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.

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).

Life Goes On, Until It Ends
19 August 2007 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

Brenda has troubles in the delivery of the premature Willa in the Cedars-Sinai Hospital. Claire is feeling lost, not sure whether she is not good to be an artist. She is invited by a New York City agency to work as assistant photographer. Keith uses his savings to buy Rico's share in the funeral house. Ruth moves to Sarah's place. David defeats his fears and ghosts and recovers his sanity. Claire moves to New York, while envisions the fate of each character.

Everything comes to an end, including this magnificent show. It is amazing how wonderful an unpleasant theme like death can be brought to audiences, supported by credible, realistic human stories and outstanding performances. I am certainly going to miss this show, one of the best ever produced by television. The conclusion, disclosing the death of each character, was unique and very touching. Congratulations to all the people involved in bringing this awesome series to my home. My vote is ten.

Title (Brazil): "Todos a Espera" ("Everybody Waiting")
