The Good Wife 5×10 100th Episode Spoilers & MORE!
All The Good Wife spoilers posted here are from TVLine’s Michael Ausiello and Matt Webb Mitovich.
Responding to TVLine’s report earlier this week that Kalinda’s latest love interest (played by Juliet Rylance) had been cut from The Good Wife‘s Sept. 29 premiere, executive producer Robert King explained that the move was made out of “an over-abundance of caution” in the wake of last season’s much-maligned Nick plot.
“We didn’t have the time in the episode to build up the chemistry [between the pair], so we put a pause on [the storyline],” he told a group of reporters following a screening of the CBS drama’s game-changing Oct. 27 episode. “We just didn’t want to make a mistake again.”
However, King emphasized that the storyline is not dead. “We’re putting a pause on it — it’s not going away,” he stressed. “Whatever news reports that say it’s going away it’s not at all.”
Rylance’s busy schedule could prove to be an obstacle though. The English actress has since committed to starring in Cinemax’s 10-episode Steven Soderbergh-helmed drama The Knick.
Could someone please dig up some Good Wife scoop pertaining to Kalinda? –Tage
This quite possibly qualifies. Episode 100 will introduce the recurring character of Jenna, a tough, funny police detective who’s comfortable in her own skin (and, in fact, is comfortable in a lot of people’s skin. Which sounds sexy if you block out Silence of the Lambs imagery). Also, Jenna’s not averse to mixing the personal with the professional, so….
The Good Wife is taking Will and Alicia to hell in Episode 100 — and they may not come back.
The milestone hour, slated to air later this fall, will find Alicia (by then at the helm of Florrick Agos & Assoc.) going head-to-head with her ex-lover/onetime colleague in court — and it’s going to get ugly (possibly even uglier than this).
“There’s going to be a whole act where they use what they know about each other from their love affair in a courtroom battle,” reveals Good Wife co-creator Robert King. “They’re going to basically undercut each other every step of the way.”
King adds that the episode will include “some wonderful flashbacks” to Alicia and Will’s brief romance, “and then you’ll see how they use” those memories against each other in court.
So, what’s the case that triggers the War of the Roses-worthy brawl?
King isn’t saying, but here’s a whopper of a clue: This is the episode that marks the return of Fringe‘s John Noble as Alicia’s late client Matthew Ashbaugh.
From TV Guide
John Noble played Matthew Ashbaugh, one of Alicia’s very rich and eccentric clients who was murdered last season. (Kalinda later solved the crime, natch.) Considering Noble appeared almost solely in flashbacks in his debut episode, only time will tell just how Ashbaugh will return. Noble’s episode is set to air sometime in the first half of the season.
Best known for his role as Walter Bishop on Fringe, John Noble is just one of several The Good Wife guest stars returning to the acclaimed drama for Season 5. Carrie Preston, America Ferrera and Gary Cole will also be coming back.
[And add to that Weeds Hunter Parrish, who will appear in episode 5x07 airing November 10th, 2013.]
The Good Wife returns with episode 5×04 Outside the Bubble on Sunday Oct. 20th, 2013 9:30/8:30c on CBS.
