Plot Summary

Nate and Brenda's daughter Willa is born, but 2 months early and at only 2 lb. 4 oz., requiring a prolonged hospital stay. 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 love for his daughter, and someone else. Claire learns the company who gave the job offer has just failed, but Nate encourages her to go onto New York anyway. Written by brainybrailler@comcast.net

Did You Know?

Edit
Trivia Although her character Brenda gives birth at the beginning of the episode, Rachel Griffiths was still, in reality, 8 and a half months pregnant with her own child. To disguise this fact, the costume and prop department had to devise numerous ways to hide her belly. These included dressing Griffiths in outfits with big shawls or capes, or having her hold a large purse between her body and the camera. One of the concerns when filming Brenda giving birth to Willa was that Griffiths would actually go into labor for real. Griffiths gave birth to her second daughter 3 days later. See more »
Goofs In one scene, Ruth finds Maya's stuffed monkey lodged between the refrigerator and the wall in the kitchen, but in all previous shots of the fridge (after Maya has left) the monkey isn't there. See more »
