She's been such a huge part of the show and to Howard's character. I can't tell you how many time I've laughed hard over some of her lines. She was hilarious and extremely talented. As Mayim said, it's a rough day.

so what is the future of Mrs Wolowitz/ Will they have her die?

Not really. she wasn't a Major/Main Castmember. she was recurring and never seen. She will be miss but taping will go on for next week and Life Goes on for the cast. I am sure they will send their sympathy to her Family

The cast showed they are saddened by a much loved cast member

RIP Carol, you will be missed.

 

As for Mrs Wolowitz, I personally think the best thing to do is write her out.

For one I never liked to see (or hear in this case) someone else play a character that has been portrayed by someone else for so long.

But more importantly, to me it is a sign of respect to Carol. That way she will always be Mrs Wolowitz for us.

 

So I think they will "kill her off" this season. Maybe not in the next few episodes that are going to be taped.

It will "solve"  the Stuart/Howard/Debbie fighting, but probably not in the way they wanted to.

It's a tragic loss for her family obviously first and foremost and the cast who clearly loved her ( as  they love everyone in this cast) but I tend to agree with you, Chiany. It's going to make for a dramatic sting in the show I didn't want ever if they do kill her off, far bigger than Proton's death.  It is sort of the same as Phil Hartman (Troy McClure) and Marcia Wallace ( Mrs Krabappel) deaths in the Simpsons. They were irreplaceable talents linked to their characters so the characters went. Very sad day.

Heartbreaking for her family and friends, her castmates and the crew. I think the "what to do about her role" will probably be decided a little way down the road.

This is so sad ... RIP Carol Ann Susi. 
I can't believe we won't hear her voice again in the show, she was such an important part of the cast.  :icon_cry:

That's so sad.  I'm sure whatever the writer's come up with to explain (or not) her absence will suffice.  I don't know that it would be something they would address right away though.

Its very sad. I feel like the cast/crew was told to not say anything until after the taping, as they all came out post-taping with their social media comments.  It must be very hard to work after news like this. 

 

Totally different, but when my co-worker died suddenly, it was a very sad feeling around the office for a few days.  Imagine that feeling while trying to shoot a comedy.  Must have been a hard taping for them.

 

And I am really interested to see what they do, as the character Mrs. W has an active plotline going on currently. 

 

So sad though, I actually never realized her whole career until the news late last night came out and I read more about her. 

 

So lucky she was at the taping I got to see.  Very sweet lady, everybody had nice things to say.

I wonder how much TPTB knew about her condition, since they had this ongoing storyline for her.  I mean, maybe they knew she was fighting cancer, but maybe she was doing okay.

 

I know I had a friend who developed Lukemia and seemed to be doing okay, having treatments, etc., then suddenly kind of went downhill and died in a matter of days.

 

It's just so sad and shocking.

 

I do wonder, also, how they're going to handle her loss.  If they're going to have Howard's mother pass away, I think it will also have to be a sudden turn of events and it will impact both Howard and Stuart.  I don't know if they can pull any comedy out of such a story, though.  Still, they'll have to deal with it in some way.

 

I wonder if they have any future scripts in process that would have involved her, because of the ongoing story with Stuart.

 

And I also wonder how Kaley feels about it.  While Carol wasn't a main character, Kaley went through the loss of a co-star when John Ritter died so suddenly on 8 Simple Rules.  I remember they wrote the father's death into the show and they had James Garner join the cast as the grandfather, and I think they added someone else as well--was it David Spade? (or Seth Green?)--but I don't think it lasted much past his death.

A friend of mine in Texas had what she thought was a lingering flu and went to the doctor.  By the time the tests came back diagnosing her with Leiomyosarcoma (cancer of the smooth muscle); she was in a coma.  A week after that she was dead.  She was 38 and had 2 young kids.

From feeling a little off to dying in 2 weeks can happen with very aggressive cancers.

I have also seen it with a co-workers wife that had ovarian cancer and a friends father with pancreatic cancer.  

 

I doubt TPTB and even Susi herself could have predicted the swift devastation of certain cancers.

I wonder that as well and if they will have Howard's mom pass away even though it will be a sudden of events on the ongoing storyline of Stuart/Howard/Debbie fighting, even though it is but probably not in the way they wanted to.

 

And even though this is slightly off topic, I believe it was David Spade that joined the cast of 8 Simple Rules following the death of John Ritter 11 years ago.
