  • A great kick-off to the year with multiple secrets abounding.

    That it's Gabby raising a child not her own is a surprise but oddly fitting and ironic considering her uncertainity over motherhood. That she and Carlos are now keeping secrets from each other is an interesting bit (and man, Carlos looks different without the beard) and promises some nice tension throughout the year. So Paul is back and fitting how it's because Felicia finally got found out. His talk of a "plan" seems off but then, after ten years in jail, he's entitled to be intense. Felicia having a plan of her own is also interesting and promises a twisted path to follow. The Susan plot looks like some dumb comedy but might be fun although I hope they get back on the Lane soon. Also like how Bree handles Orson's departure and moving on with her life and new strength. The big one is the arrival of Vanessa Williams who fits in perfectly from her first scene. Loved the tension between her and Lynette and her revelations of how wild Lynette was. We all saw it coming that Renee got dumped and will be interesting to see a woman obviously used to the high life having to bring herself down to the suburbs. Williams is just a great addition and can't wait to see her get into some wicked fun. Overall, looks like the kick-off to another great season that should improve on last year nicely with some new faces and tensions.
