"Marthas and Caitlins" is the fifth episode of the third season of The Good Wife and the fifty-first episode overall. It was written by Ted Humphrey directed by Felix Alcala.


Lockhart/Gardner's case against an aviation company takes a huge hit when their key witness commits suicide and his testimony is ruled inadmissible. The only other person with inside knowledge of the plane's design flaw is Colin Sweeney, a venture capitalist that Alicia defended on a murder charge two years ago who has been in jail ever since. But his testimony comes with a price - his freedom. And Cary won't let him go unless he agrees to wear a wire and get a jailhouse confession from one of the most dangerous killers in the Illinois prison system. At the same time, Eli tries to get Peter the keynote address at the upcoming DNC while Alicia is told that she can take part in the hiring of a new first year associate.
