Following yesterday's news item from Michael Ausiello that he will be interviewing Lucy at Comic Con:

Speaking of which, rumor has it LL is bringing a friend with her to the EW video suite. (Hint: The friend in question was a major topic of conversation during our inaugural chat at last year's Con.)

It seems that "special guest" maybe Lucy's much talked about and never seen (yeay!) merkin. Michael tweeted the following just now. Poor Michael. He has such a tough job.

Michael Ausiello (MichaelAusiello):
In advance of our chat in AM, SPARTACUS' Lucy Lawless is texting me pics of herself modeling merkins. This interview could get hairy. #SDCC
