Grace, Replaced is the eighteenth episode of the first season.
When Grace's job forces her to work overtime, Will feels utterly neglected. He seeks solace in the company of a new neighbor, Val, a recent divorcee who matches Grace quirk for quirk. At first, Grace seems oblivious to their camaraderie until Karen warns her of impending danger. Meanwhile, Jack is annoyed that he has to perform community service for slapping a meter maid, but he's even more horrified at the uniform he has to wear.
