The Conner family is no stranger to financial hardships. One could even argue it's the central appeal of the lower-middle-class family that's captivated viewers since Roseanne debuted back in 1988. Things haven't changed much over the years, as Tuesday night's episode of The Conners pointed out.
The episode, "CPAPS, Hickeys and Biscuits," found Dan (John Goodman) moving on romantically after a few heartbreaking setbacks. Although, just as he was growing comfortable in his new relationship with Louise (Katey Sagal), he came home to find a letter from the bank informing them they were foreclosing on the Conners' house. All considering, Dan didn't seem all that shocked, citing the second mortgage he had to take out thanks to a flood of medical bills, and his business is once again struggling to stay out of the red. Still, it sparked a look in his eye, implying that he was in no way ready to give up his home without a fight.
The scene popped up just before the show's last commercial break, and the episode itself ended with a charming back-and-forth between Ben (Jay R. Ferguson) and Mark (Ames McNamara) after a sleepover gone wrong. It's unclear how Dan plans to move forward, and given that the Season 2 finale airs on May 5, viewers were left on the edge of their seat.
Foreclosure on the house! Oh no! Of course, no awwing from the audience! Not that I heard, anyway. #theconners— Brooke Parker (@gramfurn) April 29, 2020

Wait... What if they move #TheConners to a new home? I can't see this show set in another home. But at the same time... Let the past die.— Gwimo (@EnnuiPrayer) April 29, 2020
Damn how many times have they almost lost this house? I love how realistic this show is. #theconners— Whitneyfan39 (@Whitneyfan90) April 29, 2020
How, after 35+ years in this house, do they not own it outright? And do he need to take a SECOND mortgage on this house? #theconners— purplegaiter (@purplegaiter) April 29, 2020
