I just wrote a post yesterday about Nicole Beharie having a recurring role in CBS The Good Wife, which premieres its new season this Sunday, 25th at 9pm et. Well, The Daily Beast got the scoop from The Good Wife's writer Robert King regarding the upcoming season.

For those of you who watch the show, which I'm tuning in for the first time this Sunday, Beharie will somewhat fill the spot left by the character of Sophia Russo (played by Kelli Giddish). From what I gather, the writers planned to have Sophia, Cary (played by Matt Czuchry) and Kalinda (played by Achie Panjabi) in a love triangle, with the two ladies having a bisexual relationship. However, Sophia (Giddish) will be featured briefly, as she will be shooting for Law & Order. It seems that Nicole's character, Imani Morehouse, will be an attorney at Cary's firm whom he makes some kind of connection with. Here's what writer Robert King says about that:

“We’ll be honest: that was a gut punch,” said Robert King. “She [Sophia] gave a really cool energy to Archie/Kalinda, and we were really excited about this idea of this bisexual love triangle with Cary that was just going to keep popping. The difficulty is when you plan on that, and it goes away, we have emergency sessions … Our emergency sessions are not that rare. It was like, OK, how do we rebuild this?”

“We created a new character, Imani, [for] Nicole Beharie,” he continued. “She’s going to be someone we use at the state’s attorney’s office. It won’t be exactly the same mode, but we didn’t want Matt Czuchry to be kind of off there without someone to connect with. That was supposed to be Kelli Giddish. [Sophia] was a good bridge between a Kalinda that doesn’t want to feel anymore and Cary who feels squeezed out by Kalinda’s new [mode]. You’ll see hints of it in the first episode. It’s nothing we cried about more than a day.”

I wonder, will Nicole's character have a romantic connection with Cary? What will she have any kind of connection to Kalinda as well?

Hmm...I guess we'll find out soon enough!
