The Good Wife > The Good Wife Season Finale Review: "Closing Arguments" > Comments Page 6
You are far from prudish! I also don't like that she is most probably "getting some" with Will when she is still married to Peter.
Adultery is the same in every language and has consequences in every culture or creed. The fact that people do it doesn't make it right. Alicia is "The Good Wife" like the Hilary C's and Maria S's of our reality!
Best elevator scene ever !!
Kalinda and Sophia scene... too much. As far as Will and Alicia go... As anybody has seen and perhaps experienced in real life... this would be the classic... "fun for a moment... then pay for it for the rest of your life." Her potential fling with Will will do nothing to heal her family... which is really her most important priority in the long run. So if she and Will go through with it, Alicia and/or her kids now enter an even worse personal hell than ever before.
I love everything about this show, from the writers to the actors who are sensational. The best show on television. I love it so much I hate when it ends. Keep up the wonderful work. You are all FANTASTIC!!!!!!!!!!
Why was the hotel booked? A convention for some Burn society! Will Alicia and Will "burn" for their soiree or is their passion so hot that even 7800$ can't put a damper on it? So how did Peter happen to have the glove? Turning over the glove was no slam dunk for exonerating the client so how do we give Peter so much credit for helping Alicia here. Plus, he intended for Will to get it, not Alicia. How can Alicia open his mail? Why does the judge "threaten" to uphold a possibly erroneous verdict no matter what the new evidence may show, in order to blame someone for the other judge's murder? How does an officer of the court sneak crucial info about the jury to Will to help his case and not get fired? How does Cary manage to be mailing a sweatshirt to his niece at just the right moment but if truly innocent, not show Kalinda the receipt? Kalinda could have easily called the niece to prove Cary's innocence. Perhaps Peter had Cary send the package and got the receipt from him. They co
@Bill..Sorry it looks like i offended you or something?? I just wrote my opinion and wasn't mean or anything..You have the right to your opinion and i have the right to mine!! Oh,and if you read well my post,i said it too that there will be a fallout from this next season! So i kinda agree too that there will be drama because of it.And i did say that i liked Peter just that i think the chemistry IN MY OPINION is better with Will.
So season three will move to Sunday night, bad move this will probably mean the end of the show. Sunday night has to manny hot shows that will bury this one, Wed would have been the better choice with an earlier start there isn't to manny hot shows on that night anyway. I think CBS knows that and is trying to keep up appearances for now so when they cancel it they come out smelling like a rose.
I disagree with those who thought Alicia should have waited until she got divorced. At first, she was only considered separating from Peter until she was questioned about divorce. Plenty of people separate without divorces and date and they aren't bad people. Whether or not Alicia was looking for an out in her marriage, she was genuinely crushed by Kalinda/Peter. She didn't fake those tears, so don't try to belittle her reasons for leaving Peter as her just trying to be with Will. Actually, I doubt she was going to sleep with him so soon, but she decided to be "selfish". Not to say that her actions will not have consequences, but that her life and marriage has been doing things for other people and not herself. She was busy protecting everyone and their image.
And so what if she pushed Peter out of the marriage. What has he actually done to show his regret for his actions? I know, jump back into running for State Attorney, which is a stepping stone for other things as mentioned. As
I loved the season finale.
I hate to disagree with all of those who point out that Alicia is still married and agree with those who concentrate on the fact that this is tv and a good story telling is what we really need, not an education on morals, have your own and be true to them.
I love that the “what if” is finally addressed. They kissed in an elevator, there are security cameras everywhere, they went public before they even discovered if it was worth it.
It was their moment, whether they took advantage of it or not, this means closure for something that was dragged on for two seasons. New dilemmas, new problems and desires await the future, I have no doubt, for this I am grateful.
I loved the way, the authors twisted the story, once again for us, with Peter one step ahead of the L&G team, helping without being acknowledged, that was a surprise.
Cary too, for that matter, looked more complex and mature.
In fact, that (for me) opens the game again...
Well kings you finally did it writing and directing a semi-porn about a wife and boss in a $7.800 a night room, i hope someone got a video of them and put it on youtube so everyone at the office can watch. I guess this now makes her a Mother of the year and him a Mother F..... that should go well with the rest of his throphys he has.
Maybe you all should writing a new episode for next season directly for the kids when they find out really what is going on with their mom and dad and how she made them feel like she doesn't care. We all know she needs help but shacking up is not one of them, I know people don't agree but seperation doesn't give anyone the right to get laid.
I guess I'm just too old-fashioned about the Will/Alicia thing. I think in the end she won't go through with it. However, I think it's interesting that her brother was babysitting and had previously lectured her on doing what she wants to do. She has a hard time letting go and in the end she'll regret this. This could also be the way she is able to work her way back to Peter. Tit for Tat. The Kalinda/Sophia thing could have happened over DNA results and didn't have to happen in bed. The suspense created and letting our imagination take over are way more interesting than having to watch it happen. This show and "Friday Night Lights" are two of the truely well-written, well-acted shows on TV right now. Unfortunately, Friday Nights is done. If you haven't watched it you are missing something special. I appauled all the people involved. These shows equal anything on cable right now.
One word about the possible ending, since we don't realllly know IF they did the deed: Tequila!
I thought the ending was great as a season finale, but I have my suspicions as to what might happen in the room. I think Will's silly girlfriend who likes to play games, will call and he will be torn about answering the phone or not...and in the end he will answer it.
Seriously - that's what this drama is so good at - doing the shades of gray that people, good for the most part, but imperfect still, do. The choices we make can often end up to be regrettable, and that's what the end of the show meant to me. Bad timing - but when is it ever good timing? When we choose to make it so. The elevator ride was the 'story of their lives' so far. Too crowded. Too distracting, too many doors opening and closing, passing them by. I loved that at some point up the hotel elevator, they made their decision to make the time their own. And so the irony inherent in the title of this show. We've been waiting for the irony for quite some time now.
Well SOMEBODY's finally getting around to getting together on TV - and isn't that what we live and breathe for, our favorite UST couples getting some? (Slight sarcasm).
Eyebrow (Ms Margulies' signature expression).
And. . . scene.
You all thought I was talking about Kalinda and Sophia. . .
Loved the last episode and this show in general. Why pass judgment on the characters? No one is 100% good/bad, notwithstanding the title of this show, Alicia is not an exception. Her actions make her HUMAN to me, I can't relate to a saint, but I CAN relate to her. Who wants to watch a goody-goody paragon who always does the right thing? Boring. And this show is anything but. It's so good to see Alicia take this risk, come hell or high water, whether right or wrong, there are no more what-ifs. There will be blowback next season -- that bellhop wink is a bad sign and I'm sure there were eyes watching that elevator -- I for one can't wait to see how it all plays out.
Great episode last night, can't wait for next season, wonderful acting and what great story lines. So glad moving to Sunday evening.
The season finale was awesome but I think we will find out at the beginning of next season that they end up not sleeping together because one of them will back off due to her marriage. It might shock us but it very well might be Will by saying he doesn't want her this way he wants it to be when she can be with him completely. I mean come on do you really think they would have just shut the door and that be it after 2 seasons of everyone wanting them together? Can't wait until next season but hopefully Peter will be off after next season seeing that since the very first show they introduce him as a "special guest star" & not part of the cast. I say get rid of him & finally put Will & Alicia together!
Loved this show so please CBS do not cancel it for next season. Please bring it back. You have canceled so many good shows the last couple of years that I'm beginning to be afraid to start watching the new ones because you'll cut them the next season (such as Moonlight). Loved the elevator scene and hope this little get together keeps on going. Love their chemistry together.
I think some are missing the point that the title "The Good Wife" implies that Alicia is the perfect model of the perfect human being. She is flawed and human as the rest of us. She was deeply wounded by her husband's infidelity. Of course, she was looking for comfort and she went for it in Will's arms-- someone who she's had residual feelings for for quite some time. Things happen. Let's see what happens next season.
society is so hypocritical! Alicia was the typical wife who caters to her husband's whims! She finally did something she wanted to do in her suppressed life. Now we are going to call her bad wife? I'm glad she did it and whatever happens, happens. I loved the ending and can hardly wait for next season.
I love "The Good Wife". If you are a wife whose husband cheated on you, then you can relate to her feelings. Her big hurt was finding out about Kalinda.
I, too, think that Alicia should have waited to be with Will — even though I applaud the idea of them as a couple. They've waited this long. Certainly they can wait until Alicia is divorced, and Will has officially broken it off with his girlfriend. Morality is something to be honored in our lives, not defiled, as the current world stream of conciousness would have it. The way to true happiness is doing whatever we do in a way that will not hurt others, but will rather uplift all involved because of our actions. It requires unselfishness — which is one of Alicia's greatest strengths — and is what makes us love her character. The story was great last night and even though fast-paced and causing us to "keep up" with what was going on in the various parts, all came together at the end when Peter tore up the UPS receipt. His action supported a moral sense of what was most right under the circumstances, and we applaud him for this moment of goodness in his character. Also, the Kalinda
Mel, your comments are typical of those who wanted to see Alicia hook up with Will. First, not wanting her to do that does in no way condone what Peter has done to Alicia. What Peter did was disgusting and he's was lucky Alicia didn't leave him flat when she found out about "hookergate." Second, I think Alicia threw Peter out when she found out about Kalinda because of the impact it had on her relationship with Kalinda and because deep down she wanted a reason to leave Peter and turn her attention toward Will. Peter was right. Yes, Peter lied to Alicia when she asked if there had been anyone else, but given who the person had been, telling the truth would have done a lot more harm than good and not just to himself.
As Peter said, for the last two years there has been a third person in their marriage and Alicia damn well knows that. Maybe he was off base about accusing her of sleeping with Will...but not by much. In fact,if Will had been in his office when she returned that night aft
I love this show. Yet, a lot of non-sequiturs. Why does a DA change a person's entire identity for a roll in the hay? That is not believable and leaves unanswered questions about Kalinda and Peter. I get that Will and Alicia were written to have chemistry. Know she has done the boyfriend of a "friend." Thus, very little rock throwing can be done in that glass house. She has done her boss when she should have been up for full partner. Are we allowed to say sh#T in your nest? I fear the offers to go elsewhere will need to be picked up next season. Plus, why is Gold seeking to have his offices in LG? He knows that Alicia is through with Peter by now. I would not even hope to massage that back together. Yet, his future as the state wide manager is dependent upon Alicia. Could he be so goal oriented that he threatens Alicia if she does not cooperate? Guess we will have to wait.
