'The Good Wife' Preview: 5 Things To Know About 'Pants On Fire'

There's one big liar in "The Good Wife's" appropriately titled "Pants on Fire" (Sun., April 15, 9 p.m. ET on CBS). Who is it? Well, let's just say it's somebody who really pushes Alicia Florrick's (Julianna Margulies) buttons.

Here's what you need to know before watching the game-changer of an episode: "Pants on Fire" begins the countdown to the Season 3 finale. Alicia and Kalinda have begun to thaw out their friendship and Alicia has made steps to rebuild her family by going after her family's old house. In the legal world, Peter has been mulling a run for governor and Will is still suspended. Now, ready for scoop?
