TVLine Items: Happy Endings Rebound Girl Returns, Munsters Delayed, Pilot Scoop and More!

Happy Endings‘ Dave will be haunted by a hottie from his past when his very first rebound girl, after Alex left him at the altar, resurfaces.

TVLine has confirmed that in a springtime episode of the ABC comedy, Mikaela Hoover will return as Jackie, the sexy (and surprisingly young!) brunette Dave hooked up with immediately after his non-wedding. (If it jogs your memory: She misplaced her tongue ring during their romp.)

Sources tell us that when Jackie crosses paths with the gang again, it will evolve into a bit of a confrontation with Captain V-Neck, seeing as their fling didn’t end on the best of terms (meaning: on no terms).

In addition to the big-screen spoof Super, Hoover’s credits include Barney’s baby-talking hook-up on How I Met Your Mother and the web series Sorority Forever.

  • What? She was a blip in the first episode. Why is this news? When we first saw it we all thought it was Snooki! Yawn.

  • What does Autumn Reeser’s new role mean for her role in Hawaii Five-0? I actually really like her and Danny, eventhough she’s only been in 2 episodes.
