The Next Month is the eighth episode of the fifth season of The Good Wife and the ninety-eight episode overall.
Lockhart/Gardner, rebranding itself to be known simply as 'LG', plans to open a new branch in New York; and despite the lack of decor, Florrick/Agos finally move into their own offices. Natalie Florres (America Ferrera) returns to Chicago to ask Alicia's help in defending an undocumented Mexican immigrant who is being threatened with deportation if he does not testify against a dangerous drug cartel lord. Marilyn, who notices Eli's renewed interest in Natalie, fears for the ethical implications of his relationship with her. Robyn, meanwhile, fearing for her own place at Florrick/Agos, seeks Kalinda's advice to become indispensable to the firm.
