Last week started my official coverage of all things Scandal season 3. Gawd knows I can’t wait for a slew of ABC shows to return to my television screen this fall. Scandal, Revenge, Once Upon A Time, Modern Family, and The Middle are all ABC shows that I love. Lisa Kudrow has gotten her phone call from Shonda Rhimes and given a roll on season 3. I’m still waiting on Miss Shonda to call me and let me know when to report to work. While the folks over at ShondaLand are trying to figure out my role, we are left at home trying to figure out Lisa Kudrow’s. All we know is that she will be playing a politician. Lips have been sealed on much else regarding Kudrow’ s recurring role. Here are four possible roles Lisa Kudrow could be playing. Catch these T’s
Kudrow could become a new client of Olivia Pope (Kerry Washington) & Associates as they get back to the case-of-the-week format at the beginning of the season. With Kudrow recurring, it could be a particularly difficult cleanup that connects to whatever overall mystery we’ll see this year.
Governor Reston’s running mate:
Governor Reston (Tom Amandes) tried to blackmail Fitz (Tony Goldwyn) into being his running mate in the upcoming presidential election, but Billy’s (Matt Letscher) arrest ruined that. Still, we have a feeling Reston will reemerge during the upcoming election, and maybe this time, he’ll have a female running mate by his side.
Not that we ever saw her family in the hospital, but what if Verna Thornton (Debra Mooney) actually had a daughter in politics with whom she shared the dirty details of Defiance? Sure, the election-rigging scandal has been put to rest, but what if Kudrow’s character used that information to score a comfy job or take down Fitz’s administration once and for all?
When Jake Ballard (Scott Foley) was first introduced, he told Olivia that he had four brothers and two sisters — that’s why he hates the quiet. Kudrow could play one of his sisters, who comes to D.C. after not hearing from her baby bro in a while. He is in that B613 hole, after all. ~ TV Guide, Natalie Abrams
