The Green Funeral
19 August 2007 | by claudio_carvalhoSee all my reviews

When David brings Nate's corpse, he realizes that his brother was a donor of organs. David tells Brenda that Nate had told him that he wanted a green funeral, being buried neither with restoration nor coffin. The family and friends grieve the loss and Ruth blames herself for her absence. Brenda has inner conflicts with the whole situation and leaves Maya with Ruth.

Brenda is totally confused with the loss of Nate. The traumas of David with his abduction have returned and Claire is really missing her big brother. Maya is missing her father and Brenda is having difficulties to explain what happened with him. My vote is eight.

Title (Brazil): "Solidão" ("Solitude")
