Episode Summary


Susan tells Porter that she'll set up a nursery and watch over his and Julie's baby after Lynette firmly tells her son that she will not help raise her future granddaughter. Meanwhile, Orson convinces Bree to go away with him to the Maine countryside - perhaps to never return to Wisteria Lane. Karen pleads with Gabrielle not to tell Roy about her condition, and good deeds never go unpunished when, after paying off Ben's loan shark, the thug sets his eyes on destroying Renee's life.

  • 8.15 "She Needs Me"

    This was an average episode of DH. The only highlights for me were Bree/Orson confrontation in his apartment and his revenge when he sent the letter to the police, Renee being harassed by Donny the loan shark and Mike getting into a fight with that bastard! He should have killed him. Yeah, Mike. Gaby was boring, although she grew on me when she told Roy about Karen's cancer. Lynette & Susan fighting over granddaughter was rather boring and it seemed like a forced comedy. Meh! 7/10moreless
  • Great as usual!

    This was another spectacular Desperate Housewives episode! Some interesting storylines here, predominantly with Bree and Orson. It was very interesting to witness, and especially towards the end it was suspenseful! Can't believe the cliffhanger we got and I can't wait until next week's episode!!!

    Meanwhile, the Roy/Karen storylien is really sad and touching to watch, plus Carlos comes back home, so I'm interested to see what happenes there next.

    The Lynette/Susan/Porter storyline was quite funny. Baby Lynette, Baby Sophie, Baby Sop or whatever her name is going to be is certainly making things interesting! Can't wait to see hotw this episode's storyline continues to develop!

    Also, things got really interesting with the loan shark, but I'll say nothing more on that. I don't want to spoil it, but this was an exciting hour of Desperate Housewives, and I can't wait to see what happens next!!! :)moreless
  • Orson Nearly Succeeds In His Plan, While Susan And Lynette Argue About The Future Baby. Also, An Old Foe Resurfaces And Threatens Renee.

    The 8th season keeps on getting better and better. That is propably because even the side characters are getting impressive storylines. Karen's cancer for example. The scene at the hospital where she is talking with Roy, is one of her best moments ever. Bree discovers the identity of the person who had sent her the mysterious letter in the season premiere. That scene was crazy and major secrets are revealed. The future grandmothers argue about the baby. Donny (The loan shark) makes a return but now targets Renee. The scene where Mike confronted him at Renee's house was intense and the highlight of this episode. We are left to an awesome cliffhanger. The next episode is the most anticipated episode of the season! I'm looking forward to the next episode.moreless
  • She Needs Me

    She Needs Me was a great episode of Desperate Housewives and I really enjoyed watching this episode because the story lines were interesting and fun to watch. Susan and Lynette interacting and fighting over their common grandchild was fun to watch. I also thought it was great to see Orson and Bree continue along until she discovered the truth about him. I certainly look forward to watching the next episode to see what will happen!!!!!!!moreless
