‘The Conners’: Dan Faces Big Change in Married Life When Show Returns

by Jonathan Howard

Alright, The Conners are taking a small break. Thanksgiving usually gives us at least a one-week hiatus on new episodes and this year is no different. So, fans have to wait while they look forward to the Season 4 Episode 8 premiere.

The return for The Conners is going to be returning on Wednesday, December 1. Mark your calendars because this is going to be a bit emotional it seems. Dan, still reconciling with the passing of Roseanne, is making a big step in moving on from that part of his life. With a house full of memories and keepsakes from his past life with Roseanne, there is just one thing that can fix this problem. A good old-fashioned yard sale.

Read the synopsis for the episode below.

Yard Sale, Phone Fail, And a College Betrayal: “As Louise starts to move into the Conner’s home, Dan decides to sell the furniture set he bought for Roseanne when they were first married. However, he soon finds parting with the furniture – and old memories – harder than he thought it would be on “The Conners,” WEDNESDAY, DEC. 1 (9:00-9:31 p.m. EST), on ABC. Watch episodes on demand and on Hulu the day following their premieres.”

Moving on is never easy and that is going to be a big theme of the next new episode it seems. The ABC sitcom is going to also bring Louise back into the home. Is there going to be a big issue with getting rid of the furniture with Dan’s daughter back in the house? If I had to bet, I’d say we get a few flashbacks and good memories while the furniture set is being set up to sell. Perhaps Dan will decide to keep just one piece to remind him of his departed wife.

‘The Conners’ Darlene Has a New Boyfriend

It was back in season 3 of The Conners when Darlene was rejected by her boyfriend Ben after she proposed. After a rough relationship with him, it looks like Darlene is moving on, at least temporarily. Dan’s daughter has a new boyfriend. While it might not stick, this might be just what she needs.

Her new boyfriend Nick is played by Andrew Leeds and while he is a new romance, he won’t be there long. He has a three-episode arc set up and that is about it. So, this looks like a relationship that will help Darlene heal after going through so much heartbreak with Ben.

However, fans are hoping that Ben won’t be gone forever. He fits in with the family and has been a huge help with Mark and others on the show. The Conners might need Ben more than they realize. Hopefully, we get to see plenty of him in the future.
