I was floored to realize that Will has never met (or even seen) Alicia's children. As long as she has worked there and as close as her family has been to her job, it's unimaginable that there would have been NO event where the kids weren't at least introduced to co-workers, especially the managing partners. All the scenes involving the kids in this episode seemed forced and unnatural - especially the way they were grilling their mother about what she does with her time (and with whom) when they aren't around. For one thing, teenagers don't really think about their parents having a personal life and, for another, well-bred kids would never pry that way. The writers tried to cover by implying they were concerned that she was lonely, but that doesn't fly. My first thought was they had been prompted by their father or grandmother to tell what they knew about Alicia's life - after all there is a divorce settlement and custody agreement waiting in the wings - and that made me think less of the kids.

I liked the focus on Cary and Matan. I've always liked Carey (really wanted him to hook up with Kalinda.)

I think a good show has many stories and not just teh one, Alica and Will.

Correct observation about Carey and 'ethnic' women. (Just good taste?)

I was a nervous for Alicia though when her children start questioning what she did when they were away. I think she was too. And also when Will and Zack met and he hesitated about their meeting, only to say he really wanted a car.

I could see the relief in her face.

This is the first episode that I was rooting for Cary. Usually I am suspicious of his motives but here he was being a good soldier and getting dumped on at every turn. Then when he achieved the Name on the Door I couldn't help but grin for him.
Agree with the general reaction on this site that this was the show's lamest episode. It didn't really advance the long-term story or provide much suspense.

This wasn't my favorite episode but I don't agree with the review that is was horrible either. I like seeing what makes the other characters tick so it doesn't bother me to see them focus more on the others.

I love Parker Posey and was delighted with her turn although I agree the whole Bin Laden thing was a stretch. Hopefully she will recur.

I thought the Will and Zack conversation was painfully hilarious. I keep getting mixed signals from Alicia in regards to how serious she is with Will. She didn't want him to meet her kids but I definitely got the sense when Caitlin was talking to Will, she steered her away quickly with a sort of "Get away from my man" demeanor about her. Did anyone else think that? It is clear that Will wants more from her than she is giving, but I agree the
reason is unclear. I don't think (or don't want to think:) it is about lack of love, but more fear of acknowledging the relationship. I hope they address this soon cause, for me at least, the lack of clarity is bothersome.

And I am hoping Caitlin grows on me cause right now I just find her annoying.

This was one of the worst episodes of this show yet. Poor Matt Czuchry can't carry the hour, so to speak. The only high point of his scenes were Monica Raymund, who would actually be a much better fit for the show. Her character actually seemed to have some intelligence and the wherewithal to be a prosecutor.

What rock do you live under? I know couples that did better than just date, they got married...

It's a stoplight party, not a spotlight party. The cup are the colors and meaning of the colors on a stoplight.

Do not like A Good Wife anyway--overrated!!

Too much time was spent this week on characters we didn't know very well. Caitlin. Dana. Matan. I didn't feel invested in most of the hour's developments.

Totally agree!Do they have no story yet compiled?

Just watched the Zach & Will scene - so awkward! Loved it!
