In the coming season’s second episode (airing Oct. 6), Alicia and Cary sue the NSA on behalf of search engine/frenemy Chumhum — unaware that in doing so, Lockhart/Gardner has landed in the spy agency’s notorious monitoring crosshairs.

The courtroom photos offer a first look at Outsourced alum Ben Rappaport as Alicia and Cary’s new colleague, Carey — who is fated to join them once Florrick, Agos & Associates gets of the ground — plus judge Jeffrey Tambor.
