After receiving a critical peer review from new partner Derrick Bond, Alicia is saddled with the DUI case of teen star Sloan Burchfield, who ran her Escalade into a pole after a night of underage drinking. While Alicia is able to convince the judge of Sloan's innocence in this matter, D.A. Cary drops a bombshell before the case is closed: Yasmine Morgan, another club-goer from that night, is accusing her of attempted murder.
Alicia is able to make a convincing case for Sloan's innocence, but the pop star's rebellious antics and off-color tweeting don't play well with the judge. But before the verdict, Alicia discovers the truth: Sloan's little sister, Milla, was driving the car that night. In the end, Milla confesses and Sloan goes free.
Meanwhile, the heat is on at LGB as Diane drives a wedge between Bond and the very successful but independent firm litigator David Lee.
The Florrick campaign also seems to have hit a snag when the Democratic Committee tells Peter to drop out of the race, offering him the leadership of the party in return. Peter considers the offer, but decides to stay in the race after having a heart-to-heart talk with Alicia. While the race will be harder without the machine's support, he goes get the very helpful endorsement of Pastor Isaiah.
