:
Shocker! At the end of the episode Eli warned the judge and he didn’t take the bribe, but instead wants some help with Frank Landau…what is he up to?
Diane is pissed that Alicia is helping Howard, which really wasn’t her fault, they just won’t realize that Alicia is not the enemy. The stuff with Howard and Jackie is pretty hilarious though. I can’t wait to see where that goes.
