Episode Summary

EDIT
Danny is skeptical when the pregnant girlfriend of his missing estranged brother, Rafael "Rafi" Alvarez, and mother of their 9-year-old son, tells him that Rafi has transformed himself into a responsible family man, who recently obtained a loan to open his own body shop. But Danny's investigation uncovers that Rafi has been seen with a convicted car thief, and the large sum of cash he'd been flaunting for his purchase of a body shop didn't come from the bank. Though Jack makes the point that Rafi may have legitimate explanations for the suspicious circumstances, Danny braces himself for the very real possibility that his brother may have put himself in harm's way.moreless

  • Danny's brother Rafi goes missing from his home.

    This is probably one of the best episodes in WAT history. (having now watched all the seasons...)

    Danny's troubled brother goes missing while tying to get his life in order after getting out of jail. (in a previous episode we find Sylvia, Rafi's girlfriend asking Danny to vouch for Rafi's character at his parol hearing.)

    Rafi's life seems to be getting in order, he's working for a body shop and has plans to open his own. We soon discover that Rafi has been turned away from everything he's been planning for his life. The bank refuses to help him start over and the company he plans to buy; sells before he has his chance. Danny was amazing in the episode we already know how he feels about his brother and his past, seeing him face it is the most touching thing in this episode. He re faces his addictions and even has a cry for help, seeking a shoulder from Vivan, who is still on sick leave. Manny lovers probably enjoyed this episode more then any other (smile)

    Even the ending was A+, promising that Danny will no longer be absent in the life of his brother nor the rest of this extended family.moreless
  • One of the best episodes. Watch this to see how good this show can be.

    I thought it was nice to get to know Danny in more detail because we have never really seen what his past was like and it was definately a tearjerker. The end scene especially. Enrique is a very believeable actor and I think he plays his character perfectly. Excellent episode!!!!
