'The Good Wife' Star Says Episode 5 Will Be As Shocking As The 'Game Of Thrones' Red Wedding

CBS

"The Good Wife" is amping up the drama for Season 5.

Series star Graham Phillips -- Zach Florrick on the CBS series -- took to Twitter to share his thoughts on the fifth episode of "The Good Wife" Season 5 and compared the episode to the "Red Wedding" episode of HBO's "Game Of Thrones."

The "Game of Thrones" episode Phillips referred to featured a shocking bloodbath at a wedding. After a fervor of Twitter replies, Phillips clarified.

"The Good Wife" ended Season 4 with Alicia (Julianna Margulies) agreeing to leave Lockhart/Gardner and start a new law firm with Cary (Matt Czuchry). In April, Margulies told The Huffington Post that Season 5 was going to be big. "The next 15 episodes of the next season are mapped out quite well," she said. "I can't go into it because I think Season 5 may be more exciting than any of the seasons we've seen."

"The Good Wife" bosses have teased major changes for the CBS legal drama. "Usually, it's a little bit of PR bulls*** when you say, 'Oh, next year will be the year when everything explodes.' Well, it's not really PR bulls*** for us to say that. This can't end happily for them. Once Alicia says 'I'm in' to Cary, all the characters are going to be at each other's throats. You know what I'm most excited about? I think Matt Czuchry probably has not been as well served by our show as his talents deserve. Next year, obviously you're going to see Matt more at the center of what's going on," "Good Wife" co-creator Robert King told The Daily Beast.

"The Good Wife" Season 5 premieres Sunday, Sept. 29 at 9 p.m. ET on CBS.
