The Good Wife “Trust Issues” Recap

The second episode jumps right in with Alicia (Julianna Marguilles) and Cary (Matt Czuchry) still arguing over Diane (Christine Baranski) joining their firm. Alicia has the upper hand since Cary is still in jail and things look murky as the bail money is in question.

Next, we are introduced to Dean (Taye Diggs) as a partner from New York who is setting up shop in Chicago. Diane also announces her “retirement” at the Lockhart Gardner staff meeting and convinces Dean to join her.

We also get a little nod to one of the flashbacks last year as Alicia faces Lorraine, a woman she interviewed with when she started looking for a job and wouldn’t hire her.

Kalinda (Archie Panjabi) has a hard time working with Bishop’s crew as she knows who was wearing the wire and if Bishop finds out, he will be killed. Kalinda wears the Anasta Jacket from The Row ($2,790). This Express Leather Double Peplum Moto Jacket ($128) is similar:

Peter (Chris Noth) refuses to sign a second mortgage with Alicia on her condo which she was going to use for Cary’s bail. He tells her that it isn’t a smart move. He does have a good point, but their relationship is further strained.

That doesn’t seem to matter as people are beating down the door to offer Alicia money for Cary’s bail because they think she is running for office. Robin (Jess Weixler) tries to convince her to take the money, but she refuses. Robin wears the most adorable Alice + Olivia Cloud Print Cardigan (sold out). I couldn’t find a similar cardigan, but I did find two other cloud items. The first is a  Vince Camuto Sleeveless Cloud-Print Shell ($99) and the second is a Forever 21 Cloud Print Cutout Cami ($12.80):


The back and forth between Alicia and Eli (Alan Cumming) is hilarious. He just can’t help himself when he sees the possibility of a winning campaign. I loved her Escada Bore Jacquard Scuba Jacket (Sold out). I found this similar Ivanka Trump Zip Front Jacket ($139) that has the same exposed zipper and definitely looks like it could be in her wardrobe:

Alicia held a vote and the partners agreed to allow Diane and her team to join the firm. Watching Diane and Dean walk out of LGC gave me goosebumps. Who would have predicted this last year when we saw Alicia leave. So crazy! Diane’s Escada Leopard Jacquard Coat ($2795) was also stunning! This Piperlime Leopard Coat ($159) is similar:


I think watching Cary and Alicia reunite was the best part of this episode. It was so touching, especially because they’ve never had that type of relationship.

I can’t wait to see what happens next and if Alicia, Diane and Kalinda will be able to keep him out of jail.
