Esther Rolle exits the series
21 December 2016 | by kevin olzakSee all my reviews

"Love Has a Spot on His Lung" concludes the fourth season, Carl Dixon (Moses Gunn, last of six) brings home a hungover JJ, his worried mother angry with him for breaking off their relationship. Carl confides the reason why he did what he did, a visit to the doctor that shows lung cancer. He plans on selling his repair shop and leaving town after his operation, and entrusts Florida to tell the children. Carl receives a shock when Bookman reveals that he himself underwent the same operation five years before, giving Johnny Brown a chance to do his John Wayne impression. In the end Florida goes ahead and marries Carl, heading out West with him and leaving her family behind. Script wise, it made no sense for such a good Christian woman to run off with the first man to propose so soon after her husband's death, but Esther Rolle remained unhappy with the JJ character, only coaxed back after a year away.
