It's been over 50 episodes—about two and a half seasons—since The Good Wife's Alicia Florrick (Julianna Margulies) and Kalinda Sharma (Archie Panjabi) have (truly) shared a scene together. The characters, which at some point many called the heart of the series, haven't had a scene together since season four. Of course that's somewhat understandable given the history: Alicia found out Kalinda slept with her husband, Peter (Chris Noth), before they were friends during his scandalous first time in the State's Attorney office. That happened in season two.
They started to make amends here and there, but it all kind of came to a halt. Fast-forward through dozens of phone calls and Kalinda skipped town, but before that she left Alicia a note that devastated the character. Rumor has it we'll find out what was in that note. In the penultimate episode, the two characters were depicted together in a flashback—once through old footage, the other was a new scene with the two of them talking to the camera when they were supposed to be talking to the other character. So they weren't actually in the same scene. Yeah. So is there any hope for the two characters to have any kind of resolution before Panjabi leaves the show?
"Here's what I'll say: You won't be disappointed," Margulies told E! News after she received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Does that mean we'll find out what's in the letter? "I'm just saying, you won't be disappointed," she added with a smile.
Margulies was honored with a star and was joined by The Good Wife co-creators Robert King and Michelle King, CBS boss Les Moonves, Michael J. Fox, and her family including husband Keith and son Kieran.
In her speech, Margulies waxed poetic about the permanent nature of the star, and how permanence is not something actors are used to. "It doesn't matter how big a hit your show is or how many awards you've won, you're always wondering, ‘When's my next gig?' I get to do something I love with all my heart and I always think, ‘Oh dear god, when this job is over will there be another one like it? Will I love it as much?' I know how lucky I am to do what I love, I can't imagine doing anything else."
