‘Greek’s’ got Garofalo this week, plus new love for Ashleigh & Rusty…
Source: Zap2It’s Korbi TV
Alright, so, after tonight we’ll be three episodes into “Greek“‘s current season and I’ve been getting some questions about what’s coming up, thought I’d answer a few…
Oh, and Janeane Garofalo‘s guest appearance is this evening.
You mentioned just a few posts ago that Ashleigh would be be finding romance, could it possibly be with Beaver? I was just catching up on Monday’s episode and noticed that in the previews the gentleman Ashleigh was kissing looked very much like Beaver. I think he is a funny character, so why not? Any scoop on that?
Ha! Beaver. Interesting. Actually, Beaver might be getting a little action this evening. But not with Ashleigh. I believe there’s a girl who’s super into his fashion choice for tonight’s KT party and there could be a connection there… Ashleigh will be otherwise occupied with a new member of the ZBZ family. No, she’s not the girl who may be going gay (that’s Rebecca, by the way, keep it hush hush). The sorority is hiring a hasher by the name of Fisher to do kitchen duty type things in the house and he’s, uh, super hot. The ZBZ ladies will lose their minds over him and so Ashleigh, being the responsible president that she is, gets creative in protecting him from them. And he seems to be quite appreciative of her efforts.
Are we meeting Rusty’s love interest this week?
We are. But we’ll also be watching her make out with Jesse McCartney this week, so… yeah. She’s cool though. You’ll like her anyway. She’s introduced in an art history class that Rusty, Dale and Calvin take together and she and Rusty will become friends quickly… ZBZ is looking for extra pledges and Rusty sort of facilitates her bid. She’s new to the school and doesn’t really know anyone, so it works out.
When will Max and Casey break up? When will Casey and Cappie get back together?
You’re going to have to wait a bit longer… Max is going to take a leave of absence from CRU later this season, leaving Casey and Cappie to get reacquainted, but as of right now, Max and Case are still good. Actually, it’s Max and Cappie that are having problems. There will be a confrontation between the two of them this evening. The word “douche” will be involved. You’ll like it.
What is going on with Evan on “Greek” this year? I haven’t heard much.
Evan is lost. He needs help actually. You’ll see tonight. There’s an interesting reveal coming…
“Greek” is awesome! So glad it’s back. Can you tell me which house Jesse McCartney’s character is going to choose?

Jesse McCartney will only be hanging out on Greek for six episodes, but that’s just enough time for him to choose a frat. Jesse teases, “Calvin is trying to get me to join the Omega Chi fraternity. Then there is Rusty, who is trying to get me to join Kappa Tau. It’s definitely safe to say it’s between those two. He goes where you probably don’t expect him to go.” (Watch With Kristin)

Episode 2.13: Engendered Species Airdate: April 13, 2009
- “Greek” is taking us into the classroom at Cyprus Roades this semester and it is there that we’ll find Ms. Garofalo. Playing a Women Studies professor, she crosses paths with Casey, who may be looking to develop more of a feminist perspective… and Cappie, who is definitely just looking to develop more female relationships. “It’s his intention of course to go in and study the women as opposed to partaking of Women Studies,” Sean Smith laughed. “[Janeane] is just hysterical and she calls him out the second she sees him. Something to the effect of, every semester there’s some guy who comes into this class and he fails academically and otherwise. Good luck!” Source: Zap2It’s Korbi TV
- When Casey discovers that Cappie is taking the same women’s studies class — taught by Professor Freeman (Janeane Garofalo) — she knows that it will complicate her relationship with Max. As a result, Casey decides to enlist the help of her new professor to help Max and Cappie get along. Will her plan work? Meanwhile, Rusty starts his first elective class in Art History, and as a lucky bonus meets a pretty new transfer student, Jordan (Johanna Braddy). Although he’s nervous about talking to her, he finds the courage to invite her to a KT party. But the night of the party he learns that some guys have all the luck, namely the new KT pledge, Andy. At the ZBZ house, Ashleigh hires a new hasher, Fisher, who draws a lot of attention from the sisters of ZBZ — but Fisher only has eyes for Ashleigh. Source: ABC Family

- Fisher: 18-21, male, this hunky, drop dead gorgeous college student who resembles a scruffy, young Brad Pitt, is the new hasher at ZBZ. He gets all the girls hot and bothered, but he’s anxious to stay removed from everyone because he’s been fired from past jobs for engaging in inappropriate relationships. He needs to make money so he can put himself through school, so he doesn’t want any trouble at ZBZ. However, his and one of our Zeta Beta Zeta girl’s attraction for one another won’t be denied. Professor Janet Freeman: Mid 30s to mid 40s, this cool, snappy, intelligent and put-together professor (think Tina Fey) teaches Women in Politics and earns Casey’s admiration. Professor Freeman warns Cappie that each year there is a token male in the course who fails, both academically and with the female students. She also gives Casey advice on her conflict resolution dilemma. Professor Summerfield: MALE. In his 60s, rumpled, this art history professor teaches Perspectives on the High Renaissance to Rusty, Calvin and Dale’s class. He’s a bit stuffy and hates the internet, but most of the art slides he shows have a sexual element to them that make the class snicker. Jordan: ALE, 18-20. This naturally beautiful, sweet, sexy, and funny “guy’s girl” wears vintage sneakers to class but cleans up really nicely. She catches Rusty’s eye in Art History. They get along famously, and she appreciates his help when she arrives late to class. She becomes a perfect snap pledge for ZBZ, and seemingly the perfect girl for Rusty, too. Recurring guest cast.

- When Evan’s brother Patrick (Robert Hoffman) shows up at CRU this season, he puts Ev in a position where he really needs someone to talk to. Of course, longtime fans know that he and Cappie have a history, so Cap kind of understands what Evan is dealing with better than any of the other kids do. “I think there’s a thaw between them,” Sean said. “You know, I love their rapport and the cattiness of it. I don’t want to see them become like best buds, because then it’d just be boring. But there’s less contentiousness between them. It’s not quite as antagonistic as it was before.” Source: Zap2It’s Korbi TV

Meanwhile, when Evan’s real-life brother, Patrick (Robert Hoffman), comes for a visit, their celebration at Dobler’s is interrupted by Cappie and the three end up reminiscing about their old camp days. But later Patrick shocks and disappoints Evan by asking for money. Frustrated by his brother’s actions, Evan takes it out on Frannie.

But when they dig a little further, Ashleigh reveals the delicious truth. Source: ABC Family
- Patrick: 25-30, a free spirit who’s been bumming around in Costa Rica, he shows up without any advance warning and takes Evan (Jake McDorman) out for drinks and a talk.

Determined to change her mind, Casey and Ashleigh attempt to give Jordan a ZBZ makeover. Meanwhile, Rusty struggles with the fact that Dale is so in love with their new apartment that he never leaves, so Rusty enlists the Kappa Tau’s to invade the house to scare him away.

- Greek‘s stereotype-shattering gay brother, Calvin, is going to literally have his hands full this semester. Gregory Michael is joining the ABC Family hit as a love interest for Calvin, sources confirm. Michael’s character is described as a genetically-blessed, closeted Omega Chi active who comes out to Calvin — which is all well and good until the two end up rooming together.

Although a rep for the ABC Family hit declined comment, my Greek mole tells me that Dupont will not be returning as a series regular for the show’s just-announced third seaso. The decision, per the source, was primarily a creative one, although budget considerations were a factor as well. [...] I’m told producers hope to bring Dupont back as an occasional guest star.
