Three months later. As they prepare to accept a prestigious award from their alma mater, Sean grows increasingly tired of covering up Christian's numerous indiscretions, a pattern going back to their first initial meeting in college. Kimber, now married to Christian and working as an interior decorator, heads up the remodeling of the McNamara/Troy practice, but continues to worry about Christian's fidelity. Also, a new patient named Dan Daly, suffering from the self-mutilating disorder Lesch-Nyhan syndrome, comes to McNamara/Troy for reconstructive surgery. Written by matt-282

The episode 6.11, Dan Daly is one of the reasons why I still look forward to every new episode after over 6 years of watching this groundbreaking and still fascinating show. Nip/Tuck and his main characters have changed. I don't like some of the choices the show creators/writers have made, some roads they took that made the show not just outrageous but often ridiculous and unbelievable (in a bad way). The relationships between Sean, Christian, and the members of their now extended family would give you a headache just to try to figure out who is who to whom at this point. For example, right now, Christian is a grandfather and a step-father of a little girl named Jenna, and Kimble is his wife and ex-daughter-in-law. Some of the episodes, it seems, were made just to shock the viewers, just to throw in some nasty or over the top situations to make us think, OK what else do they have in store and how low can they really get? But even then, I kept watching. Why? Like many loyal fans, I can't give up on the show. Even at its nastiest, most ridiculous and implausible, it has still been fun to watch. The production values have been high, the medical cases have been based on the real stories of the rare or even unique human conditions and are of great interest, and the music choice is outstanding. The most important for me - no matter where the authors would send Christian and Sean, I would follow because I love them both with all their flaws, problems, and the mess that they got themselves into. The last words in the Dan Daly episode belong to Sean: "Not giving up on someone is not trying to change them but accepting them for who they are". It is very true in regards to the show. I am accepting it for what it is and for what it has given me during all these years. It will be over soon and I know I will miss it.

Now, back to the latest episode. It's been a while since I was so deeply moved by a single Nip/Tuck episode. It took six seasons for the writers to let us take a glimpse where and when it all started, to take us back in time and introduce Sean and Christian before McNamara/Troy, to the point where they were deciding on what they wanted to do with their lives, when they were twenty something medical students in Miami. If anything, I believe the new star was born last night. Andrew J. West as the young Christian Troy almost stole the episode. Not only he looked the part, but he WAS Christian Troy we've came to know over the years, just much younger. This choice was a casting stroke of genius. The two young actors who played Sean and Julia were also very good but West was a revelation for me. The episode had its portion of the usual for the latest Nip/Tuck excesses but the journey to the point of origin that two long time friends and partners took was on the par with the best, the strongest episodes. It was very well written and acted by all.
