Snowflakes Cause a Little Tension in Last Man Standing's Christmas Episode

Tree trimming causes some drama!

Malcolm Venable

Last Man Standing's Christmas episode, airing Friday, Dec. 14, has some snowflakes causing some drama -- but not the kind that get under Mike Baxter's (Tim Allen) skin.

No, the snowflake that threatens to steal holiday cheer in the Baxter household is the decorative kind, i.e. an actual tree ornament Mandy (Molly McCook) made back in the day. In this exclusive clip, all is calm and bright as Vanessa (Nancy Travis) starts sprucing up the spruce while enjoying a festive drink, until Mandy and Kyle (Christoph Sanders) show up and cover her joy in a little coal-colored darkness.

The thing is, Mandy's exacting taste and strong opinions makes her literally unable to keep her mouth shut and let her mom decorate the tree how she wants, insisting that Vanessa leave the decor to her. There's no telling how that's going to play out by the time the episode ends, but judging by the look on Vanessa's face, a fight may very well be brewing, and it's probably not going to involve snowballs.

Last Man Standing airs Fridays at 8/7c on Fox.
