Each week, "The Good Wife" keeps us rooted to our seats with fascinating, ripped-from-the-headline stories, but also the unresolved love triangle between Alicia (Julianna Margulies), her hubby Peter (Chris Noth) and her boss Will (Josh Charles).
ET's Kevin Frazier is on the set of the hit CBS drama to find out if Alicia will ever hook up with Will.
"I feel like she still has tremendous love for her husband," Julianna tells Kevin. "I think she feels if she starts anything with Will, it will throw her entire family off balance, and they are just getting back on their feet. I think right now, she is going to stay in the middle. That is not going to happen, but that is what I would do. There is no rush."
For the uninitiated, Alicia's husband Peter, formerly Chicago's state attorney, was recently released from jail, having been convicted in a very public sex and corruption scandal. After a second trial, his conviction is overturned and Peter is once again running for public office -- and Alicia has stood by her man. But while he was incarcerated, Alicia returned to work and she is empowered by her success as an attorney, not wanting to give that up now that he is free.
Julianna says that the premise of the show rings true for a lot of women, who approach her on the streets of New York where the series films, each wanting to talk about a different aspect of the character that they relate to.
"A lot is asked of us as women," she says. "We are feminine and taken out to dinner, and we are supposed to have children and take care of the home and have careers. That wasn't part of the '50s deal. Now, women are supposed to have careers, take care of the children and be a good wife and somehow have a beautiful home."
On Tuesday night's episode, Alicia overhears a conversation that pertains to her and her relationship with Will and a missed text message. Kevin gets the male point of view on the romantic triangle from Josh.
"I think we are going for something a little more complex than [hooking up]," Josh tells Kevin. "It is not just about hooking up. It is about a past connection. It is about missed connections. It is about a bond that you have with somebody. These two people are back in each other's lives. For a lot of reasons, it is not the right time and a lot of reasons not to happen, but there is still a pull. I enjoy the journey more than I am looking for the outcome."
"The Good Wife" airs Tuesday nights at 10 p.m. on CBS.
