It was goodbye for The Good Wife last night as CBS aired the legal drama’s series finale. Creators Robert and Michelle King recently explained their decisions behind the final episode in a new video interview.
The Good Wife starred Julianna Margulies as Alicia Florrick, a lawyer who returns to work after her husband (Chris Noth) is jailed for corruption. Matt Czuchry, Christina Baranski, and Alan Cumming also starred.
[SPOILER WARNING!] Discussing the final episode, the Kings said it was always the plan to have Alicia turn into a more cunning and powerful woman:
To talk about the end of the series is probably to talk about the beginning of the series, because we start it with this feeling that it should begin with a slap and end with a slap. The show is about a woman who becomes more and more confident and more and more cunning and excited about her abilities and also about power, so that slap at the end is very similar to that slap at the beginning. We always had this idea of Alicia becoming more and more of something she was not liking in her husband.”
