Episode cast overview, first billed only:
Inspector Gerson


Aaron Buchbinder passes away painfully shortly after Nate arrives to visit (after he argues with Ruth about her visiting and photographing his daughter Maya). Kroehner's last act against the Fisher & Sons funeral home is to hire an inspector to examine the place, and they're fined for the problematic drainage system. Nate has a bleed requiring a cranial surgery to cure. Vanessa encourages Rico to ask for permission to be a partner since he has the money to pay the fine, and he's given 25% of it only when Nate reminds David he may need a replacement for Nate. Ruth quits her job at Nikolai's since she feels they can't easily share an environment. Claire goes to an interview at LAC but remembers her father's loss was the reason she began artwork, so cries for the first time since his death. Nate goes by to see Brenda one last time to attempt reconciliation and announce he'll be getting surgery, and finally tells Ruth about the surgery and its cause on their way back from seeing Maya. ...

End of Season, New Destinies
26 October 2006 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

Ruth takes lots of picture of Maya and shows to the family in the breakfast, upsetting Nate, and he visits Aaron Buchbinder, who is agonizing and finally dies. There is an inspection of DCA in Fisher's Funeral Service, and they are severely fined. Rico buys 25% of the society for US$ 75,000.00 and saves their business. Claire goes to the LAC-Arts for interview, and she recalls the death of her father and cries. Taylor moves to her grandparents house, because Keith is suspended. Brenda faces that she is sexually addicted and goes to therapy. Nate has a bleed and needs an emergency cranial surgery, and he goes with his mother to visit the baby, and he finally tells her about his surgery. Ruth quits the job in Nikolai's shop. Claire has a conversation with Nate, and he visits Brenda. Ruth goes with him to the hospital, and Claire and David do not go to her graduation going also to the hospital.

This episode has some very emotional scenes: the touching visit of Nate to Aaron; the funny dream of Claire while waiting for her interview and her further reaction; the happiness of Rico when he joins the society of the Fisher's brothers; the conversation of Brenda and Nate; and Nate crying on the lap of his mother. My vote is nine.

Title (Brazil): "A Última Vez" ("The Last Time")
