Ugh - can you just imagine the feeling you would get if you INVITED a man into your home, specifically to talk to your child, and then found out he's a pedophile?

OMG - I think I would throw up.

And Parker now thinks he's awesome and cool and will WANT to spend time with him, and it's Lynnette's fault! (I mean, not the pedophile stuff, but the part about making the neighbor seem like a superhero!)

I honestly cannot imagine the feelings that would cause!

Exactly. I was lurking on televisionwithoutpity's forums, and they were all saying that they could see it coming from a mile away, but it really surprised me...and I'm a mom, lol. It's just disgusting. And yes, I realize it's a tv show...lol...but as we're all aware of, these people are out there, and this served as a reminder, I suppose. But yeah...I can only imagine how that must feel. Poor Lynette has been through hell.

The thing that gets me about the whole pedophile storyline is, the pictures were out in the open... doesn't that seem a little dumb? I mean if this guy did those things to ALL those boys, wouldn't someone have seen his "stash" by now with them all over the garage wall like that? And Lynette didn't call the cops or anything? I mean, come on!

I thought the pictures were in the basement. And he (the neighbor) just moved in, so I can accept that no one has seen the photos yet (except Lynette). I agree with others - she should call the police ASAP.

Did Lynette end up leaving the cake at new neighbor's house? Won't he KNOW that she's been in his house? Gee, this episode really left some loose threads.

Didn't Gaby already go through the whole "you can't be a top model again" angst a while back? When she did modelling at a car show? Season one, I think.

Carlos wasn't in this episode at all. And Gaby's divorce is final. Darn. I had hoped they would get back together.

OH, that nosey neighbor is really something. "You better wash the wrench - there's something on it." Like maybe BLOOD?!

Dixie Carter as Orson's mother was great! But a bit too close to my own mother for my dh to really enjoy it. He said "Oh, look. It's the Designing Women actor." But when she said something that could have been a direct quote from my mother, my dh actually had to leave the room!

Ann-Marita. I deleted my usual signature due to, oh, wait, if I say why, that might give too much away.

I'm really interested to see what'll happen next with the neighbor... They were hinting at something major...

This Gabby storyline is different because she went to NY.

Susan and Carl were pretty funny last night.

Loving Bree and Orson. And love what his mom adds.

When Lynnette was talking to the new neighbor and telling him she wanted to bake a cake for him, I looked at my dh and said, "Wow, he seems so .... normal!"

I guess that shows what I know! :

I actually started to like Orson last night. And I like his mother, too.

Did anyone else think that Edie looked fantastic when she first came on, wearing the black turtleneck and with her hair pulled back? She actually looked classy, not sleazy! I was loving her look in that scene.

I am wondering if the new neighbor really is a pedophile or if the pictures have anything to do with his sister. You'd think a pedophile would have that basement locked up.

I could not believe how great Edie looked.

I am not sure where they are going with the pedophile line. I bet it will turn out to be something else.

I loved Orsens line about his mother fitting on the mantel. I am curious as to what his secret is going to be. His manipulative mother reminds me of my MIL.

I was hoping they would have shown Kayla or at least mention where she is, I assumed she would move in with them? Nicoleete Sheridan just looks old to me, sorry, her outfits playing Edie don't help either. And I sooo thought Lynette was going to get caught being in the basement.

because it seems on any other tv show they have them in locked rooms.lol Also, depending on what exactly the issues with the sister are it is possible that they have a way for her to get in the basement.

She's staying at her grandma's. Lynette mentioned it to Susan & Gabby when she came home from the hospital.

Kayla was mentioned - in the beginning, Lynette says she told her kids that Kayla was staying with her Gramma now.

I for some reason don't really think the guy is a pedophile. Don't ask me why, but I don't think a pedophile leaves that much access to his dirty deeds. And, there's always room to have someone seem overprotective and make a mistake.

well, what would an explanation of that wall be beside him being a pedophile? Wouldn't that wall be classified as "kiddie porn"?
I'm definately listening if there are others who can think of an explanation. :

I'd love for it to be something awesome, like he teaches differently abled children to swim, or he is an extremely busy Big Brother. Or these are his illegitimate children (also very busy )

lynette goes to the police on the next show. i wonder what is in store for gabby - i really wanted her to work it out with carlos. i think susan actually seems more decent with this ian guy, not as much a prissy baby. i don't like how lame they are making mike tho. that's kind of annoying to me altho ultimately i would like to see him and susan reunited. when her character improves that is

I just think it's too cut and dry for the show. The second episode and they show he's a pedophile? I'm thinking they're going to come out with something more complex. Just like the black family they first showed the guy locked in the basement, and then showed that it was the son, then that the other guy was the actual killer anyway. I don't know if I'd classify a bunch of kids at a swimming pool (which seemed like it might be a larger pool with others around) in swimming trunks as kiddie porn. That's all.

I guess I did not get a close enough look. I thought they were in a bathtub.

Perhaps he's a swimming instructor. I too think there's more to this and with Lynette going to the police it's going to create a big blown out of control issue.

Yes, I thought Edie looked great too! I loved the outfit. I do think she'd look better if she gained ten pounds though! Same for Susan!

That guy is totally, really a pedophile. He just *happens* to have an awesome toy train set which leads children straight to his basement which is full of kid-cool things including a pinball machine... and just *happens* to have a wall full of pictures of little boys????

Lynette WILL call the police, I don't doubt it. She just didn't want to scare her son. And I believe they will definitely complicate it *somehow!*

I don't consider kids in swimming trunks/underwear (whichever, I thought I saw both but it was just a glimpse) kiddie porn, unless there is a huge COLLECTION of them on the wall of some unrelated mans basement. It's not quite the same thing as a parent having an adorable photo of their own child in the tub, is it? Hundreds of pics of little boys?

Well, it sure did make it so I can't wait till Sunday, whatever happens If I'm wrong I will eat my words, I promise!

Wow, I am first to post on last nights episode.

I really enjoyed. I thought Lynette was inspired to go to the nosy neighbor with the tale.

Everything Susan does irks me to no end.

Carlos moving in on Mike with the best friend story was hysterical

Dixie Carter's character is great. Although I am wondering where mom is going to stay now that Bree kicked Orson out.

I have to agree, its hilarious that Mike has all these new "old friends"!

Susan, Susan, Susan! Ian is MARRIED, the 2nd his wife wakes up, you're outta there! I was on the butlers side (he didn't have to be so snarky), but he had affection for Jane and was hurt to see Ian with someone new. Plus it could be quite awkward, does he now have to keep a secret if Jane awakens or risk losing his job? Not a good situation to put him in. My prediction for this storyline: Ian proposes to Susan, she accepts. Right before they say their vows: Jane and Mike come running in, screaming "I got my memory back!"

I think that Gabby is going to want a baby even more than ever after working with the girls. I think Carlos moved in across the street to keep an eye on her and nip any romances in the bud that she might start. I bet anything she wound up pregnant from her last liason with Carlos!

I actually like Susan (yes, I realize I'm the only one ) but this Ian relationship is so dumb because it's doomed. The only way they could end up together would be if the wife died, which is way too gloomy for a show that's half-comedy. So the whole thing just feels like manufactured drama and yet another way to keep Susan and Mike apart. However, my Ever After prince is really hot so I won't complain too much.

The Carlos/Mike thing was great! I was LOL.

Me too! My DH was in the room, but on his laptop with his headphones on, so not really paying attn. He is familiar enough with the show to know who the characters are, but not much else.

He happened to look up and listen when that whole scene was going on, and said, "Oh, wow, I had forgotten what good friends they were!"

I laughed and said, "They weren't! I think this is the first time they've spoken to each other!"

I loved it when Tom was over for the game. Hilarious!!

I also enjoyed the guys coming over for the game, it's so funny that now they are "friends".

I'm interested to know where this whole neighbor thing is going, I'm sure there is something else going on that we will find out eventually.

So what did Mike do with all his money? In the beginning he had huge stacks of cash, the cops would of mentioned it if they found some. I don't think that he would of spent everything since he wasn't really a plumber, he knew he had to live off of it.

There is no way to happiness, happiness is the way.
