I’d nominate Matt Bomer right now! He was a riot in an instant classic Will/Jack “mistaken identities” setup that sitcoms were created to do. Wasn’t as impressed with Grace and Karen’s thread, though the physical comedy of Debra Messing pole-dancing and Megan Mullally giving Minnie Driver a lap dance was a true hoot.December 7, 2018 at 2:59 pm #1202693626
This episode was OUTSTANDING. Easily the best of the season. Sean Hayes and Eric McCormack killed it.December 7, 2018 at 5:36 pm #1202693768
Excellent episode all around, I just wish they had made better use of Minnie Driver. Lorraine is too funny a character to only pop in for brief scenes from time to time. Matt Boomer was terrific and knowing that he’s going to be around for a few more episodes is a good thing.
That said, I really missed David Schwimmer this episode. He’s terrific as Noah. Also, I’d like to see more episodes with the four main characters all in the same storyline/scene.December 7, 2018 at 5:40 pm #1202693773
Blythe Danner was the easy highlight of this episode. Her scenes with Megan Mullally were excellent. I doubt that she’ll be nominated for this guest role again, but I’d be fine with her getting back in there. Not as interested in Grace meeting Katie in the cutesy way that she did, or Jack arguing with his boss over who’s more oppressed. I guess it was a funny running joke though of how no one could see the elderly woman lol.
Now, I thought that Jack and his boss arguing over the most oppressed group was a highlight of the episode; and the punchline with the white guy saying he’s the most oppressed and them slamming the door in his face was hilarious. It was imho actually a rather brilliantly written scene; the kind of stuff W&G was always known for.
I would totally give W&G a nomination for writing, because they have been on-fire this season.December 7, 2018 at 5:44 pm #1202693780
It’s still weird to me not having Alan Arkin as Grace’s father. Robert Klein is fine and all, but it’s not quite the same.
I agree that is weird, but for me what has been more weird/off-putting is having Mary McCormack as Grace’s sister instead of Geena Davis. I really don’t know why they couldn’t just ask Geena Davis to reprise the role. Mary is a completely different type of actress.December 7, 2018 at 8:50 pm #1202693895
Minnie Driver’s appearance here is better than the one last season. They really utilized her better here.December 17, 2018 at 7:10 pm #1202704531
I definitely think that Will & Grace stepped it up over last season and deserves more recognition.December 19, 2018 at 7:16 pm #1202706541
This could be a potential submission for Eric McCormick. His storyline was the stronger of the two, but this was a fun episode overall. Minnie Driver is always a delight.December 19, 2018 at 8:21 pm #1202706580
Does Messing have what it takes to get an Emmy nomination this year?December 19, 2018 at 8:30 pm #1202706582

WHAT A RETURN. Best episode of an already outstanding season. Tracy Poust & Jon Kinnally can do no wrong and absolutely deserve an Emmy nomination. Then you have this cast. It’s obvious to say but there is no stronger comic four on television. Individually they are basically better than the rest – together they overwhelm the competition that it’s difficult to remember who else is in the Emmy race. I am so so grateful that this exquisite show returned.
