The hard-nosed and emotional Mama Miller is introduced when Nick and the gang travel to his hometown of Chicago and discover that their roomie is actually the most responsible and mature member of his clan. (Not hard to believe when you remember his con-man dad, recently played by guest star Dennis Farina.)

Meanwhile, mom is skeptical of her son’s relationship with Jess.

Martindale kicks off her recurring role on FX’s The Americans next week.
