Since it's a show about a pair of recovering alcoholics, "Mom" was bound to do a story where one of its lead characters has a relapse.
That episode comes Monday (Nov. 18), and the character who falls off the wagon, Allison Janney's Bonnie, does so pretty spectacularly.
"We kind of set that up a couple episodes back," Janney tells Zap2it. "My character was the obvious choice for that relapse because I'm one person removed from the kids, so I think that was kind of important that you didn't feel worried about the kids' safety. And Bonnie is the obvious choice because from the pilot episode, you could tell she was not fully committed to her sobriety with taking Xanax. She got a nudge from the judge but is trying to play it fast and loose."
