Tonight’s episode of The Good Wife kicks off at Alicia Florrick’s house – she and Jason spend the entire night watching movies, eating pizza, and having sex. There is a knock at the door – Alicia tries to ignore it, but it’s her mother. She tells Jason to stay in the bedroom and puts a chair against the door so that he can’t get out.
Alicia finally answers the door and her mom says that they have to have a family meeting – she is being an emotional basketcase. Alicia tries to get rid of her but her mother won’t take “no” for an answer, and barges inside. She tells Alicia that she met a financial advisor and he promised to “double her money.” Veronica explains that she was ripped off, and Alicia promises to talk to David Lee for her. Then, her mom rushes in to the bedroom and meets Jason. There is another knock at the door, it’s Alicia’s brother Owen, apparently Veronica invited him over for the family meeting.
In the kitchen, Veronica shows Alicia a letter from her investor – Gino Davidson, apparently she lost $100,000. Alicia is confused, she thought David Lee was handling her mother’s money. While she is trying to save Jason from Veronica and Owen, there is another knock at the door. It’s Eli and Peter’s new lawyer Mike – they want to know if she has been subpoenaed to testify at Peter’s trial yet. Alicia tries to get rid of them, but they won’t take “no” fan an answer either – she invites them in to have breakfast with her mother, Brother, and Jason. The doorbell rings again, a clerk has come to serve Alicia papers – Veronica invites him in for bagels too. Basically, Alicia’s house has turned in to a circus.
At court the next day, Eli meets Connor Fox – he will be prosecuting Peter Florrick. Eli tries to get Connor to spill the beans and tell them what he is prosecuting Peter for. Connor jokes that he’s not giving up the care. The grand jury is being brought in to witness the interrogations. They are behind closed doors – but Mike and Eli are posted up outside to try and get their hands on any information that they can.
At the firm, David is meeting with Veronica and Owen to discuss her money. Alicia panics and calls her mother and warns her not to tell David Lee that she is sleeping with Jason. When David Lee realizes it is Alicia on the phone, he takes the phone, and asks Alicia if Diane is making apower play and trying to make the firm an all-woman firm. They have information from clients that Diane is up to something. Diane tells David Lee and Cary that Diane is up to no such thing. Meanwhile, Diane sees Cary and David on the phone in the office and she is suspicious that they are up to something.
Ruth Eastman shows up at court, apparently she was subpoenaed to testify against Peter. Eli is furious when he sees her going in to the grand jury room. He corners Ruth and threatens her – and warns her that if she sells Peter out, she will never work on a campaign again.
David sends Jason to track down Gino Davidson. According to Gino, he didn’t lose Veronica’s money – she did. He teaches a class on investing in the stock market, and he met Veronica. He told her about an investment he was doing in river boat casinos and Veronica told him that she wanted in. Gino says he warned Veronica that it was high-risk, but she didn’t care. After their chat, Jason calls Alicia and fills her in. It doesn’t look like Veronica was scammed, she lost her money on her own. Alicia steps in to a bathroom at the court house to talk on the phone – and she realizes that she can hear the grand jury room through the vent. She runs and gets Eli so that he can listen in on Ruth’s testimony.
Eli listens in on the testimony until a woman in a wheelchair kicks him out of the handicapped bathroom. Eli rushes back to Alicia and Mike and fills them in on what he has heard – apparently they are investigating something that happened in 2012 with Lloyd Garber, it looks like there may have been a payoff. And, somehow the FBI is involved and they are calling the investigation “V-Lock” but Eli has no idea what that means.
Alicia rushes to the firm to talk to Jason – he is working another angle with a previous identity theft to try and get Veronica her money back, even though she lost it on her own. It turns out Veronica was put on a “sucker’s list” – that conmen share because she is gullible and easy to scam. Alicia corners Jason and tells him that she needs his help on another case, Peter’s. She apologizes if it is awkward – it’s not every day her boyfriend has to help her husband. Jason agrees to try and figure out what happened in 2012 with Lloyd Garber.
Jason has a plan – he sends Veronica and Owen back to Gino’s office to bait him. Veronica lies and says that she wants to invest her husband’s pension to try and get back some of her money. Gino is more than happy to help Veronica lose $90,000 more – and Owen and Veronica record their entire conversation.
Alicia heads out to lunch with Diane. She puts Diane on the spot and asks her if it is true that she is trying to make it an all female firm. Diane insists that Cary is crazy – and she is doing no such thing. Diane says that she just doesn’t think Cary is “right” for the firm, and she doesn’t respect him because he is “no Will Gardiner.” Alicia is obviously shocked – Diane wants her to help push Cary out of the firm. Alicia heads back to the office and tells Lucca about her meeting with Diane, she wants her advice – she is torn between helping Diane or telling Cary the truth. Lucca thinks that Alicia should come clean to Cary and not sell him out.
Eli shows up at the firm, he thinks that “V-Lock” stands for the “People Vs. Locke” – a court case from 2012. Cary was working on the case as a prosecutor. He explains to Eli that Richard Locke was accused of murdering his girlfriend’s ex – he claimed that it was an accident, and it was declared a mistrial. Cary says that nothing stood out about the case – but Richard had an amazing defense team, the best money could buy, and there was a rumor that his father was someone important with a lot of money.
Later that night Alicia heads home and she and Jason try to pick up where they left off in the bedroom. Alicia’s mom Veronica shows up at her door and interrupts…again…to thank Jason for helping her get her money back.
