So after a few weeks of no shows, “Desperate Housewives” returned this Sunday (these breaks are getting ridiculous). There really are only a few shows left. It’s sad because I feel like the show is finally getting good again. Well except for the fact that Mike is still dead! I really despise that they did this. Why couldn’t they have given Susan and Mike a happy ending? How many weeks to we have to watch Susan and MJ being unhappy and depressed? Well, not too many more really. But how are we to get any kind of a happy ending here? Will Susan suddenly learn she’s pregnant?
Bree did what Bree did best this week, she fell for her lawyer. Bree always seems to be attracted to opposites, and he’s as opposite of Bree as one can get. I do hope this relationship will work out for Bree. All the girls deserve their happy ever after.
Lynette has been flirting with Tom’s Boss, and old work acquaintance of hers who always had a thing for her, and thinks Tom is a fool for dropping her. He is bending over backwards to make her happy by punishing Tom and Jane by making Tom work late, which makes Jane very very angry! However he went a little overboard and is planning to send Tom to India for a year! Yeah, not cool, at all. I was enjoying Lynette versus Jane, but this story is a bit too nutty right now. I’m sure Lynette also doesn’t want Tom gone for a year. Even if they don’t get back together, she needs help with the kids. We did learn that Tom still hasn’t signed the divorce papers, so I guess that means there is still hope for them.
Finally Carlos and Gabby were at odds over a client of Gabby’s who recently came into a lot of money. Carlos poached Gabby’s client and convinced her not to spend her money on clothes, but to donate it to the charity he worked with. Basically the war over their client made her run away, as she thought they were both nuts. In the end Gabby told Carlos he tried to steal her client because he’s a shark, that’s what he does and why she loves him. He wanted to change, but she said he was a shark, he can’t change that. I have a feeling this little talk is going to lead Carlos to confessing and saving Bree. His desire to be a better man will drive him to do the most heroic thing he can (though that is debatable, since letting Bree take the fall for everyone else is really cowardly).
Oh . . . and I still want Mike back!
