Loved them bringing in the geriatric as name partner.
As a big fan of Jerry Adler, I approve of the ploy.

You summed it up in a nutshell. Canning's ethical boundaries are different than most of ours, but they exist and he adheres to them. He respects talent like Alicia's, even when it's set against him. He's a decent family man who doesn't let his work life intrude on his home life. Kresteva is a Rod Blagojevich, only savvier -- which makes him scarier.
Louis Canning was deeply ethical in a consistent (if sometimes super-villain) sort of way. And he was fighting hard for his clients. Kresteva, we learn, is a psychopath with absolutely no concern for -- perhaps no perception of -- truth. He's frightening. And would seem to be the perfect candidate, guaranteed to win, if he doesn't get caught in a major conflict.
Jackie wants love from Peter and success for him. She views Alicia as a traitor, because her efforts to carve out her own life away from her philandering husband interfere with Peter's happiness and success. She's extremely manipulative, but it's all Peter-centric. She wants Peter back in his own home, living happily with his children. Since Alicia has proven herself unworthy of Peter, she will have to fulfill Alicia's household duties. From her perspective, all of the misfortune that has befallen Peter is Alicia's fault. If Alicia had been more satisfactory in the bedroom, Peter wouldn't have strayed. If she had stuck by Peter, his run for governor wouldn't have been at risk. In Jackie's eyes, Peter can do no wrong. And if he does do wrong, someone else must be to blame.
Jackie...I don't know what to think yet. I'm waiting to see how this plays out. Is she that out there to control Peter and damage Alicia?
I wasn't 100 percent sure, but I believe once they discovered that the one girl (the skinny black haired one) was likely guilty, they couldn't risk going to trial. Diane and the non-profit attorney browbeat the recovering addict attorney who was holding out for the big cash settlement into accepting the Alford plea. The girl we saw reunited with her family was the one of the three represented by Lockhart/Gardner, and one of the two who were likely innocent.
I didn't understand the resolution of the case. The girls had to plead guilt to get out. Carey said there was no new deal to be made, despite new evidence. Then the girls were getting out. What happened?

Loved Cary back in the fold. His dynamic with Alicia was great; all the bitterness is behind them

What an incredible example of the writing and direction of this show. I don't recognize the actor, Mike Colter, as Malcom Ward in Ringer. I like Ringer, but Lamont Bishop is such a striking character with a piercing personality that makes the character of Malcom Ward wilt like week old flowers.
That was a marvelous episode, with an interestingly consistent theme of "loyalty" throughout.

The hard, slow knock was so much creepier, though. There are two types of violent men, those who are violent by instinct and those who use violence as a means of intimidation. Kalinda's husband is latter type. He's been a hanging thread since at least season 2, and it's exciting the show's going there now. We probably learned more about the private Kalinda in tonight's episode than we have in whole seasons. Her apartment spoke volumes about how she lives, sparse and impersonal, so she can always be ready to throw her life into a suitcase at a moment's notice and move on.
Pretty rockin' season finale. I really expected the husband to come barging through that door with a quick fade to black.
It's all just business for them. For what it's worth, I think Edelstein will come to regret his decision. Lockhart/Gardner puts its clients first, and they've had a stellar success rate for him. As we've seen, Louis Canning is willing to tactically lose cases to advance his interests. If there's a conflict between Edelstein's interests and Canning's interests, I would not be surprised to see Edelstein left holding the bag.
I don't know how Patti and Louis can look at themselves in the mirror and not feel ashamed.
