Karen reunites with enemy-in-law Danley Walker over poker while Will gets back at Jack for all the bald jokes in a score-settling Will & Grace.

What goes around comes around in the latest episode of Will & Grace’s farewell season, and everyone’s out for revenge. First and foremost, Karen unexpectedly squares off with Stanley’s brother Danley (guest star Patton Oswalt) during an underground poker game. The former in-laws battle out their animosity, but only one Walker will win in this family feud.

After 20 years of non-stop jokes about his hairline, Will finally decides to give Jack a taste of his own medicine. The teasing screeches to a halt thanks to a convenient revelation and a perfectly timed bald cap fake-out. Last but certainly not least, when Mrs. Timmer interferes with Grace’s one true love of food delivery, the mama bear-to-be bites back.

Let’s recap the latest episode of Will & Grace with the gang’s five sharpest burns. (Warning: Spoilers ahead!)

1. “I always dream I’m trapped in a sleeping bag with Jon Hamm and we have to have sex to survive.”

More from NBC

In the stressful early stages of her pregnancy, Grace has been experiencing anxiety dreams, like the one where her mother criticizes her parenting and turns into her French teacher giving her a quiz. Needless to say, Jack’s dreams are much different.

As Will and Grace await DNA test results to see what genetic traits they could pass onto their children, Will’s hairline becomes the topic of discussion, and Mrs. Timmer sets Grace on edge with new rules on upstairs takeout deliveries.

2. “Oh, Grace… You’re a couch toilet away from all of your dreams coming true.”

Grace laments the end of all the takeout she can dream arriving at her door, thanks to Mrs. Timmer’s implementation of an updated delivery policy. But she resolves to take on Timmer, the president of the tenant board, directly rather than having Will fight her battle. Somehow, her fight for takeout rights will reflect her single mother skills.

After a botched attempt at playing off a pizza delivery guy as her boyfriend, Grace rethinks her strategy for taking down Timmer — her second cousin, once removed. Oddly enough, Grace’s DNA results reveal an allergy to cheese, a carrier gene for dementia, and an unexpected familial connection to her no-nonsense neighbor.

3. “I earned every penny! I worked my lips to the bone.”

Karen receives a surprise invitation to the illegal, underground poker game she used to frequent during her marriage to Stan thanks to his absence. She arrives at the game to a surprise: her ex-brother-in-law Danley Walker (guest star Patton Oswalt). Of course, with Karen, there’s only one kind of tension — sexual — and that’s no different here. Danley harbors a thinly veiled crush on Karen, which she intends to use to her advantage to wipe the floor clean with him in cards.

4. “What’s up, Hairless Potter and the Half-Bald Prince?”

Since the original series, Jack has thrown barbs at Will about his weight and hairline, two things that reveal more about Jack’s own insecurities than what’s actually going on with Will’s body. When the subject of Will’s thinning hair comes up in the midst of DNA testing, Will takes matters into his own hands. He sees a doctor to talk options but discovers something more intriguing: Jack’s picture hanging in the before and after testimonial gallery. From there, he devises a plan for them both to shave their heads. However, only Jack goes bald, and Will gets his revenge.

5. “Unless we’re talking brain cells or all three kinds of virginity, I don’t like to lose.”

The poker game between Karen and Danley gets heated, but Karen ultimately takes home the win with a full house. But Danley tricks Karen into switching the deed to his house for the ownership of a rapidly declining minor league baseball team. Turns out, spite’s what’s for dinner on Will & Grace.

Danley had his eye on Karen the night she met Stanley, and sticking her with a financial loss settles the score. But Karen Walker never goes down without a fight. She gives her new team a pep talk while they’re in the showers… completely naked. That’s our problematic queen.
