After years of trying to poach her, Alicia/Canning will finally team up.

The conversation with Peter/Alicia and moments with Finn were great. But the bar scene won't quell those rumors that Ms. Margulies and Ms. Panjabi didn't get along behind the scenes. I would have been fine with the way Kalinda first exited two episodes ago, being the hero solving the 'case-of-the-week' and that simple goodbye to the camera. Instead, Kalinda's absolute last scene putting on her shades striding out to that cheesy music was terrible - a contrast from the classic 'badass' PI we saw in Season 2.


Season Grade: B+...That election storyline was anticlimactic.

That bar scene was shot separately wasn't it? The actresses were no in the same scene at all. Looked very fake.

I did like that they gave her more of a send off, and I liked how everyone stood up to Lester.

I hate that canning is going to partner with her.

Regardless of if they were shot separately, I have a hard time believing that two professional actors would hate each other enough so as to not be able to shoot a simple scene together. That's some immature, childish bullshit right there.

What is the deal with Margulies and Panjabi? I haven't been able to find anything that would explain any dispute or falling out.

There is talk that once Margulies got the exec producer role they stopped talking.

Thanks, bdb. Seems like a lot of speculation and very little factual support. Maybe we'll find out in a few years, after the show is over.

I agree Kalinda's final send off was super cheesy and pretty unnecessary. They did need a bit more resolution to that whole Bishop storyline though so I understand why they did it. Even the scenes with Lester were pretty bad. He was always kind of a menacing character with his friendly demeanor, but here he just came across as a joke, easily blackmailed by Kalinda and then tries to partner with her? That's just not how I understood his character to act in previous episodes. The whole thing could have been handled better over the last few eps.

I liked the case this episode, and they did a pretty good job with the Homen Square story. I'm pissed Finn and Alicia won't be working together though because I like Finn's character and their chemistry. Canning has potential but I find he works best in small doses, so I'm not keen on him becoming a regular. I don't think Alicia will be down with helping him dismantle her friends' firm either.

Overall, a pretty weak season that didn't really go anywhere. The SA race was a waste of time from the start.

They did that because they're not sure if they can get Matthew Goode for enough episodes next season to make him a regular.

making threats against the family of a chicago politician turned governor is asking for trouble even for a powerful drug dealer like Bishop
wonder if he knew Lester was doing that

Peter could easily find someone to shank bishop in the shower
