New Destinies
18 November 2006 | by claudio_carvalhoSee all my reviews

Joan Morrison postpones the treatment of two tumors, they get bigger and bigger and she dies of cancer. David is feeling better, but he is still much traumatized. Rico breaks with Sophia, but Vanessa sees him leaving Sophia's house and send him away home. The annoying Ruth is paranoid with George, and decides to follow him in his fossil hunt in the canyon. She decides to go with him to Sarah's house, where she meets Bettina. Brenda sleeps with Nate and decides to tell Joe. Celeste is upset after losing her favorite earrings, and she decides to go to a gay club, and Keith discloses his sexual preference to Javier. Claire decides to have a homosexual experience with Edie.

I do not know how George can support an irritating woman like Ruth; I am just a viewer and I can not like this boring character. Even dead Lisa is annoying. Let's see the promising sentimental lives of Rico, Claire Brenda and Nate in the next episodes. My vote is eight.

Title (Brazil): "O Desafio" ("The Challenge")
