In final week’s episode “Miracles,” Darlene took on a job writing copy for a trashy native crime tabloid. Her boss is a gruff and burly man named Ben, a man that’s not too eager on modifications or listening to new concepts. Darlene met Ben on the proper time, too, as she simply realized that she has a behavior of courting weak-willed guys starting from her ex-husband David to Justin Lengthy (okay, a man performed by Justin Lengthy). Ben’s undoubtedly not weak-willed, and their shut working quarters have introduced them unexpectedly shut collectively. On this week’s episode “One Flew Over the Conners’ Nest,” Ben swings by Darlene’s evening job as a on line casino waitress to confront a lecherous excessive curler. It appears like Ben… truly cares about Darlene??
