There were many questions that we could understand a fan of “The Good Wife” having after watching the season 6 premiere, and while the nature of Alicia Florrick’s possible campaign for State’s Attorney may not be the one that comes to mind right away, we figure that it is still important in its own right.
So would a decision to run by Julianna Margulies’ character leave her firm Florrick / Argos in a bad way, one that is possibly made worse by Cary being behind bars? Based on the information that we know right now, it does not seem like it. Speaking to TVLine, co-creator Robert King confirms that anything that happens with Alicia in politics, at least for the time being, will not cause her to leave her post behind. This is something that they studied hard in Illinois law before they even considered implementing it onto the show, just to make 100% certain that the story was accurate.
As for whether or not we feel like Alicia will end up running for the job, it feels almost inevitable at this point. She already had the blessing of Peter, the polling data is strong, and Eli thinks that she would be perfect for the job. The only challenge that really remains is getting her firm into a position where she would be comfortable devoting a time to a run, and we feel like Diane coming over will make that part of the process easier.
What do you want to see from Alicia, and do you think that a State’s Attorney run is in her cards moving forward?
