A major character has returned to Will & Grace
A major character from the original series has returned to Will & Grace.
The third episode of the revival, which aired last night in the US, dealt with a hang-over from the orignal show – Grace’s ex-husband Leo.
The show’s original ending saw Grace fall out with Will and re-marry Leo, flashing forward to a future where the pair were married with a teenage daughter.
However, the revival flushed most of the divisive ending down the pan, confirming that a childless Grace had divorced Leo for a second time and moved back in with Will.
Last night’s episode dealt with the fall-out from the changes, with actor Harry Connick, Jr. returning to the show as Leo.
In the episode, Leo is accidentally brought back into Grace’s life during a breast cancer scare, as he is still listed as her emergency contact.
In the new timeline, a bitter Leo needles Grace over her “weird” friendship with Will, blaming them for their marriages not working out.
He tells her: “You never shared anything with me. You always ran to Will.
“Wasn’t that the problem with our marriage?
“You could never be in a relationship with me, because you’re always gonna have this weird thing with Will.”
