Jack is sick with the flu and Karen offers him to stay at her mansion so she can take of him. When he is in Karen's house he sees a whole new part of it and he finds something that Karen calls "the forbidden room". Karen doesn't tell Jack what is in the room. Jack tries to figure out what could be behind the locked door. Grace meets Margot at the coffee house and she offers her a job to design the law firm. Grace accepts the offer although she just accepted another offer from a retirement home.

Jack: I've got the Evian flu! [pause] I shared a bottle of water with a stranger at the gym. Will: That's my Grace. You're a good person. Just like Jake Gyllenhaal. I don't know, sometimes when I look at my screen saver, I think... 'Yeah, you're thinking about me, too.' Grace: You know, I used to feel that way about Sarah Jessica Parker. But then, we shared an elevator ride together and she poked me in the boob with an umbrella and didn't apologize. Will: Were you trying to hug her? Grace: That's not important.


- This is Margot's first appearance since the season 7 episode "Partners".

- Much like Megan Mullally, "Karen Walker" doesn't have any children of her own. We learn that Karen built this "forbidden room" when she thought she was pregnant in the season 1 episode "The Unsinkable Mommy Adler." However, it turned out to be a false alarm.

- After less than a year doing charity work, Will quits his job with the Coalition for Justice and returns to Doucette & Stein.
