‘The Good Wife’ is coming to an end after 7 seasons tonight, May 8, so we’re taking a look back at the show’s most jaw-dropping moments.
Over the course of the past 7 seasons, The Good Wife has dropped twist after twist. From Will Gardner’s sudden death to Kalinda and Alicia’s final scene together, these are the top Good Wife moments fans will never be able to forget.
1. Will Gardner’s death
It was the twist no one saw coming. In the middle of season 5, Will was shot dead by his own client in the middle of the courtroom. Will had been a main character since the beginning of The Good Wife, and no one could have predicted he would actually be killed off the show.
2. When Will finds out Alicia and Cary were starting their own firm
In one of the most intense and terrific scenes in TV history, Will completely lost it when he discovered Alicia and Cary were leaving. Will exploded and threw everything off of Alicia’s desk in a fit of rage. Will fired Alicia, and Florrick & Agos was born.
3. Alicia and Kalinda’s final scene
Rumblings of a feud between Julianna Marguiles and Archie Panjabi have been going around for years, but the final scene between Alicia and Kalinda pretty much confirmed the rumors. The two were supposed to be sitting by the bar together, and the whole scene was clearly CGIed. The actresses were not in the same room together, and it left fans pissed.
4. Eli deletes Will’s voicemail to Alicia
Right before Will’s death, Will made a call to Alicia. He told her that he loved her and wanted to be with her. Eli, in an effort to save Peter’s campaign and not have Alicia running off with Will, deleted the voicemail. It was the last time Will ever said “I love you” to Alicia.
5. Diane Lockhart loses her chance to become judge
Diane was so happy to have been given an offer to run as a judge in the upcoming election. She thought she had it in the bag. However, the Democratic committee eventually turned away because of her firm’s clients. Burn.
6. Cary Agos gets arrested
The beloved Cary Agos was arrested in the season 6 premiere on a major drug charge. The State’s Attorney really wanted drug lord Lemond Bishop, but it was Cary who became a victim.
7. Eli tells Alicia he deleted Will’s voicemail
When Eli finally came clean about the voicemail, it was one of the most jaw-dropping Good Wife scenes ever. After Eli’s big confession, Alicia only said, “Get out.”
8. Will and Alicia finally admit their feelings
It was the elevator scene watched around the world. Will and Alicia finally gave in to their intense sexual chemistry and had the hottest makeout session ever in an elevator.
9. Alicia discovers Peter and Kalinda slept together
Alicia thought Kalinda was her one true ally — until she found out Kalinda slept with her husband, Peter. That fact changed everything for Kalinda and Alicia. Their friendship was never the same.
