THE GOOD WIFE

Sea­son 5 Mon­days M-Net 20:30 (episodes 13 & 14) Af­ter 13 years away from work, per­fect po­lit­i­cal wife Ali­cia Flor­rick (Ju­lianna Mar­gulies) was forced to re­turn to the of­fice as a lawyer af­ter her hus­band Peter (Chris Noth) was jailed due to a sex and cor­rup­tion scan­dal. Ali­cia’s old law school buddy (and crush) Will (Josh Charles) pulled strings to get her a job at his firm Stern, Lock­hart & Gard­ner (LG).

Five things you must know:

Peter and Will have both been court­ing Ali­cia (Peter and Ali­cia are es­tranged). He’s also the Gover­nor Of Chicago now and as of the start of the sea­son on 19 May, is in the lead. In episode 5 (on 16 June) Will threw a bit­ter hissy­fit tantrum when he found out that Ali­cia was de­fect­ing from LG to start her own firm Florick/ Agos (FA) with for­mer LG lawyer Cary Agos (Matt Czuchry). The LG and FA split has di­vided clients and cases left and right, so there are still enor­mous con­flicts of in­ter­est and cases where Ali­cia is forced to work with Will and her ex­boss Diane (Chris­tine Baran­ski). LG and FA are mostly on the side of the an­gels, but their books in­clude some truly dan­ger­ous clients like king­pin Lemond Bishop (Mike Colter). A shock­ing death for one of the lead char­ac­ters will ar­rive in episode 15 (25 Au­gust). But that’s also when we see Matthew Goode (in 2009 movie Watch­men) joins as good guy lawyer Finn Pol­mar.
