The Partridge Family (1970–1974)
Nonetheless, it was inevitable that Scott Lang and Hope van Dyne’s latest outing would at least have to acknowledge the grim, universe-changing repercussions of Thanos’ actions in Infinity War, and so director Peyton Reed left audiences with one last bombshell before they left theater. Before we continue, though, be warned that spoilers lie ahead.

I’m glad that last week I gave a short, simple and singular answer, because there’s absolutely no way to do this one without moving into a laundry list, starting with “The Oc” and “Hide & Seek,” a sequence so seminal in its moment that it earned an “SNL” parody.

The 83-year-old actress played Cassidy's mom on The Partridge Family, but in real life, she was married to his dad, Jack Cassidy. In a touching statement to Et, Jones pays tribute to her "sweet" stepson.
"Long before he played my son on The Partridge Family, David Cassidy was my stepson in real life. As a little boy, his sweet sensitivity and wicked sense of humor were already on display, and I will treasure the years we spent working and growing together," she says. "I will also find solace knowing that David is now with his dad."
"My heart is with David’s daughter, Katie, his son, Beau, and with Shaun, Patrick, and Ryan, whom I know are deeply missing their brother today," Jones continues. "Thank you for the enormous outpouring of affection you have offered our family at this difficult time."
