To wit, Army Wives thesp Jeremy Davidson is joining the ABC drama for a multi-episode arc as Kitty’s (Calista Flockhart) first significant love interest since the death of husband Robert (Rob Lowe).

The two will meet in Ojai, which is where Kitty has been holed up during her year of transition.

“He’s very different than Robert,” explains exec producer David Marshall Grant of Davidson’s character, “and a very different guy than the kind of men Kitty’s been with her whole life.”

Davidson—who in real life is married to Mary Stuart Masterson—is slated to debut in late October/early November. B&S kicks off its fifth season on Sept. 26.
