    Good episode all around of Six Feet Under, but I felt like the pacing was too slow this week. Most of the episode was devoted to plots that I really didn't care for. The highlight of the episode was the cliffhanger and of course Rico coming back to Fisher and Sons.

    You really get the feeling that the season is coming to a close with all these story lines heating up, with Brenda and her brother, or Claire and Gabe, and Gabe possibly offing himself.

    But the whole Billy thing has become so tired, hopefully Six Feet Under is getting ready for a huge pay off. Mrs. Fisher and her date with a guy was just not entertaining, and I felt as though she got way too much screen time.

    The new person kind of fell short tonight. They could have done so much more with this story line, but they didn't. Overall, it was a solid installment though, this show remains consistently good.
