The Good Wife

Sometimes I'm amazed at just how consistently amazing this show is.

I mean, DAMN. I was very disappointed at the end, because Cary, Alicia and Kalinda going off to found their own firm is kind of my dream show, but I knew it was never going to happen, so I guess I'm not surprised that Alicia took the partnership. It does make me sad, though, especially since she was the one who fired up the fourth years.

And wow, you really don't want to make Alicia angry, do you? I just loved all the subtle--and not so subtle--ways her anger came out here, especially in the mock trial scenes. It's such an interesting change from always-buttoned-down Alicia. It really feels like she's starting to come into her own now, in both good ways (being more assertive, going after what she wants, being absolutely KICKASS in court) and bad ones (I really, really felt bad for Cary, even though choosing Alicia was inevitable given the political stuff with Peter. Still, that's the second time Cary's lost out to Alicia because of Peter).

Meanwhile, the Elspeth-Eli stuff was absolutely FABULOUS. God, I love Elspeth so much. I think one of the things I love best about this show is how it nourishes these great minor characters with weird quirks, whether it's judges before whom you must preface everything with "in my opinion,"or accordion-playing federal prosecutors or just full-blown eccentrics like Elspeth. And I love that Eli was the one with the brilliant scheme to wear the wire.

SO MUCH LOVE for this show, even though it throws roadblocks in the 'ship I really want, which is Alicia/Cary/Kalinda. (I'm kind of meh on the Alicia-Will kiss, though I'm glad she stopped herself and realized it was a bad decision).

Your thoughts are my thoughts. I am so bummed out about Cary, particularly because I was loving all the amazing Cary/Alicia interaction (I've shipped them since S1) and the resolution means there probably won't be much more of that, but it was a great episode nonetheless.

I find Cary/Alicia SO much hotter than Will/Alicia! And yeah, I'm upset what this means for even their friendship in the future. I would certainly feel extremely betrayed if I were Cary. :-(
