Archie Panjabi Previews New Insight into Kalinda on The Good Wife

at . Comments

Forget the impending divorce between Peter and Alicia.

Most fans of The Good Wife were far more traumatized by the split of Alicia and Kalinda toward the end of season two, as the latter's promiscuous past came out and the finale concluded with these two nothing but (awkward) co-workers.

Where will things stand on September 25, when the best drama on network television returns? Previews Archie Panjabi:

"The ball is really in Alicia's court as opposed to Kalinda's court, so I think Kalinda is constantly testing the waters to see how Alicia is going to react to her. That will be the challenge in Season 3, how much is played out in front of the other workmates, whether they do talk or they don't, and whether they make that effort to work together."

Aside from Kalinda's fractured relationship with Alicia, the character will be interacting closely with two other fan favorites: Eli and Cary.

Panjabi tells TV Guide Kalinda "definitely likes" working with Eli, as these two will share scenes for the first time this fall. What about Cary and any romantic possibilities?
Cary's matured now and the question will be: Is she genuinely attracted to him for sex and love or is it brotherly companionship?"

The Emmy-winning actress concludes that we'll get more "insight" into Kalinda on season three, which, for fans of the fascinating series, can't kick off soon enough.


Alicia is an asset to her husband, her work, her friends. She is supposed to be reliable, professional, smart, for everyone else's benefit, and with no needs of her own. Who's get her back? She is just supposed to martyr herself for her husband's benefit? Please. Alicia is taking some risks. They are not smart risks right now, and that makes sense because she is finding her new sea legs. She is going to have make some changes if she wants to be more than a tool for everyone else's gain. Powerful people make mistakes. Its how they recover that makes them powerful.


Wait guys! It's one thing to sleep with a guy that is NOT married after spliting up with your husband that has slept with many other conquests, and another thing to behave as her ex-to-be-husband. What he did is an all other thing! And Kalinda, well we are in a grey zone here. She sure did know that the guy was married but she had no idea who his wife was. Her big mistake was, in my opinion, to lie to Alicia all this time. She should have been honest sooner. But Alicia doesnt cheat on anybody. She's been pretty honest with everyone and has kept it together for too long. She has the right to live for herself. As to be a good mother to her kids, I think she already did a pretty good job considering what their lives turned out to be because of their father's insatiable needs! Anyway, cant wait to watch season3 !


Alicia is a cheater in season 2 early episodes she kissed will and probably slept with him in the season 2 finale that's cheating so I don't see why she just won't forgive kalinda for sleeping with peter she just being a bitch.


Alicia will be a hypocrite if she sleeps with Will, but continues to shun Kalinda for sleeping with her husband. Keep Alicia above the fray romantically with anyone other than Peter, and concentrate on being a good mother and lawyer. Her new hairstyle makes her look cute, instead of a clasic beauty as in the past two years.


Can't wait!
