The good wife is standing by her man once again.
Peter (Chris Noth) officially announced his run for governor of Illinois on Sunday's episode of The Good Wife, and he had a surprising weapon in his arsenal — Alicia (Julianna Margulies). The two have been estranged and keeping separate residences for the entire season, but when it mattered the most — at least politically — Alicia returned to his side. But...
You might say a love affair that kicks into high gear with a steamy embrace in an elevator is predestined to have its share of ups and downs. And sure enough, as external pressures start to close in on The Good Wife's Alicia Florrick (Julianna Margulies) and Will Gardner (Josh Charles), their clandestine courtship is in for a very bumpy ride.
After two seasons of anticipation, Willicia supporters — as opposed to those who continue rooting for a reunion of Alicia and her estranged philandering politician hubby Peter Florrick (Chris Noth) — are finally being rewarded for their patience with a passionate payoff each week. The once dutiful spouse at the center of the drama has been transformed into a woman who giggles(!) and says yes to lunchtime lust with her fellow lawyer — but there's still plenty working against the fledgling couple.
(Cue up that annoying Paula Cole song)
I don't want to wait/for our lives to be over...
(OK, that's enough.)
Would it be too embarrassing to reveal how much of a touchstone Dawson's Creek was on my own Massachusetts upbringing? Yes? It would? OK then, never mind.
Instead, let me reveal exclusively that there will be a Dawson's Creek reunion on Fringe! See which Capesider is joining Joshua Jackson after the jump.
