If you’re looking for answers as to which way Leslie Knope leans in the season premiere of “Parks and Recreation,” you won’t get much help from these pictures. Maybe.
That’s not necessarily a bad thing, mind you. We’re willing to wait and see the episode, titled “I’m Leslie Knope,” to find out whether Leslie (Amy Poehler) stays with Ben (Adam Scott) or breaks up with him to pursue a spot on the Pawnee City Council. Although based on the shot below, we’re feeling a little uneasy about the romance.
Granted, that could easily be Leslie not declaring for office as it could be her announcing a candidacy. Or her trying to thread the needle and both come clean about her relationship with Ben and run for office. Maybe Ben is just out of frame, flanking Leslie on the other side of the podium the way April (Aubrey Plaza) and Andy (Chris Pratt) are on the side we can see.
Hey, we can hope, right?
On a different note, Ron (Nick Offerman) seems to have recovered most of the hair on top of head after being incinerated in last season’s finale. His eyebrows, however, are a different story. The two shots below show you the state of the Swanson facial hair as the season begins.
There may or may not be a Tammy One (Patricia Clarkson) sighting in the premiere, by the way: The episode description only says that “Ron prepares for” her return.
Season 4 of “Parks and Recreation” premieres at 8:30 p.m. ET Thursday, Sept. 22 on NBC.
