Krysta Rodriguez is reuniting with her “Smash” co-star Debra Messing for Wednesday’s (Sept. 30) episode of “The Mysteries of Laura,” titled “The Mystery of the Cure to Loneliness.”

In the episode, Rodriguez plays April Watkins, a young woman battling cancer. Zap2it has an exclusive sneak peek at the episode, which features April as a cancer patient whose friend was faking her own cancer — and Laura (Messing) and Jake (Josh Lucas) are now wondering if April is faking too.

Rodriguez herself was diagnosed with breast cancer in the fall of 2014, going public about her diagnosis and starting the blog ChemoCouture, which chronicles her journey during chemotherapy as well as providing beauty and wellness tips she used during her battle with cancer.

In addition to guest-starring on “Mysteries of Laura” and appearing on “Chasing Life” Season 2, Rodriguez is returning to Broadway for “Spring Awakening.” She has appeared in several Broadway productions over the last decade.

“The Mysteries of Laura” airs Wednesdays at 8 p.m. ET/PT on NBC.
