The Good Wife wrapped up season three this week with a number of pressing questions:
What will happen when Kalinda's husband opens that door? How many employees will Will and Diane be forced to let go? Did Alicia go back for that slice of pizza? Will we ever see Matthew Perry as Mike Kresteva again?
In a wide-ranging interview with Entertainment Weekly, Good Wife creators Robert and Michelle King tackle these topics. Among the key takeaways:
- Yes, we will meet Kalinda's (still uncast) husband in what is intended to be a "long arc," says Robert. "This is something we really want to see — Kalinda’s past life colliding with her newly firmed up friendship with Alicia."
- About Alicia, add Robert... "I would say that Alicia is a little caught between whether to be Hillary Clinton - meaning a woman who will make all the right efforts to get her husband elected because she believes in what he believes in - and someone who isn’t sure whether what’s best for the kids is that she stay removed from the house."
- Peter's on-record admission that he and Alicia are separated will cause major problems.
- Robert says the duo really wants to feature Perry again in season four, and were aware of his potential NBC pilot when they cast him.
- Martha Plimpton and Michael J. Fox will be back as Patti Nyholm and Louis Canning, respectively.
In intriguing conclusion, Robert teased of the firm's financial woes:
"There’s gonna be a new element brought in at the beginning of the year that will have a circling the wagon effect, but we’d like to leave that a surprise."
