Martha Plimpton, who has recurred as cunning rival lawyer Patti Nyholm since Season 1 of The Good Wife, is set to reprise her role for the Season 4 finale, TVGuide.com has learned.
The Raising Hope star will be joined by another fan-favorite recurring player on the legal drama — Denis O'Hare, who will take the bench again as the honorable Judge Abernathy. O'Hare, who has also recurred since the first season, tweeted a picture with Plimpton from the set on Friday.
TV characters more adorable than New Girl's Jess
Plimpton's return marks her first time back on The Good Wife since she won the Emmy for Best Guest Actress in a Drama Series in September. She took home the award for her performance in the Season 3 finale, in which her character, Patti, and Michael J. Fox's Louis Canning teamed up to try to take over Lockhart/Gardner.
No word yet on what kind of case Patti will be fighting the firm on, but it will no doubt be a doozy.
