Default Tonight's Episode

I watched tonight's episode. I will have to say that they are really scraping the bottom of the barrel in terms of things to make a story about. Like most of the recent episodes, this one was pretty far-fetched. However, one thing that they still have not done is shown Blythe Danner in the role of Will's mother this season. This is something that I am really waiting for!

https://tvline.com/2020/02/07/will-a...sure-biphobia/

Thursday's episode featured Billie Lourd as Grace's niece (playing the granddaughter of her real-life late grandma Debbie Reynolds' character). In the episode, titled "Bi-Plane," Lourd's character introduces Grace and her friends to her boyfriend Trevor, who is bisexual. But Will doesn't believe in bisexuality. “Trevor, you’re not bisexual, you’re gay," Will says, telling Trevor that he's only choosing to be with a woman because of "societal pressure." The "Bi-Plane" episode "reads like a bullet point list of all the things bisexual people hear constantly—and the things that frequently keep bisexual people from coming out (and bisexuals are the least likely group to come out)," says Pilot Viruet. "Hearing over and over that bisexuality isn’t real, or that it’s just a stepping stone before inevitably identifying as gay or lesbian, can cause bisexuals to doubt their own feelings and desires. Such biphobia and bisexual erasure contributes to heightened mental health issues within the bisexual community, and plots like this don’t do anything to help. This bisexual erasure is especially hurtful when it comes from the queer community—which should, ostensibly, be the place we feel safest—which is why it’s doubly frustrating that Will & Grace is the series choosing to do this storyline."

This is all very interesting. I am going to have to say that I know very little about bisexuality, but I am more than willing to learn. On top of all of this, I will still hold to my original statement that I am still, very much, looking forward to seeing an episode that features out good friend Blythe!
