Alicia and Carey should work together even if it is for another firm. I think she should take the big bonus she gets and leave with him to open another firm. I don't want to watch the show if they are fighting again...no fun. They need Kalinda too.

Elsbeth is great.

Will and Alicia click more than Alica and Peter.

It would have been great to see Alicia and Cary going it alone. But that would have been difficult to bring off as there would be less reason to use the rest of the cast (Alicia might have wanted to see Will again, of course). Cary has been sidelined one more time - and David Lee's comments about Alicia's husband's name is just too true. I think we might just have witnessed the show's climax. Will it ever match this episode's drama again?

If you want this show to go into a 5th season knock off the Will/Alicia BS, it is hurting the entire TGW ratings. Everyone thinks she is playing Peter for sex, lets write it right and move him back in and move on with the real reason.
Some where the writers and producers will open up and put together better storylines from all sides work,home,and family. And how about opening Alicia eyes to the fact they are using her for personel gain on Peter and not her, it shows she is still a very weak person and can be used as a puppet very easily.
I also agree with the comment that there is a moll in the firm, think back several episodes when Cary came back, what happened at the welcome back drinks at the bar ?

Alicia is definitely not in love with Will. Attracted? You bet. Using Peter to relieve her sexual tension? Absolutely. But the name of the show, in case you have forgotten, is "The Good Wife." Alicia is now chiefly a pragmatist, not a romantic, and for purely pragmatic purposes she is clearly invested in being Mrs. Florrick. In fact, it was made clear to her that she was being offered the sole partnership going on the strength of being married to the putative next governor of the state.

The episode was great and the associates beating the bosses in a mock trial was brilliant but for me the kiss totally deflated a lot of the show for me. The Good Wife can never be TGW as long as her character continue to have an affair. She called off Lee from filing for a divorce so what is she thinking? We can all see that Will won't work. Will's character is greatly narcissistic, schemer and liar, among other faults. He is not a good match for Alicia though some fans are happy with a sordid affair. If the title of the show has any meaning the dirty wife storyline should be written out.

Loved the fast one Eli pulled with the help of his crack (or cracked) lawyer. Like you, at first I was disappointed that he would betray Peter's team but when he outsmarted the devious Josh, I practically cheered.
I was sad that Alicia took the partnership but I realize this isn't middle school where friendship loyalty comes first so this was more realistic. Carey time after time gets the short end of the stick and always responds honorably. He's my hero.

Loved this episode...finally things get moving. Will and Alicia should definitively get back together...it never ended really...

I was looking forward to this episode but had a completely different experience that Carla Day had.

The past few episodes have taken an alternate turn that presented challenges like the financial difficulties within the firm and Felicia's increasing reluctance about the firm. In this episode that suddenly went backwards. It wasn't the only thing the writers decided to return to either. This episode was too much "Boston Legal" stupid hijinks, the thing that helped kill that show.

The acting on this show has been touted through many avenues of media streams. It has been very beneficial to this show. This episode struggles to maintain the equilibrium that has helped it gather steam and rise to the cream.

There were so many interesting avenues this episode could have traversed but instead took one that was too obvious and characteristically depriving.

To whom it may concern Alicia made a very big mistake with Will and she knew it, she doesn't want it to go any further that's why Will said later good bye after their talk. She is not going to let Peter go no matter what people think, her family means a lot and would totally destroy her if they ever found out about what happened seasons ago with Will. PS Will has moved on as usual.

PS Her other associates will never trust her again, watch to see who will leave if the ratings don't cancel this show.

I really really agree with BoxyP
It depends on your background, corporate america is stressing anyone can make it, if he/she is extraordinary, so it's all about one against all.
It's coherent that Alicia accepts partnership, after all in this same place everyone was commenting Diane's lecture (past episodes), how great it was and how naif was Alicia thinking that merit was the only cause for the first offer.
I loved that they didn't even put sugar on the pill, bringing in the Florrick name again.
The authors know their job: a kiss is all it takes to get the pro this pro that groups to renew interest in the show.
To me: real surprise was Eli's storyline: great!
And as a plus the creepy David Lynch actor smiling at Elsbeth, that was where my interest went and that is were (IMO) this episode nailed it.
