After? Read our past Connerii recaps here.
In this week Connerii, Sarah Chalke resumes her role as Andrea, while OG Becky makes a big decision.
Becky has not seen Andrea since he suffered a surrogate. When Andrea wanders in La Casa Bonita with her little son, she tells Becky that, despite all the help that money can provide, she is still overwhelmed by maternity. In fact, she is not even sure she has given up her mother.
After Maria and Bridgette tell Becky that they want to adopt her baby, Becky takes a while to think about it. He knocks at the front door in the middle of the night and says he wants to go through the arrangement. Then he wanders to Conner's residence to talk to Darlene. There, Becky confesses she's alcoholic. She tells Darlene she needs to drink since she learned she was pregnant. Darlene assures Becky that she will have the full support of her family if she keeps her child. Moreover, if Becky's drink becomes a problem, she will come in and help raise her baby, while her older sister will take her together. Becky thanked Darlene for not being a "troll judge" once and saying she never felt closer to her sister. And with that, Becky tells Maria and Bridgette that she has changed her mind about the arrangement.
Elsewhere in the episode …
* Jackie gets a city permit to build a chicken basket in the back yard. What, at first, feels like a strange B's behavior becomes a bit more when Jackie reveals to Dan that the chicken basket is an excuse to go on every day when Roseanne left. In response, Dan tells his brother-in-law that he does not need any reason to stop; she will always be a family.
* Darlene drops out of casino job to avoid having to deal with a pattern that constantly harasses her.
* Ben and Darlene seem to be standing around the inevitable. They share a moment when they teach their self-defense technique at the office. Later, he appears at the casino to check out, which Darlene perceives as a "friend".
* In addition to Chalke's return, Natalie West resumes her role as Crystal. Dan's heir returns to work at the casino, after he decided that retreat is not everything he's created. "I was traveling," she tells Darlene, "but apparently, I'm scared of people who are different from me."
