The Good Fight season 6 episode 4 recap & review: The End of Eli Gold

The fourth episode of The Good Fight sees Marissa defending her father Eli, while Liz connects with Ri’Chard over a drink. The episode is now available to stream on Paramount+.


Diane and Dr. Bettencourt barely survive a car bomb near Bettencourt’s office. The impact of the car bomb is noted all over the area.

The hearing of Eli Gold’s case continues with Marissa joining her father’s defense team. Eli, who is indicted for fraud, continues to dodge every question thrown at him until he sees a witness in the form of Frank Landau.

Eli signals Marissa, who asks for a short recess, as they need to strategize how they will counter Frank turning on them.

Back at Reddick & Associates, Ri’Chard starts taking over the place by promising things the firm can’t deliver. Liz doesn’t understand what Ri’Chard wants and asks Jay to investigate and find out more about his background.

Marissa demands to cross-examine Landau, but during the court session, she is accused of joining the defense team so that Eli could prevent her from testifying.

After all, Eli did get help from Marissa to access a security system.

Later, at the Democratic fundraiser, Eli tries to confront Landau to question why he turned on him. During their argument, an unknown man around them pointed a gun at Landau and shot him, believing Landau is actually Eli Gold, a Jew.

Eli started believing he is the reason Landau lost his life and was ready to give up, but Marissa comforted him. Eli was afraid someone is soon coming to kill him.

Back in the courtroom, Marissa had no option but to leave Gold’s defense team and testify against Eli. Before she could do that, she took some advice from Liz, while Eli did the same by joining Diane for a drink.

Diane’s words to continue the good fight encouraged both, Eli and Marissa. Marissa admitted in court that Landau saw her helping her father with new technology and had jumped to the wrong conclusion.

Amidst all of this, Liz and Ri’Chard, who were butting heads with each other, decided to ditch the Democratic fundraiser to spend an evening together.

Liz joined Ri’Chard in his very own happening house and learned a lot about him.

Ri’Chard told her how a partner at his dream firm once insulted him because of his cheap clothes and didn’t hire him just because of that. Liz and Ri’Chard connected emotionally, and she pushed his ideas at the firm.

After doing a background check on Ri’Chard, Jay told Liz that the partner who insulted Ri’Chard is none other than her father. Liz and Jay began doubting that Ri’Chard has some secret agenda working here.

Meanwhile, Liz continued her PT-108 treatment and started getting obsessed with Dr. Bettencourt.


  • The fourth episode of The Good Fight had a lot of emotions running through it.
  • Eli Gold’s sarcasm was a delightful way to start the episode after that car bomb incident. Furthermore, it was quite intriguing to see Gold lose his fighting spirit, especially because whenever he is in the frame, he has such strong energy around him.
  • The show finally addresses the importance of Ri’Chard’s addition. So far, he was just there in the show, with no proper motive until Liz realized he is here with some secret vendetta.
  • At the same time, it’s crazy how Ri’Chard and Liz’s relationship continues to fluctuate. In the last episode, they did well together, but now they are suddenly against each other.
