I'm hoping that once she realizes Alicia's leaving, Kalinda will too. I wanted four things to happen this season: Alicia/Will, Diane/Kurt, Kalinda/Cary, and Alicia and Cary making their new firm. I guess 2 out of 4 isn't too bad... And maybe working at separate firms will bring Alicia and Will closer. At the very least, they can have hate sex!

To me season 4 has its up and down but this is still among the top 3 best show on TV and certainly the BEST TV show that is on network TV. I enjoyed the regular cast like Kalinda and Eli and also the guest stars very much in particular Carrie Preston, M J FOX and Mamie Gummer. I too am not really into the triangle relationship of the show. Whoever Alicia chose, I just want her to be happy. I do know many female fans who are into it and tonight finale might have piss those on TEAM Gardner because it now seems Alicia truly wants to DRAW the line.

Whether you like Will or not, he had been the gentleman in their triangle relationship but next season once he found out that his business (at least part of it) and woman are both gone, I really wonder if he will go all psycho.

I wonder if he will get very angry with Alicia !

My first thought that her decision to join Cary was 2 fold. A. She's now the governor's wife & now has a very high profile name that could make this start-up w Cary VERY successful (We've seen her struggle with the partner bullsh*t at Lockhart Gardner) and B. This allows her relationship with Will to develop without the scrutiny of their professional relationship. But the question is, will Lockhart Gardner fall into anarchy without Diane since now she'll be taking that judgeship? It'll be Will & David Lee & we know without Alicia there Will will probably be miserable. So maybe Lockhart Gardner will dissolve? Could we see Gardner, Florrick, Agos & Associates?

In Peter's defense, he is threatened by Will, because of Alicia, and so he probably did not react with the head on his shoulders. He finally wins back Alicia, and his biggest threat to his personal happiness now threatens his career as well. Now Peter should hire his own people to investigate and then come forward. But with as corrupt as Chicago politics are, Illinois is the state where governors make license plates, this is a non issue.

And with the show called "The Good Wife" was Alicia's choice a surprise?

I'm in all about these comments with several people thinking she made this move to Cary to get closer to Will, don't be surprised in the end of season 5 that all your hopes go down the drain.
There won't be any Will and the firm will end up in the hoopper because of mismanagement by Will and Lee, mark these words.
Just to let the people know when it comes to trust I would put Peter up and Will down, he showed it with his talk with Will regarding the ballots. Who made the right move ? Hiding the truth shows what person can't be trusted, don't forget Peter didn't see or know about the fraud but Will did.
As for who do you trust Peter or Alicia my vote is for Peter, Alicia has been hiding and lying to herself and family regarding what she wants. If your not happy in a marriage divorce and get out, stop this pussie footing around.

Refreshing that Illinois finally has a Governor that went to prison prior to holding office. Nice little book end feel. Alicia has really lost it if she believes she can practice law and be lst Lady. So her support of and commitment to Peter was a complete farce? She has shown her loyalty is completely superficial. Even with her children. She should have been in counseling the last 4 years.

OK, give props to the writers for the "I'm in" and fade to next season bit....I've read somewhere that the Will thing is over (per the writers), and if that is the case then I for one, will be disappointed. The Will thing is a basic thread to the story-line, as they go all the way back to college. The Good Wife is a play on words...meaning not so good. Darn it all enough already...I think there is a lot of story lines to be mined if Will and Alicia become a "couple"... Castle has done it very very successfully, and actually made the program better.

I hope the new firm will have enough clients to keep them going. Sweeny is getting free lawyers for 2 years. Alicia wants to be a firm that treats everybody fairly not just the partners.Did Peter and Eli know about the vote rigging. Will Peter Alicia and the kids all live together now? And will LG be featured very much in the new season, which can't come fast enough. Kalinda seems to have a difficult time committing but she has saved LG many times and its about time she should be paid for it.

My favorite part of this episode was watching the various lawyers play both sides in the ballot-stuffing challenge. What a great example of the cynicism of the law. On the issue of Alicia and her 2 men, I for one am hoping she stays with Peter because i think the Will story has been mined for all it can give. Except the drama of discovery and that would definitely make the title of this show ironic. I say move to the new firm and all its attendant problems and be the big wheel in that group and stop being the low man on the totem pole at Lockhart-Gardiner.

It's refreshing to see Peter win one for a change. Did you see the look on Alicia's daughter's face when she decided to go with Will instead of her children? Alicia has made a complete mess of her life and Will help put her there. His character is totaly Gabarge and now that she will be joining Carey at their firm maybe season 5 will extract whatever GOOD is left in her.
