A guide to parents with gay children recommends accepting them by welcoming their lovers for a family meal, so Ruth prepares to invite Brenda, Gabe, and Nikolai before learning that Keith is no longer part of David's life. David and Nate both get bad news on their MRI's: David has gonorrhea and Nate learns that his brain condition is indeed AVM, potentially (but not necessarily) fatal, but upon learning there appears to be no effective solution for curing it, leaves the doctor angrily with no intention of learning anything more about it. He tries harder than usual to stay fit and healthy by taking an aspirin a day...but ends up taking one of David's ecstasy tablets instead, making Ruth's dinner an interesting one.

God have mercy. God have mercy. God have mercy.
19 January 2007 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This struck me as one of the most entertaining episodes of Six Feet Under, right from the slasher movie beginning followed by the event which actually provided business for the Fishers (in a rather parsimonious way from the late actress's colleagues).

Nicolai saying grace at the dining table in his heartfelt way was funny and moving, and this was followed by Nate's even more hilarious ecstasy trip.

A great start to the second series of Six Feet Under. It was the only show with a soap opera format that I can really say I liked, with its characterisation and its postmodern supernatural elements.
