4. Both Will and Grace blamed themselves for Julie’s death. How were they at fault, if at all?

Margaret Chind In my eyes it is a guilt thing about unfinished business. Grace was left without chances to make things right. Where Will feels like he wasn't strong enough or might have made a wrong choice. Either way, events happened as they were meant to. Julie was loved by Will, and knew in her own way that Grace loved her. She had a daughter after several attempts and failures. Her life had been made complete. By allowing Will to come to love Grace and protect his daughter he was able to continuing giving to Julie. By Grace raising Julie's daughter she was able to live everyday in a gift of continued love to Julie.

Amy From a medical standpoint, there was nothing Will could have done at that point to help Julie's bleeding. They didn't have the medications or monitoring we have now for postpartum hemorrhage. Many women bled to death with childbirth. That was part of life and a risk every woman knew she had to take. The flooding river was something that no one had control over.
Grace did nothing to cause Julie's death. Her only fault was she loved too much. She did nothing to cause Julie's pregnancy. Every person has their own choices, Will and Julie made right by their choices. I'm glad Grace married Will to able to care for Copper, and they eventually found their own love for each other.
