New Desperate Housewives Thread 4/30 episode - Page 3

post #41 of 65
Ooooh I'll be sure to be home for the finale.

Nice to hear Teri Hatcher is a neat person. I really dislike her character--way too much of a bimbo.

Isn't anyone bothered by how creepy the Xiao May (sp?) storyline is? I feel like Gabby is absolutely abusing her trust and ignorance & Carlos????? That's almost like a pediphile...ewwwwwwwww

LOVE Bree as always. I think her character has the most depth, definitely.

Geez, I hate to admit this but we're pretty non-TV here except for 2-3shows. How sad is that my kids watch DH....

i finally got to sit down and watch the show today (taped). they said there are 2 more shows to the season.

i'm sooo sick of susan's character. i hope they turn her character around, maybe the fire will change her. i don't think that she will reunite with mike but i guess you never know. he seems alot smarter than that.

Is there a new thread I can't find? Or is no one talking about last night? OMG about Edie's *face*

Poor Bree. She kicks one child out because he slept with her boyfriend (in her own bed!) and the other runs off with a murder suspect! (Well, I think he's a murder suspect.)

I thought it was great how she matter of factly checked herself in to a psychiatric hospital - "I'm about to have a nervous breakdown."

I think Tom is cheating on Lynette. Or at least, the writers will have us think so until next season, when everything gets cleared up. It would be nice for ONE of the ladies of Wisteria lane to have a good marriage.

I certainly hope the writers have Susan's house fire turn her around and she becomes more independent.

I didn't realize that Xio Mang (sp?) is not the bio mom, that they used Gaby's egg.

After the way Edie acted, I kinda hope Susan turns her in.

Ok well I watched 2 episodes last night, first the one that aired and then last weeks. I literally sucked in my breath when I saw that Andrew had slept with Peter. I mean OMG I get the kid wanted to do it, but sex addict or not Andrew is a minor and OMG so wrong. I would have been hard pressed not to go get a knife if I were Bree and make sure Peter never has a sex problem again.

I think the storyline with Xio May is creepy. Ok so she is a virgin but now she is all doll up in skimpy nightgowns and feeding Carlos....." I won't tell" insert sexy voice here. My guess is that they did the implantation but something goes wonky as is bound to happen on DH and the egg that got used was Xio May's and the baby is hers.

Disgusting about Edie starting that fire. What Susan did was an accident this was totally deliberate. I hope Susan reports her.

And I was so sad for Linette. I mean what the hell else can it be but cheating. Your with another woman and your lying to your wife about it, even if no sex took place you are emotionally cheating. She should kick him to the curb...DONE!

I don't think she's quite as ignorant as she portrays. She wants to get rid of Gabby and have Carlos all to herself. Something is going to happen when that baby is born that is going to destroy Gabby.

I do too, but it isn't Susan's personality to do that.

Is Andrew younger than Danielle? She supposedly just turned 17 and I thought Andrew was older.

I'm not quite so sure that Tom is cheating. It seems what they showed is leaning towards that, but is almost too obvious. I never saw them kiss, or even touch each other. They just went upstairs and that dosn't necessarily mean anything. I was surprised that Lynette just left with the kids.

I think that XioaMae (sp?) will try to seduce Carlos and get rid of Gabi. Remember in the first episode with her, where she is trying on Gabi's jewelry and stuff? There was a comment about getting what you want, and stopping atnothing in the voiceover, witha closeup on teh housekeeper. $10 says she isn't a virgin either.

I think Susan should turn Edie in. No reason not to - besides, it's not like she didn't leave plenty of evidence around pointing at her. She didn't wear gloves for any of it - prolly still has the canister that was filled with gas in her garage or something. And now Susan has her on tape admitting it.

Bree did the right thing. Andrew may be her son, but he is an evil, manipulative a-hole. He is also wickedly immature and needs to grow the heck up. This also opens up the storyline for a meaner, older, stronger Andrew to come back to try again to take Bree out. I mean, he could wind up running with an even worse crowd or something... Who knows what'll happen to him? Danielle is a twit. She's gonna get whats coming to her...

Tom may or may not be cheating - Last week DH and I speculated on what he was really doing. Our thoughts ranged from "He is cheating!" to "secret half-sister from his fathers affair?" to "old friend from high school? ex-flame?" to "entirely other family in Atlantic city who knows nothing about Lynette and the boys, polar opposite too - 3 girls and an infant boy, all WELL behaved, quiet, good-mannered over-acheivers"


Next week had better gimme some answers.

It's the bizarro Lynette!

I think Gabby is in for it big time. How horrible that she sprayed her perfume all over the bedroom! She should have found a better way to keep Xao Mae in the country, or better yet, get a new housekeeper! She was really stupid to mention Carlos as a rich man, the kind Xao Mae should try to marry. Stupid Gabby, stupid!

It was a brandnew interview. I guess when she is pregnant in real life her medical / fertility problems on the show will be miraculously cured and she'll end up pregnant?

Don't yellow jackets live in the ground, not a hive?

I think they do, but if we're looking for plausibility on DH we're in big trouble. Nothing about the Susan/Edie thing makes sense. But it's pretty funny that Edie had her mouth full while Susan was trying to tape her, and she's all sticking her chest out and asking these obvious questions. It was pathetic.

I really don't see how Tom could've had a second family this whole time. He was a SAHD while Lynnette went back to work - how would he have explained that to the second family? And how would he have even stayed in touch with them? I don't know if he's cheating... it is possible, though not very likely, for him to have a good excuse for being at that woman's house, but whatever the reason I can't wait to find out what he has to say to his wife about it!

And that is pretty cool to hear about Teri Hatcher.

I don't think they ever said exactly why Gaby can't have a baby anymore, just some vague reference to her miscarriage having caused her current infertility. I thought the whole thing where she fell down the stairs and lost the baby was total BS anyway - falling down the stairs does not induce miscarriage in a healthy pregnancy - but now to say she can't have a baby because of it? Completely and totally lame. Seriously, I thought the whole 'falling downstairs and losing the pregnancy' as a plot device went out of style with all the improved medical understanding since the 1950's.

I mean, at least give it a real reason. It's not like the writers don't have access to stuff like that. All they had to do was say she miscarried because X medical condition that makes it highly unlikely for her to either get pregnent or to carry a baby to full term. Then when she gets pregnant IRL: Oh! It's a miracle! How hard is that??

Ok, I'm off my soapbox.

No, she isn't. According to the interview I read she'd like to be within the next few years though. I can't wait to see how they incorporate her pregnancy into the story line when/ if it happens in real life.

I agree with Serrendipity about the "falling down the stairs and losing the baby" story line. Completely implausible and overdone on TV.

Subbing....

And, is it just me or have did any of you catch the phrase on the commercials for next week where Gabby says "Carlos is dead."

Sounds like she'll be raising that baby alone!

I don't know if this was already mentioned, but for those of you that missed any of the last 3 DH episodes, ABC is showing the entire episodes, for free, on their website. You don't have to download anything or pay anything, it's free for everyone! Too bad they dont have the Grey's Anatomy episodes on there
