Will & Grace Provide A Cautionary Example That Pushes Together Their Widowed Parents

It's unanimous: Will and Grace are so lonely and pathetic that his mother and her father decide to try to find love with each other -- and Jack and Karen are determined not to end up like Will and Grace either.

Will having, in the last episode, impetuously invited Grace's father Martin to escape his isolation in Schenectady and stay with Grace and Will for a while, Grace lands on the perfect revenge: she invites Grace's mother Marilyn (returning guest star/Gwyneth Paltrow's mother Blythe Danner) to come stay with them as well! Grace and Will think they've survived the worst possible torture after getting through a game of Celebrity with them, but there is a lower low, as both kids walk in on their respective parents having sex. It seems as though Martin and Marilyn are so horrified by Grace and Will's enduring singlehood that they're willing to give each other a shot. And Will and Grace are also affecting other relationships in their orbit: Estefan (Brian Jordan Alvarez) becomes much more than a souvenir of Jack's breakup trip to Ibiza; and Karen carefully weighs the question of whether her attraction to Malcolm is worth giving up her marriage to Stan. We ponder everyone's romances in our latest Will & Grace & Kevin & Tara podcast!
