In the episode, we’ll meet Brick’s new teacher, an intimidating force to be reckoned with, played by the 79-year-old Emmy winner. Not only that, but the character will have some, shall we say—stop me if this sounds familiar—”strong” opinions about Frankie’s (Heaton) parenting methods.

So what do you think? Psyched for another Marie/Debra dustup? Tell me all about it below.
