Lena Dunham’s Wig Guest Stars on Next Week’s Scandal

lena_dunham_scandal

The teaser for next week’s Lena Dunham–starring episode of Scandal is here, and it hints at everything you could possibly expect from such an episode. Lena Dunham playing a woman who boldly flaunts her sexuality? Check. An eye roll-inducing reference to a topical issue (this time, Fifty Shades of Grey)? Check. Lena Dunham in a terrible wig? Double check.

It’s been a while since Scandal has been legitimately silly and quotable, and this preview—with its “beep beeps” and “toot toots” from Donna Summer’s “Bad Girls” bustling in the background—suggests a welcome return to levity in the Olivia Pope world.
