Penny and Desmond still cannot get it together! 

Lost's Sonya Walger has been cast in a "potentially recurring" role on Scandal, just two seasons after her soul mate, Desmond (er, Henry Ian Cusick), left the very same show at the end of season one, E! News has confirmed.

Of course, we know absolutely nothing about her top-secret role, but maybe there will be a boat involved, in order to help us TV journalists with our love of Lost references. 

Walger will simultaneously continue to appear on Parenthood, whether you want her to or not, as Joel's coworker, Meredith. (Sorry, Julia!) 

Walger isn't the only awesome TV star heading to fictional Washington D.C. for Season 4 of Scandal.

It was previously announced that Mary McCormack (In Plain Sight) and Josh Randall (Ed, Scrubs) will appear in an episode as a couple, and that Portia De Rossi (Arrested Development) is joining the show in a "top secret arc," which we could not be more excited about.

TVLine first reported the news of Walger's casting.

Scandal returns on Thursday, September 25 at 9 p.m. on ABC.
