Peter Florrick announces his candidacy for his former State's Attorney position and Alicia is caught in the middle between him and Will Gardner. There is much change at the office as Will and Diane Lockhart find a new business partner who seems to have his own ideas on how the firm should be run. In court, Judge Howard Matchick appoints Alicia to provide advice to someone who insists on defending himself. He is accused of murdering his business partner but his defense is that he is the victim of a government conspiracy as retaliation for publishing sensitive government documents on his whistle-blower web site. Alicia gets permission to assign Kalinda to do some leg work and finds the source of the original information posted to the web site.
