“The Good Wife” wraps Season 2 Tuesday night (May 17) in a finale that we have already seen by the previews should prove to be explosive. Star Josh Charles, the suave Will Gardner on the show, tells Zap2it about the finale – specifically, about what is in store for Alicia and Will.
“I do think where this will end up at the end of the season will really position us for the beginning of next season and where we take it. We’ll learn a lot,” teases Charles. “For better or worse, I believe where we go at the end of this season – not just with Will and Alicia, but everything – really set us up in a really nice way for next year.”
Charles also likens the Will/Alicia risk as the same type of risk executive producers/writers Robert and Michelle King took with the Alicia/Kalinda relationship.
“I know that Robert and Michelle King care more deeply about this than anybody. What’s so brilliant about them – look what they did with Kalinda and Alicia’s relationship. They’re really unafraid to take risks,” says Charles. “They feel confident enough in their abilities that these risks are justified and they’re actually understandable. The risks are not just out of nowhere, they’re actually grounded in an organic reality of the characters … The show doesn’t live in a world of black and white. It lives in gray and so I applaud that.”
Another new relationship the show is exploring is Peter (Chris Noth) and Cary (Matt Czuchry) in the State’s Attorney’s office. Charles plays coy, but does say we’ll find out more about what is going on there in the season finale as well.
“I can tell you that [Peter and Cary’s storyline] will present itself even more in the finale.
That’ll all make it more apparent and clear where we can head into the
next season when you watch Tuesday.”
“The Good Wife” airs Tuesday nights at 10 p.m. ET/PT on CBS.
