As a favor to her mother, Alicia represents a group of programmers against a software company thatâ€™s threatening to fire any of its workers who are unwilling to sign their draconian employment contract. One of the employees recently died as a result of the companyâ€™s working conditions, and Alicia works with the widow and her co-workers to build a case. Things go downhill quickly, however, when the CEO fires all of the employees represented by Alicia and brings in Nancy Crozier as defense counsel. In order to save her clientsâ€™ jobs, Alicia must help the engineers form a union â€" an act that doesnâ€™t sit well with Lockhart/Gardnerâ€™s named partners. Peter asks Alicia to formally re-commit to him, and she is torn. She does give him a needed boost in the polls, however, when she goes on the offensive against Krestiva in a television interview. After hearing about Aliciaâ€™s case, the assistants at Lockhart/Gardner consider forming their own union if the partnerâ€™s donâ€™t do something about their pay and working conditions. Kalinda learns that Robyn is more of a mystery than she had previously thought.
