One of the articles linked above indicated that he was going to be in a four episode arc.
The best thing about this season has been the Alicia/Will war. I really hated to see that end.
Casting spoilers need spoiler tags, anything from the preview is a spoiler. It's in a sticky for this forum.
I just watched this weeks episode and I am shocked and saddened.
I love Josh Charles!
That's some serious hate you have going on there. This show is much too good to pass on just because of one actor I might not care for.
So glad I stopped watching before this.
I love him too! It helps that he is from Baltimore and loves the O's
Did not see that coming.
But I'm always amazed how easy it is to grab a gun from a courtroom bailiff.
I usually don't, but, I got this spoiled by three of the normal things I read/watch by the time I got to this last night. they mentioned it on a local newscast. I saw it mentioned on my Yahoo aggregator, and on another news web page I read from time to time. On Yahoo, the headline read something like "Death of..." without mentioning the name, but there was a photo of Charles next to the article, so it was easy to guess. So I watched with my wife last night and she had no idea, so that was kind of fun at least.
I like that they killed him off rather than leave him an opening to be alive. It's much cleaner to me. And I'm glad they didn't drag out his dying over an episode or two. Much better to make it quick.
So I wonder what happens now? Do the two firms merge? Is there going to be a power struggle between Diane and the other partners? And does that kill off the investigation of Peter?
Here too. And this week I knew it was going to be really late. It almost always is when March Madness is in full swing. Expect the same next week. In fact the basketball game almost went into OT. It would have been even MORE screwed up.
They've been doing this for at least 20 years. They insist on running their 7 o'clock show on nights when there is potentially a late running game. It annoys me, but I get whey they do it. I just pad and not worry about it anymore.
Not me, I love the Canning episodes. His duels with Alicia are epic.
I'm still feeling a bit of the shock here. In my mind, the show was about Alicia, yes. But it has always also been about the push/pull between her and Will, professionally and personally. We have learned many things about Alicia based on how she interacts with Will. How she reacts to his moral failings. I am one who has always felt their relationship was the emotional core of the show, so this is going to be a tough one.
I would have been like, 'Peter died? Who that's too bad.' But this is a lot rougher. Even this year, which is likely the best so far, has been awesome because Alicia struck out on her own AND how it impacted Will and Lockhart Gardner. Not how it impacted Diane, though I love her and will be glad if she gets more time now.
Two more things.
1) Racking my brain, I think this is comparable to if Mad Men had killed off Peggy at the end of last season. Though Don Draper is the main character, she is definitely number 2, and we learn a lot about Don by his interactions with her.
2) If TGW tries to initiate a love interest (with new DA guy or anyone else), I think it will totally crash and burn. Please. Please. Do Not Go There.
Excellent analogy. I always felt that the core of MM is Don's relationship with women, and especially Peggy. TGW has always been about the triangle between Alicia, Will and Peter.

Not sure where they will go with love interests in the show. Carey and Kalinda, for some reason just don't interest me. The relationship seems a big forced. I could see them getting Alicia and Peter closer
But the S5 preview seem to refute that
Thinking more about Will's death, it explains last week's episode where we had flashbacks of Alicia meeting Will and him inviting her to join the firm. It should have been a clue that something big was going to happen with Will.
Unfortunately, the episode was spoilered by a couple of sources for me.
Still a great episode. It will be interesting to see where they go from here.
Thank you for your advice.
No problem. Sorry if was snarky.
I wonder if Jill Hennessy's character, Rayna Hecht, who's now starting a firm with Elsbeth Tascioni, will show up again this season.
