Question by CoolBeans:): Home Improvement?
On the Nick at Nite show, “Home Improvement”, what happens to the middle child in the later episodes? The oldest, blonde one (Brad, maybe?) and the youngest (Mark?) are still there, but what about the other kid (Randy I think)? Does anyone have any information not just about the real life situation but about how the plot of the show changed to exclude him?

When the seventh season began, however, Mark grew into a teenage outcast who dressed in dark clothing, while Brad became interested in cars like his father and took up soccer. Randy joined the school newspaper, before leaving for Costa Rica in the eighth season episode “Adios.” This was done since Jonathan Taylor Thomas wanted to take time off to focus on academics. His last appearance on Home Improvement was the 1998 Christmas episode, with Thomas unwilling to return to the show for the series finale.
