Ugh, TGW. First you break Alicia and Kalinda up and keep twisting the knife every now and then with moments like this week's 'She didn't mention anything', and now you touch Will and Diane? Ugh ugh ugh. Make it stop. I just want everyone to be happy and I want Will and Diane to be the best platonic powercouple in the world and I want them to PWN Alicia and Cary while they're at it (sometimes).

Never say they're afraid to push the button and then follow through.

THAT IS EXACTLY WHAT IT FELT LIKE WAHHH!

However, it was...bold. I think there can be some debate about whether this is good Will characterization; I would not have thought that he would treat the platonic love of his life like this.

Then again, it could easily be said that the platonic love of Will's life is the law firm itself, or even: he as a named partner of renown and respect.

Diana first opting to leave and then betraying him -- it does make some sense. And much as I actually like Will (he's certainly a much better person than most of his real-life counterparts I know) we know he's not afraid to lash out, or dip in, as the case may be...

The Kalinda/Alicia thing -- I cannot forgive the Kings the dastardly husband storyline for Kalinda, and the respective handling of Kalinda and Alicia as friends and confidantes. Do not want!

There are things that ~bros don't do to each other, and talking about the money is the one thing that Diane should not have done.

Ooh! This is good; this makes a lot of sense.

Perhaps it's just my perspective (I come from a world where no pro bono work exists, and no one gives a flying fuck about public image with regard to righteousness -- only to rights enforced and cases won) but I'd always considered Will a little...soft is not quite the right term, but maybe "emotional" is? Certainly more so than Diane.

She weighed her options very carefully, and like all of us she automatically, naturally assumed the other party would do the same: Even though she knew Will would be angry, I don't think she foresaw at all his reaction here.

But you've laid it out beautifully.

(It's why I'm also 100% certain that when everyone departs - if that's how they play it - Kalinda will be there with Will, watching his 'back'.)

Kalinda would fall into more archaic rules of how to stand by people and how not to, yeah...let me check out that old post; I think I do recall it.
