Complications to Come on The Good Wife

by at . Comments

Alicia Florrick is a yet-to-be-divorced mother of two who just slept with her boss. How will this impact her life on season three of The Good Wife? In a convoluted manner, co-creator Robert King tells TV Line.

"Most of Alicia’s life doesn’t get easier, it gets more complicated," he said in a preview of the third season premiere.

Will They or Won't They?

As for Lisa Edelstein, yes, she will portray a woman from Will's professional past and, yes, his embezzlement secret will play a key role in what's ahead on this Emmy-nominated drama.

Two other storylines will also be featured prominently:

  1.  Christine Baranski will receive more air time. Says King: "Diane is trying to figure out what is the next step in her life, and that will force a lot of issues at the law firm.”
  2. With Eli working out of the firm, there will be a "new, [fun] version" of his relationship with Alicia. Teases King: "How is it different now that it's not Alicia more in the power seat, now that it's more equal between [them]?"

The Good Wife moves to Sundays this fall and premieres on September 25.

As much as i enjoy watching alicia being happy after all those difficult times, I think alicia should confront the situation to her kids. stop playing the kids and talk with them or at least stop acting like a victim . I know their marriage didnt work but peter isnt the only one to blame .. At first , peter was being a jerk but if she decided to stay by her hubby , she gotta at least give peter a second chance after things cool off for the kid's sake but no.. in fact she was liking to be called the good wife but in her mind , all she thinks about is will while their kids are thinking their mom was the victim and hurt by their dad .. well , i dont like the idea of alicia being seen as the victim anymore.. such a shame for their marriage after those difficult times!!! Well, peter cheated (i get that he's a jerk) but alicia knowing did it to hurt peter and to be with will and broke the marriage easily .. at least peter's not sleeping around anymore but she is...
so she doesnt get to be a good parent anymore .. at least peter changed for the kid's sake..

First off Kalinde should have said something way back in the begginning and not wait till she was BFF with Alicia. Why was she so worried about Alicia "finding out".
I still think there is more to this than we are seeing or hearing that will open a manhole of problems.

Reality calling.... When Kalinda met with Peter at the campaign headquarters, Peter said, "It was just one night!" That sure doesn't sound like he meant they were just playing chess while he got her a name change! It was obvious that he was cheating on Alicia while he was married to her -- like he had done so many times before. Why was he so worried about Alicia "finding out", if he had done nothing wrong?

If you think it will be with the sleazy rat she married, you're living in a hopeless delusion.
No this is coming from a straight person not a closed minded one.
There won't be anymore Will after this 3rd season, and the truth comes out about what really happened with Kalinda being let go from the SA office job with a name change.

It's not "yesterday stuff" when he's still the same guy. He hasn't changed a bit. Alicia struggled to forgive him, and only did after he swore to her that Amber had been the "only" one. Now that she knows he lied to her and there was at LEAST one other, she kicked the bum out. Good riddance, too. "Alicia in the end will be happy and it won't be with Will~!!!" If you think it will be with the sleazy rat she married, you're living in a hopeless delusion.

John; STILL did it with Amber EIGHTEEN times, when the 'F' are you going to get off this yesterday stuff that Alicia knows and has forgiven him for that so drop it !!!
Maybe down the line you can forgive the person who cheated on you and stop looking for revenge at every turn.
Alicia in the end will be happy and it won't be with Will~!!!

Avatar

You've got to be kidding. Even if it does turn out that Peter didn't cheat on Alicia with Kalinda, he STILL did it with Amber EIGHTEEN times, as he himself testified under oath in court. And you think that makes him a "keeper"??? Maybe YOU'd be okay with that, if it was your husband spending thousands of dollars of your family's money, out shtupping whores, while you waited faithfully at home, but any woman with any self-respect would kick the bum out -- like Alicia just did. A lot of women really need to ask themselves why they keep choosing jerks who lie to and treat them like CRAP, over and over. You really must believe you don't deserve any better than that. Well, I think Alicia DOES -- and I'm glad to see she does too!

I'M PUTTING MY MONEY ON PETER, THERE IS SOMETHING TO THE KALINDE STORY THAT DOESN'T MAKE SENSE. WHY WAS SHE LET GO FROM THE S.A.OFFICE JOB WITH A NAME CHANGE ? I THINK IT HAD NOTHING TO DO WITH SEX BUT A COVERUP ABOUT LIA PERSONEL LIFE IN CANADA AND HER HUSBAND WHO SUDDENLY DIED.

Peter openly LIED to Alicia when she asked about other women, because he just wanted to get her back at his side for his political campaign. He took no time at all to "work on his marriage", he just went right back to his own ambitions, even though his wife and kids didn't want him to. He doesn't care about them, only himself. That lie was the last straw for Alicia. He had sworn to her that Amber was the only one ("only" -- but EIGHTEEN DIFFERENT TIMES!!), so Alicia was trying to forgive him and carry on with the marriage. THEN she discovered that he had boinked Kalinda, too, which she found out after K. had become her best and only friend. You can never again trust someone who lies to you. It's PETER who destroyed their marriage, because "little Peter" just couldn't ever manage to stay in his pants, even while his "good wife" was waiting faithfully for him at home. He's sorry he was caught, not sorry he did it. He has only himself to blame, now that Alicia has kicked the bum out. It's time for her to move on. Peter is history.
