Zoo Sneak Peek: Jackson's Mother Is a Real Wild Woman!

Jackson’s mom has got it going on — and by “it,” we mean the triple-helix DNA, as seen in this intense sneak peek from tonight’s Zoo (CBS, 9/8c).

In “Sins of the Father,” Jackson and Abraham (played by James Wolk and Nonso Anozie) track down the missing Elizabeth Oz (Bess Armstong). Suffice it to say, Mom could very much use a visit from Mary Kay and a SuperCuts gift card. Having apparently also been injected with the triple-helix DNA by her husband/Jackson’s father, Elizabeth turned for the worse much quicker than her son.

When feral Mom attacks Abraham, what choice will Jackson make? Press play above to find out. (But be prepared to suddenly want a cage match between Elizabeth, The Strain‘s Kelly and Wayward Pines‘ Margaret.)

Elsewhere as Jackson faces the most difficult decision of his life, Mitch reluctantly enlists help from his father, Max Morgan (Robin Thomas), to investigate the origin of the final set of triple helix animal bones.
