3-week-old Dillon Michael Cooper suffers SIDS - an extremely uncomfortable charge for the Fishers as far as comforting the family but even more so for Rico, since his wife is currently pregnant for a second time. After Gabe's suicide attempt fails, Claire lies to Ruth that his drug overdose was an accident and points out that she, not his uncaring family, should help. David, Nate, and Brenda go to Vegas for a funeral directors' meeting where Nate informs Gilardi he knows what the arsonist's motive was, David meets Keith under unpleasant circumstances just after being caught with a male prostitute, and Nate and Brenda have an equally unpleasant encounter with Billy though have different opinions on how best to deal with it. To avoid all her floral arrangements looking like those in funerals, In between worrying about whether David really is gay and what it means for their relationship, Ruth takes a class on arranging which also instructs how to use instinct.

Fun time for Nate and Brenda, bad time for Federico
24 January 2011 | by (Turkey) – See all my reviews

After the 3-year old Dillon dies, Federico concerns about his own baby on the road. Nate and David are going to a funeral director meeting in Las Vegas and Brenda joins them, too.

After learning that his son is gay, Ruth is having some troubles about flower arrangements and she signs to a flower club. After learning how to breath and stopping being a control freak Ruth does an arrangement successfully.

Claire is still trying to reach out Gabe, but he still refuses to get help.

David is caught having sex with a prostitute in Las Vegas and unfortunately Keith meets him in the police office and tells him get good. This will have a major place in the next episode.

While playing poker Brenda finds out Billy followed them. He even took their picture when they were asleep.

'The Trip' is sort of mixture of both drama and comedy. Especially Federico's plot is emotional. My vote to 'The Trip' is 8.6/10.
