Lori Loughlin joins the Full House cast for the series' second season in the role of Rebecca "Becky" Donaldson, the new co-host of Danny Tanner's (Bob Saget) local TV series "Wake Up San Francisco." Before the season is over, Becky will have fallen in love with Danny's brother-in-law, Jesse Cochran (John Stamos), but whether or not she'll accept his season-ending proposal is left up in the air. Meanwhile, Jesse and Danny's comedian pal Joey Gladstone (Dave Coulier) continue lending their helping hands as the widowed Danny tries to raise his daughters -- 11-year-old D.J. (Candace Cameron), six-year-old Stephanie (Jodie Sweetin), and three-year-old Michelle (played by twins Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen) -- without maternal assistance. This season's highlights include the introduction of Richard Paul as Danny's bombastic boss, Mr. Strowbridge, and the first appearance of John Aprea as Jesse's Greek father, Nick. Also worth noting is the crisis developing around the 12th birthday party of D.J.'s best friend, Kimmy Gibler (Andrea Barber); the guys' Three Stooges costumes for a Halloween party; a "dream night" with the Beach Boys (as themselves); the episode "Our Very First Christmas," with the usual mixups and queries about Santa's existence; the girls' competition over rewards for good grades; Jesse "overbooking" himself on his birthday; and in the two-episode season finale, an eventful getaway to Lake Tahoe.
