I am so impressed with the writing! excellent! Will and Diane in the last scene of Parenting... Diane thinking he broke up with Alicia...saying she'll get over it and Will agreeing. So sad, implying that he won't. I hope she ends up with Will, he has loved her since college. Chris Noth is such a hottie!! His character Peter's long-time cheating makes him a failure as a husband, not to be trusted. Hope to see more of Diane and her beau McVeigh.

1. I loved the last scene between Louis Canning and Alicia. And this may be a weird choice, but I liked Kalinda and Grace scene. I can't wait for Alicia and Kalinda to rekindle their friendship but I thought it was very in character for Kalinda to tell Grace not to tell Alicia.

2. No. If the writers felt the need to break them up (I'm not sure why), there were so many other ways they could have done it. I hated they made it sound like Alicia had to choose between Will and being a good Mom.

3. Yes ! I'd love to see Alicia go work somewhere else. (On the other hand, there would be too many stories to fit in 42 minutes then...)

4. Matt said it : "It simply came across as a contrived plot device to force Alicia to split with Will". But Julianna Margulies was great (as always).

To put everyone at ease Alicia made the right decision, she doesn't love him and he thinks he's got a hot one to fall all over. When it comes out that he is involved in a hot bed of curruption we will see the other side of her, don't forget he is hiding al this from her and him and Diane are floating in the same boat along with the firm.

1. Alicia and Canning. I love it when MJF guest stars in episodes because he's just fun to watch. Their dueling and then his supporting her, then back to the dueling.

2. I like Will and Alicia together...but for Will's sake, yes. For the reasons Christine mentioned. I like Will and Alicia together but I hated seeing that Will was more invested in their relationship then ALicia was. It was almost intriguing seeing the reversal there because usually they depict the guy as not being invested and only into the sex. I actually kept feeling bad for Will when I seen them together. They aren't in the good place that they need to be right now.

3.Yes. She should, it'd probably be beneficial for her, but it would make things sooo interesting. I'd love to see for example her and Will squaring off against each other in a court room. Or see how the D.A's office changes if she isn't there any more. I mean the entire dynamic of the show would be thrown gloriously off balance if Alicia weren't working at Lockhart & Gardner.

4.Lame. I wish I could say I was worried but I wasn't,and a really, really bad part of me was a bit gleeful. The only thing cool about it was that Kalinda, as was expected by myself, was the one to track her down. Alicia had been somewhat cordial with Kalinda for some time now, so the sudden reemergence of the iciness and the lack of her even attempting to use Kalinda, L&G's BEST asset was ridiculous. I didn't like the purpose it served, it served to break up Will and Alicia and they could have did that any other way. I did like that Kalinda looked fab in the scenario and Canning was a blast to watch going from rival to support within seconds.

What's ahead....Kalinda, Peter, Matan and Cary all have the goods on what Blake said in his interview with Matan and so does Andrew Wiley to some extent. Once Alicia, who also has some of the information, is clued into the investigation she and Kalinda are going to use what they have for leverage. Wendy Scott Carr will be eager to blemish Peter's or his wife's reputation so elevator footage will figure for sure. But, Peter will have to call off the investigation once he realizes how it all fits together and Kalinda can use what she has as well to give Will some room to navigate. That will all unfold over time but will be fun to watch.

I agree with Hong; Kalinda didn't call once she'd found Grace because she knew Alicia never answers Kalinda's calls. And Grace's phone was dead. So I think that was reasonable.

Christine: Thank you for responding - and yes, I do think your explanation makes more sense - fingers crossed for an A/W reunion which she gets her life in order!

What broke me up was the last line, when Will repeats 'Yeah. SHE'LL get over it'. (But not him.)

And, despite his denial, Louis Canning is totally devoid of ethics. Compared to him, L&G are saints---a much better fit for Alicia.

To Melissa & AD:

I can't respond for my colleagues but here's my explanation for saying that Alicia made the right choice in breaking it off with Will after backing the couple from the start...

I love Alicia and Will together. I think they make a fun, sexy couple but Alicia doesn't seem ready to take it any farther than afternoon quickies and they both deserve better. I believe Alicia needs to deal with her marriage and I don't think she can do that with Will on the side. The guilt and anxiety just eat away at her.

Once she finally divorces Peter and can be honest about a new relationship I'd love to see these two give it another go. I've got my fingers crossed the writers bring them back together sometime in the not so distant future.

I hope that makes some sense.

1. Kalinda and Grace in the elevator . Anytime you can pull off a Grace ,"and I didn't call her 12 times the phone was in my back pocket, I butt called her.." Who doesn't love a butt call..

2. Yes, is the right answer for her character. No , for the viewer as that last scene was amazing.

3. Absolutely ,more MJ...

4. Lame.. As I actually sussed it out. Not to mention religion again, just bad TV.
