Scandal: Dan Bucatinsky, Kate Burton Returning Later This Season

Scandal Season 4 Spoilers

Fresh off Henry Ian Cusick’s shocking return to O.P.A., Scandal is bringing two more fan-favorite characters back into the fold.

Dan Bucatinsky (James “Publius” Novak) and Kate Burton (Sally “Crispy Piggy” Langston) will both be back on the ABC drama later this season, TVLine has confirmed, though details surrounding their returns are being kept under wraps for now.

It is confirmed, however, that James will be seen in flashbacks; rest assured, he is dead, and Scandal isn’t planning to pull a Weekend at Bernie’s anytime soon.

As for Sally, might the former Vice President of the United States be looking to reclaim her throne, following Andrew’s unfortunate “stroke”?

Bucatinsky and Burton’s returns were first reported by E! Online.

    Can’t wait for Cyrus’ wedding to the hooker, is it still happening?

      I think the wedding happened, but it wasn’t shown because no one was happy about it. It was just a form of damage control. Anyway, Cyrus already mentioned it.

      • Ali says:

        Actually the wedding hasn’t happened yet. If you remember in episode 4.09 (Where the sun don’t shine) Cyrus mentions to the press, that they were still undecided on a date. One of the upcoming episodes (4.17) is titled ‘Put a ring on it” I’m guessing the wedding will take place during that episode, along with him remembering James via flashbacks.
