How do Cary and Diane feel about Alicia’s run for State’s Attorney?
Alicia has announced her candidacy with a splashy press conference and a TV interview with legal commentator Frank Prady — and yet what will happen to Florrick-Agos-Lockhart, a firm just barely getting its footing, should Alicia win the election? Thus far, Cary and Diane haven’t expressed a single word of support or dismay — or even acknowledged the enormity of their high-profile colleague possibly abandoning ship.
Is Peter sleeping with Ramona?
Sure, we ended Season 5 wondering if the Illinois governor was about to pull a Bill-and-Monica with Ramona’s eager intern daughter. But if Peter was actually going to have a post-prostitute-scandal dalliance, wouldn’t a sexy, recently divorced, long-time friend — and recent addition to his staff — make more sense? And lest we forget, Alicia all but gave her hubby the green light to explore extra-marital options toward the end of Season 5, so…
Is Robyn still employed by Florrick-Agos-Lockhart?
Diane made it clear while in talks to join the fledgling firm that Kalinda’s hiring was non-negotiable — despite the fact that Robyn was already in place as in-house investigator. Since Diane and Kalinda have come aboard, however, Jess Weixler’s perky alter-ego has been completely MIA. Surely the firm didn’t pink-slip Robyn right after she’d offered her own life savings to help Cary make bail, right?
What happened with that attempt (by Castro?) to smear Alicia’s reputation by getting her pulled over on suspicion of a DUI?
Granted, our protagonist passed her breathalyzer — she’d only had one drink, after all. But the setup still worked when pictures of that shady cop pulling over Saint Alicia wound up on some sketchy news site and called her drinking into question. Did that smear campaign not have legs — or will it come back to haunt her before election day?
Aren’t Alicia’s regular cocktail hours with Finn a conflict of interest — or at least a source of some mutual guilt?
I mean, yes, their chemistry is hot — and he’s supporting her run for State’s Attorney — but dude is also trying to put her business partner behind bars for a very long time.
Did Castro tip off Bishop about those turncoat witnesses?
Let’s do the math: Kalinda tracked down Bishop’s missing crew member Trey Walker — and his lab-tech cousin, who it turns out was responsible for deep-sixing the cocaine evidence that Cary is accused of misplacing. Kalinda called Finn Polmar and offered access to these witnesses. Finn shared the intel with his boss, Castro. And now… Trey and his cousin are dead. Provided someone wasn’t tailing Kalinda during the course of her investigation — and c’mon, who would pull that off? — and keeping in mind that only Castro benefits if an innocent Cary gets convicted, the weaseliest of weasels is looking pretty good for the crime, no?
Will Kalinda and Cary’s flirtation land him back in jail?
There’s not much getting past Cary’s pre-trial services officer — played by the legendary Linda Lavin — but despite her demand that he cut off all contact with Kalinda, the beleaguered attorney openly texted with his sometime lover in court last week. Given that his Uber-trip to Indiana already put his bail in jeopardy, we’re wondering if this latest dalliance couldn’t be the auger that breaks his thin ice.
Has Alicia reconciled with her brother?
When last we saw Owen, he was storming off in disgust, having just been questioned by Alicia about his secret relationship with a married Palestinian man who dabbles in bareback gay porn. We know our protagonist is a busy woman; has she had time to reach out and make things right with one of her closest confidantes?
Will Alicia and Peter’s separate lives come out in her campaign?
Given the media’s fascination with the then/now podium images from 2009 and 2014, it seems impossible that Candidate Alicia’s relationship with her husband won’t receive more scrutiny as her campaign heats up. Will the media catch wind that hers is a marriage of convenience? Not only do Peter and Alicia never spend a night under the same roof, but their recent brutal argument took place in a not-entirely-private hotel back hallway.
How exactly was Kalinda able to make her ex-husband vanish?
Did she have him killed (or do the deed herself)? Was it blackmail? Did she chain him up in the basement of a TCBY shop at some remote Midwestern rest stop? We’re probably never going to get this one answered, are we?
