The Good Wife > The Good Wife Round Table: "In Sickness" > Comments Page 2
I'm a Peter fan and don't care who doesn't like it ! I would rather have a cheater who is trying than an guy who will backstab you when your down, liars,theives and kneecappers plus alot messing around for 40 someyears doesn't set the relationship catagory as someone to get hook-up with where there are other family members to think of.
Remember, it's only TV drama! In real life she would probably choose neither of them! I think the cleverest thing about this show is that none of the characters are clear-cut. The scripts are excellent and the writers keep us guessing and haven't created simplified characters. One minute you have sympathy for one character and then the other. I like Will's character because of all he has done for Alicia since the show began and I think they are cute togther - she brings out the best in him. But, like any of us he has his flaws. Being a pretty ruthless lawyer he has a few more than most! I think the writers have deliberately made him flawed to make Alicia's choice harder and to keep the viewers on their toes. It would have been easy for them to make Peter the 'bad guy' and Will the 'good guy', but to their credit, they have refrained from doing that. I personally could never have gone back to my husband if he had betrayed me as much as Peter, but I also respect Alicia for stan
Ladies;; Do you want a man who is a fraud, liar, embezzeler, self-centered, kneecapper, womanizer,and thief, or one that cheats with other woman ? Who would make the best supportive person ?
In this day and age there is alot of single mothers out there, does anybody know why?
Believe it or not but most 2nd marriages for men work but for women they crumble does anyone know why ?
I'll await some answers, i believe they will be interesting.
I agree with @Melissa and @Laura.
And with regard to P and #, Alicia did ask Peter to come clear. She didn't want detail about the relationship, but for sure she was more than ready to hear about whatever was important with regard to their relationship.
And as for Will, he's the one who give her the opportunity to have a job when everyone was gossiping about her.
Did Peter tell Alicia about all the women he slept with while he had his affair? I dont remember seeing that. I remember seeing where she saw the blond hair woman who went to Peter's trial as the prosecutor's witness, as well as the videos posted online. Alicia herself didn't want to hear anymore details when Peter offered to tell her the rest of the story. He could have said he slept with Kalinda, but I dont think Alicia wanted to hear either.
Besides she and Kalinda weren't friends when Peter did Kalinda. So I really think Alicia reaction now is just a delayed reaction. And that's the reaction she should have taken the moment she heard about Peter's infidelities.
Anyway, I loved the way Peter said to Alicia "There was always three of us in this relationship". Now if you anyone you is old enough to remember when Princess Diana gave an exclusive interview about the breakdown of her marriage to Prince Charles - Diana used the exact words! There was always three of us in the mar
I am confused by the people who believe that Alicia is a horrible person for having kissed Will and having feelings for him, but then defend Peter and think Alicia should give him more chances...Ummm, who had extramarital sex at least 19 times here? Not saying Alicia is blameless but come on. There is a difference there. And I think Alicia is setting an even worse example to her children by letting them think that the way Peter treated her is ok. That will destroy her self confidence more than anything else. And if she decides to separate from Peter and date Will, well, that is her right. She doesn't need her children's permission.
Wow! I can't believe how many of you believe she should stand by Peter! What more does this man need to do to prove he is an unfit husband? As for Will, he might not be perfect and if they get together next season we might even see that, but he has treated Alicia with respect and honesty. I love the chemistry between Alicia and Will. I can't believe that in 2011, in an age of euality and female empowerment,that people would expect a wife to put up with a man like Peter! Full marks to CBS - the show is fantastic - great scripts, great cast - and much better than anything in the UK at the moment. Roll on season 3!
@Monica Rae, You are right with her and the all those happenings, she never really gave Peter a second chance that was an excuse to her kids about their father. SO all the boo hoo after finding out about Peter and Kalinda 2 yrs ago was a sham to get her real way.
Question; What has Peter done wrong since the beggining of this show ?
I was an Alicia fan till she started the flirting in the Heart episode with the kiss on Will that is when her second chance to Peter went out the window, she showed no regard of support or willingness to their marriage being very cold and evaseive to him. Also with the constant pushing of Kalinda and brother Owen about Will that didn't help either, Remember the night at the bar half loaded with Kalinda and Will called her sweetie talk at first.

In which scene did Julianna Margulies shine the most?
She was on fire the whole night. My favorite emotional scene was when she broke down after she just found out about Peter and decides to kick him out. Her acting was beautiful in the scene with her children but I can't stand her kids. Grace is spoiled and grating to listen to. She's a lot like Jackie when it comes to judging Alicia. And Zach's lack of intelligence is astounding considering who his parents are. So that those thoughts distracted me from the amazing talent of Julianna Margulies. My favorite court room scenes were when she went up against the doctor for his bias. She was amazing.
Is Peter sorry for deceiving Alicia yet again or for getting caught?
Peter's worried about Peter. He's worried that Alicia leaving him will cause problems for him at work. His taking in Cary is prove of that. He plans to hit Alicia were it hurts, her professional life. It's what made her strong enough to leave him.
Was Cary presu
It will never be over between Alicia and Peter. They love each other. The actors have so much chemistry. Will is an idiot. Josh Charles can't act. There you go, four reasobs why Alica and Peter will be together in the end.
Peter and Alicia marriage will not end, she can't stand alone without him. Yes her children are the most important part of her life but she better stop lying to them, it will come back and destroy her self-confidence as a mother and person.
She will start to see where she has gone wrong on a lot of the past and open her eyes to the future. It is always great to do a good job but you can't forget your personel side of the family.
I do think it's the end of Alicia and Peter's marriage. The name of the show is irrelevant; look to Cougar Town as a precedent. The original premise is a distant memory and yet the name remains.
@Jeffrey When Diane and Cary were engaged in negotiations for his return FIRST of his conditions was to be "senior" to Alicia AND earn more salary. And Cary wasn't just one of the other associates they were bringing back, because neither of them were able to cause them trouble or to gain experience and connections at S.A. (which should count as diversity of experience and be valued accordingly).
And Cary's right, position is way too important than money because if Alicia is senior to him it means that she will come up for partnership first. If she makes it, Cary may have to wait a few more years before a spot will open for him. Basically it means that even this time there won't be any competition because one of the contenders is a predistined winner.
The truth is that every career move the guy does it's for nothing because at the end his career is "always" up on "Alicia".
@Luc Cary asked for more MONEY than Alicia. Which Diane said would still stand. They were clear that they couldn't give him the title of 3rd year because it wasn't fair to the other associates they were bringing back.
LG did what was right for them at the time with Alicia/Cary. Sucks for Cary sure, but there was no screwing over done. It's not like he didn't know going in there was a chance he'd lose out.
THanks for the round table, I loved the episode and I loved all of your comments guys. Thanks.
As for Cary it's the first time I totally disagree with you guys. Sad ;)
He worked hard at L&G but it was for nothing, "just" because he couldn't compete with Alicia connections.
He worked hard at S.A. but it was also for nothing because, in L&G book, he has lost this working year for ever and he won't be never able to make up for it.
It's not Alicia responsability but I'm sure he thinks that at L&G Alicia will be always a factor which will influence his career badly.
And If economy works that way why did Diane offer him a senior associate position when she was leaving? I still don't get why NOW he's not worth the same position and why working at S.A. means nothing to them even if he was able to beat them on court several times.
I also think L&G offer it has to do with "bussiness" in the sense that they think he NEEDS a job and so they DON'T NEED to offer what he really DESERVES but just what they think it's better for them.
Did you forget what Cary asked when
