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. Claire takes up photography (of Ted) again and gets a job offer at a New York photo production company, but offers to be there for Ruth until she insists she go and unfreezes her account. Brenda gets a surprise visit from Nate, who finally shows... Written by brainybrailler@comcast.net

Trivia

For a scene such as the one where Claire listens to Ted leaving messages, an assistant director would usually be employed to stand off-screen and read for the on-screen actor to react to. Chris Messina, who plays Ted, came on set and read so that his chemistry Lauren Ambrose would translate into the scene. 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).

Worth Watching the Entire Series, Just for this Episode
12 March 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Much has already been stated about this episode, and having just completed it I feel compelled to make my first post on IMDb.

Simply put, this is a marvel of cinema. I enjoyed the series as a whole, but even those parts that did not so completely capture my interest were validated by this finale.

I can honestly say that I have never seen the like. Finales as a whole tend to be either obvious or lacking despite being perhaps the most important of all episodes in a given series.

I would just like to encourage anyone who hasn't seen this show to watch it from start to finish even if they aren't mesmerized by it just to fully understand and absorb this incredible conclusion.

I can't speak highly enough of it, this is a masterpiece.
