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.

Where does The Good Wife go from here?
After the earth-shattering events of Sunday's episode, that seems to be the question on pretty much every fan's mind. Fortunately, a tantalizing new promo previewing the remaining seven episodes of the season tries to answer that and shows that there is a lot to look forward to...

"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.
In what initially comes off as a Habitat for Inhumanity — fueled by reality-competition juices that upstage the do-gooder impulse of neighborhood home renovation — NBC's derivative American Dream Builders takes its visual cues from Extreme Makeover Home Edition (airing in that show's old time period, Sundays at 8/7c), complete with an elaborate weekly reveal, although the only bus here is the one the contestants repeatedly throw each other under. Dream Builders' emotional dynamic is more attuned to Celebrity Apprentice in its nightmare blueprint of clashing egos getting in the way of a job well done.
Rat out your ex-lover's cheating and lying husband or risk going to jail for him? Will Gardner's latest dilemma on The Good Wife (Sundays, 9/8c, CBS) may seem like a no-brainer, but, as is usually true on network's most complex legal drama, things are hardly what they appear.
"He truly is risking disbarment or jail, and he's risking it for people that he is not thrilled with anymore," executive producer Michelle King tells TVGuide.com. "It's the worst place in the world for him to be."
And sadly, a change of...

Sure, everyone knows that Thanksgiving is this week. But fans of The Good Wife have another reason to be thankful aside from the requisite turkey and stuffing coming to a dinner table near you. This Sunday marks the drama's 100th episode (9/8c, CBS), and boy, does the show deliver. Already in the middle of an acclaimed, high-octane season, the 100th episode includes the return of several fan-favorite guest stars, a suspenseful (and very personal!) legal case, some juicy new...

It's official, Toto. Alicia Florrick & Co. aren't in
Kansas Lockhart/Gardner anymore.
On last week's episode of The Good Wife (Sundays, 9/8c, CBS), Alicia (Julianna Margulies), Cary (Matt Czuchry) and the rest of the team finally moved out of Alicia's apartment and into office space. However, fans expecting their firm's headquarters to be some variation of Lockhart/Gardner 2.0 were surprised to see the group move into ... an old t-shirt factory.
"Obviously we wanted a 100 percent contrast from Lockhart/Gardner to show that...
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...
