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.

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 »

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")
