Season finales provided a lot of healthy closure this week, at least according to our shrink Mitzi Cohen-McGinty, Ph.D. She says that The Biggest Loser is not just about how we look on the outside. She praised Glee for showing us that there is no "right" when it comes to the relationship between a child and the mother who gave her up for adoption. She thinks Jack and Chloe are totally 24's most codependent coworkers, so it's good that they've decided to spend some time apart. And finally, according to Dr. Cohen-McGinty, Lost's season finale is just a metaphor for the journey to self-actualization that we all must take - except, you know, while we're still truckin' on this mortal coil - and preferably from the couch of her stately Upper West Side salon.

Over on Ken Tuckerâs TV blog, we have an eloquent, thought-provoking critique of last nightâs season 1 finale of The Good Wife. Here, I just want to know what you were doing while watching those final moments (relive them again below). Me, I was laying on my couch, literally kicking and screaming. The beauty/danger of watching a show you DVRâd is itâs easy to lose track of where you are in the hour when you donât have a clock telling you itâs 10:59. There was a tiny part of me that didnât think it was time to end on the cliffhanger of whether Alicia would answer Willâs second call to hear his âplanâ or ignore the ring and step onstage to support Peter. (That was the part of me shouting a âDo not do it!â warning at the TV, willing the episode not to stop there, and kicking the sofa cushion because, of course, deep down I love that the writers got me to that unglued place.) What was your reaction? I also found myself wondering if Will opened that $8,000 wine for liquid courage (if so, I hope he drank more than a sip) or because you only open a bottle like that on a special occasion - and manning up, at that moment, counted.

Her husband is out of prison, but Alicia Florrick (Julianna Margulies) hardly has reason to celebrate. On the season finale of The Good Wife, airing Tuesday at 10/9c on CBS, Alicia must decide whether to stand by her husband Peter (Chris Noth) as he prepares to re-enter the political arena after a sex scandal. "With Peter's exoneration, the question will turn toward whether politics makes him that way or whether there's something in him himself," series co-creator and executive producer Robert King tells TVGuide.com. "With him possibly wanting to run again, Alicia faces the idea of, 'Even if I do forgive my husband, does that mean that he will always make these same mistakes?'" Alicia also has to figure out if her heart lies with someone else: her old law school friend and boss Will (Josh Charles). Since their passionate kiss earlier this season, however, Will has met someone else: law student Giada Cabrini (Karen Olivo). "As they've said, they have bad timing," King says.

Cary Agos is no longer a member of Stern, Lockhart & Gardner. Beat out by Alicia for the coveted junior associate spot on last week's episode of The Good Wife, where will this bitter character end up? The promo for tomorrow night's new installment gives fans a good idea, but let's hear it from Matt Czuchry himself: "The next episode, there is a scene where I go off on Alicia and take a job from Childs. The final episode of the season is Cary actually over there. Thatâs something that they could have taken at least two or three episodes to explore, and it still would have been great, but they just jumped right to it," the actor told EW.com.

Matt Czuchry would be the first person to tell you that Cary was never going to win the junior associate bake-off on The Good Wife. But after seeing the promo for Tuesdayâs episode (CBS, 10 p.m. ET) - which shows Cary in cahoots with Childs (Titus Welliver), Peterâs nemesis - weâre suddenly okay with that. Here, Czuchry tells us how the contest was originally supposed to end, if weâll be meeting Evil Cary (fingers crossed!), and why being crowned Mr. College of Charleston changed his path from being a lawyer to playing one on TV.
