Christine Baranski has a hope for Diane Lockhart's ending on The Good Wife, a hope that we're sure you all share as well. She wants Diane to live "happily ever after," the Emmy winner told us at the premiere of HBO's Everything Is Copy, a documentary about Nora Ephron.

Is that too much to ask, Robert and Michelle King? Can Diane finally not have to deal with men worried she's going to usurp their power?

The Good Wife is coming to an end this year with its seventh season. There are just a handful of episodes left in the story of Alicia Florrick (Julianna Margulies) as her journey comes to a close where it all started: back working in the big firm headed up by Baranski's Diane Lockhart.

"When people ask if I'm sad, I understand it's ending, but when you have something that's that well-written and great clothes, great dialogue and great characters, especially when it's female characters," she said about the upcoming conclusion. "You don't know what awaits because the Kings really know how to write smart girls, smart ladies."

As The Good Wife wraps up, expect some familiar faces to stop by. Viewers already saw Carrie Preston's Elsbeth Tascioni return for a final hurrah and Gary Cole, who plays Diane's husband Kurt McVeigh, will also make a final appearance on the CBS series. What's next? Blaire Underwood guest stars in the Sunday, March 20 episode when Diane, Cary (Matt Czuchry) and Lucca (Cush Jumbo) defend his character, a grieving father of a shooting victim, in a defamation suit after he puts up a billboard calling the gun store owner a murderer.
