Nate dreads having to go to Idaho to visit Lisa's family and attend a service they have arranged. He and Brenda have reconciled and she convinces him that going is the right thing to do. He asks her come along. The visit goes well but after Nate returns to LA, the local funeral director tells Lisa's parents he doesn't think the ashes they interred were in fact Lisa's. David and Keith attend a friend's wedding and decide they want to adopt a child, though David seems to think it's more pressing. Ruth returns home and tells George what it will take for them to continue as a married couple. She invites George's son Kyle and her friend, who are now a couple, to dinner. Claire has a final confrontation with Edie and seems to be getting friendlier with Billy. Rico is happy to have spent some time at home with the kids but is quickly dismayed when he realizes that Vanessa has asked an old high school friend to visit her. Written by garykmcd

Why Happiness Is So Difficult to Be Achieved?
20 November 2006 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

The wife of the alcoholic Robert Duane Wething kicks his dead body is a parking area. Nate does not want to travel to Idaho for the religious ceremony with Lisa's ashes, but Brenda convinces him to go and she travels with Maya and him. Keith and David go to the wedding of Terry and Paul, and David wants to adopt a child. Ruth returns home and imposes conditions to George to keep their marriage. Rico visits his sons and Vanessa very well dressed dates an old high school friend, upsetting Rico. Ruth invites Kyle and Becky for dinner with George, and they discuss possibilities of the end of the world, through nuclear bomb, use of oil, lack of water or global heating. Barb meets Brenda with Nate and Maya after leaving The Black Forest Inn. The minister tells Lisa's parents that he believes the ashes they buried are not from Lisa.

In this episode, the promiscuous Claire tells that she is only happy when she is high, and she meets Billy. Brenda and Nate are having a steady relationship. David wants to go to the Rainbow Kids to adopt a child. Ruth seems to be calmer, and the marriage of Rico definitely ended. My vote is nine.

Title (Brazil): "A Floresta Negra" ("The Black Forest")
