"Brothers & Sisters" Spoilers: Drama To Get Even More Kennedy-esque
The prestigious Walker family on ABC's hit Sunday night drama "Brothers & Sisters" has tapped into the world of politics from the get-go, but it was only in November when Rob Lowe (formerly of "The West Wing") joined the series, that the saga got a strong "royal political clan" feel to it.
Lowe, who was brought on as a romantic interest for the conservative TV pundit Kitty (played by Ally McBeal vet Calista Flockhart), has clicked with viewers and the network extended his 6-episode guest starring stint into a permanent "special guest star" position.
Recently, Flockhart's character went on to join Senator McAllister's (Lowe) staff supporting his ambitious political aspirations that may down the road lead to presidency. The drama would explore Kitty being a part of that larger-than-life experience and the effect it would have on her family.
According to rumor mill, in an upcoming episode entitled "All in the Family" Kitty meets the Senator's children, daughter Sofia (age 10) and son Jack (age 8).
According to Isabel of Buddy TV Live Spoilerfix Chat, McAllister will hesitantly tell his daughter about his relationship with Kitty.
Sofia, however, resents Kitty and her awkward bonding techniques during a dinner at a restaurant that turns into a disaster.
When a waitress mistakes Kitty for Sofia's mother, the livid child knocks a drink into Kitty's lap.
Finally, it was revealed the first time we see McAllister's son Jack, he will be playing under his father's desk much like late JFK Jr. did in the vintage black and white photo above.
The show which is, according to a recent article in Variety, a hit with affluent audiences in the US, returns March 4 at 9pm with the episode "The Other Walker" dealing with the impact of Emily Van Camp's Rebecca's arrival.
Meanwhile, all die-hard fans of the drama may now win signed script and glossy photo by the entire cast of "Brothers & Sisters" as part of a CharityFolks.com auction. The current bid is set at $275 and the offer expires on March 13 at 6:00 PM PST.
