Will and Alicia are defending a man accused of having murdered his father after he threatened to cut the young man out of his will. Will knows the judge quite well but an incident on the basketball court leads him to believe that the judge is out to get even from the bench. At the client's request, the firm hires a jury specialist who supposedly can tell if the lawyers are getting the defense's message across. Kalinda thinks it's all a lot of bunk. She also reacts badly when Blake tells her that he is now her supervisor. Alicia goes ballistic as well when she learns Blake has been doing a background check on her. The internecine warfare at Lockhart Gardner & Bond continues when Will confronts Diane over her imminent departure, even threatening to hire guards to keep her out of her office. Will reassesses his position when he begins to suspect Derrick Bond of having his own hidden agenda. At Peter Florrick's campaign headquarters meanwhile, Eli Gold has his own problems - in the form of Peter's mother.
