The Good Wife is one of the few shows that continues to surprise and delight with delicious twists and turns. I have watched the show from the beginning and now that it is in its fifth season — just when you think you’ve seen it all, this coming episode on Sunday, October 27th, brings another explosive plot twist.
Alicia Florrick (played by Julianna Margulies) has decided it is time to leave her current position in the firm Lockhart Gardner and start a new firm for herself. When to do it is another question and when to tell firm partner Will Gardner is even more complicated. This coming episode will show what happens when you-know-what hits the fan and Will learns of Alicia’s plans to leave him high and dry.
Alicia is about to make one of the biggest moves of her life and go out on her own. I say – “DO IT!” I am totally on Team Florrick Agos, which means I would love to see Alicia team up with Cary Agos to start their own business. Cary is young and excited and eager to make new things happen. Will is old news and Alicia’s old fling. It’s over, dude. Get used to it. Alicia is back with her husband and ready to get out of a very toxic environment.
THE GOOD WIFE stars Emmy and Golden Globe Award winner Julianna Margulies as Alicia Florrick, a wife and mother who reinvents her life following her husband’s sex and political corruption scandal. Four years into her tenure at the law firm of Lockhart/Gardner, Alicia accepts a prestigious partner offer from her bosses, Diane Lockhart, Will Gardner and David Lee. However, a mutual attraction with Will leaves Alicia conflicted after she agrees to renew her vows with her husband, Peter, who has won the gubernatorial election with the help of campaign manager Eli Gold. After much thought, Alicia agrees to leave Lockhart/Gardner to start a new firm with her colleague, Cary Agos, who is unable to convince investigator Kalinda Sharma to join them. Now, Alicia must find a way to balance her evolving career, her new position as First Lady of Illinois and her roles as a wife and mother to her teenage children, Zach and Grace. Emboldened by the prospect of taking control of her future, Alicia bravely ventures into unknown territory.
