Recap

- Colin Sweeney is back and Alicia is defending him once again. This time it appears that he is innocent of the charges, but the prosecutors are unwilling to make a deal.

- Diane asks Cary to interview and hire an associate. During one of the interviews, he finds out information about a Supreme Court ruling that explains the State Attorney's reluctance to make a deal in Sweeney's case. If he is found guilty, it would be his third strike and he would be given a life sentence. 

- With this new information, the best way to protect Sweeney is to go to trial immediately and hope a decision is reached prior to the ruling being released. They are on the last day of the client's right to a speedy trial. Alicia asks the judge to start the trial immediately. 

- The ASA on the case, Laura, is not prepared either, but is forced to abide by the speedy trial requirement.

- After awkward testimony, Sweeney is found not guilty on the major charge and guilty on a lesser charge of disorderly conduct. He's ordered to pay a fine and 30 days in jail.

- Laura and Will had been dating for a week. Laura asks Alicia if there is something going on between her and Will. Alicia says that there was a long time ago. After the trial, Alicia calls Will after thinking about them. He's with Laura when she calls and Alicia quickly hangs up. Laura realizes there is something going on and makes an excuse to end things with Will.

- Diane and Kurt McVeigh meet up again because of the Sweeney case. She asks him to marry her. He tells her it's not a good time.

- Diane asks Kalinda to do a background check on her in order to prepare for the Supreme Court nomination. Kalinda finds out some troubling history about Diane's father and also McVeigh. Despite this, Diane decides she still wants to be with McVeigh and doesn't accept his delays.

I am only commenting to make you know what a fabulous experience my girl went through browsing your site. She mastered a good number of issues, including how it is like to have a very effective coaching character to make many more effortlessly learn about specific impossible topics. You truly surpassed readers' expected results. I appreciate you for giving those good, safe, explanatory and in addition easy guidance on the topic to Julie.louis vuitton canada store louis vuitton canada http://www.lvbag.ca/

Oh puh-lease! Enough of poor, broken-hearted Alicia still pining & wanting Wil, who isn't worth a plug nickel! Only in Hollywood or with teenagers is this kind of lovesickness interesting. She is no longer a good wife, or even a good mother, or even a good person - which IS realistic of many people. Anyway, the whole story line is getting pretty boring & ridiculous.

Who was the actress that played Colin Sweeney's girlfriend???

I like it just the way it is. The office tension with Alicia & Will and the the family/political story with Alicia and Peter. This is the more realistic path and makes for good viewing.

I don´t want Alicia with Will, It doesn´t send a moral message about the character beside I love Peter and Alicia together all couples have up and down I think it´s time to put them up!!!!

I've never watched GW, but walked onto filming location Friday night (Mar 29) at 10 pm in streets of Long Island City. They were shooting season finale to air in about a month. Hooked up with assistant director and stayed on set until 1:30 am (4 scenes). Extremely interesting.

PS....If they want to stop watching the TGW so be it, good you won't be missed.

I guess everyones comments are coming from young adults that have nothing better on their minds but sex, there is more but you'll can't see it and would not try it if it were you. He needs to be rubbed out and replaced with a new partner, lets have the writers working on it !!
