Springtime Meadows! Here we come! Right back where we started from? On Monday, February 15 Mischa Barton will be guest starring as Olivia O’Brien on Freeform’s Recovery Road.
Full synopsis and photos below.
When the residents of an upscale rehab facility have to temporarily move into Springtime Meadows, Vern is elated that his favorite actress Olivia O’Brien (guest star Mischa Barton, “The O.C.”) is among them. But Olivia isn’t what Vern expected. Maddie is feeling left out of her high school life and decides her boyfriend Zach’s birthday is the perfect opportunity to reclaim her place. But when the celebration turns into a wild party, Maddie is faced with temptation to slip back into her old ways.
Flashbacks highlight Vern’s addiction and Cynthia’s efforts to help her best friend get clean. The episode, titled “Parties Without Borders,” was written by Holly Sorensen and directed by Joanna Kerns.
