The Good Fight season 6 episode 3 recap & review: The End of Football

The third episode of The Good Fight season 6 sees Moyo going up against her own client to defend another one of hers, while Liz and Ri’Chard work together. The episode is now streaming on Paramount+.


Carmen Moyo joins Charles Lester for Ben-Baruch’s crypto prom. During the prom, an undercover cop arrests Charles for the murder of Gal Avivi.

Carmen later meets Lester, and suggests to him a number of good criminal lawyers who can help him, but Charles wanted her. Carmen can’t represent Charles and Ben-Baruch at the same time as they are both criminals who work together.

Later that night, Ben-Baruch pays Moyo a visit and asks her to represent Charles. The only thing she needs to do is purposefully lose the case.

Professor Callas, who taught Moyo during her time in Legal Procedure 101, confronts her.

He is the prosecutor for Charles’ case, and he also has a strong piece of evidence in the form of CCTV footage. The video shows Charles leaving the crime scene right after the murder, according to the time stamp provided.

Charles, on his side, stated that he was taking a walk by the lake at that time, and many people may have seen him. He is sure that this is one of the rare instances where he is in fact innocent.

Moyo approaches Jay to figure out if this CCTV footage has gone through a deepfake. She believes that Ben-Baruch may have something to do with this.

Moyo shares her situation with Diane, who eventually joins her on the case. Diane proves to be a good addition. Ben-Baruch, on the other hand, was pretty disappointed.

Jay later proved that the video was part of a deep fake. Moyo knew that sooner or later Ben-Baruch would come for her, but Oscar Rivi, another criminal client of Moyo, visited the court.

Oscar Rivi warned Ben-Baruch before he could hurt Moyo. Thus, leading Ben-Baruch to take a step back while Charles wins the case.

Meanwhile, Liz and Ri’Chard represented Darren Baptiste in a lawsuit for racial discrimination. It was up against Mr. Camden, who chose a white candidate over Darren as a coach for the Chicago Crows.

After going through the case, Liz and Ri’Chard decided to go with a class action suit, but Mr. Goate, who hired them to represent Darren, wasn’t interested in it.

Through his investigation, Jay found out that Mr. Goate wants to buy the Crowes. Mr. Goate has already met the team owners and is using the case to drive down the asking price.

The case closed with an agreement between both parties. With Mr. Goate buying the Crowes, Darren will try to join them as a coach.

Amidst all of this, Diane continued with her PT-108 treatment. The next step of the same involved spending 72 hours without a computer, mobile, or the news. Marissa helped her with that.

The episode comes to a close with a bomb from the protests on the streets almost exploding into Dr. Bettencourt’s office while he was speaking to Diane.


  • The third episode takes a step up for Moyo, who is diving deep into representing the underworld. She may never know who is her client’s enemy.
  • Apart from that, the episode more or less wasted the build-up of both the cases featured in the show. The conclusions in both cases were either due to outside interference or because the client wanted something else.
  • This episode also proves that the duo of Liz and Ri’Chard could actually work, even if they are poles apart.
