OK, I got into Six Feet Under late-the end of last season. Then, after my own near death experience in December, I rented the DVDs of the early seasons and became obsessed. And...like most people I know, the first episodes of this current season seemed slow, obvious, repetitious. The storylines seemed fractured and disjointed. And, more than anything else, Nate's latest round of soul-searching made me want to wring his neck. "I hope this means that he's going to die from that brain thing," I told a friend. That's the only thing that could make his ongoing uncertainty interesting.
And so tonight he slept with the Quaker chick and apparently dropped dead. No scenes from the next episode...why? Because he's dead or because he isn't.
Oh, if he's NOT dead, and this was just a tease--there will be hell to pay.
