Martha Plimpton as Patti Nyholm is one of my favorite guest stars on The Good Wife. I was sad when she secured a spot on Raising Hope because it would curtail her ability to appear on the CBS show. But I'm happy to announce that she'll be appearing in the next new episode of the show, which will be airing on May 3.
In the episode, Lockhart/Gardner takes on a client who needs a liver transplant and defends her against Patti and her co-counsel. But then things take an interesting turn: Patti is actually fired from her law firm and decides to ask Lockhart/Gardner to represent her in a lawsuit against her former employer.
Alicia, meanwhile, has her own problems to deal with. After it was revealed in the last episode that Peter and Kalinda actually had a one-night stand that Alicia never knew about, she will be forced to deal with the emotional fallout from this revelation. The question is what she'll decide to do. You can read Emma's article about what Alicia might choose to do next here. Chris Noth will be making a guest appearance in this episode to deal with the fallout.
