The Good Wife

The Good Wife took on 3D printing, something I will never understand, and sealed it with a big kiss. But if you watch promos, that kiss was spoiled for you already. Thanks, CBS.

The case at hand: a man printed a gun with a 3D printer and it misfires, shooting a bystander at a gun range. Finn Polmar (Matthew Goode)—he's back!—took the case to Florrick/Agos and Lockhart and Diane (Christine Baranski) kind of hijacked it.

Let's face it: This episode was pretty much a filler episode. Last week was so big, with all the symbolism and Alicia's introspection, so this was bound to be slower than normal. But so many aspects of the episode were delightful, mainly the return of many fan-favorite characters Nancy Crozier (Mamie Gummer), Kurt McVeigh (Gary Cole) and Judge Abernanthy (Denis O'Hare). All of them were involved in the case. It was fun seeing Finn deal with Nancy—although I still like Alicia's interactions with her. Seeing Kurt and Diane interact on the stand and out of the court room—THAT CAR SCENE!—was a welcome distraction from the campaign. And Diane's bird brooch? Come on. Amazing.

So Alicia totally lied about her PAC and Lemond Bishop's involvement. This can't end well, right? Also in campaign land, Prady (David Hyde Pierce) went after Peter (Chris Noth) to try and chip away at Alicia. So Alicia (Julianna Margulies) had to take on Peter too. Of course this didn't sit well with Eli (Alan Cumming). He threatened to take Johnny's new job away if Alicia didn't back off. But he wasn't going to back down so easily thanks to a pep talk from Marissa (Sarah Steele). And in the end he went after the big fish: Alicia. The episode ended with their kiss. Surprise!

Earlier in the episode, David Lee (Zach Grenier) and Louis Canning (Michael J. Fox) tried to get Alicia to give Louis' money to a Palestinian charity that may have supported Hamas.

Oh, Prady reveled he's not gay, just a Jesuit. Huh.

Gasp count: 1.

Some other things:
"Technology just seems to get more and more complicated, doesn't it?" 3D printing is still so bizarre!

"I'm thinking about getting a tramp stamp. What do you think?"—Marissa

"God, handsome men are so weak."

The Good Wife airs Sundays, 9 p.m. on CBS.
