The first taste of the seventh and final season of Grace and Frankie has finally arrived, and longtime fans are preparing themselves to say goodbye to the beloved titular characters. Frankie Bergstein (Lily Tomlin) and Grace Hanson (Jane Fonda) have evolved considerably since their husbands first left them for each other in Season 1. Their respective families have also gone through a lot throughout the show's six-year run.
Viewers have felt connected to Frankie's two adoptive sons, Coyote (Ethan Embry) and Bud Bergstein (Baron Vaughn). While Bud has almost always had his life in order, Coyote has struggled with addiction, and it hasn't been easy for him to find steady work.
In the seventh season, things are finally looking up for Coyote — he is looking to move on from his tiny house to buy a regular-size residence, and he is in a serious relationship with his girlfriend, Jessica Gibson (Christine Woods).
Read on to find out more about the character who stole Coyote's heart, and to learn where else you've seen actress Christine Woods before.
Coyote's girlfriend, Jessica, previously dated another character in 'Grace and Frankie.'
After his emotional breakup with Nadia (Megan Fergusson) and his longstanding will-they-won't-they flirtationship with Mallory Hanson (Brooklyn Decker), Coyote reconnected with Bud's ex-girlfriend from college, Jessica, in Season 6.
In the penultimate season, Jessica commissioned a portrait of herself from Frankie. Unsurprisingly, Frankie ended up going a bit above and beyond with the size of the painting, and Jessica needed help getting it to her house.
Coyote decided to help his brother's ex, and the two reminisced about Frankie and the past. Though they later decided not to pursue anything romantically because of Bud, Jessica and Coyote could not deny their connection.
By the time Season 7 begins, Coyote and Jessica are in a very serious relationship. They want to take the next step in their romance by getting a house together, but they don't have enough money for the down payment.
Coyote then decides to sell a valuable dollar coin he's had since he was a child. While it remains to be seen how things will conclude for Coyote and Jessica on the show, it seems like these two are in it for the long haul.
