Plot Synopsis

A whacked-out Grace is wracked with guilt over the death of a high school classmate whom she once tormented, so she drags Will along to the funeral — and gets the surprise of her life — while Will offers a sympathetic shoulder to a handsome grieving relative. Elsewhere, an ecstatic Jack asks Karen to accompany him when he is nominated for a MAC award for lower Manhattan non-transgender equity waiver gay cabaret.
