On the last new episode of The Conners, Darlene’s secret relationship with David finally came to light, and it spelled bad news for her relationship with Ben. After Darlene got a flat tire, she texted pretty much everyone, and the first two to show up were Ben and then David. She got out of that awkward spot with neither man the wiser (or so she thought), but when chatting with Jackie (who’s kind of been an annoying witch about the whole thing, actually) about it later, Darlene realized that her decision about the two men was already made – her text to Ben had been long, sweet, talking about needing to cuddle, while her text to David had been short and to the point about needing a ride. Nothing sweet or romantic about it. She decided to go with David to his therapy appointment (which he’d been after her to do for a while) and break up with him there so he had the therapist’s support right away. But before she could tell him, he actually broke up with her, stating that she never “heard” him, that she hadn’t since they were 15 (and what an emotional flashback to the OG series!) and he needed and deserved more. Good for David. Darlene actually got emotional and realized it hurt, even though it was needed, because it closed the door on their long-standing relationship for good. She then decided to confess to Ben, but Ben figured it out at the tire standoff, and he was just finishing up a breakup letter to Darlene when she got to work to tell him. He broke up with her but didn’t fire her…which can only lead to some interesting times ahead at the office! (And I do hope they eventually get back together. He’s a good guy and is good for her.)
As for the others in the family… Harris has a new friend, Odessa, and they were headed out to see The Rocky Horror Picture Show. This was before Darlene’s lie blew up in her face, and Harris blackmailed her into letting her go out in a skimpy outfit. Odessa is not exactly an ideal friend for Harris – tattoos, smelling like pot…and indeed, though Darlene told Harris she better not smell it on her later that night, Darlene and Odessa smoked pot that night in Harris’s room. Becky walked in, reminded Harris they had an addiction problem in the family, and took away their bong (or whatever. I don’t do it, so I don’t know if that’s what it was or not. LOL).
Speaking of Becky… She told Louise that she wanted the open bartender position, but Dan secretly told Louise not to give it to her. Becky noticed and got upset. Dan said he was worried about her because of her problem with alcohol, and she reminded him she hadn’t had a drop since finding out she was pregnant with the baby. Things got heated again between them later, when he arrived home to find that Becky had gathered all of his beer and was in the process of throwing it all away. They found peace, and Dan realized he had to trust Becky. It’s really nice seeing them grow closer this season.
On tonight’s episode, “Nightmare on Lunch Box Street,” Jackie learns that the Chinese restaurant is going out of business and sees an opportunity to reopen the Lunch Box, but she’s caught by surprise when she uncovers a secret. Meanwhile, Mary gets upset when a woman assumes she is adopted, and Darlene continues to deal with her complicated love life.
