I like the way WSC went after Will, he needs to be taken down along with his backstabbing partners Dianne and Lee.
Can't wait till next episode when Will gets slammed by the review board and suspended from practicing law.
I loved this episode. I loved watching the indictment fail. I agree, though that at this point the whole Wendy Scott-Carr going after Will thing needs to stop and the show can focus on other topics.
Who says Alicia has to get tied up with anyone ! She doesn't need neither one, one might be a liar but the other is a player and she doesn't need any of that crap again neither does her kids.
In the Alicia/Peter scene he was right on when he hit the nail on the head about her relationship she was hiding from, what Peter had done way back is water over the damm that she agreed to. The Kalinda thing is still up in the air about the real truth, future episodes is bringing her husband out in the open and we will see what Peter did to help her.
If Peter ever went up against Alicia in a court case she would get slammed but good, her case handleing is very poor and has a very low win rate.
I really enjoyed this episode, especially seeing the way the characters interacted with one another.
I want Alicia with Will. Alicia, Peter and Will are far from perfect but Peter cheated on her, lied to her and publicly humiliated her. Will has been more honest about his past and given her space when she's asked for it. I want them to end up together.
I loved Alicia and Peter's exchange. I'm glad Peter admitted to investigating Will because of his relationship with Alicia. If this "love triangle" is going to work, we need to see more of Peter and more interaction between him and Alicia.
I hope we get an episode with Alicia and Peter against in each other in a case....and I don't mean their divorce (not yet anyway, but hopefully that too!). That would be interesting to see how they use known weaknesses against each other.
Everyone keeps putting poor Alicia on a petistill, she is as bad as the rest of them but can't see it. All this lying to her kids is as bad as it gets (Mother of the year).
What she should do is get out of there and get a real job where she can be a lawyer and mother again, and maybe a wife again which she lied about to her family on what she thinks went on.
She doesn't need people using her as a puppet as been happening all along.
Great episode. I enjoyed it enormously. Loved the various testimonies and how Alicia walked out. Excellent.
I thoroughly enjoyed the episode. I loved David Lee's testimony, and his tiff with Eli. It aught to be a good showdown between the two, mainly because both are good at dirty schemes!
The actors and actresses made the most of the script and I agree; many performances stole the scene!
Bring on more, guys! I loved the way Wil made WSC look idiotic and inept doing her job.
Hence, Peter letting her go.
Congratulations to the writers of The Good Wife. You have an intelligent and adoring fan base. But you are getting lazy here...you need more in-depth research of current affairs, you need Sorkin-esque oratory firepower, you need multi-faceted stories when it comes to minorities (goodness, this is Chicago!!)
Yes, the title is The Good Wife and it's primarily about, well, a good wife. So her profession and the cases are secondary. I assure you the rating will drop for you may not see it coming, but the window for you to improve is closing.
Another good episode last night. Anika Noni Rose as Wendy Scott-Carr is a person I love to hate. I loved how embarrassed she was after Will was on the stand. Diane, David Lee, Kalinda, Alicia, and everyone else were, as usual, very good. I love the way it ended. I'm glad Alicia appreciated what Kalinda did, and I hope they become friends again. I like Kalinda's loyalty. I didn't like her at first because I thought she was too conniving, but I love her now! Good writing and acting. I always look forward to Sunday nights so I can see "The Good Wife." Keep up the good work!
It was a great show last night! All the characters had good dialogue and the acting was terrific. I'm glad that WSC finally will be gone. Cary and Eli were good, so was Kalinda as usual. I liked Alicia walking out of court! She shouldn't tell her kids about Will, it's none of their business because it's over and it would hurt them for no reason. She has the right to privacy. Peter is still a bum! and I hope Alicia never takes him back. I like Will and hope he remains at the firm but not with Alicia. It's a shame the SAG Awards ignored this wonderful ensemble.
I can't wait till the day comes that Alicia grows up and smells the roses about how she is being played by the Lockhart&Gardiner firm all of them (DIANNE,WILL,DAVE LEE) they all need to be disbarded.
They think she can keep the SA office off their backs about the underhanded way they rip off their clients, this fast track stuff is nothing but a bunch of BS.
She should try opening her eyes and see how bad she looks in the eyes of her family, they have tried over and over and maybe this week a little spark but slipped back into the hold and lying mood again.
Next episode when Will gets grounded by the review board with the hopes of disbarment.
I was so wishing this episode motivated Alicia's attitude toward activating the divorce proceedings. Peter's character is so munipulative and non trustworthy to me which so moverides any of his physical appeal apparant yet to but a few. Will's demeanor and sensitive treatment towards Alicia holds the major glue and interest in story development. Alicia's awakening needs more focus as she and we all know what a good litigator and selflish lawyer she has shown herself to be. Perhaps during the upcoming vacation she will reveal to her kids some of her truer feelings and backstory re Will and herself. I'm liking the kids more as their support of Alicia's needs and wellbeing receives more attention.
Loved the episode. Totally enjoyed how Will demolished WSC when he took the stand. Loved his little jig with Diane at the end and also his hugging Kalinda. LOVE Josh Charle! He is awesome.
And it is Peter who needs to be made to face the consequences for what he did to his family and for his misuse of the SA office. Will that ever happen?
David Lee is hilarious and is fast becoming one of my fav characters on the show.
What is wrong with Peter? He seems to be in denial about his part in the breakup of his marriage. His anger at Alica about Will is just too over the top.
Ok, for all you harping on why it won't be back on till the 19th...well, next Sunday is the Super Bowl(SO GLAD FOOTBALL IS OVER), and then the next Sunday is The Grammy's on CBS.......so that is why it won't be back till Feb 19th......
On to the show..........LOVED the spisode.....excellent all the way around......LOVED it that Wendy Scott Carr's little scheme backfired on her!!!!!! ........Was shocked Kalinda let that girl slap her........so what if Alicia tells the kids about Will....it's not going on anymore......
So Wendy Scott Carr is a sore loser and reports Will to the bar........wonder how that will play out?
I loved the way Will kept his problems to himself and then let Alicia know that he was sorry he was in a mess of trouble but not sorry for why the State's Attorney was coming after him. She should recognize what this means. In addition, it would have been good to include the role that Blake played in all of this. Diane was great in this episode as was Kalinda and David lee. Eli is being a bit of a pain but entertaining. Tell the kids and tell Peter the truth about when the affair took place. And, understand that a good friend hired you and has stood by you for a long time in the face of tough odds - and Kalinda is redeeming herself big time - nice play with the thank yous, Alicia. great episode, disappointed with the three weeks off when the adds said leading up to January that there were four new episodes, blah, blah
An excellent episode but the writers have to dig deeper into their storylines, you are stopping half way and leaving everyone in the dark.
The best part was when Alicia asked Peter to stop the grand jury investigation and he laid it on the table the right way and she knew it. When she was questioned and several things came out a very deep feeling came over her about the kids, quick get home to be a good mom and tell but Kalindas call put her back in the hiding mood again and lying to her kids.
During her conversation with Peter he told her about sleeping with Will that was way before her jury apperance so Peter already knows.
Loved this episode.The debacle at the hearing didn't surprise me at all, specifically because of all the publicity of the election, the most misinformed and thus neutral juries were chosen.
Subject Peter, I'm not sure which show you're watching because Peter never admits to anything unless he can't lie anymore. Did he admit to being bribed with a diamond bracelet or get Alicia to hide that mess for him ? Didn't e just strong-arm that private school principal into letting his kids in ? And what's this bogus fishing expedition against Will on the taxpayer's dime about, but not wanting Alicia to get on with her life without him?
Really love this show the acting and actors and actresses are great and strong characters. Please let Will really win. He is a character I like. No more indictmens for Will please!!!!!!
I am go glad to see Wendy Scott-Carr time is over. She is very underhanded, and seems to know it all. It was a pleasure to see her fired very handily by Peter. She was quite shocked to see the grand jury panel go against her.
I love Cary's character. He really looked ashamed when Alicia was on the stand.
I loved this episode--again I like see all the characters (not just WIll & Alicia). I hope they drop the WIll basketball/judges story line...kind of a snooze. Get away from all Will & Alicia storylines, enjoy when others are involved.
I loved loved loved this episode - even if some things don't make sense! I just don't care - I look forward each week (why all the delays between shows lately?) to ending my weekend watching this show - each and every character last night was terrific - even the new blonde - the scenes with Peter were dynamite - I never want this show to end - love Will, love Eli, love Cary, love Will's attorney, Alicia, Diane, Kalinda etc - not so much the kids or Jackie - oh, well -
I thought this was a really good episode. I think the private investigator who uses his child to do his job is a slime bucket. I used to like him, now he just gives me the creeps. I love Peter, he has such a strong presence even when he has little screen time. Cary is a favorite of mine also. He has a conscience and it seems he really cares about the people he used to work with. All around good show. All the actors do a great job.
Uh, did you not stay tuned for the preview of the next episode - Yes Miss Scott- Carr goes to the bar association - the whole preview was about how Will can't practice law while it is under review.
@Meres - I agree 100%. It was an excellent episode. I love the teamwork, I love Kalinda, Will, Alicia. Wendy made a fool out of herself again, that's great! That's what she deserves. She would do anything to climb up but has no brain to do it. Playing dirty is not always paying out.
I think Alicia should tell the kids about Will. They would understand, besides I think Zack knows already.
