'The Good Wife' Season 5, Episode 13 Air Date; What's Next for Peter, Alicia and Will [SPOILERS]

By @jotfields on

"The Good Wife" Season 5, Episode 13 did not air Jan. 26, as the hit CBS legal drama has gone on hiatus until spring in the U.S. In the last episode, Alicia Florrick (Julianna Margulies) explodes in anger. She learns that Peter Florrick (Chris Noth) is in another scandal, and their son is involved. Will Gardner (Josh Charles), meanwhile, shows Peter the recent scandal gives him some leverage against the governor-elect.

The triangle of Peter, Alicia and Will has not moved forward in Season 5. Alicia and Peter have been doing fine together, until news of the recent scandal hit Alicia. Will is still upset with Alicia for starting her own firm with Cary Agos (Matt Czuchry). But in Episode 12, Will and Alicia are more controlled in the courtroom.

The Good Wife co-creator told TVGuide.com Alicia understands the "dirty work" in a politician's career. But she has no level of tolerance for it when her kids get involved. But in The Good Wife Season 4, Zach Florrick (Graham Phillips) got involved only when he himself decided to report a possible case of election fraud. Still, it's up to Peter and Alicia to protect the kid. In this case, Eli Gold (Alan Cumming) should prove himself useful yet again.

"That's this delicate dance for Eli: How much can he guide him towards Alicia's ideas and how much away from Alicia's ideas?" Robert King told TVGuide.

Meanwhile, much is to look forward to between Kalinda Sharma (Archie Panjabi) and Cary Agos. Spoilers say Cary will be dating Robyn Burdine (Jess Weixler) in The Good Wife Season 5. In Episode 12, however, Kalinda and Cary make another attempt at rekindling their friendship.
