Desperate Housewives – Season 7, Episode 2

25 Oct

As I predicted last week, this had the feeling of the second of a two-parter, so there’s not an awful lot I feel is worth commenting on.

Susan continued to be the luckiest woman on Earth as Mike seemed to ignore the obvious and indulge in a little Afternoon Delight with his ‘perfect’ housewife. She’s was ridiculous as she gyrated around the vacuum cleaner, but what do you expect? This is DH.

Lynette had to adjust to Tom’s post-partum depression in the only way she can, making jokes about tender nipples and heavy flow days. Speaking of which, is Felicity Huffmanpregnant in real life? There were a lot of shots from the chest up and the props department supplied a lot of bags, laundry baskets and loose dressing gowns to seemingly cover her abdomen.

I feel the secret between Tom and Renée is a bit obvious – hopefully Marc Cherry has a trademark twist to put on it, otherwise I will be disappointed. Why do the writers feel the need to ruin the best hubby on the Lane by making him a love-rat, in Heat parlance?

Bree fancies the hot builder – totally didn’t see that one coming. Oh no, wait, I did, everyone did. Just writing about it bores me.He was right though: Bree does look good in yellow.

The highlight of the episode for me was Gabi’s fake sexsomnia. It was very funny; we can always rely on Eva Longoria to ham it up. The ending was heartbreaking though, as Carlos revealed the truth about Juanita. Oh Juanita.

In psycho-news, Paul Young married his prison pen-pal and is forcing all sorts of things on her. It can only end in disaster and, as she announced his arrival on the Lane, I hope Mrs McCluskey has something to do with it.

Thank goodness Lee and Bob are back on the scene. I hope they get back together, or at least are around a bit more in the future. I love their dynamic and was becoming really fond of them.

Things should get back on track next week as the proper complete episodes start. Fingers crossed.

    The Carlos/Gabi/Juanita story was definitely the best part of this episode for me. It’s what DH does best – farce combined with genuine emotional drama. I was surprised the revelation came so quickly, but I guess we will now see how the Solises deal with the fall-out from this. A search for their long-lost daughter, perhaps?

    So Paul is a bit creepy, just in case we’d forgotten. Ho hum.

    Surely the Bree/Keith and Tom/Renee stories can’t be as obvious as they have been made out to be. This is DH, right? There must be some OTT shock twist on the horizon with both of those (hopefully).

    Incidentally, in a case of art imitating life, I noticed this on Vanessa Williams’ Wikipedia page. Sound familiar?

    “Her second marriage was to former NBA basketball player Rick Fox. They married in September 1999 and have a daughter, Sasha, born in May 2000. After The National Enquirer published pictures of Fox kissing and hugging another woman in mid-2004, Fox’s representative announced that the couple had been “headed toward divorce” for over a year. A few months later in August 2004, Fox filed for divorce.”

      I imagine there will be some twists and turns along the way – I definitely hope for some!
