I've been thinking about this for a while and am wondering why so many people want all political wives to be like Hillary Clinton. At what point can a political wife be allowed to be Elizabeth Edwards; forgiving of her husband's mistakes, yet recognize that the marriage is over.
So many people who have commented have said that "Alicia cheated too." Are you freaking kidding me? Why is it that Peter can schtupp everything in a skirt yet Alicia must be the "good wife" and take him back? Why can't Alicia have somebody that loves her and who she loves? Doesn't she deserve that? Does Peter's career have to completely take over Alicia's life so that she can't have the love that she craves/needs/deserves?

But Will showed her nothing except overdoing sex with her till he finaly dumped Alicia in order to avoid the catastrophic consequence caused by the judicial bribery charge brought by Peter(season 3,episode 10). Will is a purely coward and irresponsible person,who didn't deserve Alicia true love. That was smart for Alicia to marry Peter rather than Will when she was in Georgetown, and it is smarter that Alicia finally got back to “new Peter", who had totally transformed into a good father and husband.
I believe it is absolutely impossible that Will and Alicia can get together again in the upcoming season 5, because Peter would not let his kids' mother and his beloved wife go, it is so easy for him to figure out some way to scare Will away again,just like what he did in season 3. For Alicia, a real good mother, who has got balanced psychologically after the affair with will, has accpet Peter's past flaw and grown to love Peter again, just like what she told Grace, becasue they are family.

I don't believe that Alice is truely in love with Will, they are just attracted to each other sexually.Does anyone still remember what Alicia confessed when she talked to her brother in the bar(season3,episode 11).
Her brother:Are you in love with Will?
Alicia:No,I don't think I am.
Her brother:Seriously?
Alicia: Seriously.I think I was in love with "it." You know the attention...
Her brother:the...-Raw,animalistic sex?
Alicia:Yeah!
Alicia clearly knows what she realy wants. She did ever have some passion with Will, but passion fades out as time passes. Only Famly,kids and common interest can bring a couple together permanently. For Alicia,a marriage means commitment,responsibility,and security, not just love or sex. Alicia has ever asked Will to "show me your plan" at Peter's press conference(season 1,episode 23) becausw she has kids,a husband,and the press waiting for a whiff of news scandles. But Will showed her nothing except overdoing sex with her till he finaly dumped Alicia in order to avoid the catastrophic consequence caused by the judicial bribery charge brought by Peter(season 3,episode 10). Will is a purely coward and irresponsible person,who didn't deserve Alicia true love. That was smart for Alicia to marry Peter rather than Will when she was in Georgetown, and it is smarter for her to finally got back to “new Peter", who had totally transformed into a good father and faithful husband.

I hate the idea of Peter and Alicia being together. I think that Alicia loves Will and viceversa (or at least that's what the writers made us believe). All these years since college there's been an attraction between them, but they've simply had "bad timing". Well... now there seems to be "good timing". They are not boss and employee any longer, they are peers. She's separated, her children are not so young and there's nobody important in Will's life. So, why are they complicating things? Is it only to justify a fifth season?

biszara@ There is no undying love just pure hot sex, that is his way of life and has been all these years. He wants his cake and eat it too there is no time for family relationships which he can't handle. She has seen this and trys several times to cut him off when the smooth talk starts.
Why does everyone think Peter is the scumbag, as a woman I for one would take Peter over Will anyday, since season 1 till now Peter has been the angel where Will the devil which can't be trusted. As a lawyer noway as a person a very dark past. Everybody keep saying she loves Will, all I see a way of payback that took place with Will to Peter then quilt took over and disgrace that the kids would find out which leads to denial from them.

One more thing, I agree with some of the reviewers who wonder why people say Will is the bad boy when Peter was the scumbag who cheated on Alicia. Will has been wanting to express his undying love for Alicia since day one, but Alicia was the one who ran away. So, who is the bad boy here? Did we all watch the same show?

Interesting. While going back to Peter is the right thing to do (just because Alicia is his wife), I can't help but find that Alicia and Will's connection/attraction is so real. Well, at least that was how the writers made it. I just wish that Alicia is stronger and not indecisive when comes to what is best for her. Going back and forth made her one confused lady!

At the beginning of this episode, Eli referred to Alicia as 'Saint Alicia'. Is that really true? She is far from being a Saint! Also, in this episode Peter wanted Dianne to leave her firm and become judge. Is this really the best thing for Peter? With Dianne out of the Law Firm, Will and Alicia will be the main partners in the firm. This meansr close interactions between Will and Alicia. Partners have to rely and trust each other just like Will and Dianne. Just wonder where this show will take us from here.

Does anyone know what type of phone Alicia has, it look like it fits in the palm of your hand.
