George (Jason Priestley) gets an unconventional birthday gift on the Wednesday, February 28 episode of WILD CARDS: A 72-hour pass out of jail.

“George makes an appearance outside of prison, which was super fun,” Priestley tells Give Me My Remote. “Vanessa [Morgan, who plays George’s daughter, Max] and I had a great time shooting that episode. And there’s a lot of comedy.”

Of course, don’t expect George to behave in “Con with the Wind.” “I think it’s very telling that George got out of prison for a few days and the first thing he did was pull a con with his daughter,” Priestley says with a laugh. “I think that sort of speaks volumes about George and who he really is.”

But George won’t only be hanging out with Max: He’ll spend some quality time with Max’s new partner, Ellis (Giacomo Gianniotti), too.

“We get to sort of enjoy having him out of prison and all the fun that that brings,” Gianniotti teases. “And it means a lot to Max, obviously, to have her dad out just for a minute. And I get to connect with him more—you get to see more of George with Ellis being together. We’re working on something.”

While Max is undercover, “I’m more with her father,” he continues. “So we get to have more, like, bonding moments where I learn more about him and his role as a parent to her growing up. I’m kind of investigating and wanting to learn more about him and learn more about her. And he’s also sizing me up and being like, ‘Who’s this guy working with my daughter and what’s his deal?’ So I think there are some cool scenes that are both funny and emotional.”

“The two characters are just sort of feeling each other out because they don’t really know each other,” adds Priestley. “So it’s a lot of just trying to figure out who the other person is. Which is good, which is super fun. Giacomo and I had a ton of fun that day shooting.”

However, since Max and George are up to some mysterious possible scheme—and parents are always their own wild card—how worried is Max about the two men in her life spending quality time together?

“You know, I’m sure there’s an underlying worry of like, ‘What’s my dad gonna say? And what’s Ellis gonna say? Or what kind of questions are gonna be asked of him?’” Morgan admits. “I’m like that with my parents [in real life]…but I feel like Max is a pretty confident character and that she’s assuming things are gonna go well.”

But is she correct? Tune in to find out…
