When Jill Flint appeared on the first season of The Good Wife as FBI agent Lana Delaney, she was attempting to seduce Kalinda (Archie Panjabi) in two ways — sexually and professionally. But Kalinda wasn’t interested, at least not in the job offer. Although she shared some flirting over dinner and a kiss behind a garage door, the relationship didn’t advance, as Kalinda wanted to stay where she was, working at Lockhart & Gardner.
On last night’s episode, “Net Worth,” Kalinda sought out Lana’s help, which turned into another dinner, with some more forwardness from Lana and a brief discussion of Kalinda’s sexuality. (The use of The Kills’ “Black Balloon” was a superb choice for this sexy scene.)
Lana: I’m taking off my shoe. See?
Kalinda: I can see.
Lana: I’m stretching out my foot. Are you alright with that?
Kalinda: Oh you have to stretch, stretch.
Lana runs her stockinged foot up Kalinda’s leg to the edge of her skirt around her thigh.
Lana: I have an offer for you. Come work for me. It’s not good at Lockhart Gardner and it wont’ be good for quite some time.
Kalinda: And why is that?
Lana: Your firm is representing Bishop, the drug dealer.
Kalinda: Yeah he has legitimate interests.
Lana: He has no legitimate interests. [Runs her foot up Kalinda’s dress an inch] The firm is in danger. Come work for me.
Kalinda: We had this conversation. I like where I am. [Lana runs her foot back down to Kalinda’s boot]
Lana: Why do you like men?
Kalinda: Why do I like men?
Lana: Yes, sex with men. Why do you like it?
Kalinda: I don’t distinguish.
Lana: You don’t have a preference?
Lana: You were saying?
Kalinda: I was saying Italian, Mexican, Thai — why does one choose one food over the other?
Lana: Because sex is not food.
Kalinda: Because of love.
Lana: Or intimacy. Don’t you want intimacy?
Lana: [Phone rings] I have to get that.
Kalinda: Then you’re going to need your foot back.
