At a corporate-funded boat-party he denounces, Matthew Heath Collins has too much to drink, drops his latest beverage over the side of the deck, and in attempting to retrieve it falls underwater and is cut by the propeller. His widow Catherine first contacts Fisher & Sons for a closed-casket funeral without bodily repairs, then chooses to switch to Kroehner's instead, forcing David and Nate to think of a way to set a cheap, but reasonable, price to convince her to switch back. Ruth's sister Sarah comes to visit upon receiving her message after years of feuding, angering Ruth once again at the memory of how her friend slept with Nate as a teenager and she did nothing to help with taking care of their grandmother. So she's not very supportive that Sarah informs Claire she's a natural artist. David continues dating Ben but doesn't feel anything for him - he chooses not to invite him to Nate and Brenda's engagement dinner with the family, Sarah, and Nikolai, where the dinner's ...

Did You Know?


Nate was deflowered by Fiona Kleinschmidt. Although when that happened, Nate was 15 and Fiona 32, the given year of Fiona's birth is 1956, and Nate's 1965, and that makes Fiona 9 years older than Nate instead of 17. In Episode 6, Season 2 is first mentioned that 32 year old woman that deflowered Nate. Nate's birth year is mentioned repeatedly, and Fiona's birth year is mentioned in Episode 6, Season 5.

Regret and Anger
14 October 2006 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

While in a party in a boat, the completely drunken Matthew Heath Collins falls overboard and dies. The widow Catherine Collins bargains with David and Nate and decides to hire the funeral services of Unger, which belongs to Kroehner group. David reduces the price even more to get the client. Meanwhile, Aunt Sarah visits the Fisher family after the invitation of her sister Ruth as part of her new "blueprint" of her life. David is dating the public defender Benjamin Cooper, but he misses Keith. Nate and Brenda join the whole family in an engagement dinner. Mitzi Dalton Huntley unsuccessfully tries to seduce Nate and David to sell their business to Kroehner. Rico is facing infiltration problem in his new house. Brenda has an unusual behavior along the shiatsu session with her client. Before the funeral service, Catherine shows her anger against her former husband.

"In Place of Anger" is an episode where deep wounds are disclosed, showing regret, resentment and anger. We see the hateful feelings of Catherine for Matthew; the resentment of Ruth for Sarah; and the unfaithful behavior of Brenda, releasing the tension of her client in an unprofessional way. David definitely is in deep love for Keith. My vote is nine.

Title (Brazil): "Raiva" ("Anger")
