In Season 7 episode 10 of “The Good Wife,” Eli Gold (Alan Cumming) had a big revelation for Alicia (Julianna Margulies), which left her shocked. In the end, she was only able to muster the words, “Get out.” [Spoiler Alert!]

TV Line reveals that at the end of the 10th episode, titled “KSR,” Eli told Alicia that six years ago, Will Gardner (Josh Charles) left her a voicemail saying that he loved her and would sacrifice everything just to be with her. Eli said that he erased the message to avoid ruining Peter’s (Chris Noth) run. He said that he regrets everything and does not want to get in the way of her happiness again.

Executive producers Robert and Michelle King said in a report by Entertainment Weekly that a huge part of the reason for Eli’s revelation remains circumstantial. Eli might have been affected with Courtney’s departure back to Los Angeles. He might also have realised that he is trying to separate Alicia from her new love interest, Jason Crouse (Jeffrey Dean Morgan).

Although Jason accepted Courtney’s offer for a two-month job out of state, fans can expect him to be around for the remainder of the season when the show returns in 2016. CarterMatt states that the actor will become a regular in “The Walking Dead” but can still continue to appear in “The Good Wife” if the show is renewed.

BuddyTV notes that viewers will find out Eli’s reason for telling Alicia the truth when “The Good Wife” returns on Jan. 10, 2016. Episode 11, titled “Iowa,” will most likely show whether Alicia can forgive Eli for what he just said or whether it will be the end between them.

She might also walk away from Peter permanently, despite the risk of ruining his presidential campaign. She is expected to need some time to grieve. Things may have been different if she got the voicemail before. She would have left Peter to be with Will. Will may have still been alive. There might be more revelations dating back to Season 1.

“The Good Wife” will air next on Jan. 10, 2016 at 9PM on CBS. More updates and details are expected soon.
