Recap

With a friend of Will's on trial for taking payments from Muslim extremists, Alicia was part of the team this week that listened in on federal wiretaps in order to get him off. This resulted in a number of developments:

First, they got their client off because they actually heard the voice of a White House employee on the tapes and the defense didn't want to drag Obama's name through any case involving ties to terrorism. The firm also discovered that its client did accept money from a druglord, but, hey, that wasn't the issue on the table.

Second, the firm heard Eli on the tapes, implying there was something shady going on with Peter's campaign. Diane told Eli he was being tapped and also told him of her plans to start a new firm with David Lee. She wants his business.

Third, Alicia actually heard Will talking to his friend about the infamous voicemails. She learned of the one Eli erased and how Will truly felt. But when she went to confront him about that at the conclusion of the episode, Tammy was in his office. Awkward!

Elsewhere: 

- Kalinda discovered that Blake tried to set her up, using her bat and placing her fingerprints at the scene of a beating he put on a witness from a couple cases ago. Cary told Kalinda about the fingerprint and how he steered the police away from her as a suspect.

- Zack played a big role on the episode: he's dating a girl from Samoa, which his grandmother doesn't approve of. And he make a viral rainbow that mocked Glenn Childs Jr. When the Childs' campaign found out about this, it released it own video, which depicted Grace talking about her father and his hooker.
