Nightmares, Desires and Ruth
16 November 2006 | by claudio_carvalhoSee all my reviews

While walking in the rain with a stolen umbrella, Lawrence Henry Mason is struck by a lightening and immediately dies. His daughter Jennifer, former girlfriend of David, calls him to make the arrangements of the funeral service. Keith and David discuss about the colleagues of Keith that believe he is straight. David is disappointed with Keith and tells him that he would come out with his gay situation to his mates. Further, he says that Keith would be the last person he would believe that would turn into a self-loathing homo. Keith becomes upset with the eccentric and nasty star Celeste in a benefit show. Maya visits Legoland with Barb's family and Nate visits Brenda, who is playing twisted SM games with Joe, but they receive him. On the next morning, while running in the park, Nate follows a dog and he arrives in a psychic that tells him that Lisa is alive, disturbing him again. Ruth decides to press charges against Arthur in the police, and George tells her that his son Kyle is the one actually sending feces to him. Ruth schedules a visit to Kyle. Claire with a dyed hair has a disappointing date with Jimmy, and Edie offers a real orgasm to her. Rico is split between the insistent Sophia and Vanessa. Brenda and Joe have dinner with Margaret and Olivier, and later Joe tells Brenda that he would like to have a baby.

In this episode, many characters have nightmares of daydreams, and Ruth is really an annoying character. I can perfectly understand why Nate left home when he was seventeen with such an irritating mother. The ambiguous and difficult situation of Keith is becoming weird in his job. Nate is completely lost, and Claire totally confused. Brenda seems to be very stable regardless of her deranged mother and twisted boyfriend. My vote is eight.

Title (Brazil): "Angústias" ("Anguishes")
