Grace and Frankie Season 7 Recap
At the end of Season 6, Grace’s new beau, Nick, was arrested. Grace and Frankie had hidden away a portion of Nick’s illegally acquired money. The start of Season 7 finds Grace and Frankie back at the beach house where the show started; along with Robert and Sol, their ex-husbands, who are now homeless. What’s more, the FBI is snooping around searching for the remainder of Nick’s ill-begotten funds; the money that Grace and Frankie have stolen.
The rest of the season should be focused on the fallout from Nick’s arrest, with Grace and Frankie trying to launder the money so they can use it. Additionally, there are hints that Nick may be released from prison, which puts a strain on the relationship he has with Frankie.
The show also covers the lives of Grace and Frankie’s children and grandchildren, who each have their own concerns and struggles. These are primarily Bud and Coyote, Grace and Frankie’s adoptive children, and Brianna and Mallory, children from Grace’s marriage to Robert.
