Love is in the air on the season finale of Will & Grace, as Jack’s wedding takes a detour and Will and Grace make bold romantic decisions.

Now that’s how Will & Grace does a season finale! After building up “Jack’s Big Gay Wedding” all season, the big day finally arrives, but like all weddings, it’s not without its minor and major snags. When their flight to Spain gets canceled, they’re forced to plan an impromptu wedding at the airport, which throws Jack into a full-on meltdown.

Before the wedding can go off with a hitch, the rest of the gang toils in their own relationship drama. Will and McCoy face a geographical change, Grace meets an inspirational new man, and Karen comes to terms with her truth with a little help from an old friend. Let’s recap the season finale of Will & Grace with the gang’s five sickest burns! (Warning: Spoilers ahead!)

1. “I would never let you die. Then who would be around to criticize me?”

The gang heads to the airport for Jack and Estefan’s destination wedding in Spain, but due to poor weather conditions, their flight gets canceled. Will and Grace avoid arguing about Noah by arguing about Will’s “head condom” (one of those elaborate pillows for planes), but that’s hardly important when McCoy shares with Will that he landed his dream job in London. Can they handle long-distance? Luckily, Jack’s much too preoccupied with the crumbling of his big day to notice the extra drama.

2. “You can’t marry your sister!” “In Florida you can.”

Jack takes everything in stride… kidding, of course. He cracks under the pressure of Estefan’s idea to throw their wedding at the airport. Hey, sometimes you have to work with what you’ve got. By a stroke of luck, the couple run into Miss Coco, who’s on her way to officiate her sister’s wedding and offers to perform the ceremony. Meanwhile, Smitty talks Karen through her sexual identity crisis, and McCoy turns down the job for Will… who immediately makes him call back and accept it.

3. “I have a Bowflex and cargo pants that would say otherwise.”

As her friends deal with complicated relationship struggles, Grace handles her own woes the best way she knows how: eating a cinnamon roll. She meets Marcus (guest star Reid Scott), a kind stranger who’s off to travel the world on a whim. Grace wishes she could pick up and follow her desire to travel, and Marcus dares her to do what she wants. He even almost invites her to accompany him on his trip. One question: Noah, who?

Back at the gate, Nikki arrives for the wedding, and Karen attempts to hit her with the bad news. In an homage to Ellen’s iconic coming out scene in “The Puppy Episode,” Karen admits that she’s straight, which reverberates through the microphone and the whole airport. Per Smitty’s advice, she claims that she was lost post-divorce. It’s rather blatant bisexual erasure, unless Will & Grace continues to explore Karen’s sexual identity next season.

4. “This is the worst wedding since Batman married Robin in that filthy cave.”

Finally, Jack comes to terms with the fact that he’s getting married at a terminal in the airport, but it’s not without one last dig at the situation. During his vows, he realizes that as long as it’s with Estefan, it’s the perfect wedding. However, Will nearly steals Jack’s thunder by dropping to one knee and proposing to McCoy before the “I dos.” How will getting married solve Will and McCoy’s long-distance problem? As long as it keeps Matt Bomer around, we’re willing to find out.

5. “This is unlike me, but I’m happy for my friends.”

In the end, Jack and Estefan get married, Will and McCoy get engaged, and Grace joins Marcus for an excursion around the world. While Grace embarks on a potentially life-changing adventure with someone who could be the real one (hey, Reid Scott just ended his run on Veep… just saying), Karen sits at the bar with Smitty, and this time, he’s the one laughing at her not-so-funny “jokes.” But she confesses her joy for her friends and participates in the “Love Is in the Air” dance number at the reception. Although Jack didn’t get his unicorn dessert station, it was the celebration of a lifetime.
