Episode Summary

Believing she's on a winning streak after undergoing a successful kidney transplant, Susan begins to think she's invincible and starts to gamble with the little money she and Mike have, convinced she can't lose. Meanwhile, Bree desperately tries to stop Andrew from admitting to Carlos that he was the one who accidentally killed his mother years ago, and Renee helps introduce Lynette to the world of high class, frivolous shopping now that Tom's bringing in the big bucks with his new, high-powered job. Felicia (guest star Harriet Sansom Harris) moves back into the neighborhood and tries to convince an extremely suspicious Paul that she wants to bury the hatchet and try to be civil to one another.moreless

  • Finally a great episode.

    This is a really nice improvement from the previous 5 episodes which did not really work for me. I think a lot of stuff happened in this episode and it makes it memorable because Carlos finally found out about Andrew driving over his mother in season 1. The scenes in the cabin were very well made, but it seemed a little weird how Gaby & Bree spilled the beans to Carlos when they feared he has killed Andrew.

    Felicia is finally back on Wisteria Lane and she pretends to be OK now. And Paul is really starting to trust her motives. She has something up her sleeves. And she is creepier than ever.

    Susan and her luck in gambling was just a filler, but it was nicely done and mostly for a good reason. It was very natural. She has survived some pretty rough things and other people did not and now she questions God how is it even possible.

    Lynette and Renee went on a shopping spree and she is planning a dinner with Tom. She is surprised to find out that he has no time for her. Boring.moreless
  • An old friend that i am growing tired of....

    I've been with desperate housewives since it's first episode and fell off when Gabby married that Victor guy and during the crazy Dave storylines and Edie's death but i've been back full force and I realize, I don't enjoy DH as much as I used to but it's like an old friendship. You've outgrown it but you don't want to let it go.



    I am so glad that kidney thing has been tied up. That has really annoyed me. I used to hate susan but i've loved the fact that she has always been the source of comedy. She rarely ever gets a dramatic storyline(aside from this one). Her plot tonight would have been good but i didn't like the gambling mixed in with it. But at the same time, it kind of showed that she was repressing her grief over Beth and her friend Dick's deaths and I guess I can kind of understand it. In my opinion, the best plot of the night. And I hardly ever like susan.


    Lynette in Season 1 was great and over the years I've grown tired of her. This episode and last episode saw her and Tom being introduced into the corporate life. The very same thing she pushed Tom into....Now she is quickly seeing that all that glitters is not gold. For once, she has pushed Tom too much and now she is starting to deal with the consequences. But i just can't get into this storyline.

    3)Bree, Gabby, Andrew, and Carlos---It took seven seasons for this to FINALLY come to play about him killing his mother. 8 seasons...which is what like 11 or so years in desperate housewives time? Gabby is my favorite character but this storyline just seems....flat. It took Andrew's alcoholism to finally get him to tell the truth. So if he had not became a drunk, they would not have EVER told Carlos?

    4)Felicia and Paul--I miss this storyline about when he went to jail for her sisters murder but Felicia is just way too creepy. Not even in a cool villain way, the woman who plays her is just creepy to me. i do like to see Paul squirm but seriously, let's this storyline, paul and Felicia please die this season.


    What is her purpose of being on this show? She is like a black verison of gabrielle....Notice at the poker game.

    All in all, a decent episode I just miss DH in it's glory daysmoreless
  • 4/17

    Carlos puts his foot down. Finally, he is not just a doormat for all these female characters. Obviously, he is going to forgive Bree, probably sooner rather than later as this show refuses to go dark for very long, but I look forward to more vitriol behavior next week.

    This was one of the best episodes in awhile for D House. The Lynette and Tom plot was a little disappointing in my mind, but I think that was just the start of an issue that will trouble their marriage until the season finale. I am sure that will get better over time.

    Susan's storyline was disappointing as usual. They just don't know what to do with her anymore.

    But the Bree, Andrew and Carlos stuff was good. I am hoping that Paul can just kill Felicia already though, as she irks me to no end.moreless
  • Moments in the Woods

    Moments in the Woods was a perfect episode of Desperate Housewives because so many different things were going on with all of the characters which kept the episode interesting. I enjoyed watching this episode as Felicia began the next stage of her revenge on Paul who has fallen into a state of disrepair. It was also fun to see Andrew want to do the right thing by telling Carlos the truth about who killed his Mother and Bree desperately trying to protect him. Lynette starts seeing the perks and costs of Tom's new job. Susan was really touched by her friend from the hospital who tells her she is on a winning streak which seems to be true. I look forward to watching the next episode of Desperate Housewives!!!!!!!moreless
