Wednesday’s Mysteries of Laura (NBC, 8/7c) finds Debra Messing’s titular detective confronting her former captain (Veronica Mars‘ Enrico Colantoni) for the first time since, you know, he tried to kill her in the pilot.
In need of Hauser’s assistance on an old case, Laura arranges a visit in TVLine’s exclusive preview clip — a visit which turns out to be both brief and appropriately hostile.
“So how are the little guys doing?” he asks. “I wanted to send them something for their birthday.”
But Laura isn’t exactly in the mood to chat, telling him, “You lost the right to a friendly conversation with me when you stuck a gun in my face and pulled the trigger.”
