Funny, dramatic, well executed and vastly superior to its preceding episodes!

Lauren Ambrose shines in this episode as Claire, where the dark comical of this family reaches a new height, evidently from the plot of the episode involving a missing foot. Upon Nate's "revelation", he is alerted from Gilardi of a cheap crematorium likely to drive in more customers, and thus, run them out of business; just as things can't get any worse, Thomas Alfredo Ramono, now merely blood and guts, is left in the hands of Nate, who soon realises his foot is missing. Unbeknownst to Nate, David or Rico, Claire has taken the foot to get revenge on being exploited and mocked by her schoolmates for her private time with her now ex-boyfriend.

Mrs. Ruth Fisher finds herself in a financial adversity upon making a series of bets at the racetrack with friend, Amelia after initially doing so well, getting up to $9000 before things take a turn for the worst. Claire's revenge plan sparks to life as Gabe gets Claire into trouble with the Principal. Claire and Keith go out searching for the foot in the last place where it was left, but there is no such luck. Claire reveals to Keith that she is aware both him and her brother are a couple, and tries to understand what Keith sees in him. As Claire returns home after Romano's funeral with some cover-ups, she reveals the house across the street is burning down. Meanwhile, Brenda has a secret of her own.

The character interactions in this episode were great. Compared to the previous two episodes, there were a lot of story progression and more comedy relief, as well as a tight structure and fitting climax for a very satisfying episode overall.
