Josh Charles interview in LA Times about the season finale of The Good Wife (The Dream Team).
On whether Will’s experiences this season has changed him:
Knowing [executive producers] Robert and Michelle [King] the way I do, I don’t think anything’s going to be a complete 180 [-degree turn]. I don’t think he’s going to come out a born-again, but I do think that there are elements of him that have changed. It’s difficult for someone like him who’s such a competitive animal, and you get into the world of law, the game of it really taps into his addictive personality.
On the Will-Alicia elevator scene in this season’s finale (when Will asked Alicia “was it a mistake?”):
I really liked that scene. It shows there’s still a very deep relationship there, one that’s built on a deep level of respect. At the core of these two characters’ relationship is a really deep bond. It goes deeper than sex, than being together; it’s a mutual respect. That doesn’t go away just like that. I think he really loves her. It’s not like she’s the only one for him in his entire life, but there’s real love there.
On the bond between Will and Kalinda:
They’re both mysterious and they don’t allow a lot of vulnerability. We’ve also seen their armor chipped away this season. They are two characters who are loyal to each other and always have each other’s backs. There is a mutual appreciation there, a history and a bond.
