Storyline

Iraqi War veteran Paul Ronald Duncan receives a euthanasia in the hospital - and Claire, on drugs, takes out her own loss on the family by denouncing the war in general but also them for letting their son serve. Later, after several days of drinking, she is fired and fights Ted for taking her keys, then later crashes her car by trying to avoid hitting a deer when going to visit the family's newest grave. David can't find a way to express his feelings so colorfully, so is still plagued by nightmares and daydreams 6 weeks after the funeral, mostly involving an orange-hooded figure resembling his attacker. When reports come out that a similarly-clad child-killer is loose, David becomes increasingly worried about the boys, troubling his family enough to have Keith suggest he leave until he's calmed down. He's too distracted to talk business yet, so Rico begins to plan ahead for himself at Vanessa's advice, finds an available spot, and learns she's a natural when it comes to consoling ...

Missing Nate (19 August 2007)
23 September 2009 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

Holly, the sister of the mutilated soldier Paul Ronald Duncan, provides a lethal injection to him and he commits suicide. David is completely disturbed with the death of Nate and seeing Jake wearing a red hood. Brenda has an incestuous dream with Billy while Ruth insists on raising Maya. Claire is totally drunk and height everyday in her job, and after an argument with Kirsten, she is fired. When she arrives home and sees Paul's mother trunk with a plate "Support Our Troops", she offends the family with a political speech. Rico unsuccessfully tries to have a business meeting with David and Vanessa convinces him to schedule a visit with a real state agent to buy another funeral house, the Weingarden Mortuary. Claire capsizes her car after visiting Nate's grave.

In this episode, the Fisher family misses Nate. It is terrible to see an unbalanced woman like Ruth, who raised a dysfunctional family without any structure with an addicted daughter and a gay son, claiming that she is able to raise Maya. Claire makes a magnificent political speech in a very inappropriate moment. David is absolutely messed up and confused. Brenda seems to have resolved her incestuous issues with Billy. Rico will probably follow a professional way of his own with Vanessa. My vote is nine.
