Nate is convinced she won't make it and insists that he can't accept it if she does and is "damaged", shaking Brenda's own confidence. Rico encourages David to sell the funeral home but instead he and Keith buy out Rico's 25% so he can start his own. David agrees to temporarily leave home, and goes to the funeral home. There he's confronted by Nathaniel about considering leaving the business and for his gayness, and is forced to fight his mysterious attacker back, then finally sees his face. Maya is returned to Brenda and Ruth has to face her own problems, until Maggie reveals Nate did see her, happily, as Brenda insisted. Claire takes up photography (of Ted) again and gets a job offer at a New York photo production company, but offers to be there for Ruth until she insists she go and unfreezes her account. Brenda gets a surprise visit from Nate, who finally shows... Written by brainybrailler@comcast.net

Quotes

George Sibley: [after her reminder that he left her and her brother, never to fully regain contact] I'm sorry.
Maggie Sibley: Don't be. That's the way life is, right? I mean, you ruin things, you walk away. You go somewhere else until it's ruined... Just let me go.

Crazy Credits

In every episode, the end credits appear in white lettering over black. This is the only episode in which the end credits are in black lettering over white. This is also the only episode after the second season which features rolling credits as opposed to title cards, and the only episode in which all of the end credits are in scroll (seasons one and two feature a mix of cards, followed by a scroll).

Speechless
9 February 2007 | by ekho37See all my reviews

Speechless would sum it up for me. This was the best ending to an amazing series. It will put you through a whirlwind of emotions. My husband and I just sat there in a trance. We were so excited to see the last episode but yet sad at the same time. We have watched the series from the beginning and you start to feel like you are a part of the Fisher family. We felt like we could relate to so many of the episodes. This last one though had the perfect ending. Just thinking about it makes me teary eyed. When it was all over with we looked at each other and said "now what?" It was like saying goodbye to your foster family. For those of you who haven't seen it...be prepared to be left speechless. Oh and don't forget the tissues, you will probably need them.
