So funny. Everytime Kalinda needs to escape from something or cope with something (aka having random sex) Cary ends up being screwed over (metaphorically and litteraly) by her in the process. I’m sick of this. I don’t care if Kalinda is messed up right now because Will. Because I’m tired of Cary being involved in that thing like he and his feelings don’t matter.
That’s just speculation but I think F/A will last another bunch of episodes and by the end of the season some big problem will force F/A to consider the merge. But that’s not the problem.
It’s non even the fact that Diane and Alicia, suddenly want to merge F/A and L/G just because Will is dead.
The problem is that from those spoilers and promo it looks like that storyline will revolve mostly all around Diane and Alicia reasons to do it, while Cary is not even mentioned or considered like another relevant and big part of the story. Once again he’ll get a marginal role, while other characters will do all the interesting stuff.
He will be probably just pictured like the obstacle to overcome before merging the firm but that’s not even adressed by spoilers and promos like it’s not a big deal. Who cares about what Cary thinks? Let’s forget the reasons why all the F/A associates left are still there: David Lee and Co. who screwed them over. Let’s forget about the fact that if they would merge F/A associates were outnumbered by L/G associates and will lose all the indipendence they left for. Let’s forget about Cary who arranged the all thing, leaded the other associates and who would probably be screwed somewhat in the merge process. Let’s forget about the fact that Cary was on Alicia’s side all the time and he even informed her about his thing with Kalinda to protect the firm and come clean to her (let’s talking about a “real” partner) How can Alicia even consider a merge without thinking that Cary will be likely against it?
But it looks it’s just matter of Diane’s reason, who obviously doesn’t want to share her firm with people she doesn’t like. And it’s just matter of Alicia’s reason. Will is not there anymore. She feels guilty about the split now that Will is dead. So let’s undo everything Cary and Co. built. And let it be that storyline mostly about everyone but just consequently about Cary, because, you know, that was his season, so no reason to write even now something worthy for him.
It’s really frustrating that every time writers have a chance to give Cary someting interesting to do they end up systematically underplaying his role and making all about other characters.
I don’t think Will’s death was a mistake. I think the mistake was to focus an entire season on Will’s character because Josh Charles was leaving, while other characters were left in the waiting room. And now we are asked to keep watching because those other characters…Kalinda, who was completely messed up by writers and who didn’t have nothing to do besides bedding random people, Cary who didn’t get one solid and consistent storyline and just spend his time being on Alicia’s side without anything interesting to do or to say, Diane who was missed in action for a long time….Now maybe they’re going to reverse that thing but maybe it’s too late. I’m just thinking what ER writers did when Anthony Edwards left. They did start to make stronger other characters and their storylines because the show was losing its rock. It was a smart move and it worked. The show survived. I don’t know if the good wife will survive. I just know that right now there are not storylines or characters I’m excited about.
And I also know that even now those writers won’t do anything good with Cary’s character and will keep leaving Matt Czuchry without Emmy material, underrated and underused for ever..

The Good Wife - The Next Day Sneak Peek
Lockhart/Gardner’s top private investigator is in desperate need of some TLC.
Rylance shot scenes for the Season 5 premiere that were later cut for time. Although there was a potential for her to recur, the English actress was technically only booked for that episode.
Best known for her role in the horror film Sinister, Rylance was set to play a party girl named Holly whose out-and-proud lifestyle would have been in major contrast to Kalinda’s extremely private ways.
Maybe this will mean good news for Kalinda and Cary (Matt Czuchry)? The twosome seemed to be heating up at the end of last season just as Cary was crafting his plan to exit Lockhart/Gardner and start his own firm. Like always, it’s never that easy with these two. “It’s complicated by the fact that Kalinda would not leave with them, but Robyn is. There’s a series of circumstances between Kalinda and Cary that makes it difficult for sexual affection to blossom because of what Cary is doing,” co-creator and executive Robert King told TVGuide.com last month.
Yeah, let’s enter Cary, Kalinda’s plan B. Shoot. Me. Now. Come on, we all know they’ll never really write for Cary and Kalinda something worth Archie Panjabi and Matt Czuchry chemestry.”It’s complicated” is their seasonal excuse to do nothing meaningful (or just ON SCREEN) with them.
And it’s funny. Now that they had to cut the new love interest media miraculously start to remember that Cary and Kalinda hooked up last season and there was absolutely no follow up for that storyline (it’s a Cary’s storyline, so no surprise). But when they spilled the news about that new love interest nobody mentioned Cary. It was like what happened between them was completely irrilevant. And now that Kalinda’s was left (again) without her mandatory new love interest suddenly that is supposed to be a good news for Cary and Kalinda….please, stop pulling my leg.
