  • 8.14 "Get Out of My Love"

    Written by: Cindy Appel

    Directed by: James Hayman


    This is the first time since season two when the 2nd half of the season is a lot better! Did not expect that ever again on DH lol. Julie still wants to get the baby up for adoption, but Susan overhears her conversation on the phone with the baby-daddy and she spies on them. It's Porter Scavo! Yes, he cannot keep his friend in his pants. But there is a twist - he wants to keep the baby and Susan is siding with him now. Only Lynette refuses to help raising the little girl. Gaby takes in Roy who was kicked out of the house by Karen. And she is selfish again because he seems to be good at yelling at her bitchy daughters, so she wants to keep him around for 2 weeks until Carlos returns from the rehab. She is keeping him from Karen who is diagnosed with a methastatic lung cancer, poor lady :( and she does not want Roy to know because he had to watch his first wife die. Bree & Orson together. Such a sweet little picture from earlier seasons. But he was up to something. He is actually the one behind killing Chuck Vance and sending threat notes to Bree. Ouch! 8,5/10

  • The "Orson" plot

    Bree really does have all the luck with men (*deadpans*), but for some reason I was convinced that Orson was "the one". At first, I was really happy that he was back in the plot- but now I wish the writers had never written him back in. And how could Orson have written the letters? That would have meant that he wrote the letter to Mary Alice, too- but he wasn't even around in the first season.moreless
  • Beyond doubt the best episode of the season thus far!

    All I can say about this one is WOW!

    First of all, discovering the identity of Julie's baby's father was unbelievable! I could never have seen int coming! This will certainly make things very, very interesting for both Susan and Lynette in the coming episodes!

    But oddly enough, that was only the second most exciting storyline of the day! I suspected this ever since Orson returned at the end of last week, but for it to actually happen, it is astounding! This is huge! And it will have huge ramifications in the pepisodes to come! I can't believe it! No doubt he's the one to run over Chuck Vance as well! It furthered his agenda in two waysQ!

    In other news, Gabby's storyline with Mr McClusky was a filler really. Or so it seeme.d It was extremely funny, easpecially the look of Juanita's and Celia's faces when Gaby told them to make the tart disappear!!! LOL!!!

    But the storyline proved not to be a filler, as a huge shocker is revealed for Mrs McCluisky at the end.

    This is amazing! Best episode isn a long, long time! I loved every minute ofit, and I can't wait for more! Keep it up, guiys, and I hope wha'ts left of this show will be as amazing as ever!!! <333moreless
  • Great!

    Great twist, wasn't expecting the revelation at the end. The only thing that bugged me was Gabby. Keeping Roy and Karen apart for her own selfish reasons when Karen's not well.
  • Get Out of My Life

    Get Out of My Life was a superb episode of Desperate Housewives and I really enjoyed watching this episode because it had a lot of awesome character and plot development. It was slowly revealed who had sent Bree the note like Mary Alice's and who knew the girl's secret. I also enjoyed finding out who the father of Julie's baby is and it was interesting! Renee and Ben sort of make up, and the loan shark continues to be shady. I certainly look forward to watching the next episode to see what happens!!!!!!!moreless
