THE GOOD WIFE
Political intrigue, family drama and the return of Cary! Yes, Tuesday’s season finale of THE GOOD WIFE had all the makings of a fantastic season ender. Until of course the overzealous publicity department at CBS inexplicably felt the need to completely spoil the ending by releasing what turned out to be a virtual shot-for-shot slideshow of the season’s not-so-shocking final moment (See above photo). Talk about your not-so-good-ending to a great season.
Despite Michael Ausiello’s assertion that PRIVATE PRACTICE would feature “what I’m 100 percent certain may be one of the most shocking deaths in any of this season’s finales,” there was very little shocking about Del’s death. Particularly thanks to Chris Lowell’s uncharacteristically vocal stance with regards to his unhappiness when it came to his character’s trajectory and the fact that he had already packed his abs… err… bags for New York City.
If imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, somewhere in Hollywood J.J. Abrams has a big grin on his face following Monday’s CHUCK finale which to be blunt, any ALIAS fan saw coming a mile away. Note to showrunners Josh Schwartz and Chris Fedak, if you’re wondering how you can make it up to us, please consider casting one of the following actresses as Chuck’s mysterious mother: Lena Olin, Mary McDonnell, Lynda Carter, Alberta Watson, Mimi Rogers and/or Sela Ward.
While we’re not going to pretend that we had the slightest notion of just how Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse were planning on ending their six year odyssey (Vincent FTW!), of this we were sure: Days later, we’d still be scratching our head!
