The Good Wife, probably last years one of the best shows and definitely the most underrated one, is back to screen after thrilling season 5. The first episode The Line aired today placing us right in the center of mindblowing events and now I believe, its writers are never going to upset us.
**Spoilers from now on**
To refresh your memory, last season ended with Eli suggesting Alicia to run for State Attorney and Diane approached Florrick/Argos for merger. This season continues right after these events, since Alicia and Cary are still discussing Lockhart's proposal and Mr. Gold is still pleading for running as SA.
The Line has everything The Good Wife writers are good at: surprises, passion and overwhelming speed of how everything happens. But mostly, it's because now our favorite lawyers suddenly are on the wrong side of law. Cary Agos is detained and imprisoned for drug charges as he helped his client Lemond Bishop to avoid the law. Even the arrest scene is an example of perfection, because it brings suspicion, surprise, confusion and you almost feel the same Agos feels. The rest happens from the point of view of him, we follow to detention center, prison and courtroom and we, including the convicted, do not know what the hell is going on.
As later it turns out, someone from Bishop's guys has recorded Cary's visit to his client and now he's used to reach the biggest drug dealer in the city. Even by the end of episode, we are not sure whether Cary is guilty or not.
**No Spoilers from now on**
It seems that season 6 will be a quite good season for Matt Czuchry [click it]. His character gets the central attention for the very beginning and I don't think he will be offscreen too soon. Maybe we finally see him in the awards race? We'll see. So far, Cary has been one of my favorite characters on the show.
this tweet clearly sumps all it up:
Well we did want better writing for Cary. I guess we should have been careful for what we wished for #TheGoodWife

To conclude, The Line has been a brilliant start of new season. It's promising and I really hope everything gets even more interesting and we might see better one than season 5.
