The Good Wife-- "Parallel Construction, [lady dogs]" -- (March 09, 2014)

Finally, after a two month hiatus!!!

Description:
Spoiler:
Lemond Bishop is arrested on a drug-related charge, possibly due to a leak within Alicia's firm; an agent from the office of public integrity contacts Marilyn.

Transporting 900 grams of pancake batter.

Check under the trunk.

That was an awesome scene. Great episode. The NSA snooping, Bishop being back and then the Peter investigation were all great. Nice to see Eric Bagosian and Jack Davenport as guest stars.

Kalinda whoring herself out to get info from Cary.

Superb episode. Lots of moving parts, and all fit in very well.
Great to see the guy from coupling.

Loving the NSA angle.

Spoiler:
Why weren't Will/Diane there during the later court proceedings?

Also, when Alisha discussed Lemond's delivery with Robyn and Hayden, did she not break the request of Lemond's lawyer to not discuss the matter with anyone?

wouldn't wiretapping a lawyer be a huge violation of attorney client privilege?
not that the NSA would care, they shit all over the Constitution and Amendments non-stop, but I'd think other agencies wouldn't be able to use that stuff

I thought they covered it in the episode (and named the episode after it): Parallel Construction. Basically, they're not directly using the wiretaps. But still, it's a huge advantage to know you're right about something, and specifically what you're right about.

except they are directly using the wiretaps
they wouldn't have pulled Bishop over if it hadn't been for the wiretap on Alicia's phone

Its not legal, thats why the judge dismissed the charges. Fruit of the tainted tree or something like that.

They are not going into court and saying, "Your honor, we have it on a wiretap that Mr. Bishop would be transporting drugs, and that's why we stopped him." That's a direct usage. What they're doing is getting the information, then trying to come up with some other reason for doing what they want to do. Taillight busted. 2 mph over the speed limit. Phony witness. Whatever. Parallel construction.

What do you think the title refers to?

As wearetheborg said, they ultimately failed to mask their activities well enough in regards to Mr. Bishop, and it was eventually quashed. But that still leaves the Peter/Will/etc. situation in play. The office of professional standards (who itself is violating professional standards) is getting all kinds of information they shouldn't have. Maybe it's not enough to get a conviction (since they don't want to use the information directly), but it validates their suspicions and energizes their investigation.

I like what this arc is showing. People need to think about if they're OK with these things.

I know most here don't read the sticky threads, so I thought I would mention it here. The hardcore fans deserve to know.

Rewatched the episode.

It was interesting that they cast one of the analysts as a brown dude. And that NSA is not portrayed as something evil, but as consisting of people who are just trying to do their job.
