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