‘The Good Wife’ Creators Explain That Slap in Series Finale (Video)

Robert and Michelle King discuss wrapping up the legal drama after seven remarkable seasons

After seven successful (and Emmy-winning) seasons of the legal drama “The Good Wife,” co-creators Robert and Michelle King knew that Sunday’s series finale should bring its heroine, Alicia Florick (Julianna Margulies), full circle.

“We started with the feeling that it should begin with a slap and end with a slap,” Robert King said in a video posted on CBS.com after the episode first aired.

“The show is about a woman who becomes more and more confident and more and more cunning,” he added. “We also had this idea of Alicia becoming more and more of something she also was not liking in her husband.”
