Itâ€™s Willâ€™s first day back on the job, and heâ€™s leading a wrongful death case against a police officer accused of tasering a man to death during a protest riot. At first, Lockhart/Gardnerâ€™s victory seems inevitable, but when an unknown jury member starts slipping questions to the judge--something now allowed due to the passage of a new law--Willâ€™s case begins to falter. With Kalinda off her game thanks to the re-appearance of her husband, Will and Alicia must find a way to win the case while stemming the continuous questions from the jury.
Alicia finds herself caught between two worlds as Diane asks her to speak with Maddie Hayward, a feminist financier who now owns most of their building, about re-structuring their lease. But while Maddie isnâ€™t interested in helping Lockhart/Gardner, she does take a personal liking to Alicia and decides to support Peterâ€™s campaign. Meanwhile, trustee Clark Hayden has begun making layoffs, and Alicia finds that her opinions might hold a little too much weight with the enigmatic Hayden.
