Raising Hope, Keith Carradine

Michael Becker/FOX

Howdy daddy!

Raising Hope welcomes star Martha Plimpton's real-life father Keith Carradine (Dexter and Damages) in tonight's episode, airing at 9:30 p.m., and we've got your exclusive first look at the father-daughter duo in action. 

But did you know he and Plimpton's co-star Garret Dillahunt also have a surprising connection: they worked together on Deadwood, and Dillahunt's character actually killed Carradine's! Oops!

"My fake husband on this show fake-murdered my real dad," Plimpton jokes in our exclusive sneak peek at tonight's outing, which takes place at a dude ranch, naturally. 

In the episode, Virginia (Plimpton) and Burt (Dillahunt) decide to be cowboys for  day and head to a ranch, where they meet Carradine's character.

"It'll be fun to see him again," Dillahunt says. "I worked with him on Deadwood, in which I shot him in the head."

And though he promises, "That will not be happening on this show," there is definitely some tension between their Raising Hope characters.

"I'm hoping they can get over their past and we can come together as a family," Plimpton says. Cue adorable sing-a-long around the campfire with the entire fam!

Raising Hope airs tonight at 9:30 on Fox.
