The Good Wife Season 3 Spoilers: Will & Alicia Getting Together?

The Good Wife‘s Josh Charles: Will Has a “Deep Love” for Alicia

Julianna Margulies and Josh Charles

It’s been a busy — and heart-wrenching — couple of weeks on The Good Wife.

Moments after becoming Mrs. State’s Attorney, Alicia (Julianna Margulies) learned about Peter’s one-night-stand with Kalinda (err, Leila) and kicked him out. Last week, she drew enemy lines against Kalinda (Archie Panjabi) after two years of friendship. In the midst of the blow-ups, the tears and the divorce talk, has a chance for Alicia and Will (Josh Charles) to be together finally emerged?

“The nature of what’s transpired with Alicia and Peter, Alicia and Kalinda — these things push Alicia and Will closer together as friends,” Charles tells “I think — at its core — there is a deep love that Will has for her and I think he cares about her.

“Whether that means they should be together or not is sort of irrelevant to the fact that I do think that that feeling is very real and true.”

After 15 years and their infamous issue of bad timing, it looks like Alicia will at least consider reuniting with her law school love. But it won’t be so easy. Yes, they shared a passionate kiss last season and had discussions about trying to make something work. However, when Alicia challenged Will to “show me the plan,” she never received his second voicemail, and Alicia tried to make things work with Peter.

The Good Wife: Will Alicia ever forgive Kalinda? Archie Panjabi isn’t ruling anything out

Now that her bad husband is definitely out of the apartment — and out of the picture — can Will finally show her the plan? “While some of the obstacles float away, such as her and Peter moving towards a separation, at the same time, that baggage that Alicia had expressed at the end of last season is still there. She may be right about a lot of that,” Charles says. “That doesn’t change the feelings, it just complicates them more. How that happens and how that will work out remains to be seen with what our writers want to do.”

The other big question is whether Will is really the best match for Alicia. It’s been years since they went to Georgetown together and now Alicia is a working mother of two teenagers and much, if not all, of Will’s life is devoted to his work. And then there are those references to Will’s checkered past (courtesy of Blake, natch): namely, secrets from his old law firm in Baltimore.

Although these revelations have surprised, and maybe frustrated, some fans, Charles appreciates that Will is “not just some white-knight alternative” to Peter.

The Good Wife: Alicia’s bad timing strikes again

“I’ll see fans and they’ll say stuff: ‘Hey, are you a good guy or a bad guy?’ ‘Hey, you’re really shady in that one,'” he says. “The reality, to me, is he’s not really interested in the morality of things as much as people want him to be. … We’re invested in him and possibly Alicia. How she feels about him affects us as an audience.”

Whether they want them or not, Charles says fans will begin to get answers about Will next season. “We’ve learned some, but we haven’t really learned a lot. We’ve been told a lot of things by a lot of different people that have a lot of different agendas,” he says. “I love where this episode leads us, leading into next year. We’ll start to learn more about Will’s backstory and when we do, I think it will be revealing and enlightening about the character.”

Charles says he’s ready for whatever direction the writers go. “Look at what they’ve just done with Alicia and Kalinda; some could say that’s a risky move but I think you take risky moves when you have strength in your own ability to sustain and create material,” he says. “These characters can sustain risky moves, risky moves that don’t feel arbitrary in my opinion. They feel right; they feel connected with what we’ve seen already.”

The Good Wife: Will Alicia Ever Forgive Kalinda? Archie Panjabi Isn’t Ruling Anything Out

Archie Panjabi

First, she took care of Peter (with help from some very tough packing tape). Then, on Tuesday’s episode of The Good Wife, Alicia (Julianna Margulies) dealt with the other woman, and her former best friend, Kalinda (Archie Panjabi). But will she ever be able to forgive and forget their tryst?

“The predictable thing about The Good Wife is how unpredictable The Good Wife is,” Panjabi tells, “so I don’t rule anything out.”

Panjabi says “there were a few tears” on set the day she and Margulies filmed the emotional scene in which Alicia confronted her. It was a moment fans had been anticipating — and dreading — since Blake first dropped the bombshell about her and Peter weeks ago: “You slept with my husband. You do not say anything after that, you do not,” Alicia said to Kalinda before beginning to tear up. “I swear I will scream at the top of my lungs if you don’t get out of my office right now.”

Of course the biggest question is, now that she and Alicia are stuck together, how the two will function in the office. One thing’s for sure: Panjabi says Kalinda won’t continue to explain herself. She’ll take a step back while Alicia cools down. “She knows there is nothing she can say,” Panjabi says.

Although it’s unclear whether Alicia will ever really forgive her, Panjabi says she has been pleasantly surprised by the fan reaction in spite of the fallout.

“For some reason, people haven’t taken it out against Kalinda. I think they are surprised at what Kalinda’s done, but they don’t seem to be completely furious with her,” Panjabi says. “I think people are sort of let down, but they are not annoyed or angry with her. And if you think about what she’s done, she’s kind of broken up a whole family.”

On the flip side, Panjabi says Alicia and Kalinda’s separation will allow time for new friendships for both characters. And unlike her rival investigator Blake, Sophia (Kelli Giddish) will be much more of a friendly investigator who will bring out a “new side of Kalinda,” according to Panjabi.

Then there’s Cary (Matt Czuchry). He and Kalinda have always put their work before their personal lives, but Panjabi says that’s about to change. As for anything more between them? The actress isn’t saying, but let’s not forget that kiss from earlier this season.

    i boke my heart to see archie panjabi’s character cry…she lost her only real friend….. i think they will slowly make up…b/c there is no real point to having her on the show if they are not friends.

    I knew that the two of them would get together, they just took their time at doing it. I’m just so upset that Kalinda didn’t tell Alicia sooner, I hope they get back together they were truely good friends.

    Alicia is intelligent and realizes that her trust levels and respect for the her feelings have been tossed over a cliff. She’s the kind of woman who needs these values in a love relationship. She’ll need some time and good experiences to be able to trust again. Will, your time has come IF you can truly deal with the importance of her children and also work on THAT plan…….and, as well negotiate above differences…….Will has the sensitivity for other’s feelings to help Alicia relate emotional levels more openly now ……….as well as sensually…………Can’t wait to see how the writers develop the growth of these two beautiful individual characters as well as their steamy relationship.

     /  October 18, 2011

    If Alicia indeed slept with Will and IF she continues toying with Peter, I think season 2 is where I’ll leave this show. I have seen real life stories where women stick to the marriage through it all and FORCE their husbands to style up. Such stories are truly inspirational and I was glad it was coming to the big screen but it looks like their is too much infidelity in America and that sex is treated to loosely that viewers couldn’t stand a pure Alicia. Time to move on

  21. asks

     /  October 18, 2011

    why is it called the good wife anyway? it looks like she is moving away from that. maybe peter should marry a REAL good wife. I don’t support what he did, but Alicia needs to make up her mind.

  22. Nay

     /  October 30, 2011

    Will is sexy as

  23. i love those 2 2gether n” i can’t wait 4 season’z goin’ 2 ho………………..t.

    just finished season two was so relieved she finally stopped being a doormat and got with will hope they can stay together he is so complicated. love kalinda hope she will be forgiven

    I want Alicia to make up with her husband. One night stand doesn’t mean she shd separate from her husband after enduring all the pain she went through. It was after they became friends so she doesn’t ve to divorce her husband as a good wife the title has. If she divorces her husband, then this movie is not “The Good Wife” as the title is. Infact I luv this movie; Alicia n her family.

    I hope that Alicia realizes that she does want Will back. He seems to have deeper feelings for her than she has for gim or is willing to admit so far. The end of the season should bring them back to face their true feelings for one another….

  27. Jade

     /  March 21, 2012

    I agree jay, I am hanging for Alicia to let go of Peter and embrace a new life, she always seems to be thinking of everyone and I liked that when she was with will, she finally was doing something for herself. I really hope the finale will show them back on.

    Also wouldn’t mind if Karey came back to Lockhart and Gardener, I wish he was involved more in the show. Really liked the storyline of him and Calinda.

  28. vera

     /  March 24, 2012

    i too love all the characters, but i cant help loving the relationship between alicia and will…. i really would like to see them together!!!!!!

  29. Ri

     /  April 23, 2012

    I would love to see this tv series to end with Alicia and Will together,they fit.
