On this week’s episode of The Good Wife, America Ferrera returned as a guest. Eli goes all twitterpated over her. It’s sweet and charming. It’s nice to see Alan Cumming get to break out of his straight-and-serious-suit persona and go a little googly-eyed over a smart and beautiful woman. He’s normally surrounded by smart and beautiful women, but he merely snarls at them. America Ferrera is Eli’s kryptonite.
Alan Cumming and America Ferrera seemed to enjoy the episode as much as the fans.

Josh Charles nabbed an amazing photo (and used a nice filter on it) of them when they were chatting.
Fan Reaction to the Pairing
Fans, me among them, loved this unlikely pair. Here are some sample tweets about the show.
#TheGoodWife continues to impress post-break-up. Was especially delighted by smitten Eli. It’s nice when Cummings is allowed to play human.

Eli’s hair does this amazing thing when he runs. His hair shows all of his feelings. #TheGoodWife
