    Great episode, as usual.
    Does Gabriel taking the cell phone from Claire and her touching/fingerprinting the gun set her up for a fun time with the police? I know Keith means well, but could she be walking into trouble??
    The storyline with Brenda is working out nicely as well, I like how they are finally making her realize she has no real 'life' and isn't as smart as she thinks she is [​IMG]

    Yeah, great episode. I still can't believe how good all of these characters are! All of the actors and actresses do an exceptional job each and every show.

    I really like the Keith Charles character. He's a good guy and is played to perfection by Mathew St. Patrick, IMHO.

    I really think that Brenda is a couple sandwiches short of a picnic and is heading for some sort of breakdown sooner than later. It may be when Nate finally gets around to telling her about his AVM condition.

    I think Brenda also saw that guy from the bar. I think he was her late client. I think there's going to be at least a temporary split between those too. Brenda is awfully selfish and that is going to play into her downfall.

    Yeah, I loved the scene in the classroom when the teacher told her to read the book before discussing it. I think we've all known a few Brenda-type students. [​IMG]
    I was really surprised to see the violent reaction from Gabriel, sure he's not a great kid, but this was just too sad. It didn't feel tacked on though, it seemed like something his character could do, and then regret it.

    As much as I like Rachel Griffiths as an actress, I hate Brenda as a person, regardless of her fucked-up past. If Nate were my friend I would have to tell him to dump her. Her sanity is not his responsibility. Nor is Gabe's problems Claire's responsibility.

    Larry,
    I think that is the point isn't it? We are supposed to hate them and realize that they reflect others in our lives that we see all the time, but can't do anything about when our friends/family won't listen to us!!
    Besides, you have to have someone to root for and against and characters that inject conflict and good storylines [​IMG]

    Ryan, yes I agree that there was no "winner". That's the thing about this show, there are no real "bad guys" or "good guys", they're just people.

    You said exactly what I think about Brenda's character.. at some point, you'd cut bait.

    But what I found humorous was that here he is in a relationship with someone I would determine as a psycho, and he's berating his sister for her choice.. when he's rebuked with "because she loves him" I was thinking: "and look who you're with.."

    i caught the tail end of some hbo quick peek special about the show for this year.
    andy ball said we can expect a lot more "external" characters coming into play this season. hopefully that'll add a nice dynamic to this already excellent show.
    gabe's going off the deep end...did you see how tweaked he looked! talk about stressed!
    i'm glad claire turned him in...is it me or is she the only balanced one in the group! [​IMG]
