Storyline

Will must decide whether to support Grace's independence by encouraging her to take an apartment across town or selfishly keep her close by inviting her to share his living space. The decision may be made easier, however, by the nagging presence of Will's current roommate, Jack, and his parrot, Guapo. Meanwhile, Karen and Jack meet for the first time and find each other to be fabulous. Written by Anonymous

Another Great Episode of Will & Grace
5 October 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This was a great follow-up episode of Will & Grace. Grace has yet to move out of her ex-fiancé's house and Will tells her that she needs to start looking at apartments. Grace just wants to move in with Will, but Will does not think that is a good idea. She finally finds an apartment that she wants and she signs a two-year lease on it. Will learns about this and does not think that she has made the right decision. He realizes that he can not be apart from Grace, and he asks her to move in with him. She declines because she wants to do something on her own for once. After she did that, she accepts Will's offer and moves in with him. This is also the episode where we see Jack and Karen meet each other for the first time. Their scene together was hilarious, and I could definitely tell that the writers were going to expand on their relationship with each other. They have such great chemistry together. As I said earlier, this was another fantastic episode of Will & Grace following to pilot.
