Season 1, Episode 21
A Navy destroyer steams toward disaster in the waters off North Korea. While on a layover in Okinawa, Harm reunites with his former partner, Lt. Kate Pike, to explore the mysterious murder of Lt. Mason, a computer weapons specialist. On a helicopter flight to Mason's destroyer, Kate and Harm meet Mason's replacement, Lt. Commander Gino Campisano. Like Mason, Gino is one of only two experts in the use of Ares, a cutting-edge navigation and weapons system. To Kate's chagrin, her ex-lover, Commander Dennis Brockman, is also working on the case. As she later confides to Harm, their relationship ended badly when Kate rebuffed Brockman's marriage proposal. During war games in the Sea of Japan, the Ares software program suddenly takes over the destroyer's weapons system and shoots down an approaching Navy jet, whose pilots eject to safety. Minutes later, the crew discovers Ares is also overriding all communication and navigation controls. Harm narrowly manages to rescue Meg, whose helicopter must skim the water to avoid being shot out of the sky. Meg quickly determines that someone has programmed Ares to take over the destroyer, sail it toward a North Korean port, and destroy any U.S. jets attempting to stop it. Clearly, the North Koreans plan to seize the ship and its top-secret hardware. As the captain prepares to scuttle the boat rather than surrender, Harm and Meg realize Gino is a double agent who murdered Mason so he could come aboard and re-program Ares. When he's found out, Gino takes Brockman hostage, but Harm fatally shoots him and Brockman is released. Harm finds a computer disk in Gino's pocket, which allows Meg to get Ares back online and turn the ship around before the North Koreans can board it.

Ask Matt: Good Wife, Sleepy Hollow, Spinoffs, S.H.I.E.L.D., Chicago Fire

Question: Last Sunday's "Hitting the Fan" episode of The Good Wife lived up to the hype. It was a game changer, but I guess it left me feeling slimed. Alicia has always taken a righteous position and walked a fine ethical line. On Sunday, I feel like she fell off a cliff — not only was she a party to trying to download files which I'm not sure is illegal but certainly not ethical (notwithstanding the ends-justify-the-means argument), but she also seemed gleeful about Peter using his political position to her gain. As Will seemed so right to point out, she seems to have no idea how bad she has become. This is not the good wife that I have been watching. What were your thoughts? — Megan

Hoping to Duplicate Success, Networks Turn to More Spinoffs

It's one of the oldest adages in Hollywood: If at first you do succeed, try and try again... to replicate that hit. Just as the movie business remains entrenched in sequel mania (Scary Movie 5, anyone?), almost every broadcast network has a spinoff of a popular series in the works for next season.

ABC is looking to expand its Once Upon A Time universe with the Alice-centric Once: Wonderland. The CW is building The Originals around The Vampire Diaries baddie Klaus (Joseph Morgan). NBC will explore Chicago law enforcement in producer Dick Wolf's untitled Chicago Fire offshoot. read more

Premise: A popular military drama about cases tried by Judge Advocate General (JAG) lawyers is not strictly courtroom-bound as its stars often take to the field to investigate. The series premiered on NBC in September 1995, but its audience built steadily after it moved to CBS in January 1997, a move that executive producer Donald P. Bellisario says allowed for 'more mix of courtroom [and] personal stories.' The series spun off 'NCIS.'
