The Middle 3.10 "Thanksgiving III" Recap

It's Thanksgiving again and the Hecks managed to survive a dysfunctional gathering with Frankie's family on this week's episode of The Middle.

Molly Shannon made a guest appearance as Frankie's passive aggressive sister, Janet. Her first move was to get to Frankie's parents' house first to claim the guest bedroom. She offers it to Frankie when they arrive, but she thought it was best for everyone because her husband needs to work and her daughter Lucy needs a quiet place to sleep. Like every other year, the Hecks get the air mattresses. Janet's husband, who must be incredibly smart, manages to hide out in the guest bedroom—including during Thanksgiving dinner—until the final scene where he's standing on the porch with his MacBook, waving goodbye. That's one way to handle a family gathering.

Jerry Van Dyke returned to The Middle as Frankie's father, Tag Spence. »
