The Girls star is also bringing a spicy attitude to rival Olivia Pope (Kerry Washington).
The episode is titled, “It’s Good to Be Kink,” and it’s good to be Dunham in this episode because we can already tell it’s going to be awesome. She’ll be tackling the role of a woman who wants to expose the sex secrets of some of D.C.’s elite. Are Olivia and Fitz included in this dirt?
In a new clip released on Twitter, Dunham is “wonderfully scandalous.” Olivia tries to lay down the law when Dunham’s character says someone will pay her a ton of money for all the secrets she has. “Do you know what they’re going to call you? What they call somebody who gets paid millions of dollars for what you did?”
“You mean a whore?” Dunham responds, and she’s totally channeling her inner Sarah Michelle Gellar circa Cruel Intentions here. “When did you become so weak?”
The two-minute clip only gets better from there because we’ve been waiting for someone to call Olivia out for not acting like herself since she was kidnapped. Of course it was a harrowing experience, but she needs someone to snap her back into herself just like she did for Cyrus in the “little bitch baby” scene.
Dunham is far from done schooling Pope. “I thought you’d be brave. I thought you’d be adventurous, fearless, sexy, confident, but instead you’re just this dried-up prude who, instead of celebrating the fact that I fully own my body and use it however I want with whomever I want as many times and as many kinky ways as I want, you’re shaking your finger at me?”
Watch the full clip in all its amazing glory below.
