I want Lt. Hicks on screen every.single.week. I love him. Love, love, love. I know we already have way too many characters, but can we make him recurring, PLEASE?
I call huge bullshit on the Kalinda/Dana bar conversation. You're telling me that Kalinda, who at the end of S1 wouldn't even tell Alicia she was gay, is now sharing with Dana what it feels like to sleep with a woman? Puh-leeze. Show's still trying way too hard to make Dana the it girl. Just let her be sexy with Cary. (And: as I feared, thus far SHE'S shaping up to be the pivot point of the triangle, not either of the other two.)
I'm not thrilled about seeing Wendy Scott-Carr again, but at least she's dropping the creepy-as-hell fake nice act and rolling with the "I'm an ice cold killer who will cut you without blinking" vibe. It suits her much better. I did flove the conversation between Diane and WSC; Diane totally handled her. I also loved the way Diane laid down the law to Will. I don't agree with (all) her sentiments, but dang, she had ice water in her veins.
I wonder if Diane's trust in Will is going to be shaken later down the line by her finding out about the 45k.
FINALLY Alicia changed the locks. Fina-fucking-lly. I still do.not.buy that she didn't do it two minutes after she kicked Peter out. I loved Alicia's beatdown of Jackie, but you know Jackie's going to escalate the situation somehow. I actually laughed when Alicia said "Let's buy you a car!"
Nice to hear Alicia say she and Peter are on good terms these days, and to see her distinguishing between Jackie and Peter. It's also good to hear Alicia finally tell the kids what's what.
I loled hard at Eli's "corn is a grain!" moment, but the integration of Eli and the firm is still tenuous. I was disappointed by how easily he was handled by Stacie Hall (and can we say Nancy Crozier redux?). But his end conversation with Diane was genius. GENIUS. DIANE was genius. It's the best I've liked Eli all season. AC and CB have great chemistry.
Despite its flaws, this was one of the better episodes of the season, and I think it's because there was so.much.Diane. And she was SO.GOOD.
Have to admit it's nice to see LG lose, even if it was a tough one to lose. Apparently they can only lose in military court!
I lost a lot of respect for the female judge after their last conversation. Also, I call bullshit, because you can't tell me a female judge in the military would DENY THAT THERE ARE PROBLEMS WITH SEXISM IN THE MILITARY. And I didn't like her lecturing tone.
ETA: I can already tell that the next episode is going to be BRUTAL.
