Storyline

Nate and Brenda's daughter Willa is born, but 2 months early and at only 2 lb. 4 oz., requiring a prolonged hospital stay. Nate is convinced she won't make it and insists that he can't accept it if she does and is "damaged", shaking Brenda's own confidence. Rico encourages David to sell the funeral home but instead he and Keith buy out Rico's 25% so he can start his own. David agrees to temporarily leave home, and goes to the funeral home. There he's confronted by Nathaniel about considering leaving the business and for his gayness, and is forced to fight his mysterious attacker back, then finally sees his face. Maya is returned to Brenda and Ruth has to face her own problems, until Maggie reveals Nate did see her, happily, as Brenda insisted.

Trivia

Although her character Brenda gives birth at the beginning of the episode, Rachel Griffiths was still, in reality, 8 and a half months pregnant with her own child. To disguise this fact, the costume and prop department had to devise numerous ways to hide her belly. These included dressing Griffiths in outfits with big shawls or capes, or having her hold a large purse between her body and the camera. One of the concerns when filming Brenda giving birth to Willa was that Griffiths would actually go into labor for real. Griffiths gave birth to her second daughter 3 days later. See more »

Goofs

In one scene, Ruth finds Maya's stuffed monkey lodged between the refrigerator and the wall in the kitchen, but in all previous shots of the fridge (after Maya has left) the monkey isn't there. See more »

Crazy Credits

In every episode, the end credits appear in white lettering over black. This is the only episode in which the end credits are in black lettering over white. This is also the only episode after the second season which features rolling credits as opposed to title cards, and the only episode in which all of the end credits are in scroll (seasons one and two feature a mix of cards, followed by a scroll).

Speechless
9 February 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Speechless would sum it up for me. This was the best ending to an amazing series. It will put you through a whirlwind of emotions. My husband and I just sat there in a trance. We were so excited to see the last episode but yet sad at the same time. We have watched the series from the beginning and you start to feel like you are a part of the Fisher family. We felt like we could relate to so many of the episodes. This last one though had the perfect ending. Just thinking about it makes me teary eyed. When it was all over with we looked at each other and said "now what?" It was like saying goodbye to your foster family. For those of you who haven't seen it...be prepared to be left speechless. Oh and don't forget the tissues, you will probably need them.
