Veronica Hastings is back, and she is back with a vengeance. This from Lesley Fera, the actress behind the role. What did she tell Twitter about Veronica’s ferocious return?

“Yes,  this week, next week, and the week after that....lots of "Mama Bear" Hastings! :) RT @shaymitchnyc: @LesleyFera will she be back soon?” tweeted Lesley on Saturday.

Veronica will be back in tomorrow’s episode (Season 4, Episode 8: “The Guilty Girl’s Handbook”), and apparently for Season 4, Episode 9: “Into the Deep” and Season 4, Episode 10: “The Mirror Has Three Faces.” As for her role in those eps, we assume it initially has more to do with the “Ashley Marin in jail for Wilden’s murder” storyline than anything else - especially given this sneak peek for tomorrow’s episode that shows Veronica breaking bad news to Hanna, Aria, and Spence.

But the “Mama Bear” descriptor has us wondering if Veronica’s role in Season 4 will expand past Ashley’s lawyer and bearer of bad news to something more. We love the dynamic between Spencer and her mom. It’s so wrought with tension and unsaid things. We hope they get a chance to explore how it’s changed (and not changed) since Spence’s stint in Radley last season. With three consecutive episodes of “Mama Bear” Hastings, we think it could happen!

Are you glad Veronica is back for three episodes in a row? What do you want to see her character doing? Sound off in the comments below!

Catch the episode on Tuesday, July 30, 2013 at 8 p.m. ET/PT on ABC Family.
