The Good Wife' finale phone call: Reactions wanted


Over on Ken Tucker’s TV blog, we have an eloquent, thought-provoking critique of last night’s season 1 finale of The Good Wife. Here, I just want to know what you were doing while watching those final moments (relive them again below). Me, I was laying on my couch, literally kicking and screaming. The beauty/danger of watching a show you DVR’d is it’s easy to lose track of where you are in the hour when you don’t have a clock telling you it’s 10:59. There was a tiny part of me that didn’t think it was time to end on the cliffhanger of whether Alicia would answer Will’s second call to hear his “plan” or ignore the ring and step onstage to support Peter. (That was the part of me shouting a “Do not do it!” warning at the TV, willing the episode not to stop there, and kicking the sofa cushion because, of course, deep down I love that the writers got me to that unglued place.)


What was your reaction?


I also found myself wondering if Will opened that $8,000 wine for liquid courage (if so, I hope he drank more than a sip) or because you only open a bottle like that on a special occasion - and manning up, at that moment, counted.

She has to go with Will. Peter cheated on her, she can not pull a Hilary and stay with a man who cheats just so that he can remain a public figure and everyone saves face.

I don't think Alicia is staying with Peter just to save face. Cos everyone would have understood if she left him when the scandal broke. Shes obviously trying to make it work before completely given up. Plus the children play a big factor i her decision as well. Unfortunately I have a feeling that Peter wont change his ways; he may try to but in the end he will fail.
The Good Wife is fantastic and I hope the producers/writer keep up this standard of work because it will be a shame if it was to decline after season 1 like prison break, heroes etc.
