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.”
