This is how ‘The Goldbergs’ approached the departure of Jeff Garlin in the season premiere



CNN

Saying goodbye is never easy, but the Goldberg family is doing their best in the new season of “The Goldbergs.”

The show wasted no time addressing Jeff Garlin’s exit from the sitcom, mentioning in the opening moments of Wednesday’s season premiere that the Murray patriarch had passed away “just a few months ago” and went on to show that the family is still processing your pain.

Adam and Barry worked through some of their feelings in a “Field of Dreams” inspired plot. But the real kick in the guts was a storyline in which Erica (Hayley Orrantia) and Geoff (Sam Lerner) enlisted Beverly’s (Wendi McLendon-Covey) help to set up her nursery.

The process forces Beverly to confront Murray’s absence and her inability to go through some of his remaining belongings. She finally decides it’s time to do it, cleaning out a closet full of clothes and getting rid of her old chair.

However, the empty space in the living room proves too much for her and she embarks on a mission to retrieve the item, however she learns that it was taken from the sidewalk where they left it.

Efforts to find him are unsuccessful, but Erica aims to help her mother get through the moment.

“He will always be in our hearts, chair or no chair,” she tells Beverly.

They then enter the nursery, only to discover that Pop-Pop (Judd Hirsch) has taken the chair and turned it into a rocking chair for the baby’s room.

“This room is finally perfect,” says Erica.

Anyone pass the tissues?

“The Goldbergs” airs Wednesdays on ABC.
