    Unpopular opinion: the writers have not known what to do with Diane for some time now.

    As much as I think Baranski is great in this role, I gotta echo this, it’s funny how they handled Trump winning over Hillary better than Biden over him.

    Best episode of the season along with “The End of Eli Gold”? Slattery and Baranski’s scenes this week were everything!

    Another strong episode. I love how they dovetailed so many of the season threads together – Ben-Baruch, the protests, the Collective – in the financial case of STR Laurie. I think it also stands out because it’s another instance of the whole ensemble playing together; the core cast this year is just so terrific. That scene of Christine and Audra together was so good, too.

    I agree that Audra is very under-appreciated, but I think that’s in part because it feels like Liz has seldom had a true season arc of her own. Season 5 was an exception and it felt like a real breakout for the character. I’m glad that has continued this season, too, with her power struggle with Ri’Chard.

    I am so glad this series seems to be ending on such a strong note with another excellent episode. I loved the legal machinations between Ri’Chard, Liz, and David Lee (glad to see him again, and a nice final appearance for Zach Grenier). The twist in the case was really well done. I also love what they’ve done with Phylicia Rashad’s character and the ingenious way they connected her organization to Season 5 – I did not see that coming! Very nice payoff to what they’ve been developing with her and Jay for the past few episodes. I’m also really excited to see what I imagine will be a looming showdown between Diane and Ri’Chard after his turn on her this week. But before that, what a lovely scene with Baranski and Braugher discussing depression and religion. The preview for next week looks like Baranski will have a few stellar scenes, too, so I’m already hyped. And finally, kudos to Robert King for his direction here. I wonder if he’s directing the series finale, too? Carrie Preston is behind the camera next week.

    Man I just love it when a show is at the end of an era and just creates the perfect tribute to its past and roots. Better Call Saul did that earlier this year with its final season, Doctor Who did that last week and now it looks like The Good Fight is taking a similar approach too. I loved how much the episode harked back to “Hitting the Fan” but almost like The Good Fight’s take on it. If you’ve seen The Good Wife (as I imagine most people who watch this show have) you’re just given a reminder of how much Diane has grown as a character but if you’ve not you’re given an additional bit of subtext. Brilliant!

    David more or less covered most of my other thoughts but I just want to add that I love how they’re covering Diane’s growing infatuations for Slattery’s character. It’s not been handled in a will they/won’t they way arc nor is how it all affects Kurt done in an overly dramatic or unnecessary manner. It’s just the story of an older woman finding herself drawn to someone who more and more feels perfect for her at this stage of her life and I just love it.

    I really liked some of the cameos from alumni of the Wife/Fight universe. I really feel like things are setting themselves up nicely for the finale with Diane and Kurt at a crossroads and a resolution to the whole central conflict of this universe seemingly being found in this week’s episode which makes me both excited but also incredibly sad. I don’t want to say goodbye to The Good Fight or Diane!

    Loved seeing the familiar faces. I’m so sad to see this show go.

    Baranski has an EMMY WORTHY tape with this week’s episode. I’m so not ready for this series to end!

    This was one of those Good Fight episodes where they lean into a liberal fantasy – what if we had our own Rupert Murdock? – only to show how thoroughly corruptible and toxic the whole system is. In other words, I loved it! Such a fun premise, and they got to lean into electoral politics in a way they haven’t done too often this year. Baranski was so damn good here, if only she would get a nomination so she could submit it… It’s hard to believe Diane and Kurt have been together on screen for 13 years now, and that scene worked so well because of just how well dynamite Baranski and Cole are together. I thought Charmaine Bingwa really stood out in this one, too. Her interrogation scene was so well performed. I genuinely have no idea where they’re heading with the series finale, but I am so excited and so sad to see it end.

    I know they’re the same streaming service but Paramount+ is obviously much bigger and more ambitious but I’m so glad this show ended up on here because CBS All Access would never have given it this splashy a press screening for the finale.

    There are no other words for Robert & Michelle King other than BRILLIANT!

    The Emmys having hardly recognized one of the best streaming shows for the best 6 years is inexcusable. Not that I have any hope left in me that they actually will. this episode alone however would have won them an Emmy for best series, writing, and directing back in the tape days.

    And John Slattery climbing another office building staircase… truly pitch perfect!

    The final 5 minutes were both absolutely horrifying and yet so quintessentially The Good Fight that honestly I couldn’t imagine the show ending any other way.

    I’m really glad that the characters’ arcs have all more or less been completed and yet they still feel so alive even as the show has finished. Take Diane for example. We’ve seen her martial strife, love triangle, pessimistic outlook towards the world as it crumbles and deep existential crisis all find some form of resolution in the finale. But it’s not as if Diane no longer has a purpose in life because the show has ended or like her story has ended (even though we’re not going to see any more of her as a character). Same with Liz now she’s finally revealed her father’s history to her son or Ri’chard now he’s finally made peace with his resentment towards Liz’s father. It all feels so natural (especially in retrospect to “End” which I actually think works as the perfect parallel to “The End of Everything”).

    The Good Fight in a lot of ways feels like the show that should never end. In part because of it being commentary on an ever evolving socio-political climate but also because its a drama driven by abstract character arcs as opposed to a firm plot. But the way it concluded was just perfect.

    I am just thankful that we got 6 years of Diane Lockhart and company. 6 years in a streamer with out been a rating hit or award magnet needs to be applauded. Any other place would had cancelled it years ago.
    great finale for a great series. I’m going to miss all the revolving characters that existed in this Good World.
