THIS. Mostly I feel bad for Archie Panjabi who’s always seemed grateful for the role of Kalinda and always played her magnificently. And now she’s reduced to being in the background and getting googly-eyed at Cary.
I’m actually relieved the fourth season is over because now I can concentrate on shows that don’t make me want to break my tv.
Will we ever see Lana again with Kalinda? Will viewers ever find out how Leela became Kalinda Sharma or is the history of Kalinda something never to be addressed again now that Nick is gone? —ROSECATS
Oh boy, would we ever love to see Lana with Kalinda again. We love Jill Flint. We just need to see where everybody lands after pilot season. It’s very sad to see how much we pray for other people’s pilots to fail. It’s not healthy.
We definitely want to keep opening doors on Kalinda’s backstory — it hasn’t at all been killed by Nick. Again, the problem we run into is how boring and tedious informational backstory is without some entertaining construction to give it meaning and drama. But it is our intent to open more doors into Kalinda’s background.
#it’s so ridiculously selfish and self destructive and I love it so much? #she doesn’t choose will she doesn’t choose peter #she chooses alicia #and in the end isn’t this what the show has always been about? #it’s about alicia choosing alicia #time and time again #when she chose will in season three it was about choosing herself #she didn’t want him to meet her kids #she just wanted him to want her #and when she chose peter in season 4 it was about herself again #about choosing the best life for herself and for her kids #and now when faced with a man who will never be right for her #and a man who promises never to lie to her but instead lies to the people #alicia looks both choices in the eye and chooses herself #I FUCKING LOVE THIS SHOW
