EW has learned that Chris Elliott, Wayne Brady, Frances Conroy, and Bill Fagerbakke will be returning for the Oct. 24 episode, titled “Noretta.” Elliott will reprise his role as Lily’s estranged father, Mickey, while Conroy and Brady will reprise their roles as Barney’s mother and brother (just as I’d hoped!). Most interestingly, Marshall’s deceased father, played by Fagerbakke, is also scheduled to appear in the episode — although it is not immediately clear in what capacity he will return.

This sounds like quite the family affair, readers! Theories/guesses on what brings them all together?
