­For the first time, we see SLG go squarely on the offensive with prosecutors, filing a multimillion-dollar malicious prosecution suit against the S.A.’s office for ruining an innocent defendant’s life. Childs is desperate to defend his department’s decisions while covering his own ass; Diane and Will debate how to best utilize Alicia in a case against her husband’s political opponent; and Kalinda and Cary go head-to-head in trying to determine the true culprit’s identity. All of the maneuvering builds to one explosive conflict between Alicia and Glenn Childs that could make or break the case—and ultimately, the campaign.

Alicia’s freewheeling, energetic brother surfaces in her life again-- and levies a surprising (and false) accusation against Peter. In navigating the fallout, Owen tells Alicia the truth: he thinks she should leave her husband.
