‘Six Feet Under’ is laid to rest

(Posted August 22, 2005 by Leah Yoakum)

The satisfying finale is not without tears or death.

NEW YORK - Befitting any drama about a family that owns a funeral home, “Six Feet Under” gives itself a graceful send-off to end its five-season run.

And befitting “Six Feet Under,” this finale is not without tears, histrionics, four-letter words, dark humor and (naturally) death. The Fishers wouldn’t have it any other way.

At the start of the episode, everyone seems to be going nuts. Small wonder. Life has been awfully punishing of late.

Nate Fisher, the conflicted man-boy, died three episodes ago from a brain hemorrhage. Now his younger brother David, sister Claire and mother Ruth, as well as his estranged wife Brenda (who gives birth prematurely to their child) sink further into gloom.

Meanwhile, Nate (Peter Krause) continues his post-mortem haunts, in this episode initially berating Brenda (Rachel Griffiths) for causing their infant daughter’s possible brain damage.

Rebellious artist Claire (Lauren Ambrose) is panicked about moving from Los Angeles and launching her career. Ruth (Frances Conroy), whose husband died in the series’ debut, has now buried her first-born and faces losing her daughter.
