The Good Fight Season 6 - Episode 5 ##HOT##

The Good Fight is an American legal drama produced for CBS's streaming service CBS All Access (later Paramount+). It was the platform's first original scripted series.[2] The series, created by Robert King, Michelle King, and Phil Alden Robinson, is a spin-off and standalone sequel to The Good Wife, which was created by the Kings. The first season premiered on February 19, 2017, with the first episode airing on CBS and the following nine episodes on CBS All Access.[2]

The Good Fight Season 6 - Episode 5


On March 15, 2017, CBS All Access renewed the show for a second season with an increased episode count of 13,[38][39] which premiered on March 4, 2018.[40] On May 2, 2018, the series was renewed for a third season.[41] In January 2019, it was announced that season 3 is set to premiere on the streaming platform on March 14, 2019.[42]

On April 23, 2019, the series was renewed for a fourth season which premiered on April 9, 2020.[43] Only 7 of the scheduled 10 episodes were fully completed before production came to a halt due to the COVID-19 pandemic.[44] On May 14, 2020, CBS All Access renewed the series for a fifth season.[45] In May 2021, it was announced that the fifth season was scheduled to premiere on June 24, 2021, on Paramount+.[46] On July 20, 2021, Paramount+ renewed the series for a sixth and final season which premiered on September 8, 2022.[3][4]

Beginning with the season 2 finale, and more prominently in season 3, episodes have increasingly featured animated music video segments written by Jonathan Coulton and produced by Head Gear Animation, that discuss subjects relevant to an episode. Coulton had been involved in the Kings' previous series BrainDead, which featured musical recaps performed by the singer. The segments have drawn comparisons to the series Schoolhouse Rock!, albeit discussing topics such as the impeachment process, non-disclosure agreements, and Russian trolls. Coulton remarked he shared the Kings' "sensibility of really liking to mess with the form itself and poke through the fourth wall a little bit", and has received a relative amount of creative freedom in regards to the content of these interludes.[47][48] However, CBS requested the removal of a segment from a season 3 episode that discussed censorship in China. The network agreed to allow the inclusion of a placard informing viewers of the removed content.[49][47]

HBO began airing all 10 episodes of the first season on June 1, 2017, in various European territories, while India's Zee Entertainment Enterprises obtained exclusive pay-TV rights to The Good Fight for its English-language general entertainment channel Zee Café, which also carried The Good Wife in India.[62]

If she had ultimately decided to fight for her name partnership on her merit alone and what she brings to the firm, as she wanted at the start of the season, that decision would have fallen firmly in a gray area.

This is the second show to use an episode title from Lost in the past couple of months, and so I look forward to seeing which show does "Ab Aeterno" soon (and, of course, look forward to seeing the conversation on Donna's coverage of this final season).

For as many balls that are thrown up in the air with this episode, I think a consistent theme is embedded in the title: Everyone has drifted off mission. Ri'Chard arrives talking about how he and Liz have common goals, but can anyone say what those goals are? This is an ostensibly Black firm that's run by white corporate suits. Clients like ChumHum and Carmen's lowlifes have the lawyers on the wrong side of every issue. Diane's progressivism has yielded regression, if anything. Perhaps this is the starting point of a season-long redemption story, but boy are they low right now. (Great episode, though. I'm feeling like it's fully back in the groove after some missteps and false starts last season.)

I hope you\u2019re still with us after this moshpit of an opening episode, in which half a dozen consequential plotlines -- many from late last season -- surge forward, sweeping us along toward the barricades whether we feel ready or not. Let\u2019s see if we can enumerate them:

The Good Fight season 6 episode 1, "The Beginning of the End""After being promoted to top partner at the firm, Liz is forced to accept Ri'Chard Lane as a new name partner brought on to help manage her staff and client load. Meanwhile, Diane experiences déjà vu as she navigates her way in her new bullpen office, downstairs with the associates."

The Good Fight season 6 episode 3, "The End of Football""Ri'Chard and Liz team up to work on a case about racial discrimination between a Black coach and an NFL team owner. Ben-Baruch returns and stirs up friction with Carmen."

The Good Fight season 6 episode 4, "The End of Eli Gold""Eli Gold's trial is underway, with Marissa Gold as part of his legal team. Liz and Ri'chard attempt to solidify their working relationships leading to a surprise discovery about Ri'chard's history and Liz's father. The firm attends a Democratic fundraiser."

The Good Fight season 6 episode 5, "The End of Ginni""Ri'Chard, Diane and Elsbeth Tascioni are hired to negotiate a 'push-nup' for a husband and wife trying to determine fair compensation for childbirth. However, a challenge is presented when the unborn fetus also gains representation in court. Marissa gets a gun after her near death experience with her father and grows wary of strangers around her."

The Good Fight season 6 episode 9, "The End of Democracy""Diane, Liz and Ri'Chard strategize with Neil Gross to help him buy out the Democratic Party. Jay brings Carmen into the Collective to help extract information from a white supremacist. Diane and Kurt battle relationship issues."

Christine Baranski's Diane Lockhart turned to late Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, played by Elaine May, for advice in the Paramount+ legal drama's latest episode, titled "And the two partners had a fight..."

ROBERT KING: And I think we ran into a real problem with this episode. It went through script, we were already in prep and it was not good. Well, just because some scripts don't turn out and others do. And we thought it would be a tough script about Diane finally having to face how to deal with it not really being appropriate for her to be a named partner at this firm.

[UPDATE: After publishing, Robert King sent the following to clarify the answer above: "We would be remiss, and we were remiss, if we didn't mention the fantastic writer, Aurin Squire, who wrote the episode. This season, he was the one who pitched the idea of a self-appointed judge who works out of the backroom of a Kinkos. When we talk about this episode originally not working, it's not because of Aurin's script. It's because the build of the episode went in a darker direction. We had originally wanted to do a sort of Scenes from a Marriage-like look at Kurt and Diane's marriage, and it was the wrong way to go (I'll take credit for that). So Aurin and the room pitched going in a new direction. And that led to the RBG addition and what follows. Thanks for letting us clarify. "]

There are 10 episodes in season six of The Good Fight. The runtime of episodes averages between 40-55 mins. You can check the complete list of The Good Fight episodes and their release date below.
