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.

The only episode to show short-term events leading up to the death in the opening teaser (a drug-addict was shown smoking cocaine several times before her overdose that same night). See more »

Goofs

When Nate is high at supper, having got David's ecstasy pill by mistake, he overflows his glass of wine. He takes a big sip so the glass is no more filled to the brim. In next take, the glass is mysteriously full to the brim again. See more »

Life Goes On
15 September 2006 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

When the B-movies actress Rebecca Leah Milford, artistically known as Becky Maxwell (Alexandra Holden), dies of overdose of cocaine, her boyfriend Brody Farrell (Shawn Hatosy) and the cast and crew of her last movie hire the funeral services with David Fischer, who is blind dating a fireman, and Federico Diaz. Meanwhile, Brenda Chenowith and Nate Fischer, and Claire and Gabe are having troubled relationships; David finds he has sexual disease and his mother Ruth (Frances Conroy) is trying to learn how to deal with the gay situation of her son.

"In the Game" is a reasonable show of "Six Feet Under", where actually there is no special situation with the Fischer family. The darkest side of this episode is the sick last situation, when Becky ashes are sniffed by her boy-friend and friends. My vote is seven.

Title (Brazil): "Entrando no Jogo" ("Entering in the Game")
