It's handled!

Lena Dunham will be the envy of Gladiators around the world when she guest stars on an upcoming episode of Scandal, and now you can see photos of the Girls creator in action with Olivia Pope (Kerry Washington).

In the March 19 episode "It's Good to Be Kink," "Olivia springs into action when she hears of a woman intending to expose sex secrets of some of D.C.’s most elite," ABC reveals.

Dunham posted an Instagram of her bonding time on set with Scandal star Washington that revealed her character is nicknamed "Kinky Sue," so it appears that Dunham is playing the woman with the sexy secrets who butts heads with the Washington D.C. fixer.

Appearing on Scandal is a dream role for Dunham, 28 — she even told Grantland that it was her "life's great passion" to guest star on the show, hopefully as "a really evil character."

The guest spot is not the first time Dunham has invaded the offices of Olivia Pope & Associates (also wearing a questionable wig). When she hosted Saturday Night Live in 2014, she starred in a skit as an incompetent recent college grad who joined the Gladiator team (and drove them crazy with incessant questions).

But that's not even every tie Dunham has to the show — she also hired the real-life inspiration for Olivia Pope, crisis manager Judy Smith, earlier in 2015 after some controversy surrounding her book, Not That Kind of Girl.

Check out Dunham on the March 19 episode of Scandal, airing at 9 p.m. on ABC!
