A new year and a new Good Wife. There’s nothing better. In a season full of cliffhangers the writers’ of the Good Wife have already delivered on one huge payoff. Alicia and Cary left Lockhart/Gardner to create their own firm and as bad breakups go this one is as chaotic as it gets. The firms are now in a perpetual battle for clients and wins. Tensions are high when they go after each other, so high it can be cut with a knife along with the sexual tension between Will and Alicia. As chaotic as the break up has gone so far, this period can be best described as the break up sex.
This weeks episode is promising even more courtroom action between Alicia and Will. If the previous episode was any indicator, the court battles between these two will only get more fun. It’s pretty clear who plays the role of David and Goliath, but as the title indicates, this might be more about the relationship between the two as opposed to a versus battle. Either way a cliffhanger is all but certain.
As we enter the second half of the season, let’s hope The Good Wife resolves some of the story lines they’ve set up, unless they want this to become the legal version of Lost.
