Did ‘Roseanne’ Do David Justice With Johnny Galecki’s Long-Awaited Return? (POLL)


In April 17’s Roseanne, Johnny Galecki returned to  to reprise his role as David Healy and the nostalgia was at an all-time high.

The Big Bang Theory actor made quite the entrance as he knocked on Darlene’s (Sara Gilbert) window outside the Conner home. Hilarity ensued when he and Darlene danced around old habits, but ultimately agreed it’s better if they remained friends versus being a couple.

While fans’ hopes for a reconciliation between the pair were dashed, David’s announcement that he’d be moving to Lanford gives hope that he may be back on the comedy series soon. We knew Galecki’s guest spot on the first season of the revival wasn’t going to extend past one episode, but Roseanne‘s recent renewal makes it more likely he’s not gone for good.

The storyline certainly allowed for such a return, because apart from David’s move to Lanford, it appears that David has either not seen his son Mark (Ames McNamara) since he was a baby or never met him at all.

“What’s Mark like?” asked David.

“He’s really artistic, very sweet, like you. And he likes to wear dresses. So now you’re all caught up,” Darlene answered.

With a truth bomb like this, there’s plenty more to explore. And it’s clear that many fans are hoping for just that.
