However temporary a guest appearance it might have been, 'Parks and Recreation' fans were excited and full of "aww" to see Ron Swanson (Nick Offerman) potentially developing a non-Tammy love interest in Lucy Lawless' Diane. Unfortunately, the terrible wrath of Tammy 2 may rear its ugly head once more! And by ugly head, we mean the lovely Megan Mullally's return!

We thought about making a joke about how 'Parks and Recreation's Amy Poehler stealing Julia Louis-Dreyfus' husband Brad Hall might have been what caused the split between her and Will Arnett, but then we just got sad.  Then we tried to make it into a joke about Julia stealing Amy's Emmy for Outstanding Female Lead, but then we just got sad about her and Will Arnett again.  But anyway, Brad Hall is going to be on 'Parks and Recreation,' or whatever.

So, will she be back for the coming season?

After seeing Leslie Knope successfully elected to Pawnee's City Council last season, ‘Parks and Recreation’ season 5 heads to D.C. with its first episode of the year, as Leslie finds her newfound authority quickly humbled by a trip to visit Ben at his new big-shot job in Washington D.C., while back in Pawnee Ron Swanson attempts to fill in for Leslie in throwing the annual employee appreciation barbecue.  Which?  Why, the "Leslie Knope Employment Enjoyment Summer Slam Grill Jam Fun-Splosion," of course!

Last season’s ‘Parks and Recreation’ finale “Win, Lose or Draw” saw Leslie just barely achieving her longtime dream of being elected to City Council, while Ben took up the offer for a real campaign job in D.C. and Tom and Anne drunkenly agreed to move in with one another,  so how does “Ms. Knope Goes to Washington”  get us started?  What will season 5 of ‘Parks and Recreation’ bring, besides new nemeses, 'Breaking Bad' guest stars and Xena herself?

'Parks and Recreation' season 5 has earned itself some major genre cred over the last couple of weeks, casting both the warrior princess herself, Lucy Lawless, as a love interest for Ron Swanson, and yesterday 'Breaking Bad's' Jonathan Banks, but not every guest spot can be so well known to us geeks. If 'Parks and Recreation' had such enthusiasm in casting Banks for the part of Ben's father, who could possibly fill the role of his mother?
