Fans of "The Good Wife" were left stunned Sunday (March 23) when Will Gardner's client Jeffrey Grant (guest star Hunter Parrish) crumbled under the pressure of being on trial for murder and stole a guard's gun, opening fire inside the courtroom. Gardner later died at the hospital.
Actor Josh Charles' exit seemingly comes out of nowhere, since the show managed to keep this completely under wraps. But it actually has been in the works since Season 4, when Charles asked to leave the show.

The Nsa surveillance, if you'll recall, is the on-going storyline that dates back to the Lockhart/Gardner case of Danny Marwat from Season 3.
Anyway, the Nsa can provide tips to other government agencies but the other agencies can't let it be the »
"The Good Wife" does not waste any time clearing up the cliffhanger from last year's fall finale and it turns out to be pretty much what we thought it was, thankfully. Glad to see the show didn't go the cliched right we were fearing it might.
It turns out Marilyn's baby daddy is Peter Bogdanovich, the famous film director behind "The Last Picture Show" and "Paper Moon," who cameos in the episode as himself. Random, to be sure, but it's pretty delightful that he actually showed up in the episode.
The case of the week features "The Good Wife" taking on "Glee," thinly disguised as the TV show "Drama Camp." Matthew Lillard guest-stars as one half of an acoustic singing duo who are suing the TV network for the not-"Glee" show covering their cover of a popular rap song. F.
