"When we first met her ten years ago on The Good Wife, in the annals of Lockhart/Gardner, Diane was an easily aspirational figure — her grace is undeniable, her intelligence formidable, and her wardrobe enviable," says Angelica Jade Bastién. "She scanned as an example of insurmountable womanhood, someone who had figured out how to excel by navigating the rules of the world with aplomb. But what happens when the rules you live by — truth, justice, and democracy itself — cease to exist? In the third season of The Good Fight, this has proved to be the rich seam of Diane’s arc. Her character wrestles with retaining her morality and utilizing her anger in this chaotic political moment. In the process, her body language changes from her signature self-assured grace to a sharply pointed threat. And in doing so, showrunners Michelle and Robert King offer something more fulfilling than a textureless aspirational figure with easily packaged feminism, but a character struggling with how to live in a time when chaos has seeped into every sphere of her life."
