Wednesday's Black-ish is Season 3's Thanksgiving episode, and it introduces another branch of the Johnson family tree: Pops' (Laurence Fishbourne) older sister Almaviligerais (A.V. for short).

A.V. shows up unexpectedly to Thanksgiving, to the delight of everyone except Ruby (Jenifer Lewis), who for some reason can't stand her ex-sister-in-law. As Dre (Anthony Anderson) and Bow (Tracee Ellis Ross) get away for a little vacation before Bow gives birth, the kids try to figure out why their grandmother has such beef with their great-aunt.


It could be because A.V. is played by Lorraine Toussaint, best known for playing the scary-as-hell gangster Vee on Season 2 of Orange Is the New Black. And if A.V. is anything like Vee, she's not a good family member.

In this exclusive clip, Almaviligerais arrives as Dre is engaging in the joyous pastime of licking the batter off beaters even though you know you might get salmonella.
