Elsbeth Tascioni is easily my favorite non-regular recurring character on The Good Wife. So I was thrilled when the quirky litigator (played by the brilliant Carrie Preston) made her season 4 debut. And based on the episode's conclusion, it looks like we'll be getting a lot more Elsbeth in the future — but more on that later.
Alicia received a call from Elsbeth early in the morning. The call interrupted Alicia's breakfast with Zach and Grace — not to mention some, ahem, sexy daydreams. Elsbeth had managed to get herself arrested, and she needed Alicia's help handling a contract enforcement arbitration. Erobos, a shoe company, had reneged on her client Anna's endorsement deal.
Elsbeth tried to question Simon Fassel, the CEO of Erobos, following a speech he made, but Simon had her arrested for harassment. Since she was unable to attend the arbitration meeting -- you know, since she was in jail and all -- she sought out Alicia's help. Unfortunately, Elsbeth was in a Skokie jail on a Friday. If she didn't get a bond hearing that day, she'd be stuck in the suburbs for the weekend. So while Alicia tried to get her transferred out of Skokie, Will had to step in for the contract negotiations.
