The Mentalist's Final Season: Get Ready for an Unconventional Lisbon-Jane Romance, the Return of Familiar Faces and More

As The Mentalist prepares to kick off its seventh and final season Sunday, members of the cast and crew say they feel like they have a new show on their hands. First, there's no will-they-or-won't-they tension between Patrick Jane (Simon Baker) and Teresa Lisbon (Robin Tunney) to grapple with, after that steamy kiss in the Season 6 finale. And, for the first time in the show's history, the Red John storyline will not be lurking in the background.

"Essentially this season is about what happens when life turns out the way you'd hoped it would, when you do have a happy ending," creator Bruno Heller told reporters on a conference call last week. "What happens after that? Jane and Lisbon have been engaged in this epic journey for six years. ... How do you create a different kind of life? And how do you create a different relationship out of a relationship that was borne in the kind of trauma that theirs was? ... It's the last hurrah for the show."

Weekend Playlist: Good Wife, Viking Finales; Carousel, Inside the TARDIS

In Sunday's brilliantly entertaining finale to another splendid season of CBS' The Good Wife — we choose to forget that Kalinda's ex ever existed — Denis O'Hare returns as a judge whose sciatica keeps him off the bench, pacing around the courtroom as he presides over a late-night emergency hearing over ballot-box irregularities in the next day's neck-and-neck election for Illinois governor. (Alicia's husband Peter is sweating every single vote.) Like Judge Abernathy, you may find it difficult to stay seated as this episode (9/8c), written by series creators Robert King (who also directed) and Michelle King, takes its many clever twists and turns, specializing in mischievous misdirection and game-changing surprises up to the very last jaw-dropping minute.

7 Ways How The Good Wife Got Its Groove Back This Season

Nick who? That's what fans of The Good Wife are — thankfully — asking after a recent string of strong episodes have erased the unpleasant first half of Season 4  from memory. In September, the legal drama (airing Sundays at 9/8c) suffered a rare critical misfire when it introduced Kalinda's (Archie Panjabi) cold and abrasive estranged husband Nick (Marc Warren), who was not popular with the fans. No irreparable damage was done, but for a show that was regularly in critics' top 10 lists during its first three seasons, the negative attention was surprising. Producers caught on and quickly expunged Nick. Less than four months later, the show is stronger than ever. So how'd they do it? Here's seven ways... read more

Dylan Baker on Colin Sweeney's Return to The Good Wife

When accused wife-killer Colin Sweeney (Dylan Baker) turned up in The Good Wife's first season, it was loathe at first sight. Sweeney knew exactly which of then-first year associate Alicia Florrick's (Julianna Margulies) buttons to push, and since then the writers have used the twisted relationship to set up some of the show's best shows. Sweeney returns for the March 31 episode, which sees the domestic bliss he's found with former employee Isobel (Morena Baccarin) and their son threatened by the Supreme Court. Baker called up TV Guide Magazine from the Anchorman 2 set in Atlanta ("I haven't ruined any takes yet by laughing, but it's early days," he admitted) to talk about the return of everyone's favorite slimy — or "uncomplicatedly, refreshingly open," as Baker puts it — Lockhart/Gardner client... read more

The Good Wife Gives John Noble a Role to Die For

It's the Fringe-Good Wife crossover we never knew we wanted: John Noble is taking his talents to the law firm of Lockhart/Gardner on Sunday (9/8c, CBS) as one of Alicia's eccentric clients who can't seem to keep himself out of court — and who's been murdered as of the beginning of the episode. (He's subsequently seen in flashbacks.) Aussie native Noble called up TV Guide Magazine to talk about Fringe withdrawal, The Good Wife and domesticity.
