It’s finally time to meet Paige’s (Katharine McPhee) estranged mother. 

Lea Thompson makes her long awaited debut as Paige’s con artist mom Veronica Dineen in this exclusive clip from Scorpion‘s Thanksgiving episode, which airs Monday night.

In the clip, Veronica summons the team to an abandoned building where she found a long forgotten nuclear reactor. While the team is eager to help with her problem, the same can’t be said of Paige, who isn’t too pleased to see her because Veronica recently spent time behind bars and she isn’t ready to trust her. 

“It’s a volatile relationship,” McPhee told EW in October. “Paige gets irritated by the fact that the team wants to be involved.” 

Watch the very tense mother-daughter reunion above. 

Scorpion airs Mondays at 10 p.m. ET on CBS.
