Fearing she will lose her son's affections as she has her career, Viola decides to break up the happy couple by becoming the world's worst mother-in-law. Helping her with her crazy schemes is Viola's long-time assistant, Ruby. The gloves come off when Charlie finally decides to fight back, and it looks like Viola has finally met her match.
