Lena Dunham Will Guest Star on Scandal

Originally posted 02/20/2015 04:00PM

From Brooklyn to the Beltway, Lena Dunham is headed to Scandal!

PEOPLE has confirmed that the Girls creator and star, 28, will make an appearance on the Washington, D.C., drama this March, as first reported by EW.com.

Details are scant, but some connection with Olivia Pope & Associates is likely for Dunham's character – not entirely surprising since everyone from Washington, D.C., to Zanzibar has a connection to the cabal of fixers.

Scandal Recap: Which Character Returned to Rescue Olivia Pope?

Washington's best white hat wearer finally got a white knight to save her – but who?

Fitz (Tony Goldwyn)? Jake (Scott Foley)? Her gladiators: Huck (Guillermo Díaz), Abby (Darby Stanchfield) and Quinn (Katie Lowes)? A returned Papa Pope (Joe Morton)? Or even a resurrected Harrison (Columbus Short)?

Nope. In an unexpected but truly lovely twist, Olivia Pope (Kerry Washington) was rescued by Stephen (Henry Ian Cusick), who departed Scandal after season 1, apparently falling in with some resourceful Russian mobsters.

Each week, Shonda Rhimes offers up three solid hours of Anatomy, Scandal and Murder – a new block of must-see TV. If you're not SPOILER-averse, check out Shondaland's hot-button moments below, which we've ranked from least to most shocking.

5. Grey's Anatomy: An M.D. with a Pretty Loose Definition of the Word "Emergency"
In "All I Could Do Was Cry," Meredith (Ellen Pompeo) spent the entire episode running around trying to find a doctor to replace her and a babysitter for the weekend so that she could fly to Washington, D.C., and have "emergency sex" with Derek (Patrick Dempsey). We get it, he's (Mc)Dreamy, and you've had a rough patch in your marriage, but this is a series that depicts serious love and loss (keep reading). As self-involved as Mer has been over the years, this was a low.

4. How to Get Away with Murder: "Incest Is Best ...?"
It's been obvious since her first appearance that Hannah Keating (Marcia Gay Harden) was an about-to-boil-over pot of resentment and repression, but when police came knocking in "She's a Murderer" to tell her sister-in-law Annalise that the man they shared (Annalise's husband, Hannah's brother) was confirmed dead, things got ugly. Hannah cried "Murder!" and Annalise accused Hannah of loving her brother a little too much.

And you think eBay is stressful.

Thursday night's episode of Scandal saw the nail-biting – and blood-splattering, but we'll get to that later – online bidding war over Olivia Pope (Kerry Washington).

Basically every terrorist ever wanted a piece of Pope, who's now publicly proven to be President Fitz's (Tony Goldwyn) weakness – and thus, the United States of America's.

How Does Scott Foley Break Tension on the Scandal Set?

Originally posted 02/06/2015 12:50PM

Scott Foley's character Jake Ballard may be all business, but the actor likes to play around when things get tense on the set of Scandal.

"I make a noise," Foley told Jimmy Kimmel on Thursday. "It's a flatulence noise."

Lest you think the 42-year-old would be above such boyish antics, he bragged, "It sounds pretty good. ... You can take different intonations, you can drop it." Oh, and did we mention that he was demonstrating the noise throughout the conversation?

5. How to Get Away with Murder: Scratch That
Oh, how far Wes (Alfred Enoch) has come from that bumbling first day of law school. Two shots in "Best Christmas Ever" zeroed in on the deep, handmade grooves in the wall above his bed and implied there might be more to those notches than we previously thought. As the Keating Five slowly lost their minds under the stress of keeping the huge secret of Sam's (Tom Verica) murder, Wes was clearly impacted most of all. Now that Sam's body has been found, how much deeper into madness can our beloved naïf plunge?

4. Scandal: Nichols & Dimed Out
Surprise! "Where's the Black Lady" revealed that Vice President Andrew Nichols (Jon Tenney) – whose relationship with Mellie (Bellamy Young) we used to ship so hard – is the evil genius behind Olivia's kidnapping. His plan? Hold Liv (Kerry Washington) in indefinite captivity, exploiting the desperate love of POTUS Fitz (Tony Goldwyn) and push the president toward a super Conservative political agenda. When Liv realized that Fitz declaring war still wouldn't be enough for Andrew to let her go, she manipulated Ian (Jason Butler Harner) into selling her to the "highest bidder" instead. Touché, Ms. Pope.

Think the vice president has no real power? Not in Shondaland.

On Thursday's episode of Scandal, VP Andrew Nichols (Jon Tenney) was revealed to be the evil mastermind behind Olivia's (Kerry Washington) kidnapping, and he quietly took over the White House in a coup that reduced President Fitz (Tony Goldwyn) to his puppet.

Most Scandalous Moments

• Well, that was fast! Just one episode after Liv was snatched, Andrew came forward as her kidnapper, demanding that Fitz declare war on West Angola – or else, Liv would die in 48 hours. Naturally, this was why he and Elizabeth (Portia de Rossi) had her followed this whole season: to advance the Republican agenda. Stay classy.
