What a sixth season! Alicia was the State's Attorney, and then she wasn't. Cary was headed to jail, and then he wasn't. Diane was out, and now she's back in. And now Kalinda is on the run?

The seventh season of "The Good Wife" kicks off this Sunday, so here's what we're looking forward to when the firm of Florrick Agos & Lockhart returns:

Running an Office

It seems like we get a new law firm every season. Last year Florrick Agos became Florrick Agos & Lockhart when Diane came on board. And you can bet season seven won't end that way.

Diane bailed on David Lee and Louis Canning, and then forced Canning's eviction from their shared building so Florrick Agos & Lockhart could move in after a hostile takeover. So expect Louis to come back after the fledgling firm, leading to more shakeups by season's end.

Running for Office

A constant theme over the past six seasons has been political campaigns. Between Peter's run for Governor and Alicia's run for State's Attorney, someone is always gunning for political office, and the backroom wheeling, dealing, and mudslinging has created some of the series' most fun storylines.

So who's next? Diane for state senator? Could Cary angle for a return to the State's Attorney's office? You know the writers will find some way to get Eli involved again.

Running for Their Lives

By the end of season six, drug kingpin Lemond Bishop had put out a hit out on Cary and found out it was Kalinda who put him behind bars. Bishop has more than enough muscle on the outside to go after Kalinda, Cary, and anyone else he thinks is responsible for his incarceration.

Who's safe, who's in danger, and how far will his revenge go?
