Default ‘Will & Grace:’ Marriage is ‘Weird Thing’ Invented by Straight Men to ‘Own Women’

With less than a week until the midterm elections, NBC’s Will & Grace saw fit to poke fun at First Lady Melania Trump, insinuating she’s being held prisoner in the basement of the White House and trying to “tunnel her way out with the heel of her Jimmy Choo.” They also had gay character Jack (Sean Hayes) get a dig in at marriage, stating that it’s “just some weird thing straight guys came up with as a way to own a woman,” adding, “we got gay marriage, but let’s make marriage gay!”

Jack is engaged to be married to his male love interest and is at a gay bar with best friends Karen (Megan Mullally) and Will (Eric McCormack), celebrating with an engagement brunch. When the bill arrives, Karen and Will argue over who should pay it, which leads to Will’s dig at Melania.

Although he didn’t name names, given that Karen is the show’s conservative caricature, and that the media love to both vilify the first lady and fantasize that she hates her husband and life in politics, it’s obvious who Will was referring to.

Both this thread and the one right below it deal with the episode that was on this past Thursday. Right below that one is one started by me that also pertains to that episode. You see, the thing about that episode that sticks out in my mind is the fact that the marriage between Will's widowed mother and Grace's widowed father was mentioned for the second time this season. The thing that took me by surprise is that I did not know that they were married until this season. I thought that their time sleeping together in Will's apartment last season was just a one time thing. I would watch that episode again to try to make some sense out of it, but last season is down from Hulu. I would still be very interested in hearing from anyone who knows what part of the puzzle I am missing.
