Spoiler Alert: Good Wife's Newest Dynamic Duo

The Good Wife is giving Kalinda a new work spouse this season, and it’s a match made in acting heaven.

“There will be a bonding between Kalinda and Eli Gold,” executive producer Robert King tells TVLine of Archie Panjabi’s private eye and Alan Cumming’s campaign strategist. “Eli’s in-house now [at Lockhart Gardner] and he needs an investigator at times. So they form an interesting friendship.”

“We realized when we were [mapping out the season] that they never even had a scene together,” King adds of the pair, both of whom were nominated for Emmys this year (Panjabi’s gunning for her second consecutive gold statue). “What’s fun about the show is you get to mix different relationship cocktails. And there just seemed to be something right about Archie and Alan and the way that they would be drawn together.”

But make no mistake: This matchup is all business, no pleasure — at least for the time being. “Let’s not go there yet,” King says with a laugh. “We’re seeing how it all works.”

    Dynamic duo indeed!!! This is what we all suspected, and I think it will be perfect. Two of the best characters on the show working together… all I can say is, poor Alicia! This, combined with the inevitable Will-hotel-room tension, is going to be very difficult for her. She will need a friend at Lockhart/Gardner for sure. Diane?! Hmm.

  2. Katharine says:

    YES! It will be all kinds of spectacular… the two fiercest characters on the show finally meet. Can’t wait!!

  3. Lorie says:

    Very smart move. Can’t wait to see how their relationship develops.

  4. Rebecca says:

    What about Kalinda and Cary? Need more Matt Czuchry…

    • Lisa says:

      The writers turned Carey into a complete douche last season, so who cares about him unless they fix his character.

      • Jon says:

        I completely disagree. I loved Carey last season! His character was so layered. He was bitter with Alicia but still helps out Kalinda knowing that she works for the “enemy”. Although, the vendetta against Alicia is getting old. Hope they scrap that from season 3.

  5. Alicia says:

    When a HBIC and a BAMF team up, everyone wins. Can’t wait.

  6. Becky says:

    Brilliant. Can. Not. Wait.

  7. BabyGoz says:

    I’ve been waiting for this day!! Match made in heaven! :D

  8. DL says:

    Awesome! So excited for this season!

  9. FP says:

    Fantastic news! They’re my favorite characters.

  10. xav says:

    Thank goodness! they’re going to be amazing together.

  11. Brad says:

    What took so long. This will be really good.

  12. BamBam says:

    The only actor I like on the show is Archie so more Archie please.

  13. DotDotDot says:

    Loooooooooove it!

  14. Amy says:

    This will be absolutely brilliant! I can’t wait to see their friendship develop.

  15. Monique says:

    As long as nothing sexual happens between these two I’m down with Eli and Kalinda.

  16. Cate says:

    And the two Brits in the cast get to work together too!! I just love Kalinda and Eli and they could be a lot of fun together, but as both are incredibly cagey, their jousting will be interesting!

  17. WiWri says:

    I can just see Eli raising his eyebrow and smiling that sly smile.

  18. Ella says:

    Awesome move – these are the best 2 characters on the show so wo0t!
