The Good Wife Recap: ‘Bitcoin For Dummies,’ Starring Kalinda’s Sad Puppy Eyes

  • Note: The following contains spoilers if you have not seen Season 3, Episode 13 of CBS’s “The Good Wife,” entitled, “Bitcoin For Dummies.”
  • One week — last week in particular — you’re giving viewers such juicy drama and wonderful character moments and the next, we have “Bitcoin For Dummies,” a rather slow, uneventful episode.
  • In the end, there was no sole creator — turned out it was Stack and two others created Bitcoin, something the rascally Kalinda figured out much to the surprise of the three Mr. Bitcoins.
  • From her parking garage exchange with Will to the looks of concern and longing for friendship towards Alicia, there were so many great Kalinda moments.
  • The meeting between Elsbeth, Will and Kalinda was hilarious — thanks to Elsbeth — but very worrisome for Will.

Jason Biggs guest-starred as Dylan Stack, the lawyer of the creator of Bitcoin, an online currency the Treasury Department had in its sights. In the end, there was no sole creator — turned out it was Stack and two others created Bitcoin, something the rascally Kalinda figured out much to the surprise of the three Mr. Bitcoins. It seemed like “The Good Wife” was giving viewers an overly complicated case just because it could. Last week’s very simple, straight-forward episode was an elegant work of art, especially when compared to this week’s sluggish offering. However, there were some highlights this week.

Kalinda’s sad puppy eyes were out in full force. From her parking garage exchange with Will to the looks of concern and longing for friendship towards Alicia, there were so many great Kalinda moments. As Kalinda and Will spoke, it was like she was passing the vulnerability torch. Season 2 was her year and now, we’re getting to see the underside of Will in Season 3. Thankfully, he hired Elsbeth Tascioni, who may be the world’s flightiest and most lovable fictional attorney to ever grace TV screens. As Elsbeth, Carrie Preston continues to outshine almost every actor on this show. The meeting between Elsbeth, Will and Kalinda was hilarious — thanks to Elsbeth — but very worrisome for Will. Did Kalinda get rid of anything from the file before handing it over to Dana to save Alicia from the mess? I guess we’ll find out in two weeks. Plus, the look Kalinda and Alicia shared after Kalinda testified was enough to make me flail a tiny bit. Just a bit.
