The Good Wife “Innocents” Recap

This week starts in bond court again, but Alicia (Julianna Marguiles) gets a substantial case with a young man trying to protect his likeness. She even needs an investigator and starts interviewing a few, including Jason Crouse (Jeffrey Dean Morgan). She wore a cross dyed blazer, which was hard to find, but this Cloetta Flecked Cotton Blazer ($129.99) is similar:


Alicia’s case takes a turn when she decides to go up against a museum to block an exhibit displaying naked pictures of her client. The museum is represented by Nancy Crozier (Mamie Gummer) who is always delightfully annoying. Alicia wore an elegant black and white blazer. This Calvin Klein Colorblocked Draped Blazer doesn’t necessarily match this look, but it is similar.

Nancy is the character you love to hate, Mamie Gummer is amazing in this role. She wore the Escada Dkama Dress ($1495). This Milly Daphne Colorblock Sheath Dress ($435) is similar:


Both Alicia and Diane (Christine Baranski) and Cary (Matt Czuchry) are looking for a new investigator now that Kalinda is gone. I don’t understand what happened to Robin, she was pretty good. Alicia started with one investigator who dropped the ball and messed things up for them in court. Alicia fired her and went to Jason, who is also interviewing with Cary. Diane wore a chic mustard sheath. This Tahari Tiered Sheath Dress ($124) is similar:


Jason Crouse is already getting his money’s worth, coming up with a new angle for Alicia to use on the second day in court. She wore a hook and eye closure, pinstripe blazer. I found this Stellita Fit Wool Stripe Jacket ($159.20) that is somewhat similar:

Nancy is having a hard time with this line of questioning, not to mention the judge needs to call a recess because of his loud stomach issues. She knows they’ve got her on this one. She wore an Escada Draped Plaid Sheath ($1425). This V-Neck Sheath Dress ($69.95) is a good look for less:

Cary is playing with fire with Howard Lyman (Jerry Adler). He tricks him into going to Diane’s lunch and making a fool out of himself and she isn’t happy. Diane wore a cool graphic long coat with her black sheath. This Kasper Print Shantung Topper ($69.50) doesn’t have the same color palette but is similar to a statement coat that we would probably see Diane in.

At the end of the day, you can’t break the mother/son bond and Alicia is out of case. Nevertheless, things are looking up as Jason turns down Diane’s offer and decides to be Alicia’s investigator. Eli (Alan Cumming) also wins some ground with Peter (Chris Noth).

This was a fun episode and I love Grace (MacKenzie Vega) as Alicia’s assistant. She is on top of it!

  1. I’ve never watched the Good Wives. You found some great clothes that are similar to things characters wore!

  2. I’ve never watched The Good Wife but it seems like they are on-point with the fashion :). Christine Baranski is great on Big Bang Theory as a guest star (Leonard’s mom), do you watch that show? And I’m pretty sure the young-ish girl here is Meryl Streep’s daughter, yes? She was just in Ricki and the Flash.
