Ellen's final appearance!
12 August 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Ellen Harper Jackson hasn't been a good daughter since she blew off her Aunt Fran's funeral for a bridge tournament. She tries to make amends in this final appearance of Betty White who was now Rose Nylund on Golden Girls. Ironically, her co-star is Rue McClanahan who played Aunt Fran. Mama is playing scrabble with her family and Iola who is like family in the dining room when Ellen arrives with a gift to make amends. Ellen tries to apologize for not being there at the funeral. Regardless, Ellen is in the hospital for a procedure and the family learns that Ellen is there. Not knowing the kind of procedure, Mama and the gang head straight to the hospital without having dinner.
