Last season on “The Good Wife” we were left with Cary (Matt Czuchry) standing at Alicia’s door, foreshadowing her transfer to his new firm in Season 5. Her departure from Lockhart & Gardner should provide the right amount of drama heading into the fall. Here is my Season 5 wish list for “The Good Wife”:
No. 1—Lockhart & Gardner vs. whatever Kerry’s firm is called
The first case where the two firms battle each other in court will definitely be dramatic. It would be even better if Alicia (Julianna Margulies) and Will (Josh Charles) faceoff because, as we can expect, things will likely get personal. Let’s hope we don’t have to wait too long for a Lockhart & Gardner/Fourth-Years’ Firm faceoff.
No. 2—Let’s do better this time Gov. Florrick
Peter (Chris Noth) has finally gotten a second chance with his wife and he better not blow it. According to EOnline, Juliana Margulies said earlier this summer that she didn’t want to see Alicia and Will start up their affair again and personally, I agree. It was time for that to end. Hopefully Peter can be a good husband and flourish this time. Also, it wouldn’t be shocking if someone attempts to attack Peter on the political front. It would be good if, like last season, he can come out ahead in his career and his marriage.
No. 3—The return of Michael J. Fox.
Michael J. Fox has his own show now but maybe he could make an appearance on “The Good Wife” in an episode or two. His character Louis Canning's dynamic with Alicia is fun to watch and at times comical. Is it possible their relationship could change if Alicia leaves Lockhart & Gardner? It would be interesting to find out.
Season 5 of the Good Wife premieres Sunday, Sept. 29 at 9/8c on CBS.
