They say love never dies. People do, though.
Except sometimes they don't.
Karen deals with the fact that the moving funeral for her husband Stan, in which she disposed of his ashes at sea, really amounted to just littering.
Meanwhile, Grace appears as a guest on Jack's new t.v. show, but something in editing goes horribly wrong and a firestorm of controversy breaks out. Adler must then patch up her reputation in front of a community that has mistaken her for a bigot.
Features an amazing conversation between Will and Karen, as Truman helps his friend work through her mixed feelings about her wayward spouse. An intelligent portrayal of characters who are more complex than you might think. A warm and clever episode all around.
Not the greatest episode...but not the worst.
While there are many who feel the show jumped the shark at the end of season 6 or near the beginning of season 7, I believe season 8 is when the writing simply went downhill.
Most of the jokes fall flat, and a lot of the interaction with the four characters is more awkward than usual in this episode.
The thing is, both these story lines were actually promising. Yet once again in this season, the jokes just aren't there. There is good emotional resonance from both the Karen and Will characters, which is nice to see. And the idea that anyone would think that Grace hates gays is a very funny idea, considering every bit of her long speech at the end is true. I give it an "above" for good story ideas, but barely an "average" for the humorless jokes.moreless
This episode is really cool!
Will is convince that Karen is really depressed about the fact that Stan is alive so she sends Rosario to Will's apartment, but Will is still convince that Karen is not taking out her feelings out, when he takes out a brick out of her solitude wall, she takes out all of her feelings that last all night, when Will confronts it about it, both of them discover that they should put the bricks back in the wall. Meanwhile, Jack edits an interview about Grace which ends up saying that Grace hates gays, which ends up Grace trying to win her happiness back. Really cool episode!moreless
Karen empieza a sentirse mal por la reaparicion de Stan. Ella sigue amandolo, y Will se encarga de hacer renacer el amor. Mientras tanto, Jack invita a Grace a su "Jack Talk", mostrando el lado oscuro de ella frente al auditorio gay.
El hecho de no saber de Stan por tanto tiempo, y recuperarlo repentinamente, hace pensar a Karen, pero ella persiste en ocultar sus sentimientos. Sin embargo, Will decide hacer de psicologo para que exteriorice sus sentimientos.
Jack, al no tener invitados para su programa, hace intervenir a Grace frente a un auditorio gay. Todo va bien, hasta que en la edicion del programa Grace menciona que ella odia a los gays, cuando la frase completa era que ella odia a los gays que no se aceptan a si mismos. Esto motiva que Grace sea el punto de odio entre la comunidad homosexual de New York.
Cuando Karen hace psicologia inversa con Will, este ultimo se da cuenta que ha perdido parte de su tiempo y que necesita un gran cambio en su vida, y deciden ayudarse mutuamente a superar este impasse. Pero Karen deja abierta la posibilidad de encontrarse con el amor de su vida: Stan.
Por ultimo, Jack acepta que Grace intervenga nuevamente en el programa para limpiar su imagen ante los gays.
Ha sido un episodio divertido, donde la satira a otros actores ha estado presente, como Tom Cruise y Russell Crowe. El personaje de Will adquiere un nuevo matiz, pues se da cuenta que se esta haciendo viejo y su vida no ha encontrado un rumbo.
Es un capitulo interesante, a seguir las diversas tramas de estos cuatro dispares amigos de New York.moreless
One of the better episodes.
Thoroughly enjoyed this episode due to its originality and surprising plots. Karen played the emotional wreck perfectly however it seems like now all Will does is whine about how he has nothing in his life. But Jack was hysterical as usual and this is a definite improvement over last year so far.
