Next week on ABC’s Modern Family (Wednesdays at 8/7c), Gloria’s ex, Javier, pays a visit — with his new girlfriend, played by Criminal Minds vet Paget Brewster, in tow. And TVLine has a first look at the not-so-warm welcome that Trish gets.
In this exclusive clip from the episode, Jay asks Trish, an art expert, for her opinion on a piece he acquired from “a gallery in one of the finer Vegas casinos.” Longtime viewers of the ABC comedy who recognize the item in question should also recall what Gloria thought about it back during Season 1. And sure enough, she barks her strong opinion again, while Trish and Javier (returning guest star Benjamin Bratt) argue for the piece’s merits.
Brewster this pilot season booked a role on ABC’s adaptation of the British comedy Spy, playing ex-wife to Rob Corddry’s titular character. At the start of this TV season, she guested on Law & Order: SVU — which also aired opposite Criminal Minds.
