Storyline

Roseanne makes a deal with Jackie, that if she asks Fred out, Roseanne will ask their mother to become a silent partner in the restaurant, and stay away. This hurts Beverly's feeling, and she swears not to have anything further to do with either one of them. Jackie and Fred go out; Fred wants to keep seeing Jackie, but she doesn't want to. Roseanne feels guilty about hurting her Mom, and wants her Mom to do something hurtful back to lessen her guilt. Beverly takes her up on it by selling her share of the diner to the last person Roseanne would have expected... or wanted. Written by Lynne Boris Johnston

The Mommy's Curse (#6.2)
31 March 2017 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Jackie can't work with Beverly anymore and asks Roseanne to make Beverly become a silent partner. Jackie asks Dan's friend out but doesn't want it to be serious. Roseanne asks Beverly to do something mean to her so she doesn't feel bad and she does so by selling her part in the restaurant to Leon.

It was pretty funny how Beverly was dealing with the situation and being asked not to work with them anymore. I especially loved her selling it to Leon. I didn't expect that! This is great now we will see more of him. Hopefully though we will not lose Beverly, she is a funny character as well.
