Even Christian is startled when his extremely rich, spoiled and vain client Mrs. Hedda Grubman announces she's going to die from terminal lung cancer but wants him to be the last to touch her, in bed hopefully, but also as a posthumous patient to make her the best-looking funeral star ever. Conor's upcoming hand operation makes Sean so nervous he beats up an offensive boy's father. Marlowe Sawyer makes Julia hold out consent for the operation with specialist Dr. Mugavi on account of 'medical doubts'. Sean is haunted by his own boyhood operation cum family trauma. Christian is surprise by Grub's missed chances, request for a eulogy and last will. Written by KGF Vissers

One of the best of the Season
13 September 2007 | by PoisonKeybladeSee all my reviews

I'm not sure why everyone strongly dislikes season 4. It had a lot going on, sure, but there was so much depth to the season and so much realism that took the world of Nip/Tuck to a completely new level. This episode is no exception, with some of the best acting of the season, and the final days of long-time character Mrs. Grubman. All of the performances were perfect, and they make this episode one to really treasure. This was one of the best episodes in a long time, and it had a lot going for it. Overall, 'Conor McNamara' is a sensational episode that furthers character development and an amazing story with some great montages and the ending of one of the series' strongest characters.
