New Will City is the 1st episode of the third season and the 47th episode overall. The story continues three months after the events of Ben? Her? where Will goes to the Caribbean.

Will returns from his vacation and finds that his two best friends have formed a special bond. Karen starts feeling stomach pains after her maid Rosario gets arrested.

Synopsis Edit

Torn between two lovers Edit

Will finally returns home from his unfortunate escape at the Caribbean with clients Karen and Stan to help out with Grace's problem about dating Josh and Ben. Will, however, is surprised to see that Grace has gotten much closer to Jack who lives across the hall, even taking Jack's advice over his. Will starts to feel resentful that he is being replaced. After Grace reassures him that their friendship is like a scar ("ugly but permanent"), Will reiterates his advice that Grace should choose Josh over Ben. However, Jack comes in and tells them that Josh is actually gay.

Pangs of guilt Edit

Karen, who is smuggling black pearls into the country, returns from the Caribbean when she realizes that she is going to be arrested by customs security. While waiting in line, Karen lets her maid Rosario hold her bag, effectively letting her get arrested instead as she makes her escape.

The next day, Karen tells Grace that she has been feeling stomach pains ever since her return. Grace quickly notices that Karen's pains are triggered when Rosario's name is mentioned and notes that it is because of unconscious guilt from having her maid take the blame and arrested. Karen is then forced to bail Rosario out of a jail in Queens.
