On this week’s Watch With Us podcast, we shared everything that worked on the premiere of Roseanne, how they handled the “death” of Dan Conner (John Goodman) and just how much politics were put into the show. The main rift was between Roseanne Conner (Roseanne Barr) and her sister Jackie (Laurie Metcalf). While Roseanne was a Donald Trump supporter, Jackie walked in the house wearing a “Nasty Woman” T-shirt, throwing jabs at POTUS left and right.

However, that doesn’t mean their bond as sisters is over.

“The Roseanne and Jackie relationship is always going to be a bit contentious because they’re sisters, so that has to be in there,” Metcalf told Us Weekly exclusively. “The pilot episode is the perfect example because there’s been a real rift between them, and yet they manage to make it through that because it’s family and you have to. But throughout the episodes, sometimes they’re team players and sometimes they’re not. Usually, they’re team players when they gang up against Mom. That’s when they’re super strong together!”
