The Good Wife (CBS): New. Alicia takes the case of a military officer that says she was raped by a civilian contractor. A new wrinkle pops up for Peter’s campaign. So many guest stars in this one episode and all handled so well. I am always amazed at how well this show continues to mix in guest stars and multiple stories in each episode.
