If you’re still a little salty about The Good Wife‘s downer ending — particularly Alicia’s unresolved relationship with Jason — you’re not alone.
“I didn’t like it,” Jeffrey Dean Morgan (aka Jason) tells Entertainment Weekly of the couple’s ambiguous conclusion. “We raised so many questions about Jason and this relationship that he had with Alicia that I felt like nothing was ever answered, you know? So I walked away frustrated for my character and Alicia’s character in not having any kind of closure with that.”
Morgan says he was asked to return to New York for reshoots two weeks after wrapping the finale, but couldn’t make the trip due to his Walking Dead commitments. (You know, batting practice and whatnot.) Still, he doesn’t think those reshoots “would have changed the story dramatically or anything.”
He also insists that “we don’t know” whether or not Jason really took off in the end — and that ambiguity isn’t sitting will with him.
“To just have it end so abruptly like that with no answers, it was hard for me reading it,” he admits. “I remember reading it, I put it down, I ran into work, and I saw Julianna [Margulies] and I was like, ‘What the f–k is this?’ And she’s like, ‘I had to read it like, 10 times. I think I get it. I think I understand what we’re trying to do here,” and I’m like, ‘Let me know because I don’t know.'”
Good Wife fans, did Jason and Alicia’s “conclusion” baffle you as much as it did Morgan? We know it’s been three months, but these wounds take time to heal, so drop whatever’s on your mind in a comment below.
