The Good Wife: An Irish Wake for Will Gardner

E: Nope, it’s not the title of the new episode. It’s merely a suggestion.  At 8:50, let’s have a little private celebration for the fans – an Irish wake, if you will.  For Will, for Josh Charles and the excellent work he did for us for so many years, for the show that was, for the show to come.

So pick your poison, Good Wife fans, and send up a toast to the universe.  Shots like Kalinda and Alicia?  Scotch like Will?  Red wine?  Or just toss around a baseball; it doesn’t have to be alcohol, just something that feels meaningful to the show.  Hoyas for the Georgetowners?  Maybe it’s a little waltz around the living room with your own version of Diane.  But before the show has us all sobbing like babies again, let’s take a little moment together.   I don’t know about you, but I think we’re going to need it.

    Hear, hear!
    About to watch it now, settling in with a glass of red.

    I just watched it – since, you know… I live in Italy and I couldn’t possibly stay up half the night to watch it when it aired, not to mention the all disaster of having to use a proxy to do it – and I’m just as incredulous as I was last week.
    I liked this episode, just as I liked “Dramatics, your honor”, for a whole lot of different reasons: we got to see the immediate aftermath of Will’s death and the reactions from a lot of characters.
    But the cruelty of that last call, I admit, it’s too much. Now, Alicia will probably wonder about it for the rest of her life. And that it’s just cruel.

      Yep. Sorry to take so long to say so little, but that’s exactly right. She’ll wonder about it forever and no one will ever know the truth. The meanness! Ugh!

        Don’t worry about the late reply, or the shortness of it… it’s not important.
        But yeah… the meanness. They’ve done it, this time, even more so than with *the* episode.
