Roseanne returned to primetime with two consecutive episodes on Tuesday night after a 21-year hiatus and immediately tackled the political divide in the country. It was revealed that Roseanne (Roseanne Barr) and her sister Jackie (Laurie Metcalf) were on bad terms since the 2016 election, as evidenced by a family dinner during which they took jabs at each other. Jackie, a Hillary Clinton supporter, brought Russian flavored dressing to a family dinner. Roseanne, a fan of President Donal Trump, sarcastically asked Jackie if she’d like to take a knee during grace. The episode also addressed the original series finale in which Dan (John Goodman) seemingly died from a heart attack. It was revealed that he was merely asleep. “You looked happy. I thought maybe you moved on,” Roseanne told her husband.
