'Kevin Can Wait' still mourning the still mysterious death of Donna

Since the death of Kevin’s wife, Donna — played by Erinn Hayes — Kevin Can Wait fans have been eagerly awaiting a revelation about just how she died. But Episode 2 offered no answers. This second episode was a bit less irreverent than the season premiere’s somewhat flip attitude towards the death of a major character. With Kevin wallowing a bit more in life as a single dad, his daughter Kendra said to him, “Ever since Mom passed away, you have been incredible. You know — really involved, which is amazing; so, so great.” He replied, “Sweet Pea, you gotta spit it out. I love you, but I got cookies baking.”

With Leah Remini becoming the new female lead, some fans have been less than supportive in the Twittersphere. But Remini is not known to back down from a fight, and has had some sharp retorts for a disgruntled fan base.

Kevin Can Wait airs Mondays at 8 p.m. on CBS.
