1. Well, it does sort of fit with the story line, it seems...

I thought they had her hiding/swiping Oxy to treat her bad knee in one of the episodes, so....

2. Actually, I think it's cool

It really sucked the way that Roseanne jeopardized the livelihoods of the entire cast and crew for the show. Now they’ll get a chance to earn a living again without that psycho hovering over their heads.

4. Huh...

… how is an overdose cruel? It could be informative. Having the character "Rosanne" hit by a truck would be cruel. Having her raped and beaten to death would be cruel. Having her character overdose on painkillers is meaningful - and might really help people.

5. Oh, I was hoping her character had refused to get 'Obamacare' and had died of something

easily treatable....if only she'd had insurance.

6. She really is clueless, isn't she...

They're actually giving her a meaningful, poignant way out that would have left the audience thinking fairly kindly of her character and by extension, her.

And she whines about it.

dismissively,
Bright

13. Was this interview from Israel?

 

I thought she said she’s out of America for good?

8. They could have made her lapse into an Ambien dream

and pretend the entire last season never happened or she went into an Ambien blackout-type coma.

10. They should have done her in the way they "killed off" Dan in the original series.

From a heart attack. It would sure be ironic, considering they resurrected him for the new series.

14. Didn't they kill of John Goodman on the last show?

Why is killing her off cruel now? Because kf the opioid thing?

18. Should have had her die in a 14-hour armed standoff with police.

Just to make it clear she's no Bobby Ewing.
