What I’m Watching: Grace and Frankie

Grace and Frankie: Season 3, Episode 7 “The Floor” (B+)

There’s one line that perfectly summarized this episode, uttered by Frankie: “I believe we’ve fallen and we can’t get up.” This wasn’t a particularly encouraging contribution to Grace and Frankie’s self-esteem, but at least they were in it together. Grace not wanting to call her daughters after they told her that she was getting old was fair, and the eventual solution of having Robert and Sol, two people who could relate, come to help them was very fitting. Frankie wanting to cancel the meeting was understandable, and they managed to find a way to make it work thanks to some clever angles, and their business might actually be in good shape. Robert coopted a brunch invitation to talk to a priest about whether he was going to hell, and I liked the former priest’s explanation that heaven or hell can be how you’re remembered since that seems relatively universal in a lot of ways. After staying way too long on Bud’s couch, Coyote made very quick progress with a bit of help from Mallory and some negativity and discouragement from Brianna. A tiny house feels right for Coyote, and it was sweet to see Bud react initially with longing for his brother to stay before making sure that he didn’t go back on his impulse decision, even if he can only fit a personal pizza in his new tiny house. I enjoyed learning that Brianna would be interested in watching a TV show where the tiny house hunters get hunted.
