The Conners is moving past the grief of Roseanne Conner's death during its star-studded episode.
The new episode, titled "Tangled Up in Blue," will feature the introduction of David's girlfriend Blue (Juliette Lewis), who was first mentioned during the Roseanne reboot. The introduction might lead to some tension between Darlene (Sarah Gilbert) and her ex-husband, but she might be meeting her own new beau during the episode.
Take a look at some photos from the next new episode of The Conners, coming Tuesday Oct. 23.
The episode involves Darlene meeting David's (Johnny Galecki) girlfriend Blue during a parent-teacher conference, before she is stunned by news that her children will be spending the weekend with them.
Here we sense the calm before the storm of the shocking news for the single mother. We can see a label with the name Mark (Ames McNamara) in the photo next to the teacher, played by Lindsey Kraft, so we'll have to wait and see what she has to say about Darlene's son.prevnext
Becky and Dan
The episode will also find Becky (Lecy Goranson) taking some part-time work in Dan's (John Goodman) business, though from the looks on their faces we might see them clash more than helping each other.prevnext
Given Darlene and Jackie's (Laurie Metcalf) faces in this picture, we'd guess she's about to storm out of the room in an angsty rage.prevnext
Though not pictured in the released photos, David (Johnny Galecki) is also expected to make an appearance during the episode.prevnext
Darlene seems to be in need of a few drinks after meeting Blue at the school, as she goes to the restaurant where Becky works for a drink.
In that moment, Darlene can be seen meeting Neil (Justin Long) who, as previously reported, will be a possible love interest for her. Could he live up to David and Darlene's former romance?
Hopefully we can see Jackie begin to move on in the next episode, while remaining the hilarious character we love.prevnext
It wouldn't be The Conners without a climactic moment of tension, as the news of Darlene having to say goodbye to her kids for a whole weekend so they can spend time with their father — and his new girlfriend — will likely reach a breaking point during the episode.
Darlene and Blue can be seen here in the middle of an argument, though we hope they can put their differences aside and find some common ground.prevnext
What's DJ Doing?1comments
But it seems as though DJ (Michael Fishman) will be too preoccupied looking at his phone to worry about what is happening with his father and older sister.
