From her initial moments in Mistresses‘ Season 4 premiere, Tia Mowry-Hardrict‘s literary agent Barbara Rutledge asks the kinds of questions that will resonate with fans of ABC’s nutrageous summer sudser.
“Was that guy really wearing a caftan and a wig?” Mowry-Hardric’s character asks Jes Macallan’s Joss about her dangerous encounter with Calista’s deranged, gun-toting assistant Wilson (aka The Cliffhanger Incident From the Season 3 Finale That Joss Obviously Survived).
As you’ll see from our exclusive clip, however, Barbara’s harried demeanor and Joss’ clear agenda might get in the way of an instant friendship connection. Before you know it, Barbara’s making a hasty exit and declaring, “Oh, I get it. You’re mentally ill from the trial!”
No, Barbara, no! Stick around! Joss is the good kind of crazy! And we promise, the book in her hand is going to be juicier than a ripe papaya!
Mistresses returns Monday at 10/9c.
