The Good Wife - Season 3 ...


The Good Wife may have felt a bit aimless through much of season three - Alicia was secretly dating Will; then Will was suspended; Diane juggled a couple of men; Eli met a new adversary; the firm struggled financially - but, with "Pants on Fire," and with just two episodes remaining now until the finale, it's safe to say the show has found a direction.

In preparation for the move, CBS has scheduled a half-hour catch-up special, The Good Wife: A New Beginning, on Sunday, Sept. 4 at 9:30 p.m. with interviews from the executive producers and stars of the show, footage and storylines from the last two seasons. A sneak peek at scenes from the third season premiere will also be included.

With those celebratory words from his former rival, Alicia Florrick (Julianna Margulies), one chapter closed and another re-opened for Cary Agos (Matt Czuchry) on The Good Wife. After spending two years working for the State's Attorney's Office, Cary was welcomed back to Lockhart & Gardner on Season 3's penultimate episode.Finale Preview: Get scoop on how your favorite shows are ending their seasons

Cary's extended time away also allowed room for his delicate friendship with Kalinda (Archie Panjabi) to evolve into something much more complicated. "That relationship has always been fun to play and there's plenty of room to grow with those two," Czuchry says. "One of the great things about Cary having been gone for two seasons ... is that that really gives a lot of currency to the audience in building that history. In Season 2, we saw Cary protect Kalinda. But in Season 3, we saw Cary was also willing to do his job when he put her in jail. That's a pretty wide swath in terms of what their relationship has gone through. And now that they're both in the same place, that relationship has a lot of potential to be an exciting one for Season 4."

But the person Cary will have to worry about the most, it seems, is Will (Josh Charles), who Cary was forced to try to indict earlier this season. "Will and Cary are first and foremost good at their jobs and they're also both very ambitious people," Czuchry says. "In the first season, it was probably a pipe dream to think that Cary would get that junior associate position, but now with two years of cases on the other side, that is no longer a pipe dream. That really gives Cary a certain weight that he didn't have in Season 1, and I think that's bound to cause some tension for a little bit."

That passion for storytelling is what makes Czuchry excited to explore the repercussions of Cary's return next season. "With Cary coming back to the firm, you create different windows and different dynamics with everyone," Czuchry says. "There's so much history because Cary worked with those characters and also worked against them. It creates a whole new dynamic not only in the firm itself, but just with each of those individual relationships."The Good Wife season finale airs Sunday at 9/8c on CBS.

Tricia: I mean, she even has it tied back like a good schoolgirl. For Season 4, she did what everyone who has ever had bangs has had to do: grow them out. Except Wig can skip the awkward in-between phase.

Moira: Sigh. Updos on this show make me think of Kalinda. She Who Must Not Be Named. But Wig looks good here; less wiggy than usual. Note the red dress, again; this one is from Lanvin. I love that Alicia has not one but TWO fabulous red formal gowns in her closet. Is this standard for lawyers

CBS offered Julianna Margulies The Good Fight's usual guest star rate, Deadline reports. That was not OK to the star who led The Good Wife for seven seasons from 2009 to 2016 before the spinoff was launched:

Julianna Margulies led The Good Wife through all seven seasons but turned down a chance to appear in Season 1 of the spinoff because she wanted to let the show establish its own voice. However, Alicia's name came up frequently in conversations, so she was definitely -- and still is -- part of the spinoff's world. Now that the CBS All Ac
