When to Watch: Sunday, Sept 25 at 9 p.m. What to Expect: We've seen scenes from the season premiere, and the only phrase to describe Alicia (Julianna Margulies) returning to the firm after accepting Cary's (Matt Czuchry) offer to join his new firm is awkwardly tense. Or the calm before the storm, if you will. "The stories this season are very explosive," executive producer Marlene King said during the Summer TCA press tour. "It's more about our team. It's basically a year about civil war."
