Scorpion Casts Switched at Birth Star Lea Thompson as Paige's Mother

There’s no time like Thanksgiving for a complicated family reunion.

Switched at Birth‘s Lea Thompson has landed a potentially recurring role on CBS’ Scorpion as Paige’s con artist mother, EW.com reports.

Veronica Dineen comes back into her disapproving daughter’s life during an upcoming Thanksgiving-themed installment after years behind bars. With some dangerous colleagues on her tail after her discovery of a forgotten nuclear reactor, Veronica brings the team a surprising case. She’s also eager to reconnect with Paige and the grandson she’s never met, but has some secrets of her own that she’d like to keep hidden.

Thompson — who is best known for the Back to the Future movies — will appear in at least two November episodes. The actress has already wrapped filming on Switched at Birth‘s final season.
