Picking up from the season one finale, Alicia is about to join Peter on the dais as Will calls. Eli grabs the phone and gets Alicia to take Peter's hand. Will leaves two messages: the first saying he understands they should just drop it, then the second saying that he loves her, and he's not dropping this. Eli deletes the second message. Before they have a chance to settle things, Will gets caught up in the law firm merger and has to deal with the new partner, Derrick Bond. In court, Alicia is appointed as a counselor to an accused murderer who insists on defending himself.
25 2 "Double Jeopardy" Dean Parisot Ted Humphrey October 5, 2010 (2010-10-05) 12.76[3]
Dissatisfied that Alicia wins a not guilty verdict for a young Army Reservist accused of murdering his wife, Cary has the case re-tried in military court. In military court, the rules are different and the law is presented differently stacking the decks against Alicia. But Alicia has a plan and calls Cary to the stand as a witness as a way of producing evidence which gives a break in the case and saves her client. Meanwhile as the campaign kicks into full gear, Childs resorts to dirty tricks in an effort to mar Peter's reputation.

For the first time, Lockhart, Gardner, & Bond go squarely on the offensive with prosecutors, filing a multimillion-dollar malicious prosecution suit against the S.A.'s office for ruining an innocent defendant's life. Childs is desperate to defend his department's decisions while covering himself; Diane and Will debate how to best utilize Alicia in a case against her husband's political opponent; and Kalinda and Cary go head-to-head in trying to determine the true culprit's identity. All of the maneuvering builds to one explosive conflict between Alicia and Glenn Childs that could make or break the case—and ultimately, the campaign.
27 4 "Cleaning House" Rosemary Rodriguez Robert King & Michelle King October 19, 2010 (2010-10-19) 12.17[5]
Alicia once again faces the impossibly sweet young Nancy Crozier, only this time she's her co-counsel and – supposedly – on the same side of the case. Although Alicia's prepared for her innocent-with-a-dagger routine, it was originally thought that it could work toward their common goal: defending their linked clients in a civil suit. But when Nancy proves as dangerous as the opposition, Alicia fights on two fronts and ultimately outmaneuvers her to protect her client.
28 5 "VIP Treatment" Michael Zinberg Robert King & Michelle King October 26, 2010 (2010-10-26) 12.59[6]

Will takes on the defamation case of wunderkind internet billionaire Patric Edelstein, the 25-year-old founder of Sleuth.com. Patric is suing the makers of a biopic that he claims is defaming him, and while Will knows the case will be a tough sell he also knows that he can milk this 'cash cow' for hundreds of billable hours. After meeting with Patric in the deposition, however, Will begins believing in the kid. After a talk with Honeycutt, the cynical lawyer representing the studio, Will resolves to try and win the long-shot defamation case instead of just trying to milk it for the cash. While meeting with the screenwriter, though, Will gets a better idea: challenging Patric's right to publicity. If he claims that the studio is usurping Patric's right to control his own publicity, he can get a settlement without proving the much-more-difficult defamation claims.

But when Alicia sees Patric Edelstein, (the internet billionaire from 214) in the office, she begins to suspect that the firm has an ulterior motive for taking Shen's case.
