'The Good Wife' recap: A Home At The End Of My Rope
Until, of course, Alicia pulls her whole Alicia Florrick routine on it, decides that the policemen planted a gun on the victim, breaks a million unspoken rules, and hurts a bunch of bossy old white man egos, to the point where they bring in Cary and basically pin this on Peter: That he covered up the possibly planted gun under advice from Eli, not wanting to start even more racial tension right before he announces his bid for the governorship in a few weeks.
Sound likely, or at least possible? Alicia agrees, and in the end she recuses herself -- but not before Mike Kresteva announces himself as a new form of Colin Sweeney, putting her in these weird ethical jams, and making fun of her values while also cheering them on. Not what I expected out of a Matthew Perry guest role at all, but certainly intriguing. He has that Wendy Scott-Carr kind of Silent Hill menace going on. Not cuddly at all. It's great.
