The Good Wife “Shiny Objects” Recap

Elsbeth Tascioni (Carrie Preston) is back! This time she is across the table from Alicia (Julianna Marguiles). It is funny to get a look into her mind in this episode as we usually get to see her being eccentric. She is good at her job despite her eccentricities.

Diane (Christine Baranski) inadvertently downloads a virus onto her computer and it locks the entire firm out of their computers. It’s happened to the best of us, right? Alicia wears an Akris suit with a leather jacket and a sold out Armani Collezioni Cowl Neck Satin Blouse. I tried to recreate this look with a Calvin Klein Seamed Leather Jacket ($499) and Drape Neck Shell from The Limited ($59.95):

The firm decides to pay the TrojanLock ransom but it doesn’t work, which leaves Diane stuck on the helpline. I bet she didn’t have this in mind when she left Lockhart Gardner. Diane wore an Akris skirt, a cream blouse designed by Daniel Lawson (the show stylist), a Gucci Waist Belt ($453.80) and Dior Asymmetrical Pumps in black suede calfskin. To recreate this look I used this Pinstripe Pencil Skirt ($99.99), Crepe Tie-Neck Blouse ($79), Faux Leather Skinny Belt ($3.90) and these DV by Dolce Vita Ila pumps ($39.99):

It is so funny to watch Elsbeth thrown off her game by Alicia. First with the dangly earrings, then the weird magazines. Alicia definitely struck a nerve.

Kalinda (Archie Panjabi) has to enlist the help of her FBI sometimes girlfriend to track down the Ransomware scammer. In the meantime, Diane has to grovel at the feet of David Lee to try to get the password they emailed to her old email address. Diane adds the matching Akris jacket to complete her ensemble. I liked this Topshop Double Breasted Heritage Cape ($166) to recreate a similar look:

Elsbeth decides that she can avoid Alicia’s distractions long enough to win the case so they head back to court. Alicia wears an Armani Collezioni Houndstooth Plaid Jacket ($1,420). This Calvin Klein Glen Plaid Jacket ($83.40) is similar:

I have to make a mention of the scene with Alicia and Finn (Matthew Goode) at the bar. Alicia is such a bad ass, I love that she randomly does shots of tequila on a school night.

Back in court with Elsbeth, Alicia’s distraction tactics aren’t working as well as the first time. Alicia wore a Rena Lange striped blazer –  a repeat from last season. You can try this Calvin Klein Hounds-Tooth Printed Jacket ($103.99) for a similar look:

I love how thrown Elsbeth is when Josh Perotti (Kyle MacLachlan) joins the party. Their relationship is too funny! In other news, Kalinda beat the internet scammer at his own game – she is darn good at her job.

Alicia and Peter’s (Chris Noth) exchange about the endorsement was the most honest I’ve seen her. She finally threw the whoring around in his face. I don’t know if these two kids will ever make it work. She was right about one thing, Peter needs her more than she needs him.

I loved seeing Diane so out of her element when she sees the cockroach – her reaction was priceless! She was wearing a Burberry Prorsum Dégradé Knit Dress (sold out). This Ralph Lauren Abstract-Print Faux-Wrap Dress ($149) is a great match:


In the end, Peter comes through for Alicia and endorses her. He knows where his bread is buttered…It definitely shows how far she has come and things have sort of come full circle. Alicia wore a red Andrew Gn jacket in a nice political red color. I loved this Tahari Peplum Blazer ($90.29) because it comes in at the waist mirroring Alicia’s look:
