Introverted science prodigy Cleo (Rowan Blanchard) accidentally turns her popular and athletic older sister, Molly (Paris Berelc), invisible. Cleo, accustomed to living in Molly’s shadow, is forced to step outside her comfort zone and into the shoes of her older sister for an important lacrosse game. As the sisters try to convince their friends, teachers and Molly’s lacrosse team that nothing is wrong, they must rely on each other like never before and find an antidote to reverse the effects of Cleo’s experiment before Molly’s invisibility becomes permanent.
Certain candidates in the current presidential race make the episode "Ping-pong" appropriately timed, as Vanessa (Nancy Travis) tries to enhance Eve's (Kaitlyn Dever) awareness of what it would mean to have a woman in the Oval Office. Startled by Ed's (Hector Elizondo) revelation of being long-estranged from his daughter, Mike (Tim Allen) tries to fortify his own connection to Mandy (Molly Ephraim). Amanda Fuller and Jordan Masterson also star.
Last season's finale -- done as a live episode -- was deemed so successful, the sitcom's entire third season also will be staged live (for the Eastern half of the country), starting here. As with the previous effort, it should be pretty much second nature for such cast members as Chris D'Elia and Brent Morin, since they also do stand-up comedy appearances regularly. By her own admission, as a traditional actress, it may be more of an adjustment for co-star Bianca Kajlich.
There's intensified discord among royalty as Season 3 of the drama opens with "Three Queens, Two Tigers." Mary (Adelaide Kane) still reigns over Scotland, but her hold on power is tenuous, since Elizabeth and Catherine (Rachel Skarsten, Megan Follows) are aligned against her. However, Elizabeth's continued attraction to first love Robert Dudley (Charlie Carrick) splits her attention. Toby Regbo, Torrance Coombs and Anna Popplewell also star.
