Tonight’s episode of The Good Wife kicks off with Alicia’s campaign manager putting together her campaign commercial, they put together clips of Peter endorsing Alicia and a heartfelt Finn describing the day that Will was shot and killed in court. Alicia argues that she doesn’t want Will’s death in her campaign commercial – but her manager informs her it has to be if they want the video to go viral.
Diane and Cary meet with an FBI agent named Harper, they are investigating Bishop’s organization and they want him to help them build a case. Harper and Delaney share a wire tap they have of Bishop ordering one of his men to kill Cary and get rid of their problem. Delaney says that the recording was five days ago, so his clock is ticking. Diane asks for a copy of the tape because it is static and they want to verify its validity. Cary storms out and tells Harper that the next time he wants him to rat Bishop out he shouldn’t invite the girl that is sleeping with his girlfriend. Diane follows Cary and he reassures her that the tape is a fake and Bishop was in Florida on the 13th, the day they supposedly recorded it.
Diane heads back to the office and fills Kalinda in on her meeting with Harper and Delaney. She wants Kalinda to see if there is any way the recording is real. Kalinda gets right on it and tells Diane that they have to hire Cary a bodyguard, just in case the recording is real.
Alicia arrives at work and Frank Prady is waiting for her. He shows her a box and says that Castro gave it to him when he dropped out of the race, its full of dirt on her and Peter. Frank says that he hasn’t opened it yet, and he doesn’t want to use it. He says he won’t go negative with the campaign, if she agrees not to. Alicia isn’t buying it – Frank leaves her his private cell phone number and says that whenever she wants to talk she can cell him, he doesn’t want to be enemies. He leaves his business card on top of the box of dirt from Castro.
Cary heads arrives at his apartment and Kalinda is waiting inside. She says that Bishop lied to him and the recording could be real – he left Florida early and he was at home on the 13th. His bodyguard arrives and Kalinda introduces him to Cary. He is going to stay with him at his apartment all night and then escort him to work.
Alicia sits in bed and opens the box of dirt from Prady. She finds pictures in it of Finn leaving her apartment, and pictures of Peter out to dinner with his intern’s mother Ramona. And a picture of him shirtless with her – taken through a window. Alicia calls him to confront him and then when he answers she chickens out and says she just wanted to schedule their joint interview for tomorrow.
Alicia meets with her campaign manager the next morning, they have created a commercial implying that Frank is a closeted gay and have him dressed up in a dinosaur costume. She tells them that they can’t use it and she thinks Frank is going to run a clean race.
Cary arrives at the office with his bodyguard Carter, the elevator opens and Bishop is standing there – he sees that Cary has hired a bodyguard. Cary panics and calls Kalinda, he says that now Bishop knows he has hired security so he is going to think that he flipped on him. Kalinda is with Delaney, she hangs up and tells Delaney she wants a copy of the wire tap.
Alicia arrives at Peter’s office for their joint interview, and runs in to Ramona. They sit down on a couch and hold hands – and Peter begins telling the story of the first time they met. Ramona watches uncomfortably as Alicia describes how happy Peter makes her feel and their children.
After the interview Alicia stops by Finn’s new office, he can tell that something is wrong. He offers her a seat so they can catch up.
Alicia meets up with Peter and tells him that he needs to stop sleeping with Ramona, he tries to deny it but she shows him the pictures. She realizes that he was probably sleeping with her when they worked together years ago and she was pregnant with Grace. She tells Peter that if he wants to be re-elected and if he wants her to be elected then he has to “zip up his pants, shut his mouth, and stop banging the help.”
The next day Alicia meets with her campaign manager – they tell her that they have to go with the courthouse shooting. Surprisingly she is all for it, and sits down and films the commercial. A few hours later her campaign manager calls her and says there is a problem – Frank released his own campaign commercial which stars his mother and she is wearing the exact same dress as Alicia. Now, she has to reshoot her entire interview.
Kalinda finally gets her hands on a copy of the wiretap where Bishop orders one of his men to kill Cary. She has her tech guy go over it and he confirms that the video hasn’t been edited, but he will need to research it further to see if it is actually Bishop’s voice. Meanwhile, Cary is certain now that the recording is a fake because when he seen Bishop in the office he said “I should have called.” But, the voice on the recording says I should have “phoned you.”
Meanwhile, Frank Prady released a video slamming Alicia and he team is preparing to release the closeted gay video that she told them not to use. Kalinda’s tech guy finishes analyzing the recording and he says it is 100% authentic and definitely Bishop ordering the hit on Cary. Kalinda calls Cary to warn him – but he says he is at Bishop’s house and he left his bodyguard in the car.
Bishop demands to know why he has a bodyguard, and Cary tells him that he heard the recording ordering to have him killed. Bishop says that the tape isn’t fake – he was just talking and blowing off steam and afterwards they talked some sense in to him. Bishop tells Cary that if he doesn’t hurt him, then he won’t hurt him. Cary leaves and calls Kalinda and says there is nothing to worry about and Bishop didn’t mean what he was saying.
Alicia’s commercial with Frank dressed as a dinosaur is leaked and she calls Frank. She explains it wasn’t her, it was her campaign, and he explains that his team leaked the commercial about her. They agree that their teams are going to keep dragging them through the mud and all they can do is keep resisting.
