Peter finds out about Jalicia and blows a gasket, so Alicia demands a divorce. Cary bids a scunnered farewell after all the tedious shenanigans at the firm come to a head.
Alicia and Jason’s romance is frankly just gross, but thankfully Veronica and Owen gatecrash their Sunday sesh. Meanwhile, boring things rumble on.

Wall-to-wall Good Wife joy with a Silicon Valley case that leads Alicia back into the earholes of the NSA. Plus Lockhart, Agos and Lee are being racists and oh, Peter’s running for president…
