AVClub: “The Goodbyes” is a very strange episode of Grace And Frankie. There are some good parts in there, but I found myself wishing that it was all a little better executed, a little tighter. There’s an interesting thematic throughline of religion and spirituality. But nothing much comes of it, and some of the subplots just don’t play out all that believably. Jane Fonda gives a moving, convincing performance in the church. But I’m not all that convinced Grace would step into that church in the first place. It’s definitely meant to show just how torn up and conflicted she is about the situation with Phil, but I don’t think the writers really earned such a grand, literal come-to-Jesus moment with this storyline.
