Fall TV Preview

Good Wife Hot Shots: Peter's in Trouble (Again)

Whether The Good Wifes Alicia decides to reunite with her husband is a mystery that will only be answered when the CBS drama returns for Season 4 on Sunday, Sept. 30 at 9/8c. But if the following sneak peek at Episode 3 is any indication, she may have good reason to stay away.

It seems the allegedly reformed State Attorney is back to his old ways. “Alicia braces herself when she learns that Peter may get caught up in a new scandal,” reads the official description.

Elsewhere, Rita Wilson’s Viola Walsh is once again on the opposite side of the courtroom from Lockhart Gardner.

  • It seems that Cary being at L&G again just means that he’ll spend season 4 being Will’s and Alicia’s third chair. Besides this I have still no idea what’s up with him in those first three episodes. O yes, he wants to have a calm spirit to him.

    • Unfortunally it’s exactly what I feared when they did bring him at L&G in that lowkey way. At SA office he was “the” antagonist, in season 2 at least. But now at L&G will they be able to turn him into a major player even with Will and Alicia around? Kings didn’t say anything about how they’ll fit Cary into L&G and I think there’s high chances that Cary will spend all the time being Alicia’s second chair or just helping on cases or babysitting Howard. And that’s not something I look forward to.

      • If you read almost every single summary for season 4 you had to conclude that it will be all about Kalinda and her husband: that’s the only thing Kings keep talking about. And why did they waste so many time with that Cary and Kalinda thing if they didn’t want to further it? It was just a waste of Cary’s character and Matt Czuchry’s time. And that season I bet he once again is doomed to be sidelined because eveyone will be too busy gushing over Kalinda’s sex life storyline to care about his “new sides” and his calm spirit.

  • Methinks thy scripts doth imitate life (and peoples’ LEGAL identities) much too much for thy scripts to be COMPLETELY fictional. Dettweiler, I never did receive the scripts to edit…talk to MarsI (NJ). Seems a little too Kassoff-ish to me to be any network other than ABC.

  • I used to love the Good Wife but mostly stopped watching when they decided to steer Alicia away from Will and toward Peter – it’s just too hard to support a female protagonist who is that stupid!

    • She never did that.

  • I never felt they tried to steer Alicia towards Peter again. I mean he is the father of her children.

    • Actually, Peter having a new scandal just means more Alicia/Peter as what happens to him directly affects her.

  • I like the realistic struggle Alicia is going through. Peter is the father of her children and the man she spent over a decade happily with, its hard to get over all of that (all the memories) especially when she has to deal with him on a constant basis.
    While I do want her to pick Will (or someone else who isn’t Peter in the end), I am enjoying the way the story is being told.

      • Agree. NO chemistry with Will!

  • I like that she is torn…it’s realistic. Peter is the father of her children….and not a horrible guy. He made bad choices. Pius they never really explored why he had the affairs with Amber Madison and Kalinda… As for Will, he comes with some drama as well…not big on commitment, some corruption in his past which is affecting his present and future–plus he’s her boss. I’m Team Alicia, she’s a smart character and I have no doubt that the writers have great twists up their sleeve for her. If she doesn’t end up with either one of them…that’s okay too.

    • Totally agree with your comments… Alicia has still not divorced Peter but the couple have never really worked on saving their marriage…would be great to see that…otherwise it seems silly that Alicia has hung on this long..Peter should make more of an effort as well.

  • It looks like season 4 will about “Again” but bigger.

  • I think Peter is a selfish azzhole!

    Alicia is MUCH MORE HAPPIER with Will, I am so disgusted the Kings never gave them a chance. Sex buddies for half a season….REALLY, after a 2 year build up. Their friendship and strong connection deserved so much more than that! If she goes back to Peter to fake a marriage just for his governership! I’m going to ABC’s Revenge!

  • I wonder what the new scandel will be??? Maybe another prostitute scandel? But I really hope that Peter and Alicia get back together!!!!!

    • How about dear old Alicia screwing around in the 700$ hotel suite with Will ! Plus does anyone remember the cell phone call that Grace overheard where Alicia told Will that back in law school he wouldn’t have last a week. Well thats about how long the affair lasted before the guilt trip set in, she knows what will happen if the kids find out.
