Relationships Are Not Easy, 5 November 2006
Author: Claudio Carvalho from Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

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.

Title (Brazil): "A Armadilha" ("The Trap")
