This is as much time as network TV has ever devoted to a rap battle, and it’s one of the most watchable scenes of the season, even if I have no idea how half of it even worked (like how the crowd knew what to say when Hakeem held out the mic to them; did he pass out lyrics sheets?).
Fug File: Fug The Show
They could have titled this episode, “Boy, it’s taking a while to get used to Scarlett’s haircut.”
There are SO MANY Asher Faces this week, y’all. If this show ever gets cancelled, someone needs to make him an album. Or a video montage.
Also, I am crazy, and there is apparently one more episode before the hiatus. So we’re still powering ahead to all the bigger reveals.
Well, it happened: Scarlett cut her hair. And not just a trim. She turned it up to ELEVEN. It was driven by Clare Bowen’s desire to reach out to kids with cancer — she herself had it as young as age four – who, as she did, feel self-conscious or anxious about losing their hair; she said she did it to prove to them that hair is not “what makes a princess, or a warrior, or a superhero.” What a lovely and big-hearted thing to do. I personally fall into the trap all the time of attaching too much vanity to what my hair is doing, or isn’t doing. Thank you, Clare, for the reminder that what really counts isn’t coming out of our follicles.
Her Instagram has a better shot than I got from the episode:

i’m just going to start with Jeffrey Dean Morgan, because that’s what we’re all here for, right? HOWEVER: He just got cast in The Walking Dead. Now, the finale for that show’s current season is shooting right now, which means he ought to be available to The Good Wife for the remainder of this run. But if he’s due on TWD in season seven… either The Good Wife is ending after this season (the rumor), or The Good Wife isn’t planning on keeping him beyond the May finale. I am not sure I can continue with a revolving door of guys with whom Alicia has sexual chemistry that she totally ignores.
We are now four days away from catching up to Present Times, which means the next episode — which I believe is the fall finale — is going to be chock full of panicked whispers and blood.
I think we’re in the middle of a real, prolonged sophomore slump.
