The Good Wife Season 5 Spoilers: ‘Everything is Ending,’ Julianna Margulies Teases ‘Bloodbath,’ ‘Whirlwind’ and ‘Explosion’ [PHOTOS]

By on

The Good Wife Season 5 spoilers suggest yet another dramatic chapter for Mrs Florrick, now the governor's wife. Julianna Margulies talks about the titular character's development in the show. Julianna says Alicia's decision creates a "bloodbath" at Lockhart Gardner.

The Good Wife fifth season premiere is called, "Everything is Ending."

"(Alicia Florrick) really is a good girl, but it's always nice to be wanted," Julianna Margulies says in this CBS interview. Julianna's decision in The Good Wife Season 4 proves this point. She's considering the renewal of vows proposal by hubby Peter Florrick (Chris Noth), and staying away from college sweetheart Will Gardner (Josh Charles).

In the same video, series co-creator Michelle King says the Alicia Florrick realism stems from how things come to her "from every direction." In the The Good Wife Season 5 premiere for instance, Alicia has to save (another) convict from being executed while figuring out how to tell Will and Diane (Christine Baranski) that she's leaving Lockhart Gardner.

Co-creator Robert King says Alicia Florrick is now more powerful than ever. And she's protecting this status because she couldn't be a helpless woman again, ever.

"You and I are the new Will and Diane," Cary Agos (Matt Czuchry) tells Alicia. By the last act of the finale, she's obviously flattered, excited, and determined to dive into a new path. Julianna says she enjoys how Mrs Florrick is "constantly finding things out about her."

 Alicia Florrick does not want to be like her needy, heart-on-her-sleeves mother (Stockard Channing as Veronica Loy), Julianna says. And so she's protecting her marriage. But Julianna teases, The Good Wife Season 5 will see some "really tumultuous time." She adds, "You're gonna be on a whirlwind. And then there's gonna be an explosion. It's gonna rock everyone's world on the show."

The Good Wife Season 5 Spoilers: What about Kalinda Sharma (Archie Panjabi)?

No 'Good Wife' spoilers is complete without news about the brilliant Archie Panjabi. Robert King said in a separate interview Kalinda Sharma will feel betrayed by Alicia and Cary.

She will find comfort with Juliet Rylance, a new love interest. "What we love is the idea that someone tries to pull Kalinda out of herself in a way," King says in a scoop.

The Good Wife Season 5, Episode 1 "Everything is Ending" airs on Sep. 29 (Sunday) on CBS. Check out some still photos from
