Once again Grace meddles in things and makes it worse. Once again, Will feels sorry for himself because he has a crappy birthday. And in a weird twist, Karen all of a sudden remembers Stan's birthday. And he's dead.
Most of the time, Bobby Cannavale bugs me as an actor, but I like him as Will's boyfriend. The writing of his character is smart and cute, and the actor knows just how to deadpan deliver them. The highlights of the episode are the moments with him and Grace.
But the rest? Blah. Karen and Jack are so horribly selfish here, even more so than usual, and I just don't buy it. Over the years both these characters have shown decent emotional depth and I just don't believe they would ever ignore Will so blantently - not giving him a present, and then at the end of the party with a toast to Stan instead of Will. It just wouldn't happen. They are Will's best friends, no matter how selfish.
