    It’s the next ep where things get really interesting, but I was a little weirded out by Kalinda’s approach. Been burned once too often, I guess.

    There is a sense of caricature in some characters, David Lee for example. Granted, with only 41 or so minutes to tell a story, you need icons, but some of the characters do seem a little sparse in humanity details. And, of course, The Good Wife is a melodrama….

      I think it’s great that Kalinda recognizes and fights for her own value, but her negotiations with Will and Cary were off-putting, almost greedy. I don’t think Lockhart Gardner is always on the up-and-up, but it seems justified to me that she doesn’t get health care because she’s basically a freelancer, not exclusive with the firm. Like I said in the finale recap, I thought it was kind of hypocritical of her to get all emotional when she found out about Cary’s offer to Robyn. Cary’s offer makes sense as a business tactic, and Kalinda’s all-business about the negotiations anyway.

      Seriously, David Lee has been getting increasingly over-the-top.

      • Wyrd Smythe says:

        Agreed. I kind of get her anger at having an offer on the table for her and Cary also making an offer to her “competition” at the same time. Seems like Cary could have waited for Kalinda’s reply before going to Robyn. But other than that, yeah, she’s not being very reasonable in light of her own behavior.
