Mini tacos, anyone? If you’re craving for these on “The Good Wife”, there might be a little bit of waiting. “Let’s just hope mini tacos are soon to come!” Jeffrey Dean Morgan said to TV Guide regarding Alicia (Julianna Margulies) and Jason’s (Morgan) dinner rain check from two weeks ago.
According to Fox News, Morgan himself is waiting to see what happens in the show. “I can’t believe Peter [Chris Noth] showed up. Third-wheeling! And then she slept with him! But it was a pacifier in the meantime since she couldn’t be with Jason.” he said. Will Alicia now, though? From the time she first saw Jason’s injured arm and salt-and-pepper stubble, the usually composed lawyer transforms into a rattled teenager, crushing hard on the class’ bad boy, every time he grins at her.
On Sunday’s episode, their sexual pressure will rise red flags for Eli (Alan Cumming), who’s troubled it might damage Peter’s campaign. “You’re telling me when I sleep with Jason, you’d rather I’d kept it private?” Alicia said to Eli.
“I think these two are doing a little dance around each other and that’s not really over yet,” Morgan said. “I honestly don’t know what’s going to happen with them. [Creators Robert and Michelle King] have a way of not telling me anything. … The dance up until this point has been kind of interesting and there’s some more interesting stuff coming up. That goes back to the fact there’s an attraction between them definitely. I think he likes her and he’s very intrigued by her.”
Until now, Jason has been and still is an enigmatic personality. A month has passed and the best we know is that he’s a lawyer-turned-investigator, who stays up late for TED Talks, hates “signing things” and was disbarred for hitting a judge some seven years ago. Supposed judge also threateningly cautioned Alicia that Jason is a sociopath and recommended she read “The Sociopath Next Door” to better understand the believed monster she’s hiring.
“My opinion is Jason’s got a very strong sense of what is right and what is wrong,” Morgan said. “This judge who crossed him, I think there’s more to that story. I hope he’s coming off as a good investigator because I think that’s important to Alicia and the show and I do like the mystery of it all, and I think Jason does too. Jason likes being a little bit of a mystery to Alicia.”
So does he really want a relationship with her? He’s clearly conscious of her situation with Peter but some petty things like a marriage of convenience (and convenient sex), as well as a presidential campaign won’t discourage a guy who punched a judge. “I do think he’s a stand-up guy. If he’s having these strong feelings toward her and her toward him, I think he’ll find a way to cross that line with Alicia,” Morgan said. “As much as a good guy I think he is — he may not be the greatest guy but I don’t think he’s a sociopath — he also lives by the seat of his pants and will follow his heart. He’s passionate about right and wrong and probably about love.” he added.
Talking about ‘The Good Wife” Season 8, Morgan said, “We’ll see if there’s a Season 8. Right now, there isn’t yet. I don’t know what the end of Jason is. I don’t know when that’s going to stop. Right now, I’m not even taking it into consideration that this run is over for him. … I don’t see Jason going anywhere in the foreseeable future, so I think the ‘Good Wife’ fans can look forward to him hanging out for a bit longer and we’ll try to answer some questions along the way about where Jason and Alicia are going.” And if he does leave for good, Morgan has an exit strategy in mind: “I do die a lot on shows.” ”
Well, thank you for the wonderful insights, Mr. Morgan.
