­Alicia and Diane wrestle with spousal privilege laws in a murder case that hinges on their ability to get a wife to testify against her wealthy investment-banker husband. On the personal front, Alicia, Peter and the kids adjust to him being home.

Bodyguard, Brad Boussard, is accused of killing his client, Miles Wagner, a partner in a mutual fund that was the largest feeder of money to Bernie Madoff’s Ponzi scheme. Brad was found covered in the victim’s blood giving CPR to Mr. Wagner. He also carries the same caliber gun that killed Miles, a 9mm, but the gun and Mr. Wagner’s briefcase filled with $50,000, were not found at the scene. Diane brings in a ballistics expert, Kurt McVeigh, who paints a different picture of the crime scene with his expert analysis, the first hole in the case against Brad. Jeremy Knox, Brad Boussard’s partner is put on the stand to testify, but Diane believes he’s lying and wants his alibi, provided by his wife checked out. Because of a donation made by Rachel Knox, Jeremy’s wife, in the amount of $50,000, when their bank counts were frozen, they’re able to put her on the stand where she testifies that her husband was not home at the time of Miles Wagner’s murder and he told her to get rid of the $50,000 upon his return. On the personal front, Peter gets acclimated to life at home and gathers his team at the apartment to discuss strategy and damage control.
