martha plimpton good wife 320 'The Good Wife': Martha Plimpton returns, plus behind the scenes video“The Good Wife” is really gearing up for an exciting push towards the finale. Alicia just found out about Peter’s dalliance with Kalinda – the fallout from that ought to be interesting.

The show is taking a three-week break, but when it returns on May 3, guess who is back? Martha Plimpton‘s snarky lawyer Patti Nyholm returns, once again facing off with Lockhart/Gardner … and perhaps joining forces with them. Intriguing! And just by the by – if you haven’t been watching Plimpton on “Raising Hope,” you should. It’s a very funny show.

In addition to this great sneak peek photo, below is Alan Cumming‘s latest video blog. He’s filming around behind-the-scenes as they shoot the Florrick campaign victory party at a hotel in New York. Don’t you hope they find a way to bring America Ferrera back? She and Cumming had such great chemistry. Ferrera mentions “kissing” in the behind-the-scenes vid, so we wonder if a kiss between Eli and Natalie was cut? Because there was no kissing in Tuesday night’s (April 12) episode. Hmmm.

“The Good Wife” airs Tuesday nights at 10 p.m. ET on CBS.
