The final episode of “Fuller House” dropped on Netflix Tuesday, with the show acknowledging the absence of Lori Loughlin’s Aunt Becky.
In the episode titled “Be Yourself, Free Yourself”, John Stamos’ Uncle Jesse mentions his wife for the first time in the second half of the fifth and final season of the rebooted series.
Turning to niece D.J. Tanner (Candace Cameron Bure) for advice, D.J. asks Jesse, “You don’t think you should run this by Aunt Becky first?”
“Becky is in Nebraska helping out her mother,” Jesse replies. “I don’t want to bother her with a tiny little thing like this.”
The mention of Becky was the first since Loughlin’s March 2019 arrest in the college admissions scandal. Loughlin and husband Massimo Giannulli pleaded guilty to conspiracy charges in May. The couple will be sentenced in August.
