In Season 2 of New Girl, we met Jess's parents over a twisted, albeit mostly lax, Thanksgiving dinner. But meeting Jess's older sister Abby in this week's episode felt a little more... criminal, shall we say? Indeed, it was even before the Freaks and Geeks vet Linda Cardellini made her first appearance on screen that we learned her character was the requisite "wild child" of the Day family. It was nice having Jamie Lee Curtis on hand to fill in some of the backstory, as she explained that Jess would have to pick Abby up from jail.
