The Good Wife “The Line” Recap

The Season 6 premiere picks up right where we left off, with Eli (Alan Cumming) asking Alicia (Julianna Marguilles) to run for State’s Attorney. She is having no part of it and is more focused on her potential merger with Diane (Christine Baranski). Cary (Matt Czuchry) doesn’t want to participate in merger talks at all but Alicia convinces him to hear Diane out.

Unfortunately, before he can do anything, Cary gets arrested and we have no idea why!!

Alicia and Diane meet and wait for Cary, but he obviously doesn’t show up. Diane promises to bring her clients, but wants to bring Kalinda (Archie Panjabi) with her and she wants an equal vote.

At the meeting Diane wore the Etro Ponte Paisley-Bodice Dress (849.79 EU). I liked this Karen Kane Goldtone Sequin Front Dress ($138) as a similar look:


As the episode continues, we find out that Cary was arrested for a drug charge, but we don’t know how or why just yet. Cary is so creative – he gets one of the Lockhart Gardner clients he bumps into in general population to tell Kalinda that he is in there. She tells Alicia and gets the ball rolling on his case.

Once Alicia gets there we find out that Cary is accused of a heroin offense – the felony sale of 900 grams! Bail is set in the millions turning this into a much bigger problem than Alicia and Cary could have anticipated. They figure out that this is tied to one of their clients, Mr. Bishop (Mike Colter). They say that Cary advised Bishop on how to sell drugs.

Diane breaks the news to David Lee (Zach Grenier) and Louis Canning (Michael J. Fox) that she will retire at the end of the month…aka move to Cary and Alicia’s firm.

Alicia gets replaced as Cary’s attorney because she also represents Lemond Bishop. She asks Diane to help represent Cary and sets Canning and Lee off on suspicion that Diane is going to their firm. Alicia wears the Jeisina Textured Stretch Cotton Striped Blazer by BOSS ($595). I found this similar Emporio Armani Blazer ($275):

She is always cool, calm and collected. She wears a St. John Collection Milano Knit Bateau Neck Long Sleeve Draped Dress (745.65 EU). This American Living Ruffled Faux-Wrap Dress ($69) is a great look for less:

Things get much more complicated, when Bishop brings 1.5 million to Alicia’s office for Cary’s bail. Then Kalinda finds out that there is a recording of Cary telling Bishops men how to avoid jail for their next drug shipment…he might be screwed. Diane has taken over as his lawyer now and I loved this floral blazer she wore. I found this Susan Graver 3/4 Sleeve Printed Floral Textured Jacket ($42.98) for a similar look:

So in the end, our former friend Finn Polmar (Matthew Goode) questioned the bail funds and Cary has to stay in lockup for at least another week. I can’t believe how awful that turned out for him!

Some of the funny moments were with Eli and his daughter, hilarious and cut some of the serious moments, so I thought that was great writing.

I can’t wait to see what happens next week! The first episode was crazy so far!!
