Storyline

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... Written by brainybrailler@comcast.net

The best 10 minutes I have ever seen
19 March 2009 | by zbypSee all my reviews

I just finished watching SFU. Before giving my opinion I would like to say that I’ve watched a lot of great TV-series such as The X Files, Twin Peaks, Dexter, etc. I think they somehow changed me. But Six Feet Under especially the last episode, last 10 minutes was the greatest experience. I can’t remember the time that i cried (probably when i was a child), but during this last 10 minutes crying was all i did, and also another half an hour after that. I see now what people are, that without them you are nothing, maybe you can be happy alone but how long??? I know now that i need to change many in my life, if i had seen SFU earlier i wouldn’t have hurt so many people's feelings. I am 25 (was born in 1983 like Claire) and wonder now if i’ll read this in the future, how my life would be then. All i know is that this last 10 minutes i will never forget.
