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

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 »

After watching the last episode, I can see why it is so highly referred and praised. What made this such a great show was not the fact that it was about death and living in a funeral home, but how it was about life and the lives of the people living in that funeral home. The character's are extremely believable and compelling, the situations that they're put through are moving and the way they chose to end this series was beautiful. It is truly within the last 5-6 minutes that everything comes to fruition. Life moves on before Everything Comes To an End. To me, this is why it's such a excellent series.

One more thing...If you are in no way moved by the last bit of this series after watching it as a whole, then there's something wrong with you. Enjoy
