    Absolutely agree with you, 24fanatic. I wrote an article yesterday making the case for Writing, Music & Lyrics, and Guest Actress nominations for this episode. Baranski and McDonald were also terrific, but it’s too much an ensemble episode for either to submit in the unlikely event of nominations for either of them. Next week, though, looks like a potential submission for Baranski. I don’t see a version of events in June where Baranski gets nominated, sadly, but she certainly deserves it. She’s doing great work this season. Plus, if Alan Alda could get nominated for The Blacklist a few years ago, hopefully he can land one here, too. I think Baranski said in an interview that he appears in 2 episodes.

    Between Alan Alda and Margo Martindale, it is make-or-break this year at the Emmys in the guest categories for this show.

    Definitely. I thought they’d get Carrie Preston and Dylan Baker in last year, but there easily could have been feelings of retread there with the former winning previously and the latter being a perennial in the category. Martindale and Alda, on the other hand, really should be able to get in unless CBS unwisely submits too many guests on the ballot.

    Best thing about this series being on CBS All Access? The legendary Alan Alda gets to drop an F-bomb. Ha! I enjoyed his guest starring role on this week’s episode, playing the slick, under-the-belt hitting lawyer that brings up all of Diane’s dirty laundry. I think he did enough to be considered for the Guest Actor Emmy… I’m kind of just hoping he gets in on his name alone to give the series some Emmy heat. Given the subject matter, I was really hoping for some killer scenes for Christine Baranski, but this wasn’t the Emmy tape I was hoping for. I did like her reaction shots in the court room though.

    The BEST scene of the episode was the final one between Delroy Lindo and Nyambi Nyambi. MAN! Does Delroy deserve an Emmy nomination, or what?! He’s a character actor that’s been around Hollywood for a long time and I would really like the Emmys to recognize him in Supporting Actor in a Drama Series! …especially considering how boring that category has become in recent years!!!

    Great episode!  I agree that Alan Alda had more than enough material to be a contender in Guest Actor, especially considering the nominations that The Good Wife used to get in that category. I also agree that this wasn’t the fireworks type of episode I expected for Baranski, especially given that they revisited the events of the Good Wife series finale; Baranski was excellent, though, especially in her scenes opposite Kurt, in court defending Tully, and those close-ups of her during Holly and Kurt’s testimonies. I think, based on Diane’s trajectory this season, that Baranski will get a bigger episode later this season (I’m also glad we get thirteen episodes this time around). Not to be too agreeable, but yes, Delroy Lindo deserves an Emmy nomination. He’s so good in this role!

    Great episode, better than the last week. And I need say, the people that made the trailers deserve some specific award. It is always epic previews.

    I’m a few days behind, but I loved this week’s episode and I’m so glad the Kings wrote this one. They brought such great, comedic hyperbole to the whole proceeding and never made it seem more significant that it is. I also liked how they brought Jane Lynch back into the fold (I was worried something about Maia’s case was resurfacing when I saw her in the preview…). Nice to have Martindale back, too, even though her first episode would make a better potential Emmy submission (as it would in Writing, too).

    Great episode today, yet again! I’m so glad we’re getting the extra three episodes this season, because they have so much to explore in the next few weeks. I’m also really happy that the shooting served to end Diane’s downward spiral; Baranski was great this week, especially in the scenes where you knew she was thinking about Will’s death. Great to have Alan Alda back, he’s such a great charismatic baddie in the Good Wife & Fight vein. I’m so glad to see Mike Colter and Wallace Shawn again, too. I’d say this is one of the best episodes from an already excellent season. I’m really looking forward to the home-stretch!

    Umm… OKAY! Can I RAVE real quick on how amazing this week’s episode is?!!!!! Like, seriously… The Good Fight knocked it out of the park with this one! The whole assault on Chicago lawyers thread came to a climax with the shooting of Adrian Boseman. I’ve been waiting for Christine Baranski to have a serious Emmy tape since the pilot of this spin-off series and now FINALLY she has it with this episode! Baranski gave us all the feels… witnessing another partner get shot in her lifetime, Diane Lockhart goes through all the emotions. She shared both tender moments with guest star Alan Alda (providing another episode worthy of being nominated for Guest Actor in a Drama Series) and ferocious strength against his character, after discovering her clients were being poached by him while her firm was suffering a crisis. I mean… what an amazing moment in television history to see Christine Baranski basically tell Alan Alda to f*** off. That scene alone was worthy of winning an Emmy!

    After tonight’s episode, I believe Christine Baranski actually might have a shot at landing a nomination for Lead Actress in a Drama Series! That field is super crowded, but Baranski just made herself competitive. And I also believe Alan Alda has secured his Guest Actor nomination. It was nice to see the return of Mike Coulter and Dylan Baker, but neither did anything super amazing. Very cool to see Broadway’s Katrina Lenk (Tony nominee for The Band’s Visit) guest star as well.

    Season 2 has been killing it!!! If the show weren’t on CBS All Access, maybe it would fair better. I guess we’ll have to wait and see if voters watch or take notice.

    This was sublime. TGF’s best episode yet and close to “Hitting the Fan”‘s level of greatness. Baranski is on fire and next week episode seems to be a even better episode for her.

    You honestly have said everything I was about to write except mine would be in ALL CAPS. This show isn’t so unbelievably good.
