Quite a lovely episode for Christine Baranski with so many great scenes! I love that Diane is back in control of her life and Baranski has been killing it now that Diane’s taking back the reins. I’m so glad that they’ve chosen this direction for Diane and Kurt; maybe with Veep wrapping soon (I believe the series goes back into production at the end of the summer), Gary Cole with have a more prominent role in Season 3? What an emotional final scene with Adrian’s return to the firm. Delroy Lindo could not have been better. If he hadn’t already more than earned an Emmy nomination before tonight, he damn well should’ve sealed the deal with that last scene; wishful thinking, I know.

Thanks for sharing, Riley!
I think these are poor FYC choices. They could’ve caught a lot more attention from the few voters who still watch the DVDs by submitting the episodes centered on impeachment, the golden shower tape, and the shooting at the firm. Though last year they submitted the entire season and only nabbed the one (deserved) nomination, so I don’t think in the case of The Good Fight the screener makes much of an impact anyway…

Amazing episode. The Good Fight is week after week becoming more strong for me. Season 1 had some flaws, but now I can say TGF is truly great and one of my favorite shows.May 20, 2018 at 2:41 pm #1202550570

Judith Light will guest star on season finale as Lucca’s mom!May 25, 2018 at 8:34 am #1202553755
Just realized… this means The Good Fight probably didn’t submit their strongest episode for writing (Day 471 written by William Finkelstein). If voters only received the first three episodes, then that would mean the Season 2 premiere is the episode they chose.May 27, 2018 at 10:08 am #1202554521

The episodes that were sent isn’t necessary the episode they will chose for the categories. HBO sent just the first two episodes of Game of Thrones and of course it will not be the only submission.May 27, 2018 at 10:11 am #1202554523
The finale wasn’t the strongest episode, but a good end for a awesome season. The Good Fight is really something special. Every thing in this series is great and should be recognize. I hope season 3 will be even better, without some flaws that season 1 and the first half of this season had.May 27, 2018 at 10:54 am #1202554531
Love the whole second season. I hope this will get the Emmy love that it deserves.May 27, 2018 at 11:44 am #1202554554
I’m a little behind on this, but for continuity’s sake…

The Good Fight continued to deliver with its Season 2 finale. I thought the episode was thrilling to watch from start to finish with Diane under attack by the “big” guy himself. I thought this episode was extremely well-written and would make for a nice submission in Writing for a Drama Series (written by the Kings). This series has REALLY stepped it up from its first season. I think the writers realized we weren’t super invested in Maya and her family’s plot and once they moved on from that, the show really grew into its own.
Christine Baranski deserves a nomination for Lead Actress in a Drama Series this year. Personally, I felt like she didn’t necessarily deserve it for Season 1, where she came across as more of a supporting player. She has been delivering the goods all season long, so hopefully she can breakthrough (although I will not be holding my breath, given the platform… CBS All Access).
If Emmy voters actually watch the Season 2 finale, I will not be surprised if Margo Martindale not only gets nominated, but wins Guest Actress in a Drama Series. In a single scene in this week’s episode opposite Audra Macdonald, she KILLS IT!!! Chews up the scenery and spits it out! Props to Margo for making the most of her guest spot. Additionally, Andrea Martin has been a hoot to watch this season and I wouldn’t mind seeing her recognized.
In general, Season 2 has been strong and deserves to be recognized by the Emmys this year! Once again, not sure if voters get CBS All Access. I know they watched The Good Wife back in the day, so some voters have to be tuning in, right?

I think the season finale was a perfect end to a truly stellar season. I really appreciate how the Kings brought back a lot of small moments from earlier episodes to bear in Diane’s scenes testifying in front of the grand jury, and I love that the conspiracy charges were serious but not self-serious and instead handled with humor and a wink to the genre–really nicely directed by Robert King. What a treat to see Baranski and McDonald, and Martin and Judith Light (!) spend a whole episode together; they’re all such incredible actresses and I’m so glad The Good Fight exists to bring them all together on one series. Martindale made the absolute most of her short scene here and, by her own Emmy history, could turn it into an award-winning appearance.
I know I’m biased, but this absolutely should be up for Drama Series this year. I was a big fan of the first season, but that truly pales in comparison to what they delivered this time around. If voters were watching the series, I think it would be hard to disagree. I’d also nominate it for Writing, Baranski, Lindo, Alda, and Martindale. Fingers crossed for some sort of miracle that results in at least one of these happening.
