It's this exchange that got viewers talking in the comments section, and many are convinced the character could be pregnant and is feeling worried about telling her husband.

One person said: "I think Lucille might be pregnant y'all," as another responded with their theory: "Maybe [she's upset] because it was a shock, unplanned or unexpected. Maybe she never expected it."  

A third was equally convinced and expressed their desperation for it to be true: "I swear if Lucile isn't pregnay!!" Meanwhile, a fourth was simply concerned for the character, adding: "What is going on with Lucille???? I hate having to wait a week."
