But then I remembered that it was only the first episode of the sixth season, and you can really judge a show on that, right? I mean they could still come back and blow me away, couldn’t they? This might not necessarily be the reason that Rashida Jones and Rob Lowe have chosen to break my heart by leaving the show permanently?
Well, nervousness be damned, I’m gonna answer all those questions yes, because I just saw a promo for the next episode and it has Kristen Bell in it. Kristen Bell, you guys! She can solve any problem! Remember how well she’s tackling motherhood? She plays Leslie Knope’s newest nemesis, a woman from Eagleton, who — you know what? Why don’t I just let Leslie explain this to you herself:
“That awful human being is Ingrid DeForrest. She’s a City Councillor from Eagleton. She thinks she’s so great because she won the Miss Indiana Beauty Pageant…last year…while she was in office…and pregnant.”
Ugh, Ingrid, shut up. You take your bowl of Swarovski oranges and you get far far away from here. But you, Kristen, you stay. You stay forever and protect me from P&R ever changing or going off the air or getting measurably worse in any way. Thanks!
