Lana Delaney, The Good Wife
Lana Delaney (Jill Flint)
FBI agent Lana Delaney was the on-again off-again lover of main character Kalinda Sharma throughout her six seasons as a recurring character on The Good Wife.
When they first met in Season 1, Lana attempted to seduce Kalinda and convinced her to leave her job for another one. They shared some flirting and a kiss but the relationship didn’t go any further after Kalinda decided to stay with her current job. In Season 2, Lana once again sought out Kalinda and the two shared more flirting and intimacy, but it never turned into anything serious.
In later seasons, Lana became involved in a love triangle when Kalinda had feelings for both her and her co-worker, Carey. They were also all involved in a plot that put Lana and Carey against each other as Carey was working for a drug kingpin that Lana was trying to put behind bars, while Kalinda was stuck in the middle.
In her last episode on the show Lana asked Kalinda to take their relationship more seriously, and Kalinda climbed into bed with her and told her she did take it seriously. At the end of the episode Lana was called into her boss’s office and accused of leaking information concerning the investigation, leaving the episode on a cliffhanger on whether Kalinda had sacrificed Lana for Carey.
Lana was not seen again in the series and Kalinda was then given an abrupt exit from the show at the end of Season 6 when she had to flee the city for her own safety. Leaving Lana and Kalinda’s storyline unresolved.
