For a moment during the second episode, I wondered if the producers were going to write Maia out of the show by actually having her sent to prison for five years.

And then... alas, no.

There's no way anyone's writing Leslie out unless she decides she wants to leave the show on her own. Her career would probably take a huge hit if they just wrote her out. And as long as she's dating Kit, she has leverage.

Not done with the show, but her story line just slipped out of first place; the tension between Audra Ann and Christine will probably be the centerpiece now, followed by Cush and Whatsisname's Adam's Rib schtick, and Rose will go back to being a first-year associate.

It's clear the producers have no clue what to do with Maia now that her key storyline has limped to a conclusion. In the most recent episode, they tried (in vain) to turn her character into "free-wheelin' gal-pal Maia, who gets drunks with Marissa and helps her hook up with dudes!" It didn't work.
Sarah Steele is one spot behind Rose Leslie in the opening credits, and yet is a thousand times more watchable and engaging. Marissa gets center stage in most storylines on the show, as well. If they need to fill the "ingenue" slot in the series, it should go to her, and Leslie can move along.
Also, not nearly enough Cush Jumbo in episode #3!

We're at the halfway point of the season and I still love the show, but I'm not sure the whole "kill all the lawyers" arc is really working.
It feels like an afterthought most episodes ("oh, let's not forget to drop in a passing mention that some other lawyer viewers have never seen and don't care about has been found dead!"), and there's no sense that any of the key characters on the show are actually in peril. The ricin scare was good, but that was the only high point. There are no tangible stakes.
It might have been more compelling had one of the partners/associates (Diane, Lucca, Adrian) actually been given a stalker, whose threats/actions grow more ominous/deadly as the season goes on, and who begins a "kill all the lawyers" series of attacks as a way of making his/her target fear for their own life AND the lives of the other lawyers in the city.

Thanks, R53. Glad to hear Lucca is safe. I'm trying to figure out which of those three victims would have the most impact, dramatically.
I agree with R57 that Liz could make sense for the reason cited, but would viewers (or the firm, for that matter) really care that much? She's too new.
Boseman being shot would definitely impact both the firm and the show's viewers, but I love Delroy Lindo so I'm hoping the mere notion of killing off his character is something the producers would never consider.
Diane is the only one who's been anxiously sounding the "we in danger, girls!" alarm at least once in each episode, and she's been the most paranoid about the killings.
I think she's a safe bet (wounded but not killed, of course), with Boseman a close second.

Because THAT twist would make the whole "kill all the lawyers!" storyline (and Diane's love triangle) FANTASTIC and narratively satisfying.

No more Maia's soporific family drama and Matthew Perry's bloated face (eugh!), Elsbeth's quirky outbursts being used sparingly like spice, more focus on Diane and her [italic]finally[/italic] going full scorched-earth on the world.

I agree about Justin Bartha, R87. Considering the current climate, and how they’ve been writing Cush Jumbo’s character as being fiercely independent, does it make any sense that she would just fall into his arms and become his wife? They seem to be heading that direction, and I really hope they don’t. They’ve completely given up on Maia though. They could just write her out completely and no one would care or know.
I’m loving Baranski, but for the love of god, can she please stop fiddling with her face? It’s getting scarily mask like.
I was hoping Matt Czuchry’s show would get canceled so he could be in next season. Did it get picked up for next year? There was a funny quote in a review of his new show, saying something like “What Matt Czuchry is slumming in until he gets a call from the Kings to be on The Good Fight.”
|by Anonymous||reply 89||05/13/2018|
It's not (just) the plastic surgery; Baranski seems to be sporting inappropriate makeup for her skin, which only compounds the problem. It's mostly bearable but some of the close-ups are truly lethal. The makeup people on that show should pay more attention to the special needs of mature skin. However, her attire is always on point and the one this week is again mesmerizing to behold in HD. And Audra's ombre ensemble kicks major ass as well.
Oh, and there's a nice cameo from a certain someone this episode, which I won't spoil. I do wonder when it was filmed because I can't decide if he's slumming it or not.

For what its worth R108, that is not actually the way it goes. Many Americans believe that to be true.
Perhaps The SCOTUS yes, with a grave caveat. You may not be aware that HRC had received complaints about Thomas’s wife being a paid lobbyist for extreme right wing groups with cases pending on SCOTUS Docket and Thomas not recusing himself. There would have been an indep investigation into his grave conflict of interest and his removal from the Bench.
Few Americans realize that Lawyers have a big say in whether a judge can remain in the Court system. Complaints can be filed and Judges removed - though not the Supremes- not quite that easy. With the Alt Rights utter desperation they are not vetting these nutters very well. This guy would be toast sooner than later.

Not R109 but but reminded me a bit of some of the more “absurd” or dark comedy X-files. Like the parking garage scene where the mystery person vanishes, then reappears and says “oh my car’s the other way”. About on par with Elsbeth Tascioni fighting with her Alexa/Siri.

I agree with R109, too. I was disappointed.
The absurd, over-the-top Lucca-in-labor scenes (in the car, especially!) felt wildly out of sync with the tone of the show... and I say that as someone who loves that character and the show.
Lucca's shrieking with her feet on the windshield and Maia frantically tapping on her phone while speeding through the streets of Chicago were just silly, and the whole feuding-mothers-in-law/"let's all swear to make you feel better!" storylines were equally ridiculous. Lucca went from a strong, confident and capable character to a hysterical bad-rom-com cliché as soon as the first contraction hit.
And I thought Diane's season-long storyline ended with a whimper instead of a bang. I didn't have that "I can't wait to see what happens next!" feeling that I did at the end of season one.

r111 See, that was my favourite part. The perfect self-aware little wink from the writers saying, "We know all of this Trump stuff on the show and in the real world has been silly."
I loved the labour scenes and Diane's conclusion as well because they were a nice light surprise after we've been promised an all-out war by the Republicans an episode or two ago. Summer is starting and I've no patience for that heavy stuff anymore.

Oh, and I thought the first season was so bad I've already erased it from my memory, so I can't really compare the two.

Can't wait. This is the best show around.

Oh, and how killer is that salmon coat? Love how Rose Leslie is dressed like a black hole; the showrunners know we all hate her. Hopefully, she gets even less to do this season.

I love this show too.

Rose really does fade into the wallpaper. She didn't even get good lighting on her face, like Sara Steele.

Audra was a voice major at Juilliard, R62.

Love this show too but last season was a little meh. Hope this season is better.

I vastly preferred the second season to the first one.

Welcome back, Cush Jumbo!
Hopefully, they give her more to do this season, now that the pregnancy is done, on- and offscreen.
Is there a Season Three thread?

Cush Jumbo and Baranski are the best things on that show.

Season three thread at the link, Cush Jumbo Troll et al.

Yes indeed, we too use "cookies." Don't you just LOVE clicking on these things on every single site you visit? I know we do! You can thank the EU parliament for making everyone in the world click on these pointless things while changing absolutely nothing. If you are interested you can take a look at our privacy/terms or if you just want to see the damn site without all this bureaucratic nonsense, click ACCEPT and we'll set a dreaded cookie to make it go away. Otherwise, you'll just have to find some other site for your pointless bitchery needs.
