Pants on Fire is the twentieth episode of Season 3.

SynopsisEdit

Alicia defends a young client, Lindsey, whose conviction was vacated due to DNA evidence. She and two other girls had been convicted of luring another girl into the woods at a summer camp and killing her. Rather than have to deal with a new trial, Peter Florrick tells Cary Agos to make them a plea offer but Lindsey and her two co-accused must all accept the offer or it's off the table. They also have to waive their right to sue the State crime lab for their errors. Alicia asks Kalinda to look into the evidence.

Alicia's successful stint on the blue-ribbon panel backfires when the report blames Peter for the cover-up in the case. The panel's chair, Mike Kresteva also announces his bid for the Governor's Office. As a result Peter is thinking of not running.

Alicia learns that her mother-in-law is the one who bought her old house from under her. Peter sets his mother straight on the issue.
