St. Vincent on “Severed Crossed Fingers”
Hold up, Margulies WANTED that relationship over? Why??? I mean, I loved that twist and I thought it was clever, but I never wanted that relationship to shatter?There are numerous statements from Margulies stating that she finds it “unrealistic” that Alicia would ever be friends again with Kalinda. She also called Kalinda “the slut who fucked my husband.” She’s on record as having demanded (and gotten) the pace of the reconciliation between Alicia and Kalinda in Season 3 be slowed. And at the end of Season 4 (after 8 episodes of no scenes between them) she declared the friendship dead and said there was nothing further to explore. And they’ve never been in a scene since…
"Dyson, she trusts him so much and he’s just this really grounded being that she can go to, and they just have a deep affection for each other and a mutual respect, I think.
"And with Lauren, there’s just so much heat between them; there’s so much passion between them. But Lauren’s got a lot of explaining to do. The end of season there was pretty dramatic. But there being such a chemistry, that doesn’t really get shaken. Everything around it gets shaken so they have to constantly repair that, but they don’t ever have to repair the chemistry."
