Synopsis by Brian J. Dillard
Some loved ones attempt to recover from their problems, while others struggle not to in this episode of HBO's Six Feet Under. Nikolai (Ed O'Ross) continues to recover from his broken legs, spending eight weeks on the Fisher family couch. But Ruth (Frances Conroy) is annoyed to learn that his injuries are the result of an altercation with the Russian mob. Meanwhile, new outpatient Billy (Jeremy Sisto) gives sister Brenda (Rachel Griffiths) some difficult news about his path to mental health and totally freaks Claire (Lauren Ambrose) out with a bizarre form of art therapy. Keith (Mathew St. Patrick) continues to suffer from ill temper and sleeplessness, but insists to a worried David (Michael C. Hall) that it's not the result of post-traumatic stress from his job (see the episode "The Invisible Women"). Keith, himself, frets about druggie sister Karla (Nicki Micheaux), who promises to go into rehab, but has some disturbing methods of doing so. The biggest medical news of all, however, comes from Lisa (Lili Taylor, originally seen in the episode "Driving Mr. Mossback"), who moves to L.A. and announces to ex-boyfriend Nate (Peter Krause) that she's pregnant. "Someone Else's Eyes" marked season two, episode nine of the made-for-cable drama. Series creator Alan Ball wrote this episode, whose weekly death segment features a businessman killed by the errant lunch box of a high-rise construction worker.
