Forbidden Fruit is the 12th episode of the eighth season and 182nd overall.


Grace is concerned and confused when Will so adamantly insists that she turn down her job offer from his former boss Margot, who has asked Grace to redecorate the law firm. When she takes the job after telling Will that she wouldn't, Grace learns some startling news that he has been hiding from her. Meanwhile, Jack discovers Karen's softer side when he finally sees what's inside the "forbidden room" at the Walker mansion.





  • Will quit the Coalition for Justice and returned to Doucette and Stein without telling anyone.
  • Karen's forbidden room is a nursery she built when she thought she was pregnant in Season 1's "The Unsinkable Mommy Adler".
