Fans of The Good Wife are all too familiar with Neil Gross (played by guest star John Benjamin Hickey) and his billion dollar businesses. With the cocky tech mogul’s retainer on the line, Diane, Adrian, Barbara, Lucca, and Julius form a review board to assess and ban verbally abusive ChumHum users on an individual basis.

Their first request for appeal comes from obnoxious free speech advocate Felix Staples (guest star John Cameron Mitchell), who’s clearly using the meeting as an offline platform to push his alt-right agenda.
