Episode cast overview, first billed only:
Gary Brennan ...
Ryan Kelly ...
Darren / Shanda Leer


Gloom all around. Brian is told by the specialist the lump which Shane, a doctor, found during sex is probably cancer, but if it isn't the necessary operation to make sure still costs him one testicle; even two hot studs Justin had waiting for him can't revive his normal sexual appetite. Vic's funeral is a depressing event, nearly everyone comes. Hunter's total lack of respect for the mourning is only one of his nasty sides, he's caught smoking pot and fighting; good boy Mikey looses confidence and his patience, Ben calms his down and insists Hunter has too much to process. Ted felt festive about his addiction recovery and was totally into his sponsor Blake Wyzecki as sex partner again, but then gets dumped as gently as possible... Written by KGF Vissers

Mortality comes a-knockin
12 January 2008 | by (Long Island, New York) – See all my reviews

Episode 407 "Sometimes you feel like a nut, sometimes you don't." ~Brian

Every season seems to come with its share of bad episodes, so when are they coming this season? Certainly not with the amazingly solid episode 407, an episode about mortality, death, new beginnings, and secrets. Vic's funeral goes surprisingly smooth, but the transition for Debbie is a very rocky one. The final few minutes in which she totally loses control were amazing, and brining back 'Shanda Leer' seemed like a wise move to me. Brian being diagnosed with testicular cancer was incredibly unexpected, and I really think that this has given the show a great step in a new direction. Who would have ever thought that the unstoppable Brian Kinney could be stopped? I cried all sorts of times in this episode, include moments with Blake and Ted and especially their poetic conversation in the falling snow, which is one of the series' most perfect moments. Justin's concern for Brian was touching. Overall just another perfect episode, amazing in every way, and yet another way for Sharon Gless to shine brightly with her skill as an actress.
