How a joke about the Conners perfectly explains Jackie’s constant presence

Fans are excited that ABC’s The Conners continues to advance and successfully move away from the original series’ lead character, Roseanne. However, one character doesn’t seem to be going anywhere anytime soon. Since the death of her sister Roseanne from an opioid overdose, Jackie seems to spend all of her time in the Conner household. This inexplicable phenomenon has entered the realm of nonsense as Jackie has a full time job as well as a significant other who she lives with!

With Roseanne Barr absent, it’s pretty obvious why the writers of The Conners decided to let Jackie hang around the house for an unusually long part of the day. But as for the reality of The Conners world, that fact remained unclear until the second half of season four. That changed when Dan, who was complaining about his own domestic situation, suddenly turned his attention to Jackie and asked her why she spends there every day. She reacts just as Jackie would, declaring, “I’m the wise elder that everyone comes to for advice.” With viewers at home, that typical reaction would normally be met with plenty of eye rolls, but if you think about it , Jackie might be right.

At this point in The Conners’ journey, Jackie has followed in Roseanne’s footsteps as best she could. In her mind, she must be there for Dan and the kids (who are certainly not kids anymore). There is no better way to be an always available aunt than to be there literally all the time. Of course, in Jackie’s eyes, their significance extends far beyond the reality of The Conners universe, but that’s what has always made Laurie Metcalf’s character so endearing. And as time (and episodes) progresses, the family will come to realize just how important their presence really is. How a joke about the Conners perfectly explains Jackie’s constant presence
