As the SA he also comes under a conflict-of-interest, but there is nothing in the law rules that mention this practice. He owed her for all the crap he's put her through, plus Alicia would get that as part of a divorce settlement. I don't think so she has now a dark past that the courts will seem down on regarding an affair with her BOSS (A VERY BIG MISTAKE) was made. She is still married but separated it is still the same in the eyes of the court.

"You all have seen the episode where the firm decided to upgrade 5 associate's to junior partners, now when it came to them coming up with the big $600.000 who step up and who didn't ? Now does this tell you a very bigger story of who cares and who doesn't."

Nobody is saying that Peter doesn't care. In actuality, Peter is the only person who could have given Alicia the money; Will could not because it would have been a conflict-of-interest. Peter giving Alicia the $600,000 is the very least he could do; he owed her for all the crap he's put her through, plus Alicia would get that as part of a divorce settlement.

Diego said, "Real love is not selfish, but sacrificial and considerate of each other..." My question continues to be what sacrifice has Peter made. Money is not a sacrifice. And the only thing Peter has given up that I can see is sleeping with other women.

PS...Personally I would have given my notice and moved on from this firm do to the underhanded way they were screwing them only to reverse their minds.

Sigh so Cary and Kalinda are leaving LG!! no!! don't trust the new girl, she seems dodgy and i want to know more about her story.

alicia needs to move on and accept it now, no one forced her to stay with peter. she loves the privileges it gives her. this episode had a real deep meaning/moral about the use of social media, despite the evidence out there not all the time it can be used in court. it's similar to all the murder crimes we hear about.

diane, i don't think she should go for it, it's not guaranteed, and will cause long term damage to the firm.

I like to know where in any of the seasons where Alicia is in love with WIll ? It has been from the start that she is deathly afraid that her kids will find out and blame her for the breakup.
As for Alicia in court yes Peter has been a help to her, but when it comes to Will he seems to always have her there as second chair (junior partner). When Dianne or Alicia are there they have associates as second chairs, Will is using her as a crutch so when he makes big mistakes she goes down also.
I don't see this as a strong relationship I hope she goes with Cary and the rest when they leave, also she will revow with Peter.

I think next week we'll see the turning point in whether she decides to renew her vows to Peter. I, for one, am hoping she doesn't renew her vows, because I don't feel it would be honest of her at this point. She clearly has unresolved feelings for Will and she needs to either sort through them or let them play out before she can truly go back to Peter if she decides she wants that. I'd be lying if I said I'd support her going back to Peter, but I can see that as a potential option. While Alicia and Will do love each other, Peter is the family man. He's proven to be stable and, lately, loving. He clearly regrets his choices, but I don't think that makes up for them. Will isn't without flaws either, but I think trying a real relationship with him will give them the closure they need at the very least (hopefully more!)

"The relationship is about so much more than these two characters sleeping together. It's about a real friendship and a real love--two imperfect people finding each other and becoming better together."

Will and Alicia's friendship started in law school and has never wavered. Their love (which I also believe started in law school) is now blooming because of the actions of a third party. If that third party hadn't committed their acts, Will and Alicia wouldn't have even thought about deepening their relationship.

I also find it fascinating that outsiders seem to all see chemistry/connection between Alicia and Will.

Alicia and Peter

Diego you write, "Real love is not selfish, but sacrificial and considerate of each other..." I know the sacrifices that Alicia has made, but what sacrifices has Peter made? Yes...he gave her the money for the equity partnership, but he would have had to give her that money in a divorce settlement--it was the least he could do for her.

As for who has supported Alicia more, we will just have to disagree. Because I didn't see Peter giving her advise as to how to handle cases in court; I saw Will doing that. I saw her and Will sitting in the office going over cases late at night. I see Alicia going back to the office to help Will celebrate the end of his suspension (she didn't stay because Diane beat her to Will). I see Alicia and Will always asking if the other is ok. I see Will giving Alicia cases that challenge her because he knows that she is better than she thinks.

So I think Stana Katic's comment (about Castle and Kate) fits Will and Alicia:
"The relationship is about so much more than these two character sleeping together. It's about a real friendship and a real love--two imperfect people finding each other and becoming better together."

I feel like I'm watching a different show than some of the people here.

Diego you write, "Will and Alicia's relationship. If their clandestine relationship has made Alicia better, why is she feeling so guilty about pursuing it." The show directly contradicts your statement. In "The Dream Team" (Season 3, episode 22), Alicia states clearly that she neither regrets her "affair" with Will nor feels guilty about it. If you don't believe me, go watch it.

Also, if Alicia were feeling guilty, why was she jealous of his moving on with Laura in "The Wheels of Justice"? Why did she call Will in that same episode?

I have a comment but about Alicia's relationship with Peter, but it's too long to put here.

Did I miss an episode? I remember that Alicia, Cary, and the other 4th year associates were all offered partnerships because the firm needed the money that new partners were required to invest. Now I see that Alicia was the only one who became an equity partner. What happened? Did the firm no longer need the money to avoid bankruptcy? Or was it that Alicia was the only one who was able to come up with the cash - a loan (almost a gift) from her husband.
