Six Feet Under Untitled (2001–2005) Online

George's infatuation with impending disaster is causing him nightmares. His daughter Maggie joins him and Ruth for dinner and she has a lot of stories about her dad. Later, Ruth is quite concerned when she finds George talking by himself to an imaginary person. Claire's showing of her work is a huge success but she ignores her friends in the process. Nate is stressing over Barb's threat to take Maya away from him. He learns more about the circumstances of Lisa's death, leading to another tragedy. David hopes that if he faces his attacker, who is now in prison, he will feel liberated. It doesn't quite work out that way. Keith gets an interesting offer from Roger, who had promised to drop his lawsuit against Dave in return for sex.

The episode is called "Untitled" for reasons that Claire explains in relation to her art.

This episode received Emmy nominations for Outstanding Art Direction and Cinematography.

Tina Holmes, who plays George's daughter Maggie, actually first read for the part of Bettina's daughter, Marci.

The sculptures were supplied by Los Angeles artist Bruce Gray. Bruce also has his name on the wall in the art gallery scene.

In the last few minutes, when Nate and Brenda finally come together, you can hear thunder in the background, which bodes ill for the upcoming fifth season.

User reviews



After the previous season very much focusing on relationships and their collapse, this season opens with the tragic and final end to one of the relationships just as another begins. This season continues the darker material of course but generally the tone is a little more variable than before with still plenty of tragedy mixed in with more humorous and human touches. That said, this is a season that is rather driven by more excessive developments – a sudden marriage, a day-long kidnap/assault, the apparent suicide of one of the characters; there are a lot of things here that if you saw them in a standard daytime soap you would scoff at them for their excess and their clear role as a narrative device. But there is a difference between such shows and this one.

The difference is in the writing but more specifically in the direction that the characters are the focus, not the events that happen to these characters. This sounds simple but it is very effective thing that the show does because it means you engage with the character and, by and large, go with them through whatever they go through – not because the specific event is the thing that does it. This shows a great deal in this season because, as I said, some of the detail here isn't totally convincing if you laid it out as just simple statements. It isn't laid out this way though, it is laid out in the context of flawed people going through their specific life, whether it be the temptation to cheat, the inability to communicate with someone or just day to day tensions caused by the clash of personalities. This is very convincing and the characters feel very real so that even when the plot developments are perhaps not so "day to day", I never struggled to go with it, because within the them the characters and their reactions just worked.

This also helps some of the observations made in the writing, some of the "truths", because rather than being pat or smug, they are backed up by those going through the subject – so these lines of dialogues and scenes work because again we buy the characters, have seen how they got there and it feels genuine. Again, very good writing. The cast continue to deliver on this potential. Krause has some of the harder material due to its excess but he mostly makes it work and the actions of the character are sold by how well he gets his role. Hall is the same and convinces whether he is under extreme trauma or if he is just having spat with Keith. Conroy continues to be great while Ambrose is allowed to grow up and herself become more and more of a person and again she makes the most of this. Support from Rodriguez, Patrick, Cromwell, Griffiths is consistently good – although I should not say support since they are all brought to the fore and make up a stronger front than before.

The third season was very much about lots of relationship problems and things falling apart and, while season 4 is still dark and full of conflict and trouble, it mixes it up more to include love, humor and human touches in a way that enhances the darker material by way of placing it within a much more familiar world. It works very well, allows the characters to develop and be flawed and generally makes for an emotionally engaging season.


Kenneth MacDonald Henderson is split in two while trying to rescue three passengers of an elevator. Jimmy shows the pictures of Claire to a dealer and she is invited to expose in the Bellandi Gallery. Claire is excited and invites her friends, using cocaine in the vernissage. She argues with the selfish Russell, Billy defends her and later they have sex. Roger Pasquese has oral sex with Keith and calls off his claim in the justice. Later he invites Keith to be his bodyguard. Ruth and George have lunch with George's daughter Maggie. Later, when Ruth sees George speaking alone, she calls Maggie. Rico misses his family, and after having a conversation with Kenneth's widow, he proposes reconciliation with Vanessa, but she asks for the divorce. David visits Jake in the prison to express his rage and he feels better in the end. Nate sees the picture of Lisa that Michaela gave to David and travels to Idaho. He meets Hoyt and discloses an inner secret with tragic consequences.

The last episode of the Fourth Season "Six Feet Under" is great and gives a hint of the destinies of the characters in the next season. Claire is still using many types of drugs and having a promiscuous life, now with the unstable Billy. Rico seems to be conformed with his lonely life; George is insane and intends to live in the bomb shelter; Nate and Brenda seems to be OK; David seems to have superseded his trauma; Keith may be tempted by Roger's proposal. My vote is nine.

Title (Brazil): "Sem Título" ("Untitled")


Much like the previous season finales, 'Untitled''s opening death eerily echoes the prominent themes of the season as a whole and the positions of the characters. Ripped in half by an elevator, Kenneth Henderson's demise could be an allegory for Nate's remaining ties to Lisa being an obstacle to his new relationship with Brenda, Claire's struggle to balance artistic integrity and commercial ego, or David being stuck in the dark, threatening world of the night of his carjacking while the world moves on around him. As expected after four seasons, this episode masterfully culminates each character's storylines and from them creates interesting new ones. Clarity is finally provided about the mysterious circumstances of Lisa's death - with the idea being presented that she could even be still alive throughout the season - in an honestly shocking twist regarding a secret affair within the Kimmel's own family. With the perpetrator's sudden suicide and the chaos following, it is the final nail in Lisa's (proverbial) coffin, allowing him to finally be ready for Brenda, as he seems to have needed to be for some time, allowing one silver lining to cling onto, and I think its time Nate had a good thing happen to him (although his reoccurring nightmares suggest otherwise).

I don't need to state at this point how attached I am to each of the characters, after being through so much with them it really does feel like I know each of them personally. Some particularly devastating moments from this season as a result were obviously David's incident and his associated PTSD, Rico's spiral of greed and the consequences he's suffering, and most surprisingly for me was George's subtle and politically-driven lapse into mental illness. It cuts even deeper after George and Ruth's recent troubles, and as soon as they are finally back together again George has crossed a line that he won't, alone, be able to reverse.

I still believe that the balance between emotion, drama and light-hearted, inspirational content is well maintained in Six Feet Under; it is a testament to how much the show feels like real life in the way that it isn't jarring when it can contain all of those different elements. I am beginning to feel a bit disheartened that I am coming to the end of what I can passionately say has been one of the best and most important TV shows I have ever watched, but I'm also excited to watch the final season because of how well people say the show ended. Still I can't say there won't be something missing from content I watch in the future.
