Alicia finds herself at the center of a State inquiry, run by Cary Agos, when a tape of Glenn Child's deposition in the Northbrook murder case is given to a journalist. Alicia is the main suspect given husband Peter's run for office. Eli Gold sees no advantage for either candidate and thinks there must be a third candidate getting ready to throw their hat in the ring. He gets Diane Lockhart to deliver to the message to the candidate not to run but doesn't quite get it right. In court, Alicia is defending the organizer of a rave where a stampede led to the death of several people. Alicia finds herself in front of a judge who has taken an obvious dislike to her. She's also paired with someone she once argued against and who proves to be very effective. She is obviously out to protect the interests of the co-defendant at the expense of Alicia's client.
