Final episode: Very good, but a few loose ends.
13 September 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The finale of "Will & Grace" was very good but I feel it could have been better. Anyone watching the show for years would have thought that Will and Grace would be the ones who would spend their lives together, since they seemed to have a deep, soulful connection when compared to Jack and Karen, who developed a playful, immature and even superficial relationship. Yet, this was not the case: Jack and Karen grew old together, while Will and Grace didn't speak to each other for 2 years, then reconciled, and then lost touch with each other for 20 years. I liked this twist because this actually happens in reality. Sometimes close best friends grow apart while mere acquaintances become life-long soul mates. Another twist that I liked in the series finale was that Jack, who for years was taken care of financially by Karen, was now the one who was taking care of her financially. Reversal of fortune is quite common in the real world and a very humbling thought. Be sure to develop friendships that will sustain you as you grow older even if you sometimes have to give more in the beginning. Don't assume that you will always be successful and don't look down on those who are less successful than you.

There were a few loose ends in the episode. What ever happened to Jack's son Elliot? Did they maintain a relationship? Is Jack a grandfather? Why would Jack appear to take care of Karen but not his own son for so many years? Jack's son was not discussed at all.

Also, why were Jack and Karen still single in the finale? They were both attractive and very sexual people. Couldn't they at least be dating other people or having some casual (and safe) encounters with different people?

What ever happened to Karen wanting to have a baby? Did she give up on that? And what happened to her relationship with her stepchildren - the ones she lived with for so many years. There was no mention of them. They could at least have devoted one line to these issues.

Perhaps I am nitpicking and the writers wanted to show that Jack and Karen became comfortable with who they were. But I always believe that shows should not just dismiss certain personal and family issues in a final episode after incorporating them in the show over the years.

I was not comfortable with the storyline that featured Jack ending up wealthy after his lover, Beverly Leslie, was killed off leaving Jack his estate especially since Jack didn't love Beverly Leslie at all. I would have liked to see Jack become wealthy by becoming a famous actor, dancer or even winning the lottery but not at the expense of someone else. It's true that Jack was planning on breaking up with Beverly before Beverly died and that Jack had nothing to do with Beverly's death but I still felt that storyline was a little too gruesome. Beverly Leslie was a quirky, funny character and didn't deserve to go that way. It seems that the writers were punishing him just because he wasn't openly gay or "out" but I don't think that people should be punished just because they are closet gays.

I loved the scene where Jack and Karen sing "Unforgettable" together while Jack plays the piano. Very touching.

All in all, I think the "Will & Grace" finale was very moving and entertaining at the same time.
