NBC is giving the producers of the show two additional opportunities for more air time during the next couple of weeks.
To see what I'm talking about, check out this video of last week's installment, "The Debate" during which Leslie (Poehler) debates her opponent for City Council, Bobby Newport, played by the empty-headed Paul Rudd.
Here are the plotlines for the next two episodes:
Episode 421 – “Bus Tour” – LESLIE'S LAST STAND -- PAUL RUDD ("KNOCKED UP") GUEST STARS. Leslie (Amy Poehler) goes on a bus tour for the final day of her campaign, and is caught off guard when an important person in Pawnee passes away. Meanwhile, Andy (Chris Pratt) susses out a security threat, and Chris (Rob Lowe) finds an unlikely cure for his depression. Rashida Jones, Nick Offerman, Aziz Ansari, Aubrey Plaza, Adam Scott, Retta, and Jim O'Heir also star.
Episode 422 – “Win, Lose, or Draw” – IT'S ELECTION NIGHT IN PAWNEE -- PAUL RUDD ("KNOCKED UP") AND KATHRYN HAHN ("STEP BROTHERS") GUEST STAR. It's election day in Pawnee, and Leslie (Amy Poehler) and Bobby Newport (Paul Rudd) are separated by a razor-thin margin. While everyone waits with Leslie for the race to be called, they ponder their futures, and their new opportunities. Rashida Jones, Nick Offerman, Aziz Ansari, Chris Pratt, Aubrey Plaza, Jim O'Heir and Retta also star.
