Default Lots of multi-part episodes in season 8

Archie Gets the Business, Edith’s 50th Birthday, Archie and the KKK, Archie’s Bitter Pill, Edith’s Crisis of Faith and the two-parter that ended the season, with the Stivics leaving. That’s half the episodes. A very dramatic season.

I always thought Season 8 was underrated and a step up from the two previous seasons to be honest

An awful lot happened in season 8.
Archie bought Kelseys.
Edith nearly raped on her birthday,of all days.
Beverly Lasalle murdered on Christmas eve.
The Stivics move to California.
Everything seemed to happen all at once.

this show was way before my time I was born in 91, but I have a question Stephanie is introduced after Mike & Gloria move right? im assuming writers decided to come up with her because they feared viewers would lose interest in the show if archie and edith were the only two main characters

Yes, and I'm sure that your assumption is correct.

I remember reading an article somewhere in the summer between the season where Mike and Gloria left and the next one where Stefanie was added to the cast; and it said that Norman Lear decided also to add her to the cast because they realized they had never had a kid as a regular and they thought it'd be interesting to have Archie interact with one.

this is just my theory; I never read or heard this anyplace but I think that since MASH and AITF were both on CBS and both were on at the time when MASH was getting all preachy and dramatic (never mind what I thought about those episodes-anyway) Norman Lear was trying to copy it.
