The Good Wife > The Good Wife Season Finale Review: Bait, Switch and Scheme > Comments Page 2
Good people take a break till Sept then you will see a brand new foremat that will thrill everyone, and yes there will be alot of Alicia and Peter together again along with the kids. So calm down and get ready what you have been seeing will be gone and people will be getting into big trouble.
So take care see you-all in Sept.
I loved the elevator scene! Will and Peter (awkward), door opens on Alicia (more awkward), then joined by Cary, Kalinda, and others.... all had ties during the past few seasons....I about died laughing...
...Just wanna say...Please, not Alicia and Peter...they suck together!!!
this was the season finale?? wtf?? It did NOT feel like one! I liked it as an ep but HATED it as a finale!
Bored now. I know that a mediocre episode of TGW is probably equivalent to other series' dramatic highs. But, the firm's financial troubles, along with the internal & external threats posed by other characters, are starting to feel very redundant. Can we please just get Lockhart Gardner back to kick-ass-take-no-prisoners legal territory, please? I'm tired of all the people lining up to take shots at Will, Diane & Company. And, for goodness' sake - don't tell me Every Single Class Action Suit is defended by either Louis Canning or Patty Nyholm! With their awful track record against LG, no one should be hiring them!
What was everyone expecting! I thought the show was fabulous as all the shows have been! Come on people -get off your high horses! This is the best show on T.V. I can't wait for Sept. and am so glad the show is returning! All actors - sses were superb this finale of season 3!!!!
There is a big difference you are describing and the real meaning of why they separated which she told the kids that they were separating. I have seen this in real life then mister line crosser showed up shortly afterwards, which proved to her daughter that mom can't be trusted and has lost the love of her child.
As the story goes they are separated and still married that makes a very big diferrence, and with the name Will being used to them would only start a hugh distrust towards her. Remember the family meeting after the Mock episode where she told them after Grace mentioned who's Will, that they had connection in college (BIG LIE).
Aside from teh romatic angels no matter which you prefer, did anybody ever wonder why we never saw Peter in court? Childs had been there in his time as SA, why never Peter? Would have loved that!
Also please why always the Kids? I have nothing against them but they are not small Kids anymore. I got stepfather when I was 16, my mother knew him for some time before they married. My father never stopped being my father and I would have never told my mother to stop. It does not make her a bad person, just a happy one! They are now married for more than 25 years and even if he would be not such a great guy I would still love him for making my mother happy! If I had a slight chance of this kind of love I would take any chance!
Everyone thinks Alicia is making a mistake leaning back to Peter, well let me say a few words about what has happened from the start.
To start Peter supposely had sex with ONE hooker several times and a questionable Kalinda which I think that didn't happen. Now lets take a look at Alicia's several rumps with Will, does that make for an even playing field. Even though they are now separated but still married the game is still the same and one persons wrong doesn't make it any better to cross the line with another.
Most of the difficulties that came out of this year came out because of that affair. So I think Will is wasting his time with a married woman and has crossed the line with Alicia. I think that is the tragedy of that relationship and she is moving on to make things work as promised and didn't live up to it in the past after the family meeting with the kids.
I sick of the on-going saga of the firm's financial woes. I can't believe any large law firm would be so poorly managed as to have a huge balloon payment looming and no hope of paying it off. I also think some of the evil characters are a little overdone, more comic book than serious drama. And what was that silliness with the annoying little kid roaming freely around the office in her little cart? No business office would permit that, especially when the mother is a venomous enemy as in this case. A responsible office manager would have told the woman to take her child and leave. And speaking of too much of good thing, how much more crazy stuff is going to come out about Kalinda? Most viewers seem to like her (I do), but after a while her shadowy life gets too much to enjoy. Same with Jackie - at some point, anyone with half-sense would neutralize that witch and get on with their life.
I am really dissapointed with the whole season 3. Not nearly as good as 1 and 2. Alicia is becoming borring being all right and moral, but now considering to go back to Peter? This puts a bad light to all hard working, fighting the world women.After everything she went through because of him she is even considering to go back? She sometimes looks like a robot now and I don't like that. Before, you could see some emotions from time to time and now not anymore. Will loves her a lot, no question about it, however, it makes him look week just to hang around and wait for her.Will should give her one more chance, very clearly and walk away for good if she doesnt respond. Also, I have a feeling that Alicia is supporting Peter not because of her believes but also she wants that status. Sad.
There is Philip Seymour Hoffman type under-acting. And there is the kind of performance we are treated with by some lead characters of this prime time hour-long drama on Sundays. We deserve better.
What did everyone else think? Am I expecting too much from a season finale? Which awkward elevator scene was your favorite? And which of the following developments has you more anxious for September?
I am with you about this season leaving several loose threads.
I love the elevator scene when Peter and Will arrived and Alicia was there to meet her husband. The looks all right were great.
Waiting for Matthew Perry to return for a true governor's race in the fall. Hopefully I will not be disappointed.
I agree with the reviewer also. This was an OK episode, but certainly not something you would expect for a finale. I did like Kalinda sitting at the door waiting for her husband, but I wish we had a little more back ground in the earlier episodes. Not just spring it on us at the end. I like this program, but have been disappointed in many of the episodes this year. They have been renewed, but if they keep this up, I don't see a season 5.
Love The Good Wife, but, I am sorry we have to turn it off when M. J. Fox is on.
Most of the difficulties that came out of this year came out because of that affair. So I think Will is truly in love with Alicia, and Alicia — if it were another time, another place, and she didn’t have two kids and a campaign that was being kicked off — she would reciprocate in the truest way. I think that is the tragedy of that relationship: They caught each other a little too late in life. That is all playing through their heads, and that is why Will asked, “Do you think it was a mistake" YES
May I say that I'm disappointed in this finale? I love The Good Wife (actually my favourite TV show) and I thought some parts of this episode were brilliant (Jackie and Eli / Patti Nyholm and Louis Canning). But overall, the story was not believable. And I was pretty bored by the end of the episode.
Hope things will get better next season!
It's about time for the writers and producers get together and put together a storyline that makes sense. After 3 full seasons its time to s--- or get of the pot, I think it is evident that there is still a hugh love between Alicia and Peter and that the kids would not put up with any fill ins that would shine light on mom's infidelity that she has hidden from them.
The writers still have Alicia in the same spot as in season 1 as the doormat to the rest of the firm, and a pong to Dianne and Will's underhanded uses on her as a lawyer that will lead to a disbarrment when she is so naive.
I didn't like this episode. Don't get me wrong, was a solid episode with funny scenes (Peter and Will on elevator? And then meet up with Alicia? How good was that?!) but the story was all over the place.
The writers are making Alicia more confuse and unfocused by episode! She is becoming boring, because she want to live by those rules and letting good things (like Will, mostly) pass by.
Those kids are adolescents now, they shouldn't be asking for their mommy and daddy be together forever, in light of the events. Also they are made in a very boring way. Come on writers, none of you have kids? Interesting ones?
Kalinda is showing herself very slowly and, like herself, in a grey way. So, all this trouble because of a very dangerous husband? Let's see..
Always a pleasure see "Pati" and "Mr. Canning" on scene.
Things do not look good in office, again...
Despite this mixed stories, I liked the season. Not the best season, but still.
I think the writers a
I am also intruiged by Kalinda and her SL with her dangerous husband.
I really want Alicia with Will too, in a mature way, where both make place for each other. That would be wonderful. I don't think she can ever trust her husband again.
I find the children boring.
I've never encountered so many loose ends at the end of a season and several were big surprises to me, i.e. Kalinda's husband. Yet, the finale left me riveted with interest and I will be waiting for next season's premiere. Leaving Alicia standing on the doorstep made me think that she will go back in the house, eat pizza and probably resume living with the family. I'd prefer to see her work it out with hubby. I don't like the mother-in-law story line at all. Re Kalinda and her husband? I was relieved when Kalinda unpacked and I felt better for Alicia. I'm more interested in that story line than any of the others. Re the finances of the firm? I don't really care, but don't want Alicia to be out of a job. She's really the only one I trust and/or care about there. Well... Eli Gold too. Any character Alan Cumming plays is all right with me. He adds needed humor to the show.
I think last night's finale was very pleasant. Yes it wasn't as dramatic as the last two season finales but it definitely left me wanting more. I liked the elevator scene with Will and Alicia and there are clearly unresolved issues between them but I kind of think Will walked our of the elevator feeling angry and used.
This episode brought things to the forfront on a lot of situations, looking down the road we can see that Alicia is not going to move on with yesterdays news (WILL) that boat has sailed. As for her kids I know alot of people don't like them but they are a big part of her life and she isn't about to kick them to the curb. Then there is Peter who has been very up front since the start but has taken her so long to realize she has made a very big mistake that could destroy the whole family if she wakes up, forget the mother-in-law revenge and make up.
Now onto season 4 Kalinda it seems is going to get herself in big trouble, we will see. There seems to be coy as to why Cary is back at L&G, this seem to be an undercover mission for the SA office.
Overall, it was a solid episode. Did not expect that shocker at the end where Nyholm and Canning stole Edelstein from under them. I wish they had followed up on Kresteva's story arch; feels like the last few episodes were jumbled in order. On another note, this season had one less episode than the first two seasons (22 compared to 23), and I had a feeling that TGW would need one more episode this season to completely satisfy all my questions. I wish that were the case.
As I look back on the season, it definitely hit its normal excellent strides, yet faltered in more places than usual. But TGW is still without a doubt the best drama on television right now. And I think season 4 will be just as spectacular as season 2 was. The first season of the show left many questions to be answered, and most were resolved in the next season. If the same pattern follows, we could be in for a real treat.
