One raised eyebrow from her, and you’re toast.
How does the show move on without a character who has anchored it for years?
It's been a little unsettling to see Alicia buy into the myth of Saint Alicia.
Last night's episode yanked hard on two threads the show's been dangling for months now.
I'm not applauding Alicia here. I'm a tiny bit heartbroken.
We're left with a few big answers.
This show has always been the story of Alicia, but I wonder what the show still hopes to teach her.
How long can Alicia keep this up?
Nothing says, "Our hiatus is finally over!" like opening with 45 seconds of erotic asphyxiation.
And it was debate night for Alicia.
What more could you want from an hour of television?
And Alicia's bad joke has consequences.
Alicia has a desire not to be private, but to be public on her own terms.
This week delivered a nice, meaty Michael J. Fox appearance.
Hello there, David Hyde Pierce.
The show is back on point after last week's odd episode.
An episode that was all over the place.
Alicia has a lot of dirt.
Alicia asks an important question and Cary gets sprung from prison.
Moving right along.
All of a sudden, Cary has a prison problem.
How amazing is it that this show continues to be this good after five seasons?
Things slow down just a little bit before the season finale.
Alicia has a rare day off.
God, you guys, it’s hard out there for a working mother.
The NSA is always listening.
“If I die before you, please don’t let them read ‘Wind Beneath My Wings’ at my funeral."
And now, the fallout and the grief.
The saddest, most shocking Good Wife episode ever.
For a firm that has splintered, they sure still see a lot of each other.
The show's key players are all losing their sense of morality.
Alicia takes on a Glee-like TV show who ripped off her Jonathan Coulton–esque musician clients and “legal jazz” ensues.
Last night's episode was the show's hundredth, and they pulled out all the stops.
We got some interesting insight into the history of the Florrick family and the future of Lockhart/Gardner.
A flustered Eli and a major Florrick/Agos victory? What a delightful episode.
Tensions are still high as we return to a typical case of the week episode.
This week’s episode had to be a step down from last week's. It had to be.
That might have been one of the best hours of television we’ve seen all year.
Diane Lockhart is unstoppable.
It's impressive how quickly Diane's world has unraveled.
Did you learn nothing from Stringer Bell, Alicia?
Put on your most powerful suit and stripiest tie, we’re back with season five of The Good Wife.
"How does it feel to be the First Lady of Illinois?"
Labor disputes, romance on the bus, and one very awkward funeral on this week's middling penultimate episode.
Things are getting mighty frosty in the race to close out season four.
“That’s why I love this place. Everybody sleeps with everybody else.”
Shenanigans in white tie, a whodunit in flashbacks, and loads of drunken Irishmen make for one of the loopiest episodes ever.
“There’s no need to be sorry about the truth.”
Cary and Kalinda sitting in a tree …
A densely packed episode wherein every character gets ruffled.
Arrrgh, bait and switch!
We’re officially ready to join the party of season four.
At least this week's episode was light on bankruptcy talk.
"No one disappears. They all come back like zombies.”
Two girls walk into a bar and everything changes.
There’s no place like home for the holidays.
Sloshed judges and teenage dreams make for a better than average episode.
“It really only looks like Brazil when it’s erect. Otherwise, it’s more like New Jersey.”
In which we enter the age of the feminist supervillain.
A courtroom-free episode, with drama to spare.
"Welcome to the lifeboat."
Plus: more psychosexual fun with food.
Starring: The Soft-Serve Incident heard ‘round the world.
When we last left this show, Kalinda was waiting in the dark, with a gun.
We're bothered that almost all of this season felt like an aimless run-up to what will essentially be a reboot.
Stop talking about quitting the show. No matter how convoluted the story lines get, the actors are just too freaking good to give up on.
Matthew Perry's character is a real bastard, isn't he?
Alicia still wants her old house back.
No one's immune to 'em. Not even Diane.
A beautifully complicated episode.
Welcome to Will’s enforced vision quest. It lasts a week. It is profound.
Adios, Mr. Gardner.
Who do you trust?
All hail Christine Baranski.
“I am the State’s Attorney. You don’t say no to me."
And Kalinda to the rescue.
"Even if it weren't wrong, it's not smart."
Kalinda sprinkles it on everyone.
And someone bangs a good Bin Laden. Really.
"You and I should get drinks, trade whore stories."
Half of the core cast is no longer interacting with the other half of the core cast.
And then vomit.

Will and Alicia finally get it on.
Alica and Kalinda, dunzo.
"Say something to make me love you again."
The secret is out.
Florrick has bimbo issues.
The show takes a step back from last week's revelations.
Kalinda's big secret gets revealed, and it's a doozy.
Team Cary and Kalinda all the way!
“What is this attraction with guns it’s so base."
"Will, I need a moment of your time."
"You seem like a nice woman from the outside and then I get a glimpse of the darkness within."
"Whenever I see that bitch I know we're in trouble."
"I want to make things different so you don't leave."
"You mean before or after I fellated my first guy?"
If you didn't cry as the firm rushed to free a convict from death row, you may not be human.
"I'm sorry. Was that in your opinion?"
"Went pantiless in court just to rebel."
"A lie always beats the truth."
"I thought the goal was to die with the most money."
"You shooting deer, or compensating for something?"
"As you well know, I don’t have a life."
"The stiffer the better."
Who says, "I love you" on a voice mail, anyway?
Writers have a long history of exacting their revenge on an actor by giving his character a Faces of Death–style ending.
The Good Wife, Scandal, and House of Cards feature a softened take on the '80s uniform.
"Like last year, they shot Josh. You're like, what the hell?"
He's got a heart of gold.
For $6 a month, you can get all the Good Wife you can handle.
Plus: How do you know what's streaming where?
One raised eyebrow from her, and you’re toast.
A Parks and Recreation crossover? Make it happen.
