Good Wife Scoop On Kalinda's Erotically 'Charged' Reunion, Other Guest Stars

Business will once again (perhaps) merge with pleasure for The Good Wife‘s Kalinda (Emmy winner Archie Panjabi) when Jill Flint (Royal Pains) reprises her role of FBI agent Lana Delaney in this season’s 14th episode.

The catalyst for the latest visit from Lana, who last was seen in the Season 1 finale getting close with Kalinda behind a self-storage room door? “Kalinda’s finding that she’s losing a resource in the state’s attorney office in Cary, so she goes to a higher friend,” previews series cocreator Robert King.

Pumping Lana for dirt, though, does not come without complications. “What comes with that,” says King, “is obviously the sexual interest the two have in each other.”

All told, King describes the storyline as “very charged, because it involves not just politics but also eroticism.”

Yes, he said the E-word.

Scoop: America Ferrera Joining The Good Wife

Other casting scooplets from King:

* If only because pilot season is starting to snatch up the best actors, the Good Wife bosses don’t expect to make Friday Night Lights alum Scott Porter a series regular. Still, viewers can look forward to a “battle royale between Blake and Kalinda. Obviously I don’t want to give way who wins, but [you can] guess!”

* Michael J. Fox, already booked for an encore this spring as the crafty Louis Canning, will make a third appearance toward season’s end.

* King hopes to have Martha Plimpton (Raising Hope) reprise her role of insurance company mouthpiece Patti Nyholm in Episode 21. Also on his wish list: former U.S. Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld, for “an episode about moral relativism, about what is considered torture and what is not.” And no, Jack Bauer is not the defendant.

  • Kalinda is much like a wild card right now. They really need to tell us more about her before season two ends.

  • This show is just getting better and better. I love that it keeps it fresh. I hope this show sticks around for awhile…

  • Losing Cary? So he’s for sure going with Diane? This means the firm split is permanent, too?

    • I hope not. It’s weird that in the middle of Season 2 they decide to make such a radical approach like splitting the firm. It seems more like a Season 4 or 5 move. But The Good Wife is one of the best hours on TV so I trust their decisions. I like Cary being on the oppositie side. It’s kind of like The Practice when they were all the defense but were best friends with one of the main prosecutors(Lara Flynn Boyle). That was a good show.

  • I really love this show, it’s so well written and well acted, but is spoilt by the fact that they seem scared almost to show us Kalinda kissing another woman. i wish they’d stop being so reserved about it. It really bothers me, because it’s like they are saying there is something wrong with it, and that’s why they haven’t showed it so far. instead, they pan the camera down to their feet. would they do that if it were a man and a woman??! no, i doubt very much that they would.

    I was annoyed by that pan away too and it clearly is something that they wouldn’t do with a woman and a man but they showed Kalinda actually kissing a woman earlier this season in the episode where MJF guest starred so I guess they took the criticism of that seen in the finale seriously.

    I still don’t get why they were considering making Porter a series regular. He’s not a bad actor but Blake is an annoying thug and way too reckless and violent for me to buy that he hasn’t gotten into some serious trouble with the law or that the firm wouldn’t eventually fire him because employing someone with his tactics would damage its reputation.

  • Jill Flint is one of the sexiest stars on television. The part she played on The Good Wife with feet was one of the sexiest things on tv.
    She has the most georgeous bodies on television.. She is #1 in my book.

  • Blake and Kalinda- after Blake is on the floor after Kalinda hits him with the bat she asks him a question. What did he say? I listen to the section 20 times and could not make it out.
