The Good Wife Season 5 Spoilers: What Will Happen Next? (+Trailer, Photos)

The Good Wife season 5 is set to restart soon, with episode 13 slated for March 9.

Ever since the midseason break started on January 12, lots of spoilers have been coming out.

Let’s check out what we know so far:

-Eli is going to work hard to try and keep Peter on the straight and narrow. “The problem Eli has is he knows Alicia is a benefit, but he also knows that Peter is most willing to break rules when it’s about his family,” executive producer Robert King told TVGuide. “That’s this delicate dance for Eli: How much can he guide him towards Alicia’s ideas and how much away from Alicia’s ideas?”

-Peter making the scandal go away might look something like what Chris Christie is dealing with. It’s all about Chris Christie. It’s so much about people in charge trying to deflect things on their underlings,” King said. “When investigators follow things, do they follow the smoking gun or where the money goes? Does it always go up higher and higher? Peter’s in a lot of trouble, actually.”

-Meanwhile, the Alicia vs Will courtroom showdowns are going to change. The bottom line is how are they going to find something they can live with each other about,” King said. Michelle King added: “It isn’t like we’re never going to play that again. We’re going to find different ways to go at the issue.”

-Also, Kalinda’s story is set to start getting big. “Kalinda was a little bit adrift in the first half of the year,” King said during the Television Critics Association winter press tour. “Her story starts crystallizing in the back half of the year.”

-Further, Kalinda and Cary may get together, King said.

Cast Changes

-John Leguizamo will play the Cook County State’s Attorney who took over the role from Peter Florrick when Florrick became governor, reported E! Online. The new character is described as a well-liked leader who is the son of blue-collar activist parents and who is intent on making the office fair for everybody. He’s only booked for one episode so far. 

-Michael J. Fox will reprise his role as Alicia’s legal nemesis Louis Canning for multiple episodes, reported TVLine. The role renewal appears possible because The Michael J. Fox Show was canceled.

-New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio appears in an episode, reported the New York Post. He’ll play himself, as did former mayor Michael Bloomberg.
