You don't think the keeping the baby and getting married were part of her upbringing with Bree? Good girls have the baby and get married to the daddy, right?

I think it has to do with her self worth being wrapped up with acceptance by men - if he married her she would feel better about her status in the World. That's really sad.

I don't think it has anything to do with her wanting to be perceived as a good girl, especially by Bree whom she doesn't seem to have any respect for (probably blames her for her father's death).

I got that feeling, too, during Sunday's show. Only I don't fear it -- I think it will be fun! More Edie, please. I am bored with Bree and her family.

Hey, GREAT idea about Gabby & Carlos and Danielle's baby! But, you know, it'll only complicate w/many crises.

Take the time to heal from your marriage before you move on with someone else. Make a list of all the qualities you would like in a new partner and then work on growing that way yourself. ~mandib50

Have we been subjected to reruns for the past two weeks? I'm not sure if that is the case or I don't know how to work my new VCR.:

Yes, it's been re-runs.

It looks like it will be yet another rerun. It's the one where Bree meets her new mother-in-law, played by Dixie Carter.

Ok, I have been trying desperately (yes, pun intended) to find the next episode. I kept thinking that whomever is putting them online has failed me; but I think I'm wrong (dear god let me be wrong, lol).

Are we all on the same page here, that the last episode on TV was s03e16...the one where Mike bet away telling Susan the truth? (Which, if my memory serves me correctly, is the same one that Rex narrated).

Where do we stand mama's????

It looks like that is correct - season three only has through episode 16. And they are playing yet another rerun this week.

I guess that having Marcia Cross unavailable for shooting really messed with their story lines, and they are having to completely rewrite and start all over on the rest of this season's episodes. Seems rather silly, since they've known that she was pregnant for quite some time.

Which episode had Edie coming on to Carlos??

Thanks! Now I'll have to go back and watch it online.

Thanks. I didn't think I had missed one, but there were several clips that I didn't recognize. Like Edie and Carlos, and Gaby with the rich guy in the car when he tells the driver to close the partition.

I thought last night's show was boring.

Gaby and Victor... blah blah blah
Susan and Ian... well it was funny when she set her future MIL on fire and caught her future FIL dressed in her lingerie.
Susan and Mike... whatever.
Edie and Carlos... OK, kind of hot.
Bree? Alas there was no Bree on the show.
Scavo Pizzaria... blah blah blah.

I like the potential storyline between Edie and Carlos. Gabby is too materialistic for my liking. Lynnette is too controlling most of the time and makes her dh look like he is henpecked.

The Gaby stealing stuff storyline was just dumb and annoying. Like, silly and farfetched like 80s movies.

The rest was boring.

The very end with Edie talking to Carlos as she took off her clothes made me cry. I'm a little weepy lately, but every once in awhile there is still something left on this show that your average woman can relate to. I related to that a lot.

It will be interesting to see if Edie does start to change her ways.

Since when did Edie & Gabby become such good friends that they go shopping together?

There were some funny parts to the show, but something odd about it too.

I foudn the episode to be okay. Gabbie stealing the clothes was lame. I don't like Ian. I thought the pre-nup storyline was ridiculous. In the case of marrying a family with old money I would not have a problem with a pre-nup (but I guess that is just me). I don't like Carlos and Edi together (although I did love what she said) but it is because he belongs with Gabbie.

Lynette and Tom make me laugh because there is so much of my marraige in theirs. Even dh watched last night and said "I know which housewife I am married to).

well call me a sucker but i still enjoyed this episode : i'm annoyed by ian and susan tho, ian has such potential but he's kind of a baby. i kept waiting for lynette to get creative with the tshirt, cut it down the middle and tie it in a knot to make a sexier work uniform i really like tom so i hope they make it. on that show with all the clips they had a clip with lynette at the restaurant with a male staff member and it looked pretty intimate - did that happen already or is that yet to come?

did anyone catch the preview for next week? dh said that edie's son overhears carlos telling someone else that edie is bad in bed i think he's pulling my leg but it would sure make for an interesting storyline

But Lynette didn't like the uniform because she was superstitious about the color-- and she was right about it in the end. Something bad did happen. Idk, in our family I am the superstitious one and my dp has learned to respect that.

I totally was with Lynette about the uniform color. Why the heck didn't Tom even run it by her before he picked such a color in the first place? He annoys me a lot of the time, but I *adore* Lynette.

I loved Gabby & Eddie getting more screen time, altho I'm not happy that Eddie & Carlos have hooked up... I'm still holding out for he & Gabby to get back together.

Meanwhile, am I the only one that didn't even miss Bree? I completely forgot that she wasn't on the show until I read a review about the show on Monday.:

No I forgot Bree too and she is my favorite! DId you all see the preview where Gabby is talking to Edie (I think) about making out in the limo with the mayor guy and Edie asks if it was a town car or a stretch and Gabby says "Stretch of course - I'm not a complete slut"
