While Will and Grace field move-in proposals from their respective boyfriends, Jack runs into an ex during a snowstorm and Karen ignites the newest Will & Grace ship.
The signature Will & Grace game night returns, and if you’re a loyal fan of the series, then you were probably waiting for the fallout before Grace and Noah could claim victory with that game-winning Kanye dig. Without fail, the other shoe drops when McCoy and Noah each ask Will and Grace about moving in together, and the titular duo instinctively fabricates reasons why not.
Meanwhile, a violent snowstorm forces Jack and Karen into confined spaces that test their limits and push them to their truest desires. For Jack, it’s facing temptation in the face when he’s trapped in an elevator with his ex-boyfriend, and for Karen, it’s meeting an unlikely new crush at the office. Let’s recap the latest episode of Will & Grace with the gang’s five sickest burns!
1. “You think you’re hotter than Adam Levine?”
It’s a classic Will & Grace game night, and by now we should all know that game night always leads to some sort of fight or feud. Luckily, Will didn’t internalize Grace’s comment about Adam Levine. Even though Grace and Noah take the win, Will and McCoy remain secure that they’re the better couple.
Riding their highs, Noah asks Grace to move in with him and McCoy asks to move in with Will, which prompts Will and Grace to lie about each other as an excuse. About that game night curse…
2. “Honey, no one’s above me.”
Thanks to the raging snowstorm outside, Karen’s stuck at the office and getting absolutely zero work done. So, it’s business at Grace Adler Designs as usual. A fellow lonely snowstorm escapee from an office upstairs, Nikki (guest star Samira Wiley), wanders down to offer her company to Karen. Of course, Karen leads with bravado, but Nikki soon manages to melt through her icy exterior and learn about Karen’s current relationship struggles with Malcolm.
3. “It’s nice to be in a bed where nothing crunches.”
Following the telling of their individual lies, Will and Grace convene in Grace’s bed and reveal their lies to each other. Will said Grace was mentally unstable, and Grace said Will was broke due to reckless gambling. Rather than dig into why they sidestepped furthering their commitment to the men they love, they decide to double down on their stories to avoid taking the next step.
However, Noah and McCoy swap stories in Will’s nutshell-free bed and realize they’ve been deceived. Somehow, Noah’s ultimatum (sweet McCoy acted angry, but really didn’t care) worked to shake Will and Grace from their fear of moving forward and reliance on easy comfort. Once again, Grace is moving out, but this time, McCoy’s moving right on in.

4. “Hopefully the only gay Abraham Lincoln play we’ll ever see.”
You’d think Will would have lobbed that barb directly at Jack, but it’s actually a publication’s review of his one-man show. Like most things, he takes the slight with a glass-half-full outlook. But his outlook doesn’t look so great when he’s trapped in an elevator and faced with his ex-boyfriend Drew.
After Drew confesses that he’s still in love with Jack, our guy really shows off his growth and rejects the temptation of a sordid hookup. That’s one small step for man and one giant leap for Jack!
5. “I’m talking about making my Venus feel Serena.”
Once Karen breaks out the martinis, the conversation with Nikki loosens up. They pivot to sex, where Nikki reveals she’s gay and Karen mutters the above joke. Whoever wrote that single line deserves a raise, an Emmy, and a standing ovation.
Nikki hits Karen with the hard truth that she shouldn’t bend over backwards for Malcolm if he’s not willing to lend the same effort. The heat of the moment sparks a crush in Karen, and she kisses Nikki. Without a doubt, this is the most exciting, ship-worthy pairing since the sitcom was revived.
