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.
