Grace and Frankie came back for a fourth season that turned out to be a bit more dramatic than before, but it also led to three great moments.

Finding out that their husbands are not just work partners, but have also been romantically involved for the last 20 years, two women with an already strained relationship try to cope with the circumstances together. Grace Hansen, played by Jane Fonda, moved in with Frankie Bergstein, played by Lily Tomlin, while their ex-husbands, Robert (Martin Sheen) and Sol (Sam Waterston) move in together and end up getting married. Many, many hijinks ensue between the two pairs of opposites and their kids, as well as the vibrator business that Frankie and Grace started, while dealing with getting older. Season 4 of hit Netflix show Grace and Frankie picks up six months after the end of the last season, and the plot kept going without us.

Frankie moved to Santa Fe with Jacob, and Grace let her manicurist move into Frankie’s studio. Nick (Peter Gallagher), still handsome and arrogant, is still in the picture — and is surprisingly not terrible once you get to know him. Sol and Robert are still getting arrested for queer causes, and Robert is still working with the gay theater group. They’re also still trying to work out the kinks in their relationship that came from Sol sleeping with Frankie just before he and Robert got married.

Season 4 of this show became much more drama than comedy, and ends in a very surprising place.

I’m going to talk about the parts of this season that I thought we were the most meaningful  —and the most Grace and Frankie-ish. There will be spoilers ahead, because I cannot talk about the season without, you know, talking about the season. Read ahead at your own risk!
