The Good Fight season 6 episode 7 recap & review: The End of STR Laurie

The Good Fight season 6 episode 7 sees Reddick & Ri’Chard finding out that they have a mole in their office and that STR Laurie is laundering money. The episode is now streaming on Paramount+.

Recap

Diane stares at the construction workers cleaning the blood on her window. Marissa comes into her office to reveal that the man who fell in front of her office didn’t commit suicide.

He was hanging a banner and slipped. He also ended up killing two protesters on the street. Now the rumors are going around that he intentionally jumped.

Diane and Liz find themselves defending the president of Wilson Clayman College, Ms. Allen-Hellman, accused of not offering enough protection to the students.

A dummy bomb was found in the hallway, and all the president had to say was not to worry about it.

The students prefer a better and whiter college over Wilson Clayman, and now they want their tuition fees back as their parents are not willing to send them there.

The opposition brings in footage of a speech by the president about racism, suggesting that it triggered the protesters who are now targeting her college.

Since the school can’t afford to refund tuition, Diane advises Ms. Allen-Hellman to pursue liability insurance. The school’s insurer, Mr. Sandel, looks the other way and avoids paying. Thus, leaving Liz no option but to take them to court.

Liz and Ri’Chard later reach out to Winston and Osman to tell them that their equity partners haven’t paid for the last two weeks.

Winston and Osman confess that they are not receiving payments from some clients due to Russian sanctions over Ukraine. Now they have a date in court to argue for the funds.

Therefore, they need Liz or Ri’Chard on the team.

Ri’Chard, along with Julius, joins the case. During the hearing, Ri’Chard discovers that STR Laurie is laundering money through Israel.

Meanwhile, Jay pays a visit to The Collective’s office and is impressed with the way they are training people. He learns about a few white supremacist groups.

In some of the photos of these groups, he spots a woman and believes that he recognizes her from somewhere. Going around in the office results in him discovering that she works here only at Reddick & Ri’Chard.

Everyone at Reddick & Ri’Chard, except for Moyo, come together in the office for a secret meeting to discuss this money laundering case and if this woman, Susan Tremont, is from a white supremacist group or not.

Ri’Chard is assuming that STR Laurie is laundering money with the help of Moyo’s client, Ben-Baruch. For Tremont, they need to confirm that she is in fact from a white supremacist group.

Marissa spends a night drinking with Tremont, and Jay later follows her to discover that she is actually from the FBI.

Ri’Chard and Liz, on the other hand, confront Moyo, and she confesses that Mr. Osman came to her wanting to connect with Ben-Baruch.

They ask her to keep Tremont busy with other work. Diane asks Moyo to assign her the filing of the union case from last year.

Ri’Chard, Liz, and Diane plan to protect Reddick & Ri’Chard. They confront the FBI and question them about pursuing STR Laurie.

They allow them to go ahead with it but also let them know that they are ready to expose their unconstitutional search and seizure in the warehouse union investigation.

They bring evidence in the form of photos featuring Susan Tremont arranging the union case files.

The FBI, as expected, comes raiding the office of Reddick & Ri’Chard to get their hands on STR Laurie. Ri’Chard and Liz, as planned, got rid of STR Laurie and secured their law firm.

Amidst all of this, Wilson Clayman College’s insurer, Mr. Sandel, agreed to come to a settlement. After all, it will be Fox paying the money, as Diane had claimed that Ms. Allen-Hellman’s speech on racism was a response to a rant from a TV show host.

Diane learns that Dr. Lyle Bettencourt is Buddhist. She exits their last session after kissing him. The next time she meets him, he suggests that they can’t do any more sessions together.

According to him, they are both to be blamed. The fact that he also took the blame got stuck in Diane’s head as she wondered if she should receive Kurt’s call or not, who has been away from her lately.

Review

  • The episode pretty much starts off like another The Good Fight episode with a new case, but it quickly built itself up on the thought Liz and Ri’Chard had in the previous episode.
  • The story built was too good and it seemed like the matter revolving around the FBI was cut-throat.
  • The takeaway here would be Moyo, as she knew she was swimming in unknown waters but it wasn’t expected to come to her neck this way. The viewer must be expecting something more gruesome.
  • The Good Fight continues to tease a far horrifying case in each episode only to close the chapter with that being nothing, which is quite disappointing.
