'The Good Wife': What's going to happen next week between Alicia and Will?

good-wifeImage Credit: Craig Blankenhorn/CBSIt’s taken me awhile to warm to Alicia’s brother on The Good Wife, but now that the promo for the Feb. 15 episode has shown him encouraging her to talk to Will about her feelings (and that second voicemail he left her), he’s my new best friend. I was already on a good TV-induced high from Will and Diane’s low-five last night after they tricked Derrick into firing some of his people, but when the promo embedded below started — “for this wife the waiting is finally over” — I almost passed out. How do you think that conversation, pictured, will play out? The Good Wife writers wouldn’t dare have Tammy, Will’s girlfriend, pop out of his bathroom to interrupt them again. Tammy is clearly falling for Will, even if she’ll only admit she loves the way he smells (note to self: resist the urge to ask the Kings what cologne he wears), but Will hasn’t fallen in love with her. (Right?) I don’t think he’d stop Alicia from saying what she came to say, or stop himself from telling her what he said in that voicemail. But then what? I suppose he could say his life is too complicated right now to put his head around the media circus that would surround them if Alicia left Peter. We haven’t really seen much done with the fact that Eli is a valued client. Could that somehow come back into play, with Will and Diane needing that money now to keep their votes? (It would feel a bit out of nowhere, no?)

What’s your best guess? Do you think they will at least share another kiss? I bet not. I feel like the next time their lips touch, it won’t stop there, and I think Alicia still has enough control not to let that happen. (That said, this show does like bold moves…) I think they’ll acknowledge their feelings — but also that they need a plan before they can act on them. So we get some movement, but we’re still in a tension-filled holding pattern.

For playing what if with me, here’s what I can tell you about next week’s episode: It’s the one inspired by The Social Network. Rita Wilson guests as Viola Walsh, an old lawyer friend of Diane’s, who asks her to represent a young internet billionaire who’s suing a movie studio for defamation. Will and Diane take the case, and go up against the studio’s lawyer (F. Murray Abraham). Peter, Childs, Wendy Scott-Carr, and their campaign managers meet to discuss off-limit topics for the campaign. Childs wears a leather jacket (badass!) and a hat (because he’s changed his hair for another role).

  • Alicia

    Tammy and Diane are going to have an altercation! Mark my words!

    • cc

      ooh that sounds good!

  • Kate C.

    i am glad i am not the only one who jumped up and down on the couch because of the sheer excitement of next weeks episode!! could there be a better show on television?? nope!

  • vic

    I hope Peter or Zach punches Will in the crotch. I hate that guy.

  • Amy

    I can’t figure out what they are going to do, but I am so excited to find out. It’s funny that even though we want to see Alicia and Will together the writing is so good, that even the wait is enjoyable. I trust the writers.

    • Becks

      So true! On a lesser show I would just be pissed that they aren’t together yet, but this one’s so good I don’t even care!

  • Tammy

    I really don’t like Will and Alicia together, I much prefer Peter. I know I’m in the minority, but I really hope Alicia stays with her husband! Which is odd, because affairs have practically destroyed my family, and yet I love Peter.

    • RememberMe

      That’s the power of Chris Noth!

    • Aimee

      Please watch Sports Night to discover the power of Josh Charles!
      Will ftw!

      • Anne TM

        Sports Night was one of the best shows ever! Smart, funny, tender – I loved it!

    • Kiki

      Yup I want them together so bad! I love them! I think working on their marriage is so much more interesting *sigh*

  • TGWObsessed

    I don’t have any idea but I can’t wait to find out. I’m starting a countdown to next Tuesday in my head already.
    I doubt they are getting together. Will’s going to turn her down and Alicia may realize what she has lost.

  • Bella

    I love your idea that they acknowledge their feelings, the complexity of the situation and that they’ll need a plan. That leavves room for all kinds of things. And I’m one who hopes Alicia and Will get together. I’m a Chris Noth fan, and Peter has kind of grown on me, but not enough to want Alicia to take him back.

  • L Williams

    @Tammy, I am with you on that one..I prefer Alicia with her husband. Will only wants what he can’t have, the forbidden fruit. If Alicia goes after him now, he will lose interest fast. The whole “what if” would be gone. The “chase” would be over. Besides, Wills new girlfriends, is keeping him on his toes, and thats who he needs to stick with; For now, Alicia is another mans wife, period!

  • No Kidding

    I love Will and Alicia and cannot stand Tammy. Off with her head… Likewise I agree with Mandi’s point that Will and Alicia will probably make a plan for “when” they can get together after the campaign, etc. Then it will be H-O-T!

  • John

    Great episode (and yes, the low-five was pretty awesome). What’s with not commenting on another stellar performance from Michael J Fox and his love him or hate him character that he plays. A definite con-artist of a lawyer…
    Did anyone catch the jerky camera at the beginning of the episode though? I thought it was intential at first, but it was only for the first scene with Alicia… Almost made it unwatchable with a bouncing camera.
    And disliking Will’s gf (who played Eve on Grey’s Anatomy)… Don’t see the chemistry or the attraction there… Seems like miscasting there…

  • Danielle

    Holding my breath till next Tuesday. LOVE LOVE LOVE Will, and I’d love to see some more of the tension between them. Really like Elizabeth Reaser, and I’ve loved seeing her on the show, BUT … I want Will drooling over Alicia.
    However it’s set up … I just don’t see them actually making plans to be together next week. I’d love it, but I just don’t see it happening. Some miscommunication will occur, or Will will say he needs to stay with Elizabeth Reaser’s character, or something.

  • ellie

    Can not stand Will’s girlfriend. I’m not sure I want Will and Alicia together though.

    • salma

      I quite agree. I can’t stand the writers who always made up strange and annoying girlfriend for Will , why not have a cute girlfriend?

      • Rimdiq

        Remember that cute Tattoo girl/attorney from the first season, i thought she and Will were Combustible!!! =D

    • Maggie

      Me too. I can’t stand Tammy anymore.

  • Anna

    Is Next week Valentine’s Day special edition ? I’m not optimistic, if Will and Ailcia together just now , they have nothing to play for?

  • Anna

    But I really don’t like Tammy very much. When she’ll go? I’ll be happy to see it.

  • willykann

    We have had to go half a season with nothing so please give us something. They dont have to fall into each others arms but let them clear the air and back on to the same page. We need hope to survive and if ever two people were made for each other these two are.Love Owen.

    • Maggie

      I don’t think they’ll give us what we want.
