Tracking and Missing Lisa
10 November 2006 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

In a robbery of a convenience store, the owner Dorothy Su is shot in the forehead and immediately dies. While working in an electrical post, there is an earthquake and Edward Tully falls over the wires and is electrocuted. While running on a belt in a health club, David Raymond Monroe has a fulminating heart attack. Meanwhile, Lisa is missing while traveling to Santa Cruz and a freak-out Nate calls David in the middle of the night. In the morning, while having breakfast with David, Nate and Claire, Ruth keeps an optimistic opinion, denying any possibility of a tragic event that might have happened with Lisa. Rico goes with Vanessa to the doctor, and she cuts the medication Vanessa is using, since she is clinically depressed. Brenda moves to a cheap apartment, and her mother calls her to dump the ashes of her father. Russell does not give up on a disappointed Claire, and later she has a serious altercation with Olivier, accusing him of being manipulative and violating of the regulation of the school. After calling the sheriff's department and the highway patrol, the car of Lisa is found, Nate goes to a motel nearby the place where the car was found, and David and Claire join their brother to comfort him. Claire finds that she is pregnant. Angelica goes to the mall with Vanessa and buys a television and a refrigerator with Rico's credit card, upsetting him.

In this episode there are so many new situations that it is impossible to describe all of them. The separation of David and Keith, and the meeting of Ruth and George Sibley may give new destinies to these characters. The pregnancy of Claire may mess up her fragile structure. The relationship of Rico and Vanessa may be affected by the interference of Angelica. My vote is ten.

Title (Brazil): "A Morte Faz Hora Extra" ("Death Works Overtime")
