Although the late Betty Garrett would attempt to claim her absence was due to some kind of contract mix-up and she really didn't want to leave the show, I have to wonder what else could they have done to explain Edna's absence? Having Frank dump her would have been totally uncharacteristic of the gruff-on-outside but softie within character and it would have even more of a bummer to have Edna die. I guess the best way they could have spun it might have been that Edna was having to tend a sick relative for an extended period but even that wouldn't have been any kind of funny.
