While it is unknown who she will play, the fact she is in a potentially recurring role leads us to believe she will be involved with one of the series regulars. Could she be a woman who will come between Jake and Olivia, perhaps?
“Lost” fans will remember the actress from her role as Penny on the long running series. Coincidentally, Walger is showing up on “Scandal” a little over two years after Henry Ian Cusick’s character was written off the show, somewhat mimicking the strangers passing in the night, star-crossed love story the actors shared on “Lost.”
Walger is also set to recur on NBC’s “Parenthood” in the fall.
“Scandal” returns Thursday Sept. 25 on ABC.
