Grace would be coming to town with her harmless and vacuous second husband Jack Patterson (George Hamilton) after extensive cosmetic facial surgery (her new face and lips like "Carly Simon") for Brianna’s 40th birthday. After the party completely falls apart, Grace and Frankie argue about a samovar that is now their friend Babe’s urn, as well as Grace’s inability to go to her funeral because she couldn’t face Robert. The ladies would realize that Babe left the samovar to both of them because she knew how much they meant to each other. This provides the reality check Grace and Frankie need; they make amends and vow their friendship to each other. Frankie is overjoyed and ready to go back to their beach house ... and then Grace sheepishly tells her that she had married Nick the night before.
