Spoiler alert! The jaw-dropping, emotionally wrenching fifth season of CBS's The Good Wife fittingly ended with two more delicious surprises. Who would have guessed that...

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.
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.

"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.
