  • When Grace accompanies Leo to brunch with some "friends", she doesn't realize that he's tricked her and instead introduced her to his real parents – and she soon regrets her earlier salty dialogue and suggestive attitude. Elsewhere, Jack is again confronted by Zandra – his gruff acting teacher – when he tries to showcase his meager talent in a class while a willing Will joins Karen in subjecting to a Botox facial injection.moreless
