He survived the wrath of Peter Florrick and the State's Attorney office, but Will Gardner (Josh Charles) was no match for the Illinois State Bar Association on Sunday's episode of The Good Wife. Faced with the possibility of losing his law license forever, Will took responsibility for that $45,000 loan and agreed to a six-month suspension. So what's next? How will his time away from the law change Will? How will

How long has this been in the works?
Robert King: We started this year thinking the theme would be about risk. It really turned fairly quickly into being about consequences. Our people have a lot of close scrapes and get off. This one felt like it should come down like a lot of bricks on Will's head. And we didn't want to just...
Archie Panjabi and Julianna Margulies
That sigh of relief coming from fans of The Good Wife Sunday was not over an Alicia (Julianna Margulies) and Will (Josh Charles) reunion, nor even a possible rekindling of the passions between Alicia and Peter (Chris Noth). It was for the CBS legal drama's real fan-favorite duo, Alicia and Kalinda (Archie Panjabi), and what appeared to be the beginning of a reconciliation for the former best friends.
Alicia didn't exactly...
Boy meets girl. Boy falls in love with girl. Boy waits 15 years for girl to separate from husband. And then girl breaks up with boy ... because she "can't." Yes, The Good Wife's Team Will fans had to close the door on "Willicia" almost as quickly as those elevator doors opened just a few months ago.
"We don't want this show to be in that Cheers mode of "when will they or won't they" kind of thing. As good as that is, we wanted to show the reality that Alicia has a lot of things pressing on her and a lot of guilt trips and emotions that factor into whether she carries on an affair," co-creator and executive producer Robert King tells TVGuide.com. "There was an emotional moment last year where Grace says, 'Mom, you need to protect us more.' That has been nagging at Alicia all this...
The Good Wife
You might say a love affair that kicks into high gear with a steamy embrace in an elevator is predestined to have its share of ups and downs. And sure enough, as external pressures start to close in on The Good Wife's Alicia Florrick (Julianna Margulies) and Will Gardner (Josh Charles), their clandestine courtship is in for a very bumpy ride.
After two seasons of anticipation, Willicia supporters — as opposed to those who continue rooting for a reunion of Alicia and her estranged philandering politician hubby Peter Florrick (Chris Noth) — are finally being rewarded for their patience with a passionate payoff each week. The once dutiful spouse at the center of the drama has been transformed into a woman who giggles(!) and says yes to lunchtime lust with her fellow lawyer — but there's still plenty working against the fledgling couple.

The end of The Good Wife's second season left a marriage and — more heartbreaking for fans — a close friendship in its wake as the revelation surfaced that Kalinda (Archie Panjabi) had once slept with Alicia's husband. But those fans still mourning the end of Alicia and Kalinda have a new twosome to watch out for: Kalinda and Eli Gold (Alan Cumming).
"I am as excited about Kalinda's relationship with Eli as I am devastated about her relationship with Alicia," Panjabi, who won an Emmy for her role last year and is nominated again this year, tells TVGuide.com.
"Here you've got two people who just instantly connect. They can read each other's minds and because of that, they're quite...

Alan Cumming has a clone. What other explanation is there, really, for how he can simultaneously play an integral part on The Good Wife, travel the world with a cabaret act, star in movies and stage productions, host PBS' Masterpiece Mystery! — oh, and do enough charitable work to be honored by the U.K. with an OBE (Officer of the Order of the British Empire) citation. "I like to stay busy, try different things, mix and match," acknowledges the exuberant Scottish actor. "I'm quite good at multitasking!"
The clone theory works for Robert and Michelle King, the married cocreators of the sophisticated, deeply satisfying sophomore CBS drama about love, law and politics in Chicago.
