Marsha Mason by Jim Spellman/ Marsha Mason by Jim Spellman/

Kim Delaney's Army Wife is getting a visit from Mom - and neither lady will be welcomed with "Happy to See Me."

For a pair of episodes of the hit Lifetime drama, four-time Oscar nominee Marsha Mason has been enlisted to fill the plum role of Charlotte Meade, Claudia Joy's upper-crust and always-distant mother who shows up in South Carolina expectedly - and harboring a somewhat urgent, unsaid agenda. (Um, anyone else here take Reading Between the Lines 101? I audited the class myself.)

Mason's episodes will air in mid-August. - Matt Mitovich
