As with the pilot predictions, I will be predicting some things from new seasons of returning favorite shows. As a note, these are what I expect to happen, and might not follow suit. Tonight, I’ll start with the CBS drama, The Good Wife.
Where We Left Off: Peter Florrick (Chris Noth) was announcing that he will again run for State Attorney for Cook County, and as he was announcing for his wife Alicia (Julianna Margulies) to come up to the stage, she gets a phone call from Will (Josh Charles), her boss. She has to make a decision on to follow back as the wife of a shady politician or to leave with her best friend and try to make a relationship out of it.
What Probably Will Happen: Alicia will probably choose to stay with Peter, however, things will get complicated at home and work. The sexual tension between Alicia and Will will most likely grow, and her mistrust towards Peter will as well. Since Cary (Matt Czuchry) is now with the State’s Attorney’s office, Alicia will most likely to go toe to toe with him throughout the season. While the first season dealt with trust and returning to the workplace, I expect season two will deal more with distrust and trying to hold the pieces together.
The Good Wife returns to television on Tuesday, September 28th at 10:00 PM. Make sure to watch the Emmys this coming Sunday to see if the show wins for the following categories: Outstanding Drama Series, Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series for Julianna Margulies, Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series for Archie Panjabi, Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series for Christine Baranski, among others.
Let us know what you think too. Will Alicia go back to Peter? Will she choose Will? What are you looking forward to this season?
