OK, DH got back on track tonight after last week’s HORRIBLE episode. Tonight’s was really good and helped move plot along.
First up, let’s talk about Bree (Marcia Cross) and Orson (Kyle MacLachlan). I’m really not much of an Orson fan…I’ve kind of always found him annoying. So, I was happy that after Bree’s conversation with Katherine (Dana Delaney) in the hospital, that Bree put two and two together and realized that Orson broke into their neighbor’s house. I just wish she also realized that he was responsible for Edie’s (Nicolette Sheridan) death. Adding to my dislike of Orson, is that he showed absolutely NO remorse for being responsible for Edie’s death. I’m happy that Bree’s son, Andrew (Shawn Pyfrom), is egging her on to get a divorce. (BTW: I think Andrew is SOOOO cute!)
Next up, Lynette (Felicity Huffman) and Tom (Doug Savant). I’m happy that this is one married couple that the show hasn’t broken up. However, tonight jealousy showed it’s ugly head in their relationship. First when Tom thought that it was inappropriate for Lynette to be showering in Carlos’ (Ricardo Antonio Chaviro) shower at work and then when Carlos saved Lynette after she hit her head in her own shower causing him to see her naked. Carlos is friends with both Tom and Lynette and is married to Gabby (Eva Longoria-Parker). Later it was Lynette’s turn to get jealous when she found out from Gabby that Tom had been flirting with another neighbor. Lynette and Tom made up at the end of the episode, but then Carlos told Lynette that she looked good naked at the VERY end of the episode. I really hope that Lynette and Carlos don’t hook up.
Now let’s talk about Katherine (Dana Delaney). This chick sure came off as desperate tonight, huh? She tells Mike (James Denton) that part of the reason she wanted him to move in was so that she felt she had more of a commitment from him. And she followed that up by telling him they’d be together forever. If I were Mike, I’d be running back into Susan’s (Teri Hatcher) arms screaming.
Which leads me to Susan. Oh, poor Susan. Always talks way too much. So, Susan goes to console Dave (Neal McDonough) who is grieving for his recently deceased wife, Edie. While consoling him, she ends up telling him that SHE was the one driving the car the night she and Mike had the accident, but they made it look like Mike was driving b/c they couldn’t find her license. This accident caused the death of a woman and her child, but Susan doesn’t realize that it’s Dave’s wife and child that were killed. The whole reason Dave moved him and Edie into town was b/c he wanted to get even with Mike for killing his wife and child. Now Dave realizes it’s Susan who he should be going after. James Denton, in an interview recently, said that by season’s end Dave will do something so horrible that there would be no other option than to kill him off. So, I’m hoping that doesn’t mean that Dave is planning on killing Susan and Mike’s cute son. However, I think it might be just that. And with Katherine learning she’s preggers by season’s end, this will cause good story for Katherine/Mike/Susan for next season.
All in all, I thought this was a great episode, and I’m really excited to see what’s going to happen next in the Dave storyline. What did you all think?
