For Millennials. By Millennials.
It’s almost time for The Conners to head out, but before they check out for a seasonal break, there is some unfinished business awaiting action. Two prominent characters, Louise (Katey Sagal) and Beverly (Estelle Parsons) will return to The Conners Season 2 after several weeks of absence. And their appearance will culminate some story-arcs that have been hanging by a thread. The Conners will air its season finale next Tuesday, meanwhile, plans for a season 3 are already on the table. Cast members Sara Gilbert, John Goodman, Laurie Metcalf, and Lecy Goranson have already closed deals for the new season. Now, the makers are awaiting the network to greenlight the production.
Katey Sagal aka Louise Is Back, But The Romance Is Not
The Conners Season 2 is determined to provide closure over the Dan (John Goodman) – Louise plotline before shutting shop. Today’s episode will see Louise returning back from her road trip after a month. Her return will prompt Becky (Lecy Goranson) to confront her dad about his feelings for her. Dan will give in, admitting that his guilt of betraying his dead wife Roseanne (Roseanne Barr) prohibits him from any new romance. Amid all this drama, Dan will also receive a visit from his late wife’s ghost, who will channel in her disapproval for Louise. Mostly, because, “she made it very clear that if she went first she wanted me to be miserable for the rest of my life.” – Dan.
Grandma Bev (Estelle Parsons) Is Back To Nag Jackie (Laurie Metcalf)
Katey Sagal has a commanding presence in today’s episode, but the episode doesn’t necessarily revolve around her. The mother from hell, Beverly (played to perfection by the 92-year-old Estelle Parsons) will return to Landford for a climactic confrontation with Jackie. There is a classic and humorous exchange of nasty barbs between the dysfunctional duo. And audiences will have a good laugh through their banter.
