During the episode, Lopez told viewers that Diamond had been like a "little brother" to him. They had both been young teenagers when filming the 90s TV show "Saved by the Bell."

Lopez shared that in their last conversation, Diamond had been so optimistic and happy. Unfortunately, shortly after their conversation, he passed away. Lopez shared with viewers:

"I spoke with him a couple of weeks ago, after he got his diagnosis, even then he was full of energy and was optimistic. Life is just so fragile."

He underwent chemotherapy on January 21. However, he passed away suddenly a couple of weeks after receiving the diagnosis. His friends and fans were all shocked by the news.

Lopez said that the two former co-stars had been in discussion about a possible reunion for Diamond's character Samuel "Screech" Powers on the Peacock reboot version of the show.

He had admitted to trying to persuade Diamond to do something in the reality TV business, which he would have produced. Unfortunately, nothing is possible now, Lopez explained:

"Unfortunately that won't come to fruition now, but he was in good spirits at least. He was pretty positive and optimistic last I spoke to him."
