In the journey of Alicia Florrick, Will Gardner's death will be just a moment…a large, heartbreaking moment, but just because his fictional life ended doesn't mean it's the end of the road for The Good Wife. Actually, far from it.
"Of course there's gonna be this hole in her life, but how she fills it and how she starts to question her choices—‘Why am I doing this? Why am I representing these a--holes?'—suddenly it's black and white. There's no gray area," Julianna Margulies said about her character, Alicia Florrick, on The Good Wife. "A death, I think—anything important that happens in someone's life is a game-changer, and it makes you hopefully a better person for it. You'll see this tremendous loss for her, but the choices she makes from them on are incredibly careful, and they're mostly about her."
