Will & Grace is one of the latest TV shows enjoying a modern revival, having made its return to NBC on Thursday, September 28, 11 years after it originally went off the air. We already knew that the聽reboot would pretend the finale never happened, and while some fans might have been apprehensive about how they would handle it, the premiere proved we had nothing to worry about. Fair warning, there are some minor spoilers ahead!

As a quick refresher, the OG series finale ended by jumping 20 years ahead. Will (Eric McCormack) and Grace (Debra Messing) were estranged, but reunited while dropping off their respective children (who would end up marrying each other) at college.

In the reboot, Will, Grace, Jack (Sean Hayes), and Karen (Megan Mullally) are seen playing a board game like nothing ever happened. Karen isn鈥檛 exactly in on the game, though 鈥 she鈥檚 staring off in a trance-like daze, so Jack wakes her up by shaking her pill bottle. (Classic.) She comes to, startled, asking 鈥淲ho won the election?!鈥 鈥 then says she had the craziest dream in which Grace was married to a Jewish doctor (Leo) and that Will was with a man in uniform (Vince).

鈥淲ell, we were,鈥 Will replies, 鈥渂ut we鈥檙e single now.鈥 Karen then asks what happened to the kids they had who grew up to marry each other, but Will says that never happened. Karen replies, 鈥淥h, what a relief. Nobody wants to see you two raise kids.鈥 Extra classic!

In case that鈥檚 not clear enough, Jack goes all in on the joke, breaking the fourth wall by turning to the camera, winking, and saying, 鈥淕ot it?鈥

Got it!

Despite this early writing-out of Will鈥檚 ex-boyfriend Vince (Bobby Cannavale) and Grace鈥檚 ex-husband Leo (Harry Connick Jr.), we know from on-set photos that both willreturn 鈥 and based on how the premiere played out, we鈥檙e confident it鈥檒l be handled expertly (and hilariously).
