Episode Summary

Lynette feels her mother (guest star Polly Bergen as Stella) is marrying Frank (guest star Larry Hagman), an abrasive and obnoxious man, for all the wrong reasons, and thus tries to talk her out of it. Meanwhile, Carlos becomes concerned when he learns about Gabrielle's obsession with her doll, and Bob and Lee hire a non-maternal Renee to decorate their newly adopted girl's bedroom. Bree runs into Keith's ex-girlfriend (guest star Rochelle Aytes as Amber) and learns some shocking news about his past, and Susan tries to befriend a curmudgeonly man (guest star Gregory Itzin as Dick) who has given up on ever finding a kidney donor. In the meantime, Paul appears to have some plans for Beth (guest star Emily Bergl), as he books a trip for the two of them to a remote cabin in the woods.moreless

  • Another interesting episode, particularly for Bree and Gabby!

    This was a very good episode, getting some vry interesting twists for two of the main characters.

    Firstly, the Bree storyline got really interesting, really fast. A storyline which wasn't going too well for the last few weeeks has suddenly become very interesting and I think it is now going to get even better!

    Additionally, things got very interesting for Gabby, as we see just how much trauma she is still suffering about Grace and everything that happened with her.

    The Susan storlyine was also interesting, although this was focussed entirely on a guest character, which I found quoite weird.

    All up, a great episode! The storylines are getting better and better, and I can't wait to see what will happen next! Great work, and keep it up Desperate Housewives!moreless
  • Nothing special......

    Im still here was another good episode from season 7 of Desperate Housewives but once agian it wasnt a great one either... Most of the storylines this week were once agian fairly weak...

    Gaby's obession with her doll continued this week and once agian it freaked me, im glad that that story seems to have ended now. Lynettes storyline was also weak it was nice to see her mother on the show agian but the circumstance with the whole wedding thing was just stupid and lazy.

    Bree,s storyline was also fairly poor the revalation that Keith has a child it just pretty pooring and the fact that she pretty much just paid off the mother of Keiths child to keep her mouth shut was just predictable and kind of reminded me of when susans send zach away in season 2. The stongest storyline this week was most definitly Susan's i really felt sorry for her having to do the dialysis, i thought her relationship with the other patient was really nice the last scene were she comforts him was really sweet, Renee was once agian pretty boring in this episode unfortnatly the Renee chracter has completly floped i think she needs to go the way that Edie did. The mystery was ok this week as paul plans to kill beth but changes his mind when he gets some information which suggests that zach may be the one who shot paul, i hope it isnt zach though, a little to predictable me thinks, Overall a pretty weak epeisodemoreless
  • I'm Still Here

    I'm Still Here was a really superb episode of Desperate Housewives. I really enjoyed watching this episode as Susan tried to befriend an angry dialysis patient, and there are some touching scenes with them. Lynette has to deal with the fact her mother wants to marry a racist and obnoxious man seemingly for his money, meanwhile Gaby is becoming more obsessesed with her doll and Carlos finds out. She had a crazy fit near the end that was sad. Paul believed Beth may have tried to kill him after learning her true identity, luckily for her he discovers in time that it was some one much closer!!!!!!!moreless

    A fun episode of Desperate Housewives here. Nothing too spectacular, but a decent enough episode. I liked the carjacking, and I hope that it is the end of Gaby obsessing over the doll. Eva Longoria could pull off a psycho storyline, but this is not the right way to do it.

    The Lynette scenes were good, but that rarely is not the case. Her dry wit is especially good when she has to deal with Stella. This was a throwaway storyline, but it led to some funny moments so I'll allow it.

    The Susan scenes I did like, and I think the whole organ donation thing is way too dark, even for this show. Desperate Housewives ratings are down and I think this is at least part of the reason: the show has been really upsetting as of late if you think about it.moreless
  • Lots of Character Development

    First: Stella's back! and she marrying.... Larry Hagman? Larry plays obnoxious Frank very well and the moment when Stella revealed to Lynette Frank and her needed each other was quite an emotional moment.

    Susan is having troulb making friends with Dick at her treatment. however, she soon finds a way to comfort him in another emotional and well acted scene. Teri Hatcher is doing some fine acting.

    I felt a bit sorry for Mark Moses during a couple of scenes especially when he realised the gun Beth found was the same one Mary Alice used....

    Bree and Keith's relationship is in trouble. I thought nothing could break up this happy couple - I was wrong. Shame, i was beginning to like him.

    Rennee has a nice side! LOL the bedroom she does for Bob and Lee is beautiful and its nice to see Vanessa contract with her Ugly Betty Counterpart.

    But Eva Longoria steals the show. Her emotional breakdown over her doll was very well done.moreless
