Critic Reviews for The Good Wife: Season 4

All Critics (17) | Top Critics (8)

The mark of a great season finale is one that makes you look as fondly as possible on the season that just ended even as it's exciting you about what's coming next. "What's in the Box?" did both those things.

The dramatic spotlight was directed towards more interesting places, including machinations at Alicia's firm and her combustible chemistry with Peter.
