Storyline

A lost pair of hikers discover the wrecked remains of a car with the skeleton of the driver, William Aaron Jaffe, inside. Nate is surprised by the son who never knew him not seeming to be troubled by it, and worried by the remarried widow's remark that they weren't right for each other and married too hastily - his own relationship with Lisa has become strained when she encourages him to cut back on his spending and considers staying home with Maya for a few years, without even letting him be the first to know. Things are further complicated when Nate runs into Brenda, and Lisa suspects the drinks they had together weren't just for catching up and apologies. David's enjoyment of the choir is overshadowed by one of the members recognizing him from a shameful experience several years before. Claire's invitation to go with Russell to his brother's wedding is forgotten when Olivier asks her to be his assistant - which turns out to mean his driver. Keith is ready to quit his job. Rico ...

Relationships Are Not Easy
5 November 2006 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

A young couple finds a crashed car with a skeleton inside while hiking through a wrong trail in the woods. William Aaron Jaffe has been missing for more than twenty five years. Russell invites Claire to date him in the wedding of his brother. Claire is also invited to be the assistant of Oliver Staal, but later she finds that he needs a driver actually. Rico convinces David to hire a new apprentice to save US$ 10,000.00 per year, and the weird Arthur Martin is selected. David sings with the choir and is afraid of one of the gays that recognized him from the toilet of the Sears. Lisa does not want to work anymore because of Maya, and presses Nate to save money. Brenda visits Nate and has a cold reception, and later she apologizes with him for her attitudes in the past.

This episode focuses how difficult long-term relationships are, and I am really glad with the return of Brenda, my favorite character of this series. Nate misses his freedom with his boring marriage. My vote is eight.
