The excellence of acting and writing on this CBS drama continued in its second year, stoked by a jaw-dropping revelation that apparently has changed the relationship of Alicia and Kalinda (Julianna Margulies, Archie Panjabi) forever.
Diane and Will (Christine Baranski, Josh Charles) worry about the operation of the law firm thanks to a new partner (Michael Ealy), and Peter (Chris Noth) plots with strategist Eli (Alan Cumming) for a return to public office. Michael J. Fox is back as sly attorney Louis Canning; guests also include Jane Alexander, America Ferrera and Mamie Gummer ("Off the Map"), daughter of Meryl Streep. *** (Not rated: AS, P)
