Spoiler alert. While I’m probably the last person to watch the season finale of Brothers & Sisters, if you follow the show AND haven’t watched the season finale, I’m about to ruin it for you.
About a week ago, as my wife and I were getting caught up on Brothers & Sisters, I realized how much I enjoy watching Rob Lowe. He was one of my favorite characters on West Wing, and he’s grown into such a great character on Brothers & Sisters.
It always seems like Brothers & Sisters has another dilemna around the corner. In the second-to-last episode of the season, the family has to close down Ojai foods. But, as we close the season finale, the family discovers a gigantic aquifer in some land they own. Hurrah!
Er, um, no. The season ends with a car crash involving two carfuls of Walkers. In the span of the final 90 seconds, we find out Saul is HIV-positive, and Robert McCalister (Rob Lowe) dies.
