    I don't know if I've seen every episode or not because I have a question.

    I know Edith dies but was there an episode where she died or was there an episode where they just mentioned she died?

    Watching Archie break down when he finds Edith's slipper under the bed is heartbreaking.

    Why did they decide to kill off Edith in the middle of Archie Bunker's Place.

    Jean Stapleton wanted to pursue other acting opportunities beyond the role of Edith Bunker, so they wrote her out.

    It was touching to see the compassion in Archie.
