When The Good Wife returns for its seventh season, Alicia Florrick will be a changed woman. Without an office — or a husband (at least in private) — to hold, she has no one to answer to, and in the first trailer for the new season, it seems she’s enjoying her independence.

The trailer also gives fans their first glimpse at Margo Martindale as Willa Eastman, a campaign operative who’s more than likely on board to help Peter with his vice presidential run. And yet the most intriguing part of the trailer is a confrontation between Peter and Eli. Could those two go head-to-head? (And who would win that battle? Definitely Eli, right?)


The Good Wife premieres on Sunday, Oct. 4 at 9 p.m. ET on CBS.
