I will miss Will on The Good Wife. I was shocked to see what happened on last night's show. Sometimes I didn't know whether to dislike Will or love him, but I will definitely miss that character a lot. The best to Josh Charles for his future endeavors. The best of luck to you always and I will still be watching The Good Wife. Just will miss Will a lot!
