Final Episode Voiceover said:"My writing’s really what got me through the last year after Dan died. I mean at first I felt so betrayed as if he had left me for another women. When you’re a blue-collar woman and your husband dies it takes away your whole sense of security. So I began writing about having all the money in the world and I imagined myself going to spas and swanky New York parties just like the people on TV, where nobody has any real problems and everything’s solved within 30 minutes. I tried to imagine myself as Mary Richards, Jeannie, That Girl. But I was so angry I was more like a female Steven Segal wanting to fight the whole world."
I don't believe for a second that someone didn't come up with that last minute and it definitely wasn't the plan for the whole season, but that's a cool little explanation.Last season of Rosanne, where everything went crazy, was the titular character writing stories to help her cope with Dan dying. She never won the lottery. She never fought terrorists. Etc.
