Gulf War First-class Private Victor Wayne Kovich finally passes away after years of suffering lung disease, and Nate must persuade Daivd and the man's angry brother that he should receive a military-honoring burial as he wished. Claire prepares for the PSAT test she doesn't care about and wonders how much better her life will turn out compared to others'. Ruth takes a job at Nikolai's shop and invites Hiram to join them for a meal (prepared by him). Rico, angry that Nate plans to take a weekend trip with Brenda to the desert, professes the Fishers' lack of appreciation to him just before getting a call from Gilardi. As for Nate's plans, just as they're accepted grudgingly by Rico and David, a turn of events might throw them. Written by

Nate: You are letting him manipulate you.
Brenda: You don't know him. You don't know what he's doing.
Nate: Well I know he didn't like me, and I have a feeling he doesn't like any man in your life, am I right?
