In A solid, if not spectacular, episode, Will (Josh Charles) starts to make the most of his suspension from practising law as a trio of partners jockey for the position he's vacated. Will's sisters arrive to provide moral support and lend the episode a thread of comedy. In court defending a filmmaker, a frustrated Alicia (Julianna Margulies) resorts to a smart but sneaky tactic that has unexpected ramifications. Mamie Gummer, returning as the disingenuous Nancy Crozier, is yet another member of a terrific roster of guest stars who appear periodically and enliven this addictive legal drama.
