‘The Conners’ recap: Sometimes, family is no laughing matter

Spoiler alert: This story contains significant details from Tuesday’s episode of ‘The Conners.’

‘The Conners’ offered its fair share of laughs on Tuesday, but the ABC comedy’s fall finale got serious for a bit in exploring the relationship between sisters Darlene (Sara Gilbert) and Becky (Lecy Goranson).

Gilbert and Goranson have been surprisingly strong pillars in the jury-rigged spinoff of the canceled “Roseanne,” bringing humor and depth to sarcastic Darlene, the college-educated mother of two with a dream of writing, and beaten-down Becky, a woman juggling sobriety and pregnancy as she hopes to turn her life around.

Tuesday’s episode was all about relationships. Katey Sagal made a welcome guest appearance as Louise, a longtime friend making a move on widower Dan (John Goodman), who is oblivious to her flirting.
