Season Five of The Good Wife marks a new start for Alicia Florrick (Emmy and Golden Globe winner Julianna Margulies) as she and Cary (Matt Czuchry) join forces to launch their own law firm. As they sever ties with Lockhart/Gardner, tensions escalate and explode as the new rivals go into attack mode - battling each other both in and out of court. Alicia's relationship with Will (Josh Charles) seems irrevocably damaged as he contends with her professional and personal betrayal. Diane (Christine Baranski), who was poised for a judgeship, has her nomination revoked after firing Alicia and returns to the firm.
Kalinda's (Emmy winner Archie Panjabi) relationships with Alicia and Cary are also tested, as she remains loyal to Lockhart/Gardner. Meanwhile, newly elected Governor Peter Florrick (Chris Noth) and his Chief of Staff Eli (Alan Cumming) face new corruption issues as the Ethics Commission investigates possible voter fraud during Peter's gubernatorial campaign. Alicia's new venture leads her to volatile showdowns, altering every major relationship she's cultivated. For the first time on DVD, this 6-disc, 22-episode set witnesses Alicia's complete transformation from a good wife to a legal powerhouse.
