It’s 50 Shades Of Scandal For Lena Dunham’s Guest Spot

Lena Dunham makes her glorious debut on next week’s Scandal. ABC shared the first bit of footage of the Girls actress‘ guest appearance in a promo aired last night.

Officially the episode is titled, “It’s Good To Be Kink,” but the promo dubs it as 50 Shades of Scandal. Clearly, someone is riding Christian Grey’s coattails 🙂

Just like Dunham in real life, her character, Kinky Sue, is a hardcore Olivia Pope stan. The two go toe-to-toe over a tell-all book Kinky Sue wrote, revealing the sex secrets of some of Washington’s most elite and powerful.

Based on the footage, things go the lighthearted route next week. I mean, it has to. Not only is some comic relief needed after some pretty intense episodes, but mostly because I just can’t take Lena Dunham seriously. The second she uttered her first line, I immediately thought it was a sequel to her SNL skit. Check out the promo below and see if you think so too.
