I don't think there will ever be time to ship Mer and Alex as anything other than awesome friends. I mean, seriously people, the love of her life just died and you already want to start 'shipping' some new relationship for Meredith? I think that's not gonna happen for a very loooong time...

You are completely right. I may watch this season to the end but I know I won't be coming back. And I feel like Shonda managed to do the same thing that HIMYM writers did - she spoilt this show so much for me that I won't be even able to watch earlier seasons for a while. There are a lot of great characters in this show but like you said, it was Meredith and Derek's story. And now it feels to much like ER, it's like with so many characters gone, it's not even the same show right now. They should change its name to 'Russian Roulette' or something because it sure as hell feels like one.

That was one intense episode. I think that Alicia's words to Eli sum it up the best - it never ends. Whether it is election fraud, Peter's indiscretions coming to light, now very public affair with Will - Alicia just can't catch a break. We've seen her fight her way to the top throughout the series and I can't help but feel very bad for her - because now it's gonna be a very hard fall down. Also, I agree with Christine about Peter - for me, no matter what he does, he's shady at best and we must remember about his own, still unresolved, ballot box scandal and that he has governorship to lose if things with Alicia go south.
I'm sure Alicia will fight back, after all Peter became governor after his hooker scandal and going to prison but unfortunately, public opinion is always harsher on women in such matters and right now things don't look so good for Alicia. We can say that The Good Wife came full circle with this episode and in a way Alicia is back where she started - in the outburst of a scandal.
