Will's father George returns, harboring a spicy secret, in this intrigue-filled episode. As if sitting through 'Seussical' on a date with a Frankenstein lookalike weren't rough enough, Grace spies George at the theater--getting very cozy with a woman who isn't Will's mother. After she spills to Will, he goes into denial, refusing to deal with this revelation. But an explosion comes anyway when George's giggly mistress is indiscreet. Meanwhile, Karen and Jack plot to nail Stan, who's also suspected of adultery.
The show takes place in New York City and focuses on Will Truman, a gay man and lawyer, and his best friend Grace Adler, a Jewish woman who runs her own interior design firm.
Also featured are their friends Karen Walker, a rich socialite, and Jack McFarland, a struggling actor/singer/dancer who also has had brief careers as an acting teacher, back-up dancer, cater-waiter, talk-show host and student nurse.
