While the murders shake the lawyers, Diane finds herself battling the new partner at the firm, Liz Reddick-Lawrence, played by Audra McDonald. Maia (Rose Leslie) finds herself stuck in the middle of the financial scandal perpetrated by her parents, and possibly thrown under the bus by her girlfriend, and Lucca (Cush Jumbo) is brought back into Colin’s (Justin Bartha) orbit.
Oh, and Howard Lyman (Jerry Adler) is somehow a judge! Diane says it best: “Oh dear god.”
Other guest stars this season include Carrie Preston, Bernadette Peters, Paul Guilfoyle, Jane Lynch, Rob Reiner, Gary Cole and Tim Matheson. Yes, that is Diane Lockhart getting out of a bed with Matheson’s character still in it!
