The Good Wife

A few thoughts on last night's episode:

Considering that both of the pivotal Alicia-Kalinda breakup scenes were in the teasers, I'm surprised I found them as painful to watch as I did. It's going to KILL me if the show doesn't find some way to restore the friendship between the 2 of them, so for that reason I'm very glad that Kalinda is staying. Also, I like the fact that Will has figured out that something is up between them, since he might be a catalyst for something.

And speaking of Will--those scenes for next week! It's funny, I'm clearly more of an Alicia/Kalinda than an Alicia/Will person, because I was wondering what on earth they could be saving for next week now that the breakup had happened, and then I saw the previews and went "DOH." I honestly wasn't expecting explicit Alicia/Will for a while, so I'm interested to see where they go with that.

I loved Alicia's confrontation with Jackie. Like probably most viewers, I really have never liked Jackie, so I was glad Alicia finally got to stand up to her, though I really hope this isn't going to devolve into an ugly custody battle, since that would suck. (And I'm assuming that vague threat Jackie made about "what went on in the house" was about the condoms that she found?)

I don't have any actual comments on the case except to say I didn't realize Sarah Silverman could act, but she was pretty good, I thought.

I think my two favorite scenes were 1) Kalinda crying in the elevator, and 2) Kalinda cracking up laughing when she finds out her new job has her working with Peter. I am really hoping that they can repair their friendship somehow.

Agreed about Jackie. Never liked her; nothing seems to get through to that woman save for metaphorical slaps to the face, and even then it doesn't really stick.

And wow, I totally forgot that was Sarah Silverman, which is good, because I actually can't stand her comedy act and was prepared to dislike her in this.

Kalinda in the elevator broke me, I swear. I mean, I know technically she was at fault, but it happened before she knew Alicia, and I really don't know how she could have ever told her without this happening.

I suppose the actress that plays Jackie must be really good, since we're supposed to hate her and I really, really do.

oh god, Kalinda crying in the elevator broke my heart. I'm so glad she's staying - if it's going to be that painful, it needs to at least be painful with them on the same legal side.

Yeah, it broke my heart too. And I'm really glad she's staying, since there would be no reconciliation possible if she wasn't around.
