Will & Grace returned last week to record rating and rave reviews. Now the fab foursome are back this week with the second episode of the new season, and this time Will and Jack are trying to come to terms with a new realization: They are old enough to be daddies.
This week’s installment is titled “Who’s Your Daddy?” and it features Tony award winner Ben Platt, as a young twink that Will tries to woo.
In a new clip from the episode, Jack is trying to chase his youth, so he takes a trip to Karen’s bathroom where she offers “Scrotox” (“It’s like botox, but for the boys!”), but he decides to slip into a body compression suit of hers, to give the illusion of a slimmer figure.
The body suit is made of metal and when there are magnets involved (to help with Jack’s neck), viewers get a chance to witness Sean Hayes’ signature physical humor.
“So what, they’re young and hot, and we’re old and not! We need this,” Jack tells Will after he wonders if it’s creepy going after younger guys.
According to Just Jared, the other half of the fab foursome, Grace and Karen, “experience a crisis that reveals Grace’s true feelings about Karen.” At the Tribeca TV Festival co-creator Max Mutchnick revealed that this episode would see Karen and Grace in a shower situation that was based on a classic scene from The Lucy Show.

Will & Grace airs Thursdays at 9/8c on NBC.
