On Tuesday, fans of "The Conners" enjoyed as Marvel's "Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D" Clark Gregg and 1987's "Dirty Dancing" star Jennifer Grey graced the screen on ABC.

Jackie's bizarre situation

According to ABC's press site, the episode is titled "Bad Dads and Grads." In an Instagram preview, we see as Jackie gets spoiled by the couple with an enviable spa day. 

A humbled Jackie later feels obligated to pay the couple back with money — but that's not what they want. Instead, they'd prefer if she'd consider joining them as a third in the relationship.

The episode also covered as Darlene Conner (Sarah Gilbert) announced to her kids that she and boyfriend Ben would be attempting to have another baby. They don't receive the news very well.
