The Good Wife > The Good Wife Season 4: What's Ahead? > Comments Page 2
you people realize this is just a show right?
There is one thing I do not get in all of this W/A or P/A discussion. Why is she bad / I do not wan to use a stronger word) for having an affair with a man while she is sperated but still married.
At the same time it seems to be ok that Peter had at lest 2 women while they where not only be married, but still toghether.
He may regret it and he may try to make it up to her and it does not matter that I go for the W/A thing.
I really think it is sad that what makes a man a hero and gets a slap on his should for been such a st*d, the woman get the lable sl*t for not even the same level.
Don't get me wrong I am all about family and to stick to your commitment, but it should be allowed to be a person as well and if I bring up a show with what is supposed to be strong lead female character it should be displayed this way. I do not mean she should go 'flexible' or let herself get picked up in a bar every weekend, this would not fit the character they displayed for her, but what we saw
For all you W fans it will not happen thosr days are gone and the future is bright for the family together again. As you said about Peter did not just cheat ONCE, he screwed a hooker over and over again, as in season 3 she did the same thing with Will and kept it a big secret till her conscience took over and she grew up and opened her eyes.
I know you would say she was separated but she still broke the 7th and 10th commandments while still married.
As we saw from the finale of 3 there is a big change coming and W fans won't like it.
I hope season4 will allow Alicia and Will time to develop a honest, open and caring relationship. I think she really LOVES Will and that she is scared, confused after being betrayed NOT once but twice by Peter and Kalinda. IT was more than just sex, she was happy with Will...sexy and confident! :)
Peter did not just cheat ONCE, he screwed a hooker over and over again! He used his office and power for sex with Kalinda too. I doubt that it ended with her. He is selfish and he threw away his marriage and trust for that. He could not even confront Will like a man, he hid behind his office again...his vindictive azz could NOT stand the thought that his wife could be happy with someone else. I find it ironic that THE CHEATER demands loyalty from everyone else!
Alicia needs to continue to grow and move forward, she is so much more than JUST the good wife that the show begin with she is a survivor....strong woman!
As a first timer to the comment board I see alot of pros and cons about this show which I like but people have to realize this is a make believe program and the writers are trying to put forth a good performance by everyone in the cast. The only part I can't get a handle on is the title it doesn't fit the show, if they want her to be the good wife then write it that way and stop all the fooling around.
PS THATS MY TAKE ON THIS SHOW.
You know the Governor of Illinois has his residence in Springfield, right? SO if Peter wins and Alicia will be still with him they have to move, she needs to leave L/G and that is the end of the show, cause all the main characters are in Chicago.
I never said that Peter is a bad, never said that and it is not as he is shown on the show.
If you do not have a family it does not mean you do not know how to value one.
There are only a few people who like W/A who are really write bad things about Peter and this is not right, but most people who doe not like the idea of W/A reduce the character of Will to something even much lower and even if I would not like the idea I can not see this in the show
Sure wills past is not squeaky clean, but neither is Peters and this makes things so interesting!
What I find most surprising in all of this discussions here on this board is as soon as anybody says something I would like to see more W/A only a few hours later comes a comment from someone going against it.
Some of them are for sure the same people. It is just plain boring.
Why not some up with something original?
Posing as an insider does not help, even Chris Noth said he does not think that P/A will be together again.
Why not thinking about all the other nice possibilities?
I would love to see more nice case in court, I think this is still a big part of the show.
Also I would really like to see Peter in court, like Childs.
There are so many other things that make the show for what it is.
I totally disagree with your idea that Will is the perfect fit, he doesn't have any family values in his life style. If things don't go his way he finds ways to get rid of them, Alicia is to much of a women to get hung up on his way of life which she sees from his demeanor.
Plus everybody keeps using Peter as a slim, take another look and watch her in season 4 on which side of the street she will be on. She wants him to be the Govenor thats is in her lifestyle, but with Peter being honest it will be against him and might hurt his chances.
In S4 we wish to see Alicia give herself (and her long-standing unforgettable appeal and connection with and for Will) an open honest opportunity to develop. Their relationship has so many more dimensions that just amazing sex. Will most always seems to have her interests and concerns in his heart as shown by his actions. Peter uses Alicia mostly for his own political benifit, ego, and to paint his false familyman and unlived values. His separation confession benefited his would be political image of running a clean honest department as much as any other motive to assist Alicia. Alicia seems happy and growing in loving relationship with Will as even noted by her teenagers. I do agree with "bytheway" and the cracked mirror alegory. Alicia's age and education would better prioritize her heartfelt values and real family members' present needs rather than the 50's family beyond self always good wife personna. Open communication and trust issues need to be put on the plate existing fo
Someone with a dark past is not the right one to be around, they will always be deceving you and you have no idea what went on in the past 20 yrs.
As for cheating once doesn't make you a repeater and by the way he didn't lie the question never was asked. But does it make you a dirty person who did it and is afraid and hide it from your kids because you know they will not forgive you for lying to them about the past.
As a woman and mother I can see right through the boss and what the husband is truly trying to do, believe me the boss would of been kicked in the ass and thrown to the curb long ago.
I like Will and Alicia .Peter is a cheater and once a cheater always a cheater .he cheated on her not only once but twice and lied through those fake caps.and I want his mother Jackie to put in a home .How dare she raid there account ? Alicia needs to give Peter notice that his mother is faking and is conning him .Please when will this over age school boy cut the apron string from Mommy . I cannot stand her somebody better tell her to butt out the nosy old lady .
We need more Alicia and Peter not Will, this is about a GOOD WIFE it would be nice to see more of it. Will only brings contriversy to the whole story and leaves the family values out, there is more to this series than a cheap thrill as most Will fans want.
Please I want to see Alicia with Will in season 4 I miss them...
Here's another vote for Will. It's not just "Will & Alicia", but Will alone as a character. He is a very interesting personage and not enough has been made of him. He is also a great actor, better than Alicia (assuming their fictional names for convenience). The writers need to show a more intellectual side of Will, since he obviously has one. Another thread that needs developing: Will and Diane -- they should have more Sun Tzu "Art of War" conversations. What makes this series so good is that there are adult conversations in it. Alicia needs to be portrayed as slightly more intelligent.
Peter is boring. Also, do NOT like M J Fox -- git him out!
We would like to see less of Will in season 4 and a whole lot of Peter and family together. Family life means more to her than a cheap roll in the hay.
I really want to see Alicia with Will in season 4, something stronger than Peter and less boring.
With Cary back at the firm, hopefully his role gets more airtime and that will play into Kalinda. As for some reason he was basically demoted this year in favor of Eli as a main character. Show was it's best when Cary and Kalinda were main players and not behind the scenes.
My take on season 4 will be that Will moves on with another and Alicia finnally opens up and sees that she was the one who needs to put things right and mean it. Don't say we will try and look the other way, that is the wrong attitude.
Yes the kids come first but you got to make that happen, in past seasons they were on the back burner all the time and she kept telling them little lies about how she felt. She wasn't happy but tried to fool them with the school girl mentality which they could see through. The writers keep Peter on the front for a good reason he is still there for her and she knows it.
my interpretation of whatever that went on in S3 was that Alicia was more attracted to the idea of family than a romantic relationship with Peter.
It was more about the kids; they came first, hence she ended the affair with Will.
From the elevator scene with Will i read that she still has feelings for this man, but that's all they can be right now given the circumstances they're in.
I must say I would prefer that she move on from Peter. Like they say: trust is like a mirror, you can fix it if it's broken, but you'll still see the cracks and you'll never look at it the same again.
Predictions for S4? Peter is definitely interested in wanting Alicia back, either they will give the marriage a real try (which i hope not, see reason above) or they'll both reach a consensus to put the marriage behind them with the understanding of the kids and move on with life.
Well, as most people know I like the idea of W/A. What I do not like is if people get to violent or radical over characters on a TV show. So calling names is more than uncalled for and this is valid for all parties. No matter what people did there are always qualities Kids can look up to in their parents and if it is only the fact that they are loved by them unconditionally.
I have just dropped these comments when people use them for their personel foul language remarks, you might not like certain characters that doesn't give anybody the right to use those kind of foul mouth comments.
Please move this show back to Tuesday night. As it has been this season, following The Great Race with the erratic end of that silly program, no wonder the number of viewers dropped!!!
Peter is a fucking nasty whore. Alicia is a noble, beautiful woman and she deserves so much better. She needs to get that scumbag out of her hair, and get a male figure that her kids can actually look up to.
MY hope is for season 4 to be what this show is all about and not something it is not, for all you Will fans forget it this is not going to happen. A lot of people think Alicia is in love with him, does anyone know what love is and how it works. Her getting laided was a deep emotional feeling she has for her husband without him being there, Will is a fantesy and she knows he has a very deep dark past that would not fit into her life or future.
This is my show!!! My house shuts down @ 8 on Sundays.. Also, I so want to see Alicia with Will. The kids are grown & they need to understand that their mother is not happy with their father and let Will know how much she loves him too!!!!! She deserves to be happy not settling!! I am so for Alicia and Will, I hope to see more of them two!
