  • What scared you most

    (Sorry for the bad english, i'm italian) This season is ... brilliant, really. The way that it reminds me the first season IS brilliant, even if the stroylines are not so fresh as always ... by the way, this year is better that the last two years with the Bolens and Dave.

    Now let's see what's happen in this episode:

    Renee: seductive, fresh and a good character as always, she decide to make a Halloween Party , and nothing more; anyway, in her small part, she's very good and her Marilyn costume was amazing :D and the scene between her and the gay guy with the same costume was funny;

    Gabrielle: i don't like her story because i don't like that she prefer Grace than Juanita ... poor child... Gaby is a very vulnerable character , and maybe that's why I like her so much, but she must learn how to be smarter than she is xD and sometimes i say "oh poor Carlos";

    Bree: i really like the choice of the writers to make the Keith-Bree couple very fast, because it has got a very big potential: Bree , with Keith, try a new kind of relactionship funny and courious, because she's not a "ice soul" anymore. But when i found out that Keith was in prison i thought "No... another sad story for Bree, no." And, one more time, i must clap my hands for the writers, because Bree accept it and admits that also she has got a problem. Good, good Bree :D but i have a feeling that Keith will cheat on Bree with the girl in his apartment;

    Lynette: her story in this episode was very good, like the other storylines that she's got in this season till now. Tom's mother, in fact, has got some memory lapses but Tom won't accept it because he's scared, because afterall she's his mother!! But Lynette , slowly, helps her husband and finally the Tom's mother, crying, leave Wisteria Lane for go in an hospital... sad story but it fix very well with the title of the episode. And the Halloween costume of Lynette was awesome :D

    Susan and Paul: another good choice of the writers, because Susan decides immediately to tell all to Mike, and fortunatly he accept all quite good ... for Susan. But for Paul no, because Mike wants to kill Paul, but fortunatly Susan stop him and she goes to visit Paul.

    But... when she win the game, Paul tell to the school about her sexy work and then she's fired. And then arrive one of my favourite scenes. Susan, angry, in her HILARIOUS Halloween costume and with a clave, penetrate in Paul's house and she try to kill him ( LOL ) but a scary Beth stop her with a gun.

    All in all good episode (Beth we love you but we can't understand what it's you DAMN PLAN) and the storylines explain very well the title, and i can't wait for the next episode!

  • excited and scared

    Except for the scene with Susan attacking Paul with that weapon, this was a really good episode of Desperate Housewives, something that we have not seen since the season really started. All of the storylines are starting to come together and we are really starting to get some exciting things happening on Wisteria Lane. From Tom's mother having her mental dimentia issues, to Gaby really having a problem on her hands with her biological daughter, the show is finally achieving what it hoped for when they started planning out the arcs. Now they have to keep this momentum going and not give us a filler episode next week.moreless
  • A great HALLOWEEN episode

    This was a really enjoyable episode of desperate housewives, i really liked the theme of halloween, it was quite refreshing seems the show has only done one halloween epsisode,

    Their were some really great scenes in this episode espically susan attacking paul with a klub which was just a fantastic and really memorable scene

    I also enjoyed the lynette storlyine this week it was actually pretty sad to see that toms mother had pretty much lost her mind but the writers dealt with the storlyine well

    Overall excited or scared was a really good episode of housewives as season 7 continues to impressmoreless
  • The intensification of so many storylines! Definitely this season's best!

    I was thoroughly impressed by this Thanksgiving episode, with Susan especially. The scene depicted in this episdoe's summary, where she atacks Paul Young with a caveman's club was awesome! That was so hilarious, and I just couldn't stop laughing!

    Gabby's storyline is also getting very interesting, as she tries to find a balance between her biological daughter and the faughter she has raised.

    Similarly, Lyntette's storyline with her mother-in-law was very good, and that could be the end of it tonight.

    Definitely think that this was the best episode of this season so far, and I really hope this standard is maintained! Keep it up, guys, and I can't wait for more!moreless
  • Quite a good episode.

    I'm not usually a fan of themed episodes, but this episode was actually quite a surprise. Renee has a halloween party, Tom finally accepts that his mother is losing it mentally, Bree and Keith find out more about each other, and Gaby dotes on Grace, causing Juanita to get jealous and suspicious.

    The standouts for this episode include Susan and Paul's fight near the end, and Juanita being jealous of Gaby's affection for Grace.

    I understand where Gaby is coming from, but I sympathize with Juanita because it is clear that Gaby is neglecting her. I can't wait to see where this storyline goes.

    Renee and Lee both dressing up as Marilyn Monroe was, I think, the funniest part of the episode.moreless
