"Nobody is ever what they seem to be." -Parker McKenna

This episode is like its name about turning points, developments in relationships, new beginnings.

Claire is going to on a hike with her schoolmates. She hangs with a guy she thinks he is different and interesting, but she learns he got to Stanford University with the help of this hike. She also befriends with Parker McKenna, who she thinks that she is a Gothic freak. Parker also learns Claire thinks she is a princess. And then says the quote top above.

Branda and Nate's trust issues come to light when her Aussie friend comes to town and Nate finds out they sleep in the same bed. But they both get over their fears and blocks.

Ruth is confused between Hiram and Nikolai. One is a elite guy and the other is a bit crazy, live-the-life-fully type.

Dave meets a new guy. Also, Fishers deal with Rico, who is been offered a job at Khroeners. Ultimately, Rico quits.

I love these thematic episodes of Six Feet Under. In my third watch, I'm loving this episode and the series more and more. 9.5/10.
