[Warning: Spoilers for The Good Wife's series finale follow.]
"To talk about the end of the series is probably to talk about the beginning of the series," co-creator Robert King said of The Good Wife, after its Sunday night finale. "We'd always had this idea of Alicia becoming more and more of something that she also was not liking in her husband." To that end, the show finished how it began: with a slap.
I'm not saying it was ineffective, but that was a very monomaniacal finale for a show that was about so many things. #TheGoodWife— Daniel Fienberg (@TheFienPrint) May 9, 2016
The ending of #TheGoodWife had just the right amount of ambiguity and closure. It was really great, i think.— Ben Dreyfuss (@bendreyfuss) May 9, 2016
