Episode Info

As their marriage draws near, their respective sexual escapades come back to haunt both Nate (Peter Krause) and Brenda (Rachel Griffiths) in this episode of HBO's Six Feet Under. As her narcissistic mother (Joanna Cassidy) prepares to throw her a wedding shower, Brenda and her call-girl friend, Melissa (Kellie Waymire), head out to a "lifestyle party" in Orange County to hang with the swingers. Brenda drags herself to the shower the next morning, where a heart-to-heart from future mother-in-law, Ruth (Frances Conroy), causes her to be overwhelmed with guilt. Ruth, for her part, is reeling from what seems like rejection from the finally back-on-his-feet Nikolai (Ed O'Ross). She isn't reeling half as hard, however, as son Nate, who's facing unplanned fatherhood with somebody other than his bride-to-be. Nate tries to own up to his responsibilities, but he's so half-hearted about it that it simply drives Lisa (Lili Taylor) away. Meanwhile, Keith (Mathew St. Patrick) squabbles with boyfriend David (Michael C. Hall), but a more serious conflict with sister Karla (Nicki Micheaux) is just around the corner. As for Claire (Lauren Ambrose), she takes her art in an interesting new direction and ponders life at community college. "The Secret" marked season two, episode ten of the made-for-cable drama.
