The Good Wife > The Good Wife Review: Not So Graceful > Comments Page 2
Redrav, you really think that Peter has made amends??? How? She supported him through his campaign including doing the interviews and speaking to the reporter to save the campaign, she supported the family financially and she kept the family together. What has he done to make amends? Lie about Kalinda, go after her firm and boss and...???? I can't think of one thing that he has done for her. Will Gardner has been a good friend and boss, hired her many most firms would not, provided support and friendship during trying times and the possibilities of a relationship. Just don't get what there is to criticize there.
Another new name John (Blindfolds off.) You know this broken record needs to be used as a frisbee, we are so tired of you with this oneway outlook. You mean like Will the rat who was out banging his co-worker, you know a long time playboy never changes his stripes he jumps from one to another and nobody knows. I'm glad she dumped him, now she needs to change firms to.
"a long time playboy never changes his stripes"
You mean like Peter, the rat who was out banging hookers and co-workers, while his "good wife" waited faithfully at home? Peter cheated on her AT LEAST nineteen different times, all while he was married.
Take off your blindfold. It's time you got a clue.
I don't want to throw dirt on your opinion but they don't love each other, Alicia is only playing around to find out what went wrong in her marriage. plus I know from experience lawyers mated don't make good couples to much interference and messing around at the office.
No please, Will is the romantic love, Peter is just a conservative past. they have to speak each other, but that's real love and natural sexual relationship. I agree, I will not see the fiction anymore, without that love! Ciao
@T.H.Press. Get a grip on reality and real life. You're going to stop watching the show if Peter and Alicia gets back together, or if Will and Alicia don't get back together? Why? Peter cheated, yes, but he has since made amends, and they can have a good life together. Alicia is only going to have problems being with Will, problems with Diane and the firm, problems with Peter, problems with the kids, and all she and Will are doing is sneaking around and having "chemistry-less" sex. Man, I felt more chemistry between her and Peter when they were in the room hugging and crying because of Grace, than I've felt between her and Will since they got together. You can stop watching if you want, but this show still has lots of fans and I'm sure we'll do okay without you. It's not always about what one wants; sometimes it's about what is best, and for now, it's best that Alicia and Will not be together.
I was very disappointed and surprised that Alicia chose to quit her romance with Will. Having started this, I'd hoped they'd do well. Clearly, Will and Alicia love each other but have bad timing since their law school days. This couple could make a mature (and very hot!) married life together, and I like happy endings. Bad drama; good life. Will Gardner is the "Hamlet" of the show -- introspective and thinking over this way and that way. Will's longing for Alicia is part of his longing to be a better man than he's been -- to never again "feed the rat," in the stinging words of one of his exes. For Alicia, ending the affair is her "Dr. Laura" moment, putting her kids first. To Peter, Alicia has only been a political prop, camouflage, part of the political candidacy package. I hope when Alicia realizes that Will both loves her and needs her in order to be that better man he wants to be, she will resume their love affair -- but this time without the deceit, hiding, subterfuge.
No please, i am Paola from Italy and I can't stand the brake up between Alicia and Will! Please, Kings, think about it!
Alicia realizing her affair has taken over her ability to focus approaches Will and states “I’m sorry. I can’t, that was the best part to see her dump this guy who was leading her down the dirt road with no return. I know alot of people think he's a prince but a long time playboy never changes his stripes, I know I once had one who played on my emotions and told me all that love crap and still found time to tap somebody else on the side. Oh ya he also was my boss, I got fired !!!!
Finally an episode where there was no gutter crap, its about time Alicia grows up and takes responsiblity for her family and not the office BS. Get as far away from Lockhart&Gardiner firm and don't look back, put all the pros and cons on the table then decide what you want to do yes or no about your marriage. Peter might have let you down in the past but how about since, there is no future with the old college dude he doesn't have the gonags or backbone.
Its your life make the right decision !!!
Two weeks was a long time to wait for this episode and it disappointed a little.
As others have said, it was contrived in many ways - Eli with nothing to do, Kalinda finding time to look for Grace, the fundamentalist Christian academic (if those aren't all contradictory terms) in the same week Grace gets baptised, Michael J Fox doing his nasty lawyer bit, pretending to sympathise and help but just looking for an opportunity to root around in Alicia's bag.
Will is in turmoil. Maybe he is realising just how immoral and unjustifiable his work is and so his life. Hope he devotes himself pro bono. Alicia isn't going to find happiness ...
Still ultra watchable.
I love this show because of the amazing acting. The Grace storyline was a bit much. Ship her of somewhere ... anywhere. I love the ending when Diane tells Will to get over it and he answers.. "she will". He realizes he loves her and his face said it all. That's what makes this show so great. However what I love most is that there are so many gray areas that relate to life. Even though my preference would be for Alicia to stay with Will because it's who has the most chemistry and you can tell their feelings for each other. Peter on the other hand made his mistakes as many men and women everywhere can relate to or else their wouldn't be so much divorce. Even though they are just characters on TV we still have to see some mirroring of real life or we wouldn't be sucked in to watch it every week. It's still my favorite show to watch every week because of the gray area problems they face. You don't know what you would do if your spouse slept with a hooker or someone you considered your
Love this show.........I think Alicia finally needs to close the book on her and Peter and get a divorce.......of course, they'll always have some sort of relationship because of the kids.......just not a romantic one......
I do agree that the case plots are taking a back seat a bit this season.........
Good call on "contrivances" and "concocted drama." But it wasn't just this episode. It's what The Good Wife is all about. This show, which is filled with talented actors, is horribly written. And it is a damn shame, because The Good Wife should be as good as people pretend it is.
LOVE, love. love this show. Although the Grace story line was a bit over the top, and I am tired of the religion story line, the acting was incredible.
Heart stopping and moving.
I think Will and Alicia have hot chemistry, but for all the reasons stated in the review probably not best for them to continue the relationship... at this time. That sexual tension is not going to go away and will continue to make all of their encounters interesting.
So much to say about this episode, and the characters and actors who play them.
Kalinda rocks as always. Eli is so damn good in all his scenes. Diane has all the right sharp edges. Smart multifaceted characters. Looking forward to the next chapters! (and yeah- send Grace to boarding school!)
So Alicia needs a break! Dialog re it's too much does not necessarily mean Alicia is out of touch with her feelings for Will. I believe the writers will regroup the situational conflicts and issues in Alicia's life environs. The river of love between Will and Alicia has been made too strong to subside.....only the cource can be diverted now. Their love has an ongoing force of its own. Hang on Will.
Alicia's character is amazing. A smart, liberal women that is trying to do the best for her family. I'm glad the relationship with Will is over at least for now. It doesn't seem like they have much chemistry to me. She has far more chemistry with Peter which seems to be the villain of the story. He maid a big mistake and is paying for it. I understand if Alicia never forgives him as the smart modern woman that she is, but I don't think Will is the right choice. Doubt that the writers will give up on this relationship but in my opinion it doesn't work. It has made the show dull ever since it stared in season 3.
Finally the writers got the message and broke up the office trash, after reading all the reviews I didn't hear anyone say Will broke it off with Alicia. She broke it off he didn't have the gonags to tell her the spineless liar, the talk she had with Lous Canning (micheal J Fox) made alot of sense to her regarding her life and not who everyone thinks it should be. I hope she goes with his firm before the train wreck of Lockhart&Gardiner goes under and people end up paying the ultimate price. My hats off to her now she might start to be a mom again and also a person of high morals.
I agree wholeheartedly. I love Alicia and Will together. The screen chemistry is magnifiicent. I don't see that will Peter. Plus, when is with will I think we see her true personality. With Peter she seems to shrink.
The Good Wife has become The Weak Wife. This show has become a soap opera with so many subplots that the case of the week, which Alicia was great at winning, is pushed to the sidelines. She is oblivious to everyone and everything that is going on around her. She should have divorced Peter; should have made it known they were separated; should have gotten her mother-in-law out of the picture; should have been honest with her children. She was a strong woman and a good lawyer when this show started. Now she is being protected by everyone and knows nothing. Even in court she is not effectual anymore. This was a good show when it started. Right now the only character that has stayed true to form is Kalinda, a great role done by a great actress.
I feel like Alicia's kids are old enough to not to need her watching them all the time. She's already been the housewife I hope she doesn't take the job to be at home more, this is her time to have some fun. Poor Will, when Diane said "she'll get over it" I'd bet he was thinking yeah, but I won't.
This is hopefully not the end of Will and Alicia but the distraction of it and the fact that she is keeping something from her kids made for a pressure cooker for Alicia as a mom. When she finds out that Peter is going after Will she will rethink her role. And, he needs to take some initiative and let her know that he is not interested in a casual relationship but a committed one. The sadness that she conveyed he felt and he knows why she is stepping back and needs her to given the stakes at work and with the investigation. Lots ahead there. Still think Wendy Scott Carr is going to reveal some footage in the elevator from last season and Andrew Wiley same. Andrew Wiley also knows about Peter, though, so that should make for some interesting dynamics......sure to put Peter in the hot seat and out of running....Liked the episode and Will's gutsy move with Eli and think that something will heppen soon between Alicia and Kalinda including Kalinda encouraging Alicia to give her relatio
as a response to some coments: Alicia and will loved each other but the conditions they were separated them. its heart breaking but when you have children and whole your life, your children's life and your lover's life destroid, you have no choice but to stop everything and go back to your first chosen life. its wrong in many ways, and I wish it were more easier for everyone to start a new life but the reality speaks differently to all of us. Great acting from everyone but especially from julianna, she deserves an EMMY. great writing too. Love this show.
No, no, nooooooooooo. Alicia don´t say goodbye to Will, you cannot live without him..... I hope they get back together again :-)
