Felicity Huffman is an amazing actress, for sure. Has anyone seen her in TransAmerica? She did an amazing job in that, too.

I thought that Susan's "fat suit" was really bad. I'm surprised the show/ ABC didn't get more flack for that. She looked healthy- minus the ridiculous amount of chin fat they gave her. She just looked awful because she wore *ahem* revealing clothes. I was disappointed with that because I love a good fat suit on TV.

The episode was really good though. I like how they played out the scenarios, but not for nothing, it helped the characters make choices.

I agree with all of y'all that Felicity Huffman has been amazing in these episodes. While so much of this show is ridiculous and frivelous, her character and acting continues to bring it down to our level helping us relate to the issues she's going through.

I can't wait for Sunday's episode. It looks fun!

This thread is kind of dying....better bump it up!

Did you guys watch last night? I thought it was okaaay. It is kind of one of those middle-ish episodes where not a lot happens. The whole therapist theater thing was dumb but at least now maybe they are done with the therapy? It was kind of a boring story line.

me, dh and 2 boys = our family (oh and a cat...who is also a male...lol)

Yawn. I don't know. The whole saving the earth thing seems kind of contrived. "What, I should just sit and watch her defile our earth?" It just wasn't convincing, although I like her character otherwise. But I do believe that she's the one who strangled those two women - the first was her husband's lover and the second, she saw flirting with her husband (sorry, I don't remember any names at all!)
Bree (there's one name, heehee) and her husband, yawn..
You could tell in the beginning that that stripper was going to end up living with what's-her-name..
Meh. After a week off last week, I was hoping for some more excitement!

Pretty boring episode but, some freaking hilarious lines

"why don't we just crack a bottle of champagne across her pelvis and wish him a bon voyage?" That cracked me up!

Ok so I saw previews for the next show...

But here's a question... Is the friend who strangled the ex finance the same one that possibly strangled Susan's daughter?

There seem to be a lot of loose ends and nothing being wrapped up!

not only which, i felt it was irrelevant really to anything and more of a dark filler than developing characters or storylines.

finally caught up online. totally depressing episode. "how are monsters created? by other monsters."

for some wack reason, i do feel sorry for eddie. I have this vision of the 4-yr-old version of him getting caught and being dragged off in a paddywagon with a sad puppy dog look on his face.

That was the worst episode ever. I don't even know why I kept watching it!
Last nights was ok, it seems like they're going a bit overboard? I mean, a terrorist, a serial killer, and now insinuating something with Mike of all characters? Like the show is just grabbing at straws now, but I'm still watching....

We are watching it still. Yes -- the cliffhanger sort of freaked me out with Lynette. I don't get the deal with Mike -- was there a mystery around him or was it just that people hadn't paid him back...

I'm still enjoying it. I like all of the danger in Wysteria... (insert creepy music) I wonder how Lynette is going to get out of there. I'm guessing labor, young male freaking out, feeling maternal love for Lynette and letting her go and turning himself in to get the help she convinces him that he needs. Gabby is going to have to save Angie and Danny somehow, but I don't know how that is going to happen, unless she just tells Nick and he somehow escapes the hospital. I love chessy shows like this!

Either this or Lynette is going to fight back (pregnant and all!) She's a bad@$$ like that.

very creepy ending with lynette. i'm a little disappointed how the storyline came about ... something that sinister you'd think they would have built up the killer's character a little bit more over the season.

Ohhhh I just finished watching it!

That was GOOOOOOD! Best episode they have had in a while I think...

I wonder what will happen between Bree and Gabby!

I am REALLY hoping next season picks up from *rightthere* no breaks or pauses!And MaryEllen's Husband is back!? How is that going to work?

And who do you think had their child switched at the hospital... and why would someone do that... I mean why?

My guess is that it was Gabby's daughter Celia who was switched. I always thought she was poorly cast because she doesn't look like she could pass as a member of their family. Whenever her and Juanita are in the same scene I'm like, wtf was the casting director thinking? They don't look like sisters at all. So maybe it was intentional because this story line was planned.

I was thinking Bree at first, like Sam is really her son and not Andrew. But, I don't know if their dates of birth are the same. Maybe MJ or Celia if not the Sam/Andrew switch.

Oooooh, that would have been good. Except that I believe Sam is older. He'd been conceived when Rex left to start his life with Bree, right?

I'm thinking it's MJ...then Susan & Mike will get a settlement from the hospital, which will bring them back to Wisteria Ln.



So, I haven't watched from the beginning of the series. Can somebody give me a quick run-down of Mary Alice's husband and why it's a big deal that he's back? Thanks.

I think it is MJ...and why would you let a murderer hold your newborn. I forget the storyline of MaryAlice's hubby...I will have to read the wiki...I kinda think Gabby shouldn't/won't be mad b/c she hated Carlos' mother and her death was a real favor...now Carlos on the otherhand will be devastated
