Roseanne is back, and there are plenty of Easter eggs for fans as they get reacquainted with the Conners, 21 years after the original series wrapped. Dan (John Goodman) is alive, the house looks the same, and Darlene (Sara Gilbert) even lives at home.
But it has been two decades, so things have changed for the Conners, most notably son D.J. (Michael Fishman), who is now married and has a young daughter. In the first episode of the Roseanne reboot, "Twenty Years to Life," it was revealed that D.J. recently came back from a tour in Syria with the Army. D.J. returned to his Lanford hometown with his daughter Mary (Jayden Rey), who he shares with his wife, Geena. It was also revealed that D.J.'s wife Geena is still serving overseas. Nostalgic Roseanne fans may recall that Geena Williams was the name of the black classmate that D.J. refused to kiss in the 1994 Roseanne episode, "White Men Can't Kiss."
Longtime fans of the original Roseanne took note of the name of grown-up D.J.'s wife, with many viewers posting to Twitter to ask if this was the same Geena that D.J. went to school with. Roseanne star Michael Fishman later responded to confirm that D.J. did indeed marry his schoolmate.
"Yes, D.J. grew up and married Geena! #Roseanne," Fishman posted to Twitter after the first episode of the Roseanne revival aired.
