Episode #2.10
26 March 2012 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

This episode touches the subject of death and living life while you can. All of the story lines bring us to this conclusion.

One is about Lindsay and Mel finding letters written to her grandmother written by a woman she had a relationship during the war time. Including the last one where she shows regrets of not having been stronger back then because she always loved her and her life would have been different. A letter that her grandma never got to read because she died a couple of years before it was sent. I kind of wish Lindsay would get her grandma's wedding dress. She sure would have liked it

Similar is the story of Emmett and George. Nobody died in here but we do have George mentioning how different his life would have been if he would have as brave as Justin in his younger years. He also regrets not going to dance clubs earlier. And he was avoiding operas that he loves since he came out. But with Emmett's help he goes back to do something that he loves. and the lesson again is to do things you want while you can.

The guy found in the garbage and the death of captain Astro are what makes the characters of Michael, Ben, Brian and Justin explore their fear of death and leads to conversations on how anything can happen to each of us any day, and how we should just be living
