Alicia and Will team up with a British lawyer this week because libel charges are brought against their client in a United Kingdom court. The deposition takes place via satellite, with Eddie Izzard guest-starring as a opposing attorney.
In the end, thanks to Alicia helping to boost the confidence of their British pal, Lockhart/Gardner gets the case thrown out.
- The State's Attorney office has the firm on its short list for firms that it would give $20 million/year to in order to defend it against civil cases. But first Peter makes an odd request: to have Lockhart/Gardner audited. He doesn't ask this of any of other finalists for the job. Diane presses Alicia for advice and she says the firm should decline.
Diane heeds these words, but then asks Will if Alicia and Peter are separated because it's clear something is going on. Will says Diane should ask Alicia and the pair agree that she will be fired if she becomes a liability.
- Kalinda and Eli work together for the first time, as a strategist wants to hire the latter to work on a Republican Presidential campaign.
