If the number of gray hairs on your head has increased tenfold since last September, feel free to blame it on The Good Wife showrunners Robert and Michelle King.
“That was absolutely our master plan,” says Michelle King, with a laugh, when asked about the show’s stressful sixth season. Indeed, in its most recent episode alone, the CBS drama found Alicia being forced to resign in disgrace from her hard-won State’s Attorney post, Cary offering to testify against dangerous drug kingpin Lemond Bishop, and Kalinda and Diane throwing themselves at the mercy of the court with regard to the altered metadata they used to free Cary from jail.
Heading into the final three episodes of the season (starting Sunday, 9/8c on CBS) with so much potential upheaval — and knowing that Kalinda’s portrayer Archie Panjabi won’t be returning for Season 7 — has only increased viewers’ anxiety levels. TVLine caught up with the Kings to get some nerve-soothing intel (and spoilers!) about the boot-ilicious investigator’s fate, the possibility of Peter’s role in Alicia’s downfall, and the romance forecast for Illinois’ first lady.
“Don’t Fail” – When a former client (Dorian Missick) calls Alicia after being charged with murder tied to a case from 2009, Alicia reviews the old case, prompting memories of her early days as a lawyer, on THE GOOD WIFE, Sunday, May 3 (9:00-10:00 PM, ET/PT), on the CBS Television Network. Episode written by Executive Producers Robert King and Michelle King.
“The Deconstruction” – Alicia faces an uncertain future when she is forced to resign as State’s Attorney in the wake of a voter fraud scandal. Also, R.D. (Oliver Platt) hires Diane and Cary to argue against two ultra-conservative lawyers for a test case involving mandatory minimum sentencing, on THE GOOD WIFE, Sunday, April 26 (9:00-10:00 PM, ET/PT), on the CBS Television Network.
