'Good Wife' Mini Gay-Cap: Kalinda Talks Dirty to Dana

Arguably the best show on network television, The Good Wife continues to scintillate and tease, not merely with riveting storylines but with the promise of an encounter between pop culture’s hottest boot-clad bisexual investigator ever, Kalinda (Archie Panjabi) and the sexy new ASA at the state’s attorney’s office Dana (Monica Raymund).

Arguably the best show on network television, The Good Wife continues to scintillate and tease, not merely with riveting storylines but with the promise of an encounter between pop culture’s hottest boot-clad bisexual investigator ever, Kalinda (Archie Panjabi) and the sexy new ASA at the state’s attorney’s office Dana (Monica Raymund).

For the past couple of episodes Kalinda and Dana have had an “I’ll scratch your back, you scratch mine,” type of slightly manipulative flirtation that looked as though it would end last week when Dana told her coworker and fling Cary (Matt Czuchry) in so many words that she’s a dyed-in-the-wool, full-on heterosexual.

But this week Kalinda’s flirtation with Dana escalated to tequila shots followed by the old trail of heels and hose to the bedroom – but don’t get too excited. Here’s a mini re-cap.

Whiskey Tango Foxtrot ep. 3.9 - Some Spoilers...

The Good Wife aficionados may recall that Kalinda and Dana began trading secrets when Kalinda was attempting to discover what the State’s Attorney had on her boss Will Gardner, who may or not be under investigation in an attempt to get to one of Lockhart and Gardner’s drug kingpin clients.

This week Kalinda’s in the middle of running interference for crisis manager extraordinaire Eli Gold when the phone rings. It’s Dana, and Kalinda recognizes the number -- or she’s given Dana her own ringtone -- and answers teasing, “Having a hard time staying away from me?”

“You are just irresistible Kalinda,” Dana playfully responds. She explains that she’s calling to set up a meeting with Diane Lockhart (Christine Baranski) but that the investigation into Will’s past appears to be winding down.

“You’ll tell me when the investigation heats up again?” Kalinda whispers into the phone.

“Oh, you will be my first call,” Dana replies with innuendo.

As Dana hangs up with Kalinda, Cary walks in teasing her about her newfound friend, the mysterious Kalinda. Let’s not forget that Cary, who ended the last episode kissing Kalinda, is not immune to Ms. Sharma’s charms.

Dana tells Cary that Kalinda asked for a call when things heat up with Will’s investigation, to which he suggests she give Kalinda a call immediately It turns out that Peter has hired his former opponent Wendy Scott Carr (Anika Noni Rose) to investigate Will.

Several scenes later cut to Dana and Kalinda pounding a tequila shot, and Dana’s taken her suit jacket off, so you know that tequila shooting with Kalinda gets a girl heated up.

“It’s not going to work,” Dana says, prompting Kalinda to ask what won’t work. “Seducing me,” Dana replies.

“I’m not trying to seduce you,” Kalinda says, playing hard to get and throwing Dana off her game a little. “Too easy…” Kalinda adds.

“What is the point anyway, without a penis involved?” Dana slurs. Clearly, she has not enrolled in the Kalinda Sharma school of how to drink a girl under the table.

“It’s like baseball without a bat,” Dana says.

“Well, you get it when you get it,” Kalinda says slyly. “It’s different. A woman’s lips… And when you get a woman excited It’s not like a man. It’s not aggressive, it’s slow, suspenseful,” Kalinda says… pretty much getting lesbians on couches nationwide into a lather.

Dana then asks Kalinda if she wants to hurt Cary but Kalinda refuses to play ball with that bat and answers with a flat, “no."

“It’s okay, he wants to hurt you too,” Dana says, before spilling to Kalinda about Wendy Scott Carr’s investigation into Will. Kalinda asks what they’ve got on Will, and Dana replies, “Bribery, banging judges.” Let’s hear it for the ole drunken Freudian slip!

“Did I say banging?” Dana asks.

“You did,” Kalinda replies, looking like the cat with the canary, or the cat with the smokin’ hot, drunk ASA...

Dana realizes she’s toasted and that it may be time to make an exit. They squabble over who’ll pay the bill for a moment, but not one to owe anyone, Kalinda ensures that she’s got it as she catches a slightly stumbling Dana in nook of her arm.

Cut to a tracking shot of heels and hose lining a hallway and the sound of moaning. Also cut to lesbians on couches nationwide screaming “Fuck YES!"

But alas, The Good Wife likes to tease, and the camera eventually reveals Dana in bed with Cary. And while Dana may be between the sheets with Cary and presumably post-orgasmic, she’s still got Kalinda on the brain.

“I asked her what it was like to make love to a woman,” Dana tells Cary. “Want to know what she said? She said when women get excited you can feel it."

“She wanted to touch you,” Cary replies, seductively. And then Dana says something that I can not figure out for the life of me!

Essentially, Dana and Cary are sleeping with Kalinda via each other. Here’s a some advice to Dana. Cary’s smart, and cute and ambitious, but really, skip the middle man and go straight to the source Dana!

And that’s about that for Kalinda and Dana for this week but considering the curiosity factor it looks as though that won’t be the end of the flirtation.

Fingers crossed for more intimate Kalinda and Dana interaction down the line, but for now, here’s a video of the lovely and talented Monica Raymund singing the revelatory tune “I Like Girls” from the musical Volley Girls!
