"What Went Wrong" is the eleventh episode of the third season of The Good Wife and the fifty-seventh episode overall. The teleplay was by Robert King & Michelle King. The story was by Keith Eisner. It was directed by James Whitmore, Jr.


The firm goes all out when a client is surprisingly found guilty of first degree murder. They have a sympathetic judge and even ASA Cary Agos was concerned that the prosecution hasn't made their case. The accused refused a deal, not prepared to plead guilty to something she didn't do. Now that the verdict has been delivered, they look for evidence of jury misconduct or anything that might get the judge to direct a verdict of not guilty.

It doesn't get easier when Special Prosecutor Wendy Scott-Carr questions the judge in the Will Gardner investigation. She also has something interesting to say to Will.
