Lori Loughlin was written out of the Full House spinoff Fuller House, but her character "Becky" hadn't been mentioned again... until now! As People reports, the last episodes in the final season of Fuller House were released on Tuesday, and one of them had "Becky" come up in conversation once more.
Fuller House reveals location of "Aunt Becky" through "Uncle Jesse"
The episode titled "Be Yourself, Free Yourself" sees John Stamos' character "Uncle Jesse" mention "Becky" for the first time since March 2019, when Loughlin was arrested after being involved in a high-profile college admissions scandal.
As People explains, the episode has "Uncle Jesse" turning to his niece "D.J. Tanner"— played by Candace Cameron Bure— for advice after making a playdate into a sting operation to find out who bit his daughter "Pamela". "You don't think you should run this by Aunt Becky first?" "D.J." asks.
"Becky is in Nebraska helping out her mother," Jesse responds. "I don't want to bother her with a tiny little thing like this." Then, "D.J." suggests that "Jesse" isn't contacting "Becky" because he knows she wouldn't approve of his plan. "Right, because she'd tell you not to do what you're about to do," she says.
Fuller House final season also sees triple wedding and a pregnancy
Fuller House's reveal regarding "Becky's" whereabouts wasn't the only major thing that happened in the show's final episodes! As People mentions, the last half of season 5 of Fuller House saw a rekindled romance between "D.J." and "Steve" (Scott Weinger), as well as "Stephanie Tanner" (Jodie Sweetin) and "Jimmy Gibler" (Adam Hagenbuch) navigating through parenthood.
It also revisited the on-again, off-again relationship between "Kimmy Gibler" (Andrea Barber) and her husband "Fernando" (Juan Pablo Lee Pace). Full House cast members Bob Saget and Dave Coulier even made appearances throughout the show's final season, which culminated in a triple wedding and pregnancy announcement!
Stamos on Loughlin's criminal charge: "It doesn't make sense"
Loughlin had appeared in all four previous seasons of Fuller House, so her absence in the show's final season was felt by her cast members. When Barber recently spoke to People Now, she called Loughlin "one of the sweetest, kindest and most down-to-earth people I’ve ever met."
"It just felt like there was a hole in the whole season but also in that final episode," Barber said. "She should’ve been there, and I’m sorry that she wasn’t." And while Stamos previously said that he didn't want to talk about the situation much until Loughlin's trial, as People mentions, he did mention it in an interview with GQ back in August.
"I gotta be careful. I want to wait until the trial happens… and then talk about it," Stamos said to GQ. "I’ll tell you one thing that has been strange is: Honestly, I can’t figure it out. It doesn’t make sense."
"I talked to her the morning everything hit. I just can’t process it still," he shared. "Whatever happened, I’m pretty sure that the punishment is not equal to the crime, if there was a crime.”
