During last night’s episode of The Good Wife, it seemed that fans had to say goodbye to Archie Panjabi’s Kalinda when she decided to flee after turning in evidence against Lemond Bishop. By the end of the episode, Kalinda had her final kiss with Cary, called Diane one last time, and left Alicia a note. But was that really her exit?
The long and short of it is: We’re not sure. But we do know that last night wasn’t the last time you will see Kalinda this season. When EW asked whether Kalinda will appear in the show’s upcoming finale, executive producer Michelle King said, “Yes. We will see her.” Whether we’ll see her in a flashback, a flashforward, or the present day, however, remains unknown.
Executive producer Robert King did elaborate a bit, saying, “[The finale] answers a lot of questions regarding Kalinda, which I think there will be some mystery about. Has she truly left the show? Or are there still beats to be handled with, or story elements to be handled with her? So [the finale] answers the question of Kalinda for the year.”
Does this mean we might still get one final Alicia-Kalinda moment? We can only hope.
