Storyline

Besides having to deal with that, Nate remains unaware that Brenda is still seeing other men but wonders whether she still wants to marry him, or just does out of pity...and whether he should wed at all when Lisa meets him and announces she's pregnant with his child. Claire has doubts about her relationship with Billy, who's also throwing Brenda and her perspective on most of her relationships into confusion. David's relationship with Keith is strong, but Keith's life is troubled when Karla relapses into drugs. Meanwhile, just about everybody finds Nikolai to be a pain while Ruth's working - even Rico loses his sandwich to him. But Ruth is more concerned with the fact that he's in debt to ...

Quotes

Billy Chenowith: That's the thing about Narcissus, it's not that he's so fucking in love with himself, because he isn't at all, he fucking hates himself. It's that without that reflection looking back at him... he doesn't exist.

Breaking the Rules
18 October 2006 | by claudio_carvalhoSee all my reviews

While having lunch with his buddy on a building under construction, a worker accidentally drops his metal pan for carrying food on the head of the pedestrian Dwight Edgar Garrison and kills him. The widow and Dwight's two daughters have a serious altercation at Fisher's Home because of the last wish of Dwight of being buried side-by-side with his former wife and mother of his daughters. Brenda and Nate watch the sunset at the shore, and Nate questions Brenda if she really wants to marry him for love. Nate invites David to be his best man and meets Lisa by chance in the supermarket, and she discloses that she is five months pregnant of him, and Nate faces a dilemma. Brenda has casual sex with a stranger in the bathroom of a bookstore and tells Melissa later. Karla drugs herself again, and Keith convinces her to go to a clinic for treatment. Ruth finds that Nikolai actually owes money to a dangerous Yuri. Claire meets Billy and sees how deranged he still is.

In this episode we see again how dysfunctional and unstable Brenda is, now being sexually driven by wild sex with strangers. The toxic relationship of Billy and Claire will certainly lead these disturbed characters to some unusual situation. I believe the baby of Lisa plus the weird behavior of Brenda will lead Nate to some decision. The situation between Nikolai and Yuri will certainly Ruth to take a decision. My vote is seven.
