As per usual, specifics regarding Walger’s character are not available, but the “potentially recurring” part suggests she could have a tie to one of the regulars.

In an echo of Desmond and Penny’s star-crossed Lost love story, Walger arrives a little more than two years after Henry Ian Cusick’s Stephen Finch was written out.

Walger, who is also set to recur this fall on NBC’s Parenthood, joins a Season 4 guest cast that also includes Portia de Rossi, Mary McCormack and Josh Randall.

Scandal returns on Thursday, Sept. 25, now hammocked between Grey’s Anatomy and the new Shondaland drama How to Get Away With Murder.

  2. My guess – ties to Mellie. She totally looks like the southern belle type – college lover perhaps.

    Can’t wait to see Penny from LOST on Scandal this upcoming season. Guess she’s pulling double duty not only Scandal but on the final season of Parenthood.

    Kick me later for being one of those comment nit pickers but is Meredith coming back for the last season of Parenthood? I know Sonya was on there last season, but I didn’t think she was coming back.
