Nancy's death will be worked into the final episodes of the series. Just as Casey and Alison get engaged again, they turn to her with their news but they're too late. "I actually considered pre-taping that final scene with Nancy just to be safe but I thought that would be bad karma," Chris Goutman told TV Guide. "Then Helen died and we weren't able to do what we had planned, and that just added more emotional burden to what we were already feeling. But my God, she was 91 years old! What a terrific run! What a terrific lady! Helen was in failing health the last couple of years and it was hard to bring her onto the show successfully, but we did what we could. I wish we could have done more, but it was so difficult for her. Even under those conditions, she was a magnificent force."
