  • The simplicity of the final scene that was perfectly acted, directed and shot shows the strength of The Good Wife.

    The finale sets its tone when an integral piece of evidence in a murder case falls from an envelope Alicia opens. The quiet tone of the show can have its dark underlining. There's a form of sensation that comes from the easy shots and strong script. The conversations are interesting and entertaining and the biggest story twists come from them. They form a connection between every story that has been told and result in an well packed finale in every sense of the word. The case itself is interesting enough to carry the episode. The grey area Will finds himself continuously is refreshing. Far from the average cases that legal shows tend to throw around. On a personal level the episode doesn't really go out. It can be found in the simple scenes like Jackie joining Alicia's brother and the kids for diner. The promotion that awaits Alicia. Or the game plan Eli has to obey to. It's well thought through and executed wonderfully. That final scene. Really.
