Muerte de un personaje en ‘The Good Wife’, los creadores les escriben a los fans

The Good Wife

Una vez más esta temporada, The Good Wife da que hablar tras un giro argumental importante. Los creadores de la serie, Robert y Michelle King, decidieron que era preferible tomar el control de esa difusión para evitar que la situación derive rápidamente. Los guionistas han matado a un personaje importante, lo que va volver a definir las dinámicas de su serie más tarde e infaliblemente sobresalta a los fans. Recordemos que ‘The Good Wife’ ha sido renovada para una temporada 6 por lo que esta muerte no afectará únicamente a la actual temporada.

Si no has visto el episodio Dramatics, Your Honor (5.15), has de tener cuidado con los spoilers. Esta es la carta que les envían los King a los fans de la serie:

En el episodio el personaje de Will Gardner (al que daba vida Josh Charles) fallece. Los King aseguran que Josh tomó la decisión hace más de un año de dejar la serie para hacer otras cosas y que entonces sólo les quedaba la opción de hacer desaparecer de una manera u otra. La opción que han tomado creen que servirá para enfrentar al público a la realidad de la muerte, algo a lo que hemos de enfrentarnos todos, y al personaje de Alicia impulsarlo a una nueva encarnación refrescando la trama de paso.

Josh Charles no abandona definitivamente la serie ya que dirigirá uno de los capítulos de esta temporada tras la muerte del personaje. Ya había actuado como director en un episodio de la cuarta y otro de la quinta temporada.

Dear Loyal Good Wife Fans,

We, like you, mourn the loss of Will Gardner. And while Will is gone, our beloved Josh Charles is very much alive and remains an integral part of our family.

The Good Wife, at its heart, is the “Education of Alicia Florrick.” To us, there always was a tragedy at the center of Will and Alicia’s relationship: the tragedy of bad timing. And when faced with the gut punch of Josh’s decision, made over a year ago, to move on to other creative endeavors, we had a major choice to make.

We could “send him off to Seattle,” he could be disbarred, or get married, or go off to Borneo to do good works. But there was something in the passion that Will and Alicia shared that made distance a meager hurdle. The brutal honesty and reality of death speaks to the truth and tragedy of bad timing for these two characters. Will’s death propels Alicia into her newest incarnation.

Death also created a new dramatic “hub” for the show. We’re always looking for these turning points—some event midway through the season that will spin everybody’s lives in new directions. These turning points keep the show from slipping into a numbing sameness, and keep the characters fresh: because you see how they react to a completely new status quo. Will’s death in many ways becomes a hub for the whole series, violently spinning everybody in new directions.

Finally, we chose the tragic route for Will’s send-off for personal reasons. We’ve all experienced the sudden death of a loved one in our lives. It’s terrifying how a perfectly normal and sunny day can suddenly explode with tragedy. Television, in our opinion, doesn’t deal with this enough: the irredeemability of death. Your last time with the loved one will always remain your last time. The Good Wife is a show about human behavior and emotion, and death, as sad and unfair as it can be, is a part of the human experience that we want to share.

Thank you for listening…and watching and caring and inspiring us to rise to the level of your passion and intelligence. There are seven wonderful episodes to follow this season and Josh will be directing one of them. We think you will enjoy them. It’s not all tears — there is comedy too. Michael J. Fox is back for four episodes. Dylan Baker. Dallas Roberts. Stockard Channing, as well as amazing new guest actors. And of course, Julianna does some of the best work of her life. Archie, Christine, Alan, Chris and Matt as well. Life does go on.

We’ve always taken as a guiding principle of this show that drama isn’t in the event; it’s in the aftermath of the event. We think you’ll find that true of this episode

Thank you for your devotion to the show – we are continually grateful.

With all our thanks,

Robert & Michelle King
