Two words might turn Alicia Florrick's (Julianna Margulies) world on its head—again. Just you wait.
The Good Wife's Sunday, April 5th episode, "Loser Edit," is shocking in more ways than one. The episode is so topical right now with Indiana's religious freedom law it's almost as if Robert and Michelle King, The Good Wife's co-creators, knew this was going to happen. We won't spoil you—too much—but here's what you need to know about this potentially game-changing The Good Wife:
Diane Lockhart (Christine Baranski) defends gay marriage and she does so flawlessly. It's Diane, would she do it any other way? Memo to Indiana's Governor Mike Pence: WATCH THIS EPISODE. And for everybody else who has been struggling to understand what exactly is happening in Indiana, this will help you.
Diane is happily married to Kurt (Gary Cole), but you'll see there's something about RD (Oliver Platt) that sort of excites her. "Diane is having to find out where are the limits of her idealism, and when they run up against money what does that mean," Robert King told us in February. "And also, just as she does with Gary Cole, she finds there's a side of her that seems to want to indulge, someone who likes guns, someone who has a possibly more dangerous, frontier-like side. So obviously it's always fun with Christine Baranski to play it up because she's probably the most elegant human being on Earth and to see her kind of fighting this part of her that's drawn to guns and even to people who spout views that have nothing to do with the views she agrees with is interesting to us."
Somebody (sort of) says, "I love you." Vague, we know. Deal with it.
Kalinda's (Archie Panjabi) past misdeeds come up once again.
Tim Guinee returns as Andrew Wiley. You know, the guy who ruined Alicia and Kalinda's friendship by revealing to Alicia that Kalinda changed her name from Leela…
Alan Cumming gets more than one chance to chew up a scene, so you're in luck, Eli Gold fans!
Kalinda and Finn (Matthew Goode) have more than one scene together and will continue having some pretty serious scenes together.
The two words that could change everything happen right at the end of the episode and come about thanks to Lily Rabe's character.
The Good Wife airs Sundays, 9 p.m. on CBS.
