‘The Good Wife’ season 5 spoilers: Alicia vs. Will (again); Jordana Spiro’s return

The latest -Do you miss “The Good Wife” being on the air? The good news that we have for you now is that you are not going to have to wait very long to see some more new episodes of the critically-acclaimed CBS hit. The show will return with new episodes on Sunday, January 5 following the holidays, and right away there will be a case that pits Alicia against a very familiar and formidable foe: Will. Just when you started to hope that the tension over leaving Lockhart Gardner was dying down, a situation like the one that we’re about to describe comes into play.

During the episode (entitled “Goliath and David”), Alicia’s challenge comes in that her small firm has to go against Will’s in a case, and he has all of the knowledge and the power of how to defeat her. Take a look at the official synopsis below for some more details:

“Alicia represents a band suing a TV show for copyright infringement, but the simple case becomes psychological warfare when Will joins the opposing council and uses his knowledge of Alicia’s strengths and weaknesses against her. Also, Eli hires Kalinda in an attempt to get ahead of a potential scandal.”

It is also worth noting that this episode is going to be featuring another appearance from Jordana Spiro as Kalinda’s new love interest Detective Jenna, and the recurring / guest roles do not stop there. The likes of F. Murray Abraham, Jason O’Mara, and “The Bridge’s” Matthew Lillard are also going to be appearing in some capacity during the hour, which will hopefully get the new year for the show off on the right foot, and continue some of the great things that we mentioned in our recent Midseason Report Card piece on the show.
