Alright, so here it is. If Hans (or anyone for that matter) hasn't seen the most recent episode of Six Feet Under yet, that's your problem, not mine. I should not be too concerned about the spoilers that follow:
Concerning "Narm!", I think Nate's dead. At first I thought he was having another one of his episodes from his AVM. He certainly wasn't siezuring prior to blacking out. Clearly, he's had a stroke, but I don't think he's passed out or anything like that. At first I thought he was just blacked out or something like that, but after talking with Amanda about it, we think he's dead. Amanda pointed to the way his eyes were set. Not rolled back in his head, just fixed straight ahead, and wide open. Added to that, he didn't appear to be breathing. Can the paramedics get there quickly enough to rescue him? Who knows. Okay... now we need to assume that he's dead in order to move along with what I'm gonna say.
Ruth doesn't want anything to do with the business (other than being an investor), Claire has no interest at all, so the Days of "Fisher and Diaz" are over. David and Rico can't do it alone, so they'll have to get another partner, or possibly sell the business. I really don't recall Kroehner going bankrupt or anything like that. When Kroehner decided to put a funeral home right across the street, there was the fire that Claire didn't set. And that weasel who was always hounding them got fired. Although we haven't seen Mitzi in a while, I really don't remember anything about bankruptcy. Am I just forgetting? As we approach the end of the season, and the series, that might be a tidy way to resolve that. One theory.... Rico takes over and hires that freaky Angela girl. Hey, she does really good work even if she is a freak. And as long as we're bringing up old shit, lets just say that the two of them are partners, and they hire Arthur full time. I don't really think that would happen, but it's just a thought.
Okay.... Now let's assume for half a second that Nate will be revived after some period of time. Maggie will probably be able to cover up their sex act and resultant absence from Meeting by skewing the timeline of events. She'll just say that Nate showed up to give her that ride, but suffered a stroke right then. Of course Brenda won't believe her because she never liked Maggie to begin with. She already assumes that something is going on between them. We all knew this (Nate and Maggie having sex) would eventually happen, and I think Brenda did too. However, Nate might tell the story differently and they'll blow their really thin cover. Brenda will be furious either way, actually. So if he survives, or is revived, or whatever, I think Brenda's gone. She'll take off. And here's where our jokes turn out to be real. She'll tell Billy about what happened, and he'll go into a rage (nobody fucks with his one true love and gets away with it). He'll kill everyone in the Fisher family. Except Claire.
Now, back to the "Narm" incident. Nate says, "You know, this wasn't planned", but it was. He showed up earlier than she was expecting. He did that hoping that they could hook up or something. She's equally guilty of premeditation, though. She kinda set that up neatly for him to be the one giving her a ride, and with the way she'd been flirting. And then, did you see the underwear she was wearing?!? You don't wear hooker panties like that unless you're planning on getting some. I may not know a lot about women, but that's common knowledge.
That's just my two cents. What do I know?
