After Peter defeated Wendy Scott-Carr (Anika Noni Rose) in the election she was MIA from "The Good Wife" for a while. She's back, and she's even switched sides. Wendy works for the State's Attorney. That would be Peter Florrick, her ex political opponent. She's taken up his cause against Will Gardner, and one thing is clear. Wendy learned an underhanded thing or two from her election defeat, but there are a few other things she needs to know before she gets into trouble.
Never mess with a man's basketball game
Peter's case against Will Gardner was circumstantial at best. His working theory: Will played basketball with judges. L&G won lots of cases, therefore Will must have bribed them. When Wendy took over, she accepted his lame premise at face value. Now the case has taken on a life of its own. When Wendy flexed her credentials on the basketball court, Will's judge friends never came back. Now he has to shoot baskets all by himself, and you just don't do that to a man. Wendy had better watch out.
Leave the girlfriend/spouse alone
Did flaming passion burn a hole in Alicia's due diligence? Had "The Good Wife" been paying attention, David Lee couldn't have conned her into back-dating her signature on an important document. It saved the firm millions but made the plaintiff's attorney angry enough to mail a copy to Wendy Scott-Carr. Her assistant, Dana told Kalinda that Alicia's fraud could get her permanently disbarred unless she gives up the dirt on Will. (Payback is complicated.) Wendy may not have known Alicia was Will's part time lover, but doesn't she realize she's barking up her boss's family tree? That no-no could bring her down instead of Will.
Never try to extort information from Kalinda
Kalinda is L&G's hot and talented in-house investigator. She's been known to tackle a car with a baseball bat or punch a guy in the gut. She's also Will Gardner's friend and not the person Wendy should look to for help. Still Wendy ordered Dana to score evidence from Kalinda. Dana believes she owes her for past favors and that she can manipulate her with a bisexual vibe. They really don't know Kalinda at all, do they?
Don't underestimate Elizabeth Tasconi
Will's attorney, Elizabeth Tasconi, comes off like a ditz, but she's really dumb like a fox. She's already used distractions, small talk and a freezing office to get information out of Cary and Wendy. Elizabeth throws people off guard with her annoying ways, then she goes in for the kill. She did it for Alicia's Treasury case. Now that she's representing Will, Wendy Scott-Carr doesn't stand a chance.Don't back-stab the boss
Squeaky clean Wendy Scott-Carr had to concede the State's Attorney spot to ex-con Peter. But has she forgiven or forgotten? Of course not. She's playing the loyal State's Attorney assistant hoping to find the inside track to bringing Peter Florrick down.
Peter hasn't a clue. Not yet anyway. He thinks everyone is playing his game. Now that he's got Wendy doing his dirty work, he's made it easy for her to stab him in the back. But will she be successful? Probably not. Will Gardner, Kalinda, Alicia, Elizabeth and a team of basketball-deprived judges will take Wendy down first.
