Storyline

David has recovered physically from his carjacking but refuses to tell his family what really happened to him. At the funeral home, he has the case of Robert Meinhardt who he thought was a suicide but then learns he was shot in the head by burglars. David has a panic attack and has to call 911. George and Ruth attend an academic receptionist where she overhears a conversation and learns of George's philandering ways. It's David's birthday and Ruth has organized a dinner to celebrate the occasion. In the kitchen she lets slip to Vanessa that Sophie visited Rico. She also embarrasses George by lashing out at him. Nate gets a new job taking care of dogs in a canine retreat and is at peace with himself. Joe has found a house for he and Brenda but she drops in on Nate, not sure she can live a simple life with Joe. Written by garykmcd

How Difficult is to Have a Simple and Happy Little Life
18 November 2006 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

During a robbery in his home, Robert Carl Meinhardt is tied and executed with a shot in his head. David is completely traumatized, lies to his family and tells that he was carjacked only. Joe finds a new big house to live with Brenda. Ruth goes to a dinner party with George and hears some comments of one ex-girlfriend of George, becoming upset and in a bad mood. On the birthday party of David, Ruth makes a comment with Vanessa about Sophia, and Rico tells that he is helping the outgoing young mother, based on the request of charity of their priest. David gets an upscale watch from Keith, and later he has a panic attack. He discloses to Claire the truth about the torture he was submitted, and Claire asks Nate to work with and give support to David. Brenda visits Nate telling that she is afraid of having a simple and happy little life with Joe, and they kiss each other.

In "Terror Starts at Home", the annoying Ruth is terrible, and I am sure she will kill her marriage with George. This character is absolutely stressed and quite deranged. Nate shows his brotherhood love and stays with David, in spite of his new job in the camp for dogs. Claire seems to be closer to Edie; Brenda is totally insecure; Rico will probably mess his marriage; and David is completely unstable. My vote is seven.

Title (Brazil): "O Terror Bate à Porta" ("Terror Knocks the Door")
