The Good Wife: Alicia's "Tremendous Loss" Leads to Lots of Questions

[WARNING: This story contains major spoilers from Sunday's episode of The Good Wife. Read at your own risk.]

It started with a voicemail and it ended with a voicemail.

OK, technically "Willicia" started when the former law school chums shared a passionate kiss in The Good Wife's 17th episode. However, it was only after Will (Josh Charles) left that voicemail declaring his love for Alicia (Julianna Margulies) in the Season 1 finale that the duo began their "conscious coupling" and eventual relationship in Season 3.

Weekend TV: Good Wife, Midwife, Walking Dead and Helix Finales

In a sudden, shocking (and heaven be praised, unspoiled) twist, this tremendous fifth season of CBS's The Good Wife has shifted from the dueling-firms spectacle of Alicia-vs-Will to the gut-wrenching reality of Alicia — and everyone else in her universe — grieving Will. Her former lover and boss-turned-rival (a succulent role for Josh Charles, who will be terribly missed) was the victim of a courtroom shooting, which in a savage irony was perpetrated by the vulnerable young client (Hunter Parrish) Will was busily defending. Will died doing what he loved best, you might say with his boots on — although one of his shoes was blown off in the violent melee — and now it's time to mourn.

Can The Good Wife Survive After Sunday's Shocking Death?

[Warning: This story contains major spoilers from Sunday's episode of The Good Wife. Read at your own risk!]

"Willicia" is dead. No, really.

Sure, in one sense of the word, the will-they-or-won't-they dynamic between Julianna Margulies' and Josh Charles' characters on The Good Wife was laid to rest in October when Will discovered that his former lover and longtime colleague was leaving the firm to start her own. (You know, the episode where he called her "poison.") But their long-running and extremely complicated personal and professional relationship came to a sudden and stunning halt on Sunday's episode when Will's client (Hunter Parrish) went on a shooting rampage in the courtroom that left his lawyer dead.

We stand here today to pay our respects to the former TV coupling known as "Willicia." After four years of riveting will-they-or-won't-they tension on The Good Wife, any possibility of a romantic future for Alicia (Julianna Margulies) and Will (Josh Charles) faded — at least for the foreseeable future — the minute he found out she was planning to leave the firm with Cary (Matt Czuchry) and take all of their top clients with her. But don't worry, fans! Chicago's 16th most eligible bachelor did not walk away from that stinging betrayal empty-handed. These days, Will is sporting a... read more
