Storyline

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

Episode #4.7
9 May 2012 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

In this episode we continue to think of death. It is very sad to see Debbie struggle while trying to get through her brother's death. The whole Christmas party was breaking my heart. It was very sweet of everyone to come to do it with her.

Another character struggling was Ted. But he is on the way to make it better. His conversations with Blake were beautiful in this episode. I also loved his conversations with Emmett. The one when Emmett came to tell that he read the letter and the one in the Christmas party. It is nice to see the ice starting to break between them.

We see the other characters dealing with the idea of death as well. Hunter being afraid of his own to come after he for the first time witnessed another positive man die. Brian thinking of how it is better to die young before he goes for his operation and Michael being afraid to be alone when Ben dies.

All in all a very sad episode that also makes one think
