The Good Wife > The Good Wife Season Finale Review: Bait, Switch and Scheme > Comments Page 3
Well I read the interview as well. I am not sure how much they really want to reveal.
I still don't get it why people want Alicia be back with Peter. When she told Will it is over they all hopped on and said she said it is over so it is over.
How often did she say it to Peter? she even kicked him out.
The thing is you can not switch feelings on and of, you do not leave half of you live and never look back. I think it just natural that there is a art who wants the secure feeling back, even when in the end it had been only an illusion.
If there is one lesson you can learn from real live there is no such thing than a guarantee.
I would really like to see W/A together. Not as the easy journey some want but the hard way it is if you are already at a certain age and you have baggage.
They would be good for each other, she needs to learn to trust again and to find a voice for her feelings again and he need to overcome his fears to get hurt. Sorry, but who still
I agree, it did not feel like a finale and it could have with a few changes. During season 2 someone kept phoning Kalinda at work while Blake was around and doing research on Kalinda so I knew she had a husband then from some things that were said at that time. That she had that check and that it had never been cashed and not discussed was very strange. And, if Will knows a lot about her case he should be briefing Alicia and/or she should be asking him to get up to speed. That would give the writers a way to put them together and the whole situation between Peter and Kalinda could be discussed. More emphasis on completing story lines would be great and on main characters. Two more sentences in the elevator with Will and Alicia would have made a huge difference. The guns and money thing was overdone and Peter living in the house without Alicia was creepy to me. She needs to move on.
TGW season finale was good NOT GREAT. Similar to the whole season 3. THe Kings dropped the ball on how the handled the Will and Alicia affair. They never let it fully develop and the breakup was a DUH. Never explained!
There is a lot of LOVE still there and I don't understand WHY Alicia with kids and separated from her husband CAN NOT have a personal life. Her kids are old enough to understand that...the explanation that the KIngs are giving in the post finale is SO BOGUS!
Kalinda husband sounds like he's bad news
I thought as a season finale, it was anti-climactic. I was hoping for a teasing jolt of electricity between Alicia and Will. I do NOT want to see her go back to Peter. Also, to me, Kalinda is the most fascinating character on the show and I'm intrigued by the whole "husband" scenario. Can't wait until next season to see if she kills him.
On the episode as a finale front, I am sick of shows being way too overdramatic and all guns blazing in finale so I'm glad it felt like just another episode. I think it does the writers credit that they strive for every episode to be just as good as their last.
Im really interested in the Kalinda storyline. i think i accidently read a spoiler somewhere because I wasn't that shocked with the husband reveal but still glad they brought it up, Kalinda's had less screentime this season than the last. Plus im glad the show leaves a lot of things unsaid relying on the visual, the actors are good enough to pull it off. Im glad Kalinda decided to stay after realising her husband knew Alicia's name.
As for the Alicia Peter stuff, interested to see where this goes, Peter isnt an awful guy- awful husband sure. But I still would not want to see them actually together. But I know life and relationships are complicated and TGW seems to get that so who know whats going to happen!!
I think. like most of the others that it was good episode, much better than the lest one. Well we are all so used to a cliff-hanger finale so everyone, me included waited for the big bang.
I thing Eli's lines where great again and I liked that they brought the elevator back for the finale, this time with a funny twist.
Over all the show leaves many things open for interpretation, there are many things between the lines which are easy to miss.
I also agree that there are sometimes to many people around, the main cast is huge comparing to many other shows and there are many untold stories.
Unlike most I normally like Louis Canning and Patty Nyholm, today it was a bit strange cause this seemed to be a really big case and there was no word about it before, but okay you have 43 minutes to tell a story.
Well we have some months to watch the last show again and wonder what they plan for the next season.
I also think there are more storylines than in the poll above and I do
I'm just amazed that the season is over so soon! I know it was 22 episodes, but the beginning of the season still feels so fresh in my mind. Alicia deciding whether or not she wants to be a part of her family (with Peter) isn't new to the viewers, so that last scene was very underwhelming. I was a little bit shocked at how dangerous Kalinda's husband seemed, but I wish it would've amounted to something that the audience could see rather than leaving us hanging for season 4. But shout out to the awkward moment at the elevators...I kept rewinding to savor the awkwardness!
I agree that this episode was rather lack-luster but I am thinking that it is setting us up for an explosive Season 4. Why did Peter text/call Cary in the prior episode? Why was Peter not so surprised to see Cary at Lockhardt-Gardner this episode? I always thought there was not much to the Will/Alicia affair. I have a number of college friends in the same situation and, while the sparks fly, the relationship cannot handle the long haul. I welcome the reunion of Peter and Alicia...only for Season 4, I would like to see a twist in that Alicia must pursue Peter to win him back. She was not so much the "Good Wife" in that her affair with Will, which took place while still married to Peter. Yes, Peter did some terrible things, but it seems like the writers have him owning up to his sins and trying his best to become a better person. In this twist, Alicia must admit to herself that she is not as "good" as she thinks and now she must admit that to herself as well as to admit to the aff
Totally agree Matt. I love the show, but it did seem like a bait and switch. Eps 19-21 resurected the linear story telling, and it was well written. We were introduced to Mike Kresteva (Matthew Perry), and reintroduced to Agent Lana (Jill Flint} and Lemond Bishop (Mike Colter). Will started to date again (Callie/Julianne Nicholson), and Howard (Jerry Adler) was brought into the firm again. Jackie found a way back into Alicia's life. For some odd reason Martha Plimpton and Michael J. Fox came off like cheesey like The Riddler and The Joker teaming. I'm off to minds on the finale. I like seeing all the main cast, but something didn't feel right.
I think I have to agree with the review.
Kalinda's actions were typical Kalinda. Only shocking thing to me was she revealed she has a husband.
After all this time, WHY is Alicia still torn about having anything to do with Peter? With it being revealed to Patti and Louis that they are separated, you just know that their separation will play a major part of the storyline next season.....along with the governors race.
I think some of the scenes seem forced in an effort to have the entire cast on the season finale, well, everyone but Michael Boatman's character.........
I think Alicia's kids still seem SPOILED and BRATTY...........
I am schocked! I didn't realize last night's episode was the season finale! What a huge disappointment - as a finale. But as a regular episode, it was great - a lot of funny scenes to balance the serious ones. Each cast member had a chance to show their "stuff" - but again, as a finale, terrible.
Matt, I completely agree with your assessment. It felt like a regular episode, not a season finale. I actually felt my attention wandering a few times, which is not a good sign. I still think the Good Wife is one of the strongest shows on television. But this season, I felt they tried to go in too many different directions and nothing felt cohesive. I feel that they need to cut down on the guest stars next season. I love every single one and they all do a great job. But they are overshadowing the main core of the cast. Oh well. I did crack up at the scene with all of the cast outside the elevators and Patti Nyholms kid that kept circling around the offices.
