She takes the reins of her future.
Over the course of the series, we've seen Diane take on her fair share of accomplishments and challenges, personal and professional. The quick-witted lawyer got married, faced heartbreak, and was nearly removed from her own law firm. She has become a mentor to the show's leading lady, played by Julianna Margulies, and when Alicia hesitated about accepting partnership at the firm Diane gave Alicia the push she needed sharing that “when the door you have been knocking at finally swings open, you don’t ask why. You run through.”
