The case of the week, in which Caitlin is pitted against Martha (who works for Canning now, just like Alicia will someday, according to him), involves Jennifer Carpenter playing a crummy English Lit professor who lodges a fake sexual harassment complaint after she’s fired for being ten different kinds of *******. It’s interesting, if you’re the kind of person who is thrilled by concretist religious debate, but probably educational for those people who think the Bible justifies their bigotry. (Spoiler! It doesn’t.)
Speaking of sodomites, Kalinda is interrupted before closing the deal with Dana by the sudden abduction of Grace Florrick, whom she secretly tracks and rescues and returns home without the terrified Alicia ever finding out who her guardian angel really is. (I expect that will last a long time, Alicia not finding that out and reconciling with her best friend. We’re coming up on half-a-season of this, you guys.)
The storied abduction takes place like 40 minutes into the episode, but makes up for that with sheer suspenseful horror feelings as Alicia, Michael J. Fox’s Louis Canning, and the entire Cook County PD get in on the act. Where is she? Oh, of course she’s just off getting baptized in some South Side church, because that’s how her bull**** rolls, but the frightening farce does manage to reshuffle some important relationships.
