‘The Good Wife’ season 6, episode 1 reaction: Matt Czuchry on surprising Cary story

Good Wife -
What happened tonight?

While we knew that “The Good Wife” would have some big surprises in store for us during the season 6 premiere, the entire story for Cary caught us almost completely off-guard. Who knew that something that appeared to be routine with Bishop would lead to accusations of drug trafficking and an arrest?

Now, Alicia is having to navigate all waters while her business partner is in jail, and with him in there for at least another week while the source of bail funds can be validated, there are difficult times ahead. Matt Czuchry spoke out about this story in a post-mortem to The Hollywood Reporter, and made it clear that the impact here will be long-lasting:

“Cary at the beginning of the episode is innocent and when he is put in jail he is presumed guilty, and when you’re presumed guilty, it’s tough to go back to that innocence. That affects Cary both personally and professionally. Professionally, what clients are going to come to you, what clients will stay, what clients will leave? Personally, what does it mean for the relationship between him and Kalinda? In this case Cary and Kalinda grow closer because she fights for him. It’s not a story line that’s going to go away. We’re going to see how it affects Cary personally and professionally and how it affects everyone at the firm and on the show.”

We also anticipate Cary’s arrest having something similar to a ripple effect, especially when it comes to Alicia figuring out if she wants to run for State’s attorney, and in turn how many clients Diane can bring over.
