Four more episodes before Alicia Florrick’s (Julianna Marguilies) story ends as “The Good Wife” finally takes a bow after seven dramatic seasons.
The political legal drama is currently on short hiatus after airing “Unmanned” where Alicia’s presumably past and future came face-to-face in a very awkward situation. Peter (Chris Noth) bumping into Jason (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) in Alicia’s house for the first time prompted the lawyer to finally ask her husband for a divorce. Despite not rejecting Alicia’s request, he appealed to her to hold off the proceedings just after his trial ends.
While all roads seemingly lead to the two separating ways in the end, Noth believes that there is a chance for them to patch things up and get back together.
“I wouldn’t be surprised if they stay together,” Noth told The Hollywood Reporter.
“Their personal lives are so intertwined, their work lives and his political life, that there’s almost no boundaries. Because they know each other so well, because they’ve been together so long and been through so much, when it gets bad, it gets really bad,” he added.
Peter’s infidelity and betrayal over the years were the springboards of Alicia’s success as she started to embark on her own journey and learn that she can make it alone.
The actor, who first came to prominence via his stint in the police procedural “Law & Order,” added that although his character and Alicia have continued to hurt each other, their shared history is what makes their bind sturdier.
“There’s a lot of scars but that binds them even closer in a strange way. I wouldn’t be surprised if they stay together. I don’t know if they will. But their intimacy goes so far, they know each other so well that when there’s a fight, they just let it out,” Noth explained.
The two continued to play the ideal couple in front of the public despite being separated privately for most part of the series. While they never signed any legal documents making their separation official, they had their own respective flings all throughout the series.
Meanwhile, the show will return on April 17 with the episode titled “Landing.” Fans can expect to see Alicia and Lucca (Cush Jumbo) travelling to Toronto to deal with NSA Agent Jeff Delinger’s (Zach Woods) case as he was detained by the customs office on his way back to the United States.
