*Spoiler alert: do not read on if you’ve not seen the final episode of Series 7 of The Good Wife*
The Good Wife ended with a slap around the face last night.
Literally – Diane Lockhart landed a stinging blow around Alicia Florrick’s face after she revealed her husband was cheating in the middle of Peter’s court case. Unexpected? You betcha. We talk more about the ending here, but here’s a look at how the finale of the sassy drama went down online.
The sense of loss was immediate
Just finished the final episode of the Good Wife and I miss Alicia Florrick already

OF COURSE there were tears over Will’s dream sequence return
So a fond farewell to The Good Wife. I confess to shedding a few tears over the 'very special guest appearance' in the final episode.

The best part about The Good Wife finale was definitely Alicia resolving her issues over Will but it was still so emotional?@MrJoshCharles

Watching with wine was seen as the correct way to send off Alicia
Final ever episode of the good wife 🙁 #withwine

But some felt it needed a sweeter ending
Well that was utterly shit. I loved The Good Wife so so much, but as a final episode that was awful. So SOUR. I've got a headache. Bah.

Indeed, there’s a sense of struggle over the unhappy ending
The good wife doesn't have a happy ending and idk if I'm okay with that or not cause it's nice it's different but Alicia :((

Welp, #TheGoodWife effectively called my bluff on saying I appreciate unhappy endings.

Then some started thinking about all the hours of Alicia time
156 episodes?! I've spent almost a week of my life watching Alicia & her hair.
Time well spent. #TheGoodWife

As well as pondering what might have happened beyond that fade to black
just watched final…my take is she remains The Good Wife….

Some are just re-writing things in their own minds
*rewrites The Good Wife so Alicia and Will run away and get married after season 1*

All in all, this is a pretty good summary…
Got my glass of wine for the last ep of The Good Wife. It ended at the right time but I'll miss it a whole bunch. pic.twitter.com/aH0Pqe95Xm
