What I’m Watching: Will and Grace

Will and Grace: Season 10, Episode 3 “Tex and the City” (B-)

The first two episodes of this season may not have been overtly political, but this one definitely returns right to that in a huge way. Of course Karen would want to sponsor a part of the wall to help make sure to keep illegal immigrants out of the country, and she would have to compete, mysteriously, with walking contradiction Beverley Leslie, whose portrayer Leslie Jordan is keeping himself busy on the far less funny “The Cool Kids,” which just earned itself a full-season pickup from FOX. Encountering an El Salvadoran woman arrested for trying to cross the border who reminded her of Rosario was a bit of a stretch, but it’s hardly one that’s unfamiliar on this show. The same goes for Jack, who went to Texas with Will to support his grandson Skip but then found himself being the one trying to stifling the expression of his spirit and his sexuality. His on-microphone speech was somewhat entertaining, and I suppose it’s fun to see the man grow. Will had his own regrets to deal with that resulted in a well-timed imitation of Freddie Mercury that’s sure not to be quite as impressive as that done by Rami Malek in the upcoming film “Bohemian Rhapsody.” Back in New York, both Grace and Noah were obsessed with the window closing for them to have sex, and naturally it would be something as simple as Grace casually blurting out that she had slept with Noah’s sandwich guy that would cause him to doubt whether this romance - something that’s going to be good for both of them - was really the right route.
