David enjoys singing in the choir but turns down an opportunity to go to a member's open house - he and Keith are spending the weekend at a hotel out of town, but from the moment they get there David worries about seeming too obviously gay in front of the straight couples.

Nothing in Life is Perfect
3 November 2006 | by claudio_carvalhoSee all my reviews

While walking on the sidewalk in the night, the nineteen years old Callie Renee Mortimer hears the voices of three threatening men, scares, tries to escape from them and is hit by a car on the street. In the end, it was only a prank of three friends of her that caused the fatal accident. David is singing in the choir and travels to a hotel with Keith for a couple of days of leisure, but he feels uncomfortable with his gay situation in the place. Claire is in love with the unfaithful Phil, but she has a class with an outstanding art professor that shows the ambivalence of her life, changing her perspective and she breaks with the crematory guy in spite of loving him. Ruth goes with Bettina to a mall to play around, and she learns how to be a shoplifter just for fun. The temperamental and emotionally affected Carol upsets Lisa, and she quits her job. Nate, Lisa and Maya provisionally move to Ruth's house.

"The Eye Inside" shows the reaction of the characters to their ambivalence due to different actions of others: Lisa quits her job; Claire breaks her relationship; Ruth changes her behavior; David feels uncomfortable; Callie dies. Nothing in life is perfect or works exactly the way we schedule to be, and people react in different manners to these unexpected feeling, having further consequences. I really liked the message of this episode. My vote is nine.
