The legal drama ended last night after seven seasons. It starred Julianna Margulies, Chris Noth, Christine Baranski, and Matt Czuchry.
[SPOILER WARNING!] In a letter to the show’s fans, the Kings said Diane (Baranski) slapped Alicia (Margulies) because she was becoming more like husband (Noth):
She was becoming more and more like her husband, and, ultimately, Diane was the collateral damage. That we found interesting. Over seven years could you completely remake your character? Could a victim become a victimizer?
They added that the final scene almost had Alicia chasing after a man:
We were tempted to have Alicia chase after a man in the end — stop him from getting on a train or an airplane at the last minute, hold him, kiss him. We like those endings. But there was something false about it here. It isn’t who Alicia is. In the end, the story of Alicia isn’t about who she’ll be with; it’s about who she’ll be.”
What do you think? Did you watch The Good Wife series finale? Did it end the way you wanted it to?
