The Conners fans reacted to a new promo that shows Darlene (Sara Gilbert) getting some unexpected news that could change the game for her and her family.
In a new promo shared to the ABC sitcom's official Instagram page, Wellman Plastics supervisor Robin (played by guest star Alexandra Billings) gave the middle Conner kid the surprising news that her "name came up" in a staff meeting. When asked what the people upstairs said about her, Robin let her know that they wanted to make her a line supervisor.
When Darlene asked why and assumed no one else wanted the job, Robin told her the current supervisor was stepping down to take care of a bleeding ulcer.
"Don't worry, it's not work-related," Robin said. "Although the drinking problem probably is."
Darlene thanked her tough boss and told her she never would have been able to get the job without her mentoring, and Robin agreed.
"Yeah you're right. Really is much more my victory than it is yours, isn't it," she deadpanned, before inviting Darlene upstairs to talk about compensation and benefits.
After Darlene's sister and co-worker Becky (Lecy Goranson) asked what the boss wanted, Darlene gloated.
Check out the clip below to see what she said, but it's a good bet Becky probably won't be thrilled to find out her younger sister is now her boss.
