The Good Wife > The Good Wife Review: Losing Their Will > Comments Page 2
Follow Diane's lead, Alicia, you'll be fine. What a bunch of crap, with the comment of under the radar on Kalinda's case I would surely have my guard up before the knife was pushed in.
If anybody handed me that line I would have them investigated for underhanded wrongdoings, and would turn this over to the SA office for fraud actions.
Its about time for Alicia to see the light about whats going on in her firm from all angles and how they are using her for their gain and info that Kalinda is prying from her. Thats some kind of friend who keeps prying!!!!
The scene that he asked Alicia to sit down and let himself talk, it is the first time that he talk to Alicia with the intent for her to swallow more of his BS.
You know it is about time for the writers to grow Alicia up as a woman and not a little girl who stands around and let other people run all over her. From the start she has not changed at all, she shows so much inmaturity and lack of any selfrespect in herself.
Looking down the road towards the end of these series we all will be totally blown away on which way she goes and yes it won't be Will.
I love this episode, the writers are so clever to give what we expected but still make us woo - the leaving of Will.
In the very beginning of this season, we all knew that Will had done something wrong enough to be put in jail.Everyone, include Will himself, just kept fighting on It cos it was "15 years ago". It sounds like that was long enough to be forgiven. But, no, after the grand jury, then the Bar association, until Will facing Alicia, he knew that he was wrong. And, he need to face the result.
The scene that he asked Alicia to sit down and let himself talked, it is the first time that he talk to his truth self. Not others, it is Alicia.
I love the writers keep this episode in a very adult and professional mood - after they knew Will's decision, they just said nothing more cos it is his decision.
This show really keep wonder me, great work!
Love the show, but hate the direction the writers are taking it these days. It see,s like a lot of waiting.
They totally waste perfectly great talent with all of the stares and bogus plots.
Why aren't we seeing more of Peter? Isn't the show "The Good Wife"
I love Peter's interactions with ALicia.
Cary is another great talent that is being wasted.
Writers WAKE UP... You will lose your edge if you don't start writing more strategically and getting the full potentialout of your characters.
Can someone explain me the lack of Cary? Do the writers intend to do someting with the character, something more than 2 minutes scenes for episode, now that they've somehow closed that endless Will's plot? I'm really looking forward to find out what's up with him but it seems that writers don't want to please me.
And Eli was freaking hilarious and interesting back in seson 2. But now I find all his storyline totally disjointed from the rest and not so compelling. Making him a regular didn't pay so much.
Reasons for the gaps between shows: 1) the ratings have dropped; 2) the writers have to regroup as the script goes through multiple rewrites.
Did anyone notice how misleading the promo was for this episode? Diane tells Will to fight the disbarment and next we see Will leaving with a baseball bat. Suggesting that maybe he is going to lay some serious smackdown on somebody. Also if the brother is going to sue the computer guy for the death of his sister, he would need to show a death certificate. A person has to be declared legally dead before you can sue for wrongful death.
I love this show! but not happy lately with the story lines. It is becoming more like a soap opera.
Also I hate it being on Sunday nights. Never beginning at 9 pm. Makes it very difficult to dvr it.
Recalling Will's intrigue re a past dream goal of being baseball commissioner has me wondering if his departure carrying his bat and ball had more significance indicating his time focus during the next 6 months. At least one of the two largest looming issues causing rifts in Alicia/Will relationship development is less eminent since Will no longer is Alicia's boss during this time frame. Hopefully we'll see Alicia voice concern/comfort to Will's feelings due to this vast career blow in the next episode. I'm also so very concerned and disgusted with these too numerous weekly schedule interruptions. CBS should treasure and not abuse the good trafic increase The Good Wife has brought to their network.
I liked the case of the week. Between this case and the Bitcoin case, I'm impressed with how relevant the writers stay in the realm of technology.
I think Diane had some sneaky hand in this.
I don't trust her.
I too am tired of the constant interruptions of this show. Another 2 wks now.
I think Will and Alicia will eventually get back together, I hope so. I think a tax case with Kalinda sounds boring, but I'm sure its leads to more then just a tax case. I hope this show survives all its space inbetween episodes.
Guess who is going to get her ass in a very hot jam, thats right are girl Lea AKA Kalinda. Now Alicia will find out what realy was going on when she worked for the SA office and left with a name change from the past, it doesn't look like an one nighter to me more like trying to help a coverup that is now coming back bigtime.
For all you WILL lovers who think its over don't pop the cork yet, if the feds get wind of the judges involved with him he will go up the river for a good 10 to 20 yrs or more.
And by the way it was Alicia who broke it off with the school girl crap with Will, she knows deep down it was wrong and that she has no intention on making it a permanent thing. For one good reason that she knows her kids would not understand and would make her life a living hell. They have a deep love for their father no matter what you think of him plus so does Alicia, why do you think there hasn't been any divorce.
As for Alicia becoming a senior partner be serious with 3 yrs, the other partners would blow the roof off the firm and vote Diane out. It takes a good 10 to 12 yrs before any firm would consider that kind of decision.
Strange episode! What are the writers planning to DO with Will for the next six months?? I hear rumors that we'll be seeing a lot of him in jeans, though. That would be a nice eyeful. Especially if they fit him nicely over that magnificent ASSET of his. ;) I'll be looking forward to that.
What's the big excitement over Kalinda's tax file? Are taxes ever interesting? I'm underwhelmed at the thought of it...
I thought the whole disbarment threat was ridiculous and unfair. Wendy had no credibility at all, yet she was able to cause trouble for him, even after she lost in disgrace? But I hope this will shut up all the Will-haters who kept going on and on about his "dark past". Now it's all over!
Bring will back sooner. He is one of those that really make the show great.......
I love this show so much. I heart all the main characters.
I liked it how they made us care for the syrian rebel by making him an informant to Kalinda. When he was gone, it was different than hearing about all the people being killed every day. We knew him a bit. We cared a bit.
This episode deserves more stars than Matt gave it.
I hate M.Perry on this show.
@Melissa @Martinelli - Yes, yes, yes! For the love of Team Gardner, yes!
This episode was definitely a bit off-kilter for me, too, but I think mainly because I didn't really connect with their case this week. Of course, I was impressed that Kalinda truly does have connections everywhere and that Diane pulled a selfless move in going to Deerfield and saying Will was responsible for the pro-bono program. Every scene with Will and Alicia was glorious and I couldn't help but yell at my TV, "give this man a hug already!" He has had the worst year ever.
I think this episode served the purpose of advancing the story line just enough to get Will out of Lockhart Gardner and having Kalinda's tax file be passed to Alicia. After a three-week break, I think I was expecting a bit more... but with episode 16 on March 4, the creepy and quirky Colin Sweeney returns, so we're bound to be in for some good drama. I think what's most interesting is that we're going to see Will out of his natural habitat for awhile. This could be a great adventure!
I really hope Will will stay on the show, he is my favorite male character on the show. Also, I want Will and Alicia together. I hate his ex from last season.
I'm so tired of the snarky women in the DA's office - and what's gives with the now-fired special prosecutor being able to win after all. The whole thing involving Will's past misbehavior was way overdone and came to a fizzle conclusion. What's this with Kalinda's case? The dialogue was totally obscured by too-loud background soundtrack, so I missed whatever significance there was supposed to be. And - finally - the show is about to self-destruct with all the liberal-cause story lines. There's way too much social consciousness, left leaning, and completely obvious play to make the liberal point. Enough already - I watch TV to be entertained, not lectured to.
Will is going to have some fun with his ex. Alicia is going to work on Kalinda's case. We are going to find out more about Kalinda's ugly past. Diane is going to make Alicia senior partner.
I agree with Melissa on the fact that Alicia will be dealing with jealousy issues :)
Will's 6 month will be less because 6 month in a movie does never mean actually 6 month for us. They can jump in time.
The bottom line: Alicia and Will is going to realize they actually love each other and hook up again as partners.
@Melissa if thats what is going to happen then i will be ecstatic!!!! :)
They are not writing Will off, I think everyone needs to relax.
My personal predictions for Will's future is this: He hooks up with Tammy wanting more out of his life than work. Alicia is jealous, and Will realizes that Tammy is not The One. But being this show, neither one tells the other how they really feel. Power plays go on at work with Alicia possibly becoming a partner. Something happens where Will's 6 month suspension gets shortened and he returns to the firm early. Season finale is Will confessing to Alicia what he really said in the voice mail and how he feels about her and asking her to divorce Peter. But clearly I am way too invested in the show:)
I don't think that they're writing Will off. Based on casting information, it seems like his two sisters are coming into town, and also his love interest from last season will be back. So while we may see less of him, it's more likely that we'll see different aspects of will outside the walls of a law firm or a courtroom.
I also didn't realize when I first commented that the show would skip another week. So annoying. And also so annoying that last night's episode was delayed by 21 minutes.
