The Good Wife alum Archie Panjabi brings some frisky business to Brooklyn when she guest stars on the comedy’s October 4 episode. Panjabi plays Lieutenant Thakurta, a Staten Island cop with her eye on Det. Charles Boyle (Joe Lo Truglio). “She has flirted with Charles at the last three police funerals they attended,” says executive producer Dan Goor, who calls the relationship “intense, sensual and passionate.” While Boyle is happy with this newfound attention, his coworkers do not fall under the same spell. “She’s pretty laser-focused on Charles, which worries some of his colleagues,” Goor adds.
