In this golden age of American TV, the stories it tells help us navigate the bigger picture – all the more so when the news cycle itself, pushes the viewer from episode to episode, cliffhanger to cliffhanger, twist to revelation and back. The fourth season of The Good Fight says a lot about the current state of the States. If Epstein, Trump, and cops killing with impunity offer real-world examples of the link between power and corruption, the tribulations of the lawyer Diane Lockhart offer a parable of its mechanisms, and what happens when you try to defy them.

" The Good Fight finally gets to the bottom of our collective misery. At the top, the rules don’t apply."
