The latest episode of "The Neighbors" dealt with death. Much like almost everything else, the aliens have little understanding of what death is. When the neighborhood gardener suddenly dies, Larry can't accept it. He believes that death is just another problem that he can solve. Naturally, his quest leads to some strange results for everyone. Here is a recap of the latest episode, "Juan of the Dead."
Juan is the neighborhood gardener, and everyone on the street loves him. But when Juan sees Jackie in her alien form, he has a heart attack and falls off a ladder. Not surprisingly, Larry and Jackie know nothing about death. In fact, they think that sleeping is the same thing as dying. Larry thinks he understands it but causes a panic in the neighborhood when he tells everyone that he doesn't know when death comes. Marty and Debbie try to calm everyone down, but they have little luck. To make matters worse, Max overhears them and is immediately upset about Juan's death.
After Larry decides that they can't be friends with the Weavers because of their potential to die, Debbie calms him down by inviting him to the funeral. The aliens all attend the service, albeit in Hawaii-themed clothing. After Debbie delivers a kind eulogy, the neighbors say words of their own. Of course, most of what they say is inappropriate for a funeral. While they all talk about Juan, Larry is determined to figure out death. Much to everyone's shock, he does this by bringing Juan back from the dead.
Larry celebrates his achievement as everyone watches Juan through the window. Juan isn't the same, and he moves around like a robot. While Max is confused about what is happening, the Weavers try to figure it out. Larry explains that he used a vile of medicine from his home planet in order to revive Juan. He says that he can't ever revive anyone again; he only had one vile of medicine. Meanwhile, Max hides out on the roof because he's confused about a lot of things. Debbie talks with him for awhile, and later tells Marty that she's worried about his own mortality. She tells Marty that he doesn't like his jokes about his poor heart, and he reassures her by insisting that he will be around for a long time.
After talking to his wife, Marty sees Larry sitting in the street. Larry confesses that he's concerned about death and what will happen to his kids if something happens to him. Marty promises that they'll be taken care of should the worst happen. Larry offers the same about Marty's kids, but he says that his sister will take care of it. At the end of the episode, Marty and Larry send Juan away on a bus.
