Thinky thoughts about Grace & Frankie
Yes, we already have a gay romance with Robert and Sol (I’d argue that Sol is bi even though they’ve never mentioned it, but that’s a different post.) But we never saw them fall in love. We heard about it briefly and saw a little glimpse of their earlier lives in flashbacks, but we were very much told they fell in love and now here it is. Whereas with Grace and Frankie, what if we’re actually seeing them slowly fall in love? And they don’t quite know what it is just yet because they don’t really have a frame of reference for it. They tried to make relationships work with other people… Frankie’s was even with someone she genuinely loved (much like Sol genuinely loved her) but they still find themselves coming back to each other.
I would love so much if next season, we get continued exploration of Grace and Frankie’s relationship and then there’s an episode that has tons of flashbacks of Robert and Sol falling in love and how it very much parallels what’s currently happening with the ladies. And then the finale is them finally acknowledging their feelings for what they are and where do they go from here?
And then it’s renewed for a 5th season where they can explore that. (And at some point, Dolly can officiate their wedding lol)
