While eating canned peaches, the diabetic Daniel Holzenchenko dies and his relatives do not agree with a procedure for the funeral services. George invites Ruth to travel, but she has no further patience with him. Brenda decides to tell Maya that she is her stepmother, upsetting Nate. David and Keith go to an adoption picnic promoted by an agency and David meets the Afro-American Anthony; however, Mary tells them that she is pregnant and they conclude that they are not able to have two children at home. Margaret puts pressure on Claire to return to Billy. Julio has a problem at school with another student, and Rico manipulates the principal blaming his divorce with Vanessa for the situation, telling private details of her life. Mary finds that is not pregnant, and David and Keith return to the adoption agency and finds that Anthony has an older brother. Ruth rents an apartment and plots to leave George in the place. Nate decides to tell Maya the truth about Lisa.

In this great episode, my first conclusion is that I definitely hate the loathing character Ruth, brilliantly performed by Frances Conroy. Rico sees the backfire of his Machiavellian manipulation of the situation of his son in the school. Claire is completely lost, pressed by her disgusting mother and her deranged boyfriend. Nate and Brenda seem to have find peace in their marriage. My vote is eight.
