Ruth considers marrying George but does decide to slow things down a bit after learning he's been through 6 marriages. Angelica continues to give Rico grief at home.

Death Penalty and Abortion
10 November 2006 | by claudio_carvalhoSee all my reviews

In Texas, the murderer of women Carl Demond Williman is executed through a lethal injection. His daughter Allison Williman, who lost her job in a car dealer, hires the Fisher & Diaz services and has one night stand with Nate. Brenda calls Nate, but he never answers her calls. Claire goes to a Planned Parenthood clinic and schedules an abortion, and asks Brenda to go with her. Ruth moves fast and decides to settle down and get married with George. Nate has many daydreams and nightmares with Lisa. David has an affair with Patrick and breaks off with Keith.

In this episode, there is a beginning of a discussion of death penalty between Rico, Arthur and David, but actually very shallow and cliché. I believe the writer could have explored much more this controversial theme. I liked the simplicity how Claire dealt with her situation and found the resolution. This great episode is underrated in IMDb. My vote is nine.

Title (Brazil): "Crepuscular" ("Twilight")
