Love comes and goes. It can be difficult to cope with tragic loss and march forward with your chin high, perhaps even impossible. But it’s imperative. There’s no sense in dwelling on former love and relationships if there’s no hopes of rekindling what is lost. The best we can do is offer it a proper farewell and carry on.
Fans of “The Good Wife” are well aware that the agonizingly taunting relationship between Alicia and Will has come to an end, at least for the foreseeable future. When Will discovered that Alicia was planning on leaving the firm with Cary, stealing all the top clients as she slipped out the door, he decided enough was enough. That was the straw on the camels back, as it should be. But not to fret. Will did not walk away with his tail tucked between his legs.
Will now has a new girl on his arm, a new tattoo and a newfound thirst for blood. He plans to take Lockhart/Gardner to the top and promises that he’ll no longer play the nice guy. He’s in it to win it, and will crush anyone who steps in his path, even if it’s Alicia.
“It's been intense,” Josh Charles, who plays will, told TV Guide. “The stakes have been elevated quite a bit, and there is such history there and many unexpressed emotions that it adds all of these wonderful and complex colors to their dynamic.
“I think the betrayal by Alicia, which Will feels on both a personal and professional level, has the opposite effect on him that some might imagine. It completely energizes him and triggers his competitive spirit. He always wants to win at all costs, but now he has even extra incentive.”
For those still rooting for Alicia and Will to put their differences behind them, there’s still hope, but not anytime soon. “He may one day be able to see it for what it is,” Charles said. “Perhaps, he would have made the same move if the shoe was on the other foot. But, at this moment, I don't think he's anywhere near there yet or, frankly, will be anytime too soon. I think he still feels betrayed and is focusing on fighting for his firm and making sure it can be the best it can be.”
“The Good Wife” airs Sunday nights on CBS.
