22 years and 246 episodes later, the hit sitcom at NBC will draw the curtains of their audience. But it’s not the first time that the series says goodbye to its viewers.
After eight years, in 2006, the show came to an end with two young children going to school, Will Truman (Eric McCormack) and Grace Adler (Debra Messing). And we figured all was over before they returned after a ten-year break and picked up the New York lawyers and glamorous designer adventures.
End Of Will & Grace
‘Will & Grace’ 2.0’s has seen the odd quadrant of Will, Grace, Jack (Sean Hayes) and Karen (Megan Mullally) teasing us with their tug-of-war again in the last three years. But it had to end somewhere as well, and eventually, “somewhere” is right now as we speak. The show made goodbye to a quick, unemotional finish, and that was the beauty of the series.
No Happy Ending
Most shows end with an important note or a dramatic, happy ending. But not ‘Will & Grace’ And this is what this episode needs to appreciate.
Grace will get a baby, and the scene begins with Jack asking Will, How crazy it is that both of you have babies! Will and Grace are no pair and nothing but natural. We also leave their city of dreams, where they were rising, developing, working, and thriving and now move to the quietest suburbs for a simpler, household life.
Jack’s Broadway Appearance
So Jack receives good news about his Broadway debut, which he always dreamt about but never saw. On the other hand, Karen is contemplating returning to her ex-husband. Grace wanted to trigger labor after a few false alarms by going up the steps of the Statue of Liberty.
When they all stand in the big city, it teaches you more than it does. Although Grace eventually wants to say goodbye to the town (in terms of the audience), Will thinks this is just the beginning. It is also the start for Jack and Karen, as Jack finally gets his piece from the proverbial sky, and Karen gets to be all over again with her friend.
Milestones Of Life
You should expect dramatic, emotional, or surprising moments for a series finale, especially in a show of this width. But there is none! Instead, it demonstrates the milestones of each life of the four characters and is not, to be honest, shocking. You should put the tissues away and enjoy the pleasure of taking you one last time through their craziness and laughter.
Demonstrations Of LGBTQ Rights
By any interpretation of ‘Will & Grace’ was revolutionary. It was one of the few shows of its time that best discussed LGBTQ rights. While they were a homosexual man and Grace was a straight woman, they agreed to keep up their friendship and to make it a family relationship. Yeah, the concept is definitely intense and painful, but that did not motivate the writers to make the final into a tearjerker, making it an unbelievable end but also letting us want more.
The ‘Will and Grace’ series final was broadcast on NBC on Thursday, April 23, 2020, so you can hope that it will soon be on your favorite web site, and you can have your farewell again.
