"The Good Wife" fans are still reeling over Will Garner's death, and consequently, actor Josh Charles' departure, but viewers can rest assured one cast member is staying put.
According to reports this week, Matthew Goode is being promoted from the series' guest star to a regular actor for the rest of season five. The actor portrays new prosecutor in the State Attorney's Office Finn Polmar on "The Good Wife." The character was in the shocking scene that saw Will's client (portrayed by Hunter Parrish) gun him down in the courtroom. In fact, it was Finn who tried to resuscitate Will, but failed.
According to executive producer and co-creator Robert King, Finn will be at the center of a "political crossfire" in relation to the courtroom shooting as the State Attorney's office searches for someone to blame, reported TVLine.
Moreover, other spoilers indicate that Damian Boyle (Jason O'Mara) will make his final season five appearance this Sunday, April 13. Finn mentioned Damian to Alicia as being "some guy" that Will needed to fire for stealing his clients, but TV Line reported there is more to the story that viewer's will learn about this week.
Also in this week's episode of "The Good Wife," Alicia, Diana and the rest of the cast continue to cope with the aftermath of Garner's tragic death. The April 13 episode is entitled "A Material World." The synopsis on TV Guide reads: "Alicia and Diana consider merging their firms in the wake of Will's death, even as they take opposite sides in a contentious divorce case. Meanwhile, Alicia offers her assistance to Finn when it becomes clear that the State's Attorney is looking for a scapegoat in the Jeffrey Grant case."
"The Good Wife" airs on CBS Sundays at 9 p.m. EST.
