The Good Fight season 4 episode 2 will have a lot to live up to as the season premiere shocked many viewers. The CBS All Access show, which stars Christine Baranski as Diane Lockhart, will also show Reddick, Boseman & Lockhart wading into the uncharted corporate territory.
After being purchased by multinational STR Laurie, law firm Reddick, Boseman & Lockhart faces new challenges as a company. They have to deal with unprecedented corporate oversight and the sudden shock of no longer being a small Chicago firm, according to CNN.
On the other hand, Diane will come across a familiar face in the court, which could be David Lee (Zach Grenier). He was a supporting character on The Good Wife, who served as the top divorce lawyer on Lockhart/Gardner.
The Good Fight season 4 episode 1 recap
In the previous episode of The Good Fight, the show offered a look at an alternative reality where Hillary Clinton won the 2016 elections. The premiere also presented a possible outcome of a Clinton presidency: Harvey Weinstein winning the Presidential Medal of Freedom.
According to Vulture, Diane found out that she landed Weinstein as a client, which could prove to be a lucrative deal for the firm. But, she did not want to represent Weinstein because of the rumors she has heard about the movie producer.
However, everyone else in the firm wanted her to. This includes Luca (played by Cush Jumbo), who pays a visit to Weinstein in one of his infamous hotel suites.
At the end of the episode, viewers will find out that everything was just a part of Diane’s dreams. It turns out she got knocked out of bed and got unconscious after a SWAT team raided their apartment.
