Storyline

Gloom all around. Brian is told by the specialist the lump which Shane, a doctor, found during sex is probably cancer, but if it isn't the necessary operation to make sure still costs him one testicle; even two hot studs Justin had waiting for him can't revive his normal sexual appetite. Vic's funeral is a depressing event, nearly everyone comes. Hunter's total lack of respect for the mourning is only one of his nasty sides, he's caught smoking pot and fighting; good boy Mikey looses confidence and his patience, Ben calms his down and insists Hunter has too much to process. Ted felt festive about his addiction recovery and was totally into his sponsor Blake Wyzecki as sex partner again, but then gets dumped as gently as possible... Written by KGF Vissers
