  • Hmm.

    6.5
    This episode seemed a little off to me, but I guess they were saving some things for the 2 hour-finale. Gaby and Juanita: this was an old sitcom plot all over again, rehashed and offered to us by a new writer Valerie A. Brotski, I hope this was her first and last episode.



    Bree & Chuck: I liked this plot, they provided some very decent comedy together and might work even better then Bree & Orson these last few years.



    Susan/Felicia/Paul/cookies: This was nice, very entertaining and good ending with Susan being taken under arrest. The only problem with this plot - Felicia being Susan's friend and visiting her, I guess Susan is a very good person and she probably feels guilty about Beth.



    Lynette & Tom: nothing special, just the usual competing until the very end when they had a fight and Penny interrupted them with her crying.moreless

    This was a really brilliant episode, and some brilliant storylines continue to deevelop really well! First up, the most interesting sotryline, Susan's, was thrilling as usual, and things got really funny, suspenseful and intriguing at the very end! I think this storyline will be immensely interesting when it culminates next time or in the future!



    As for Gabrielle, I found the storyline and concept of watching horror movies with Juanita to be hilarous! What an awful mother! And this storyline was just hilarious today!



    Bree's storyline was lacklustre, but it was hilarious in the car, when the detective picked up the prostitute. Some hilarious writing right there!



    As fo r Lynette, she is just so boring these days. Tom is just as dull, and if it weren't for Penny, this storyline today would've been so dull...



    All up, great storylines! Some really hilarious moments in this episode, such as Gabrielle's comment on hobos being happy, but all up, a terrific episode! Keep up the great work, guys!moreless
  • The crap is really hitting the fan now

    9.0
    Firstly, we see more of Jonathan Cake. He begins to open up more and Bree is slowly starting to like him (me too love, me too). The scene where they do background checks on each other was funny and nice to see continutiy is maintained again. also nice to see more of Vanessa Williams.



    Once again though, Susan/Paul/Felicia steal the spotlight - what has happened this season? The acting has been topnotch and the overall series arc about Paul Young returning and Tilman's Revenge has been handled very well. The scene where Susan was trying to get her job back was good but its the ending when Susan was carted off by the cops that stands out. Once again, Mark Moses does really well.



    And just who is the man watching Gabrielle? I smell trouble....moreless

    this was another great episode, season seven seems to be improving every week as it approches the end, i enjoyed all the stuff with susan as she tried to get her job back and i thought all the refrensces to her erotic cleaning were really funny however the end of this storlyine sees susan being taken away by the police because they suspect her of poisoing paul cant wait to see what happens there next week, lynette and tom argueing continues however it was done better this week then ost weeks the scene when they are fighting and penny sees them and starts crying was really sad, i think they are going to seperate, the bree storyline was good even though i was abit annoyed that the writers coundent come up with some eles for bree that dosnt involve a man however chuck seems to be a much better match for bree then keith and the actors seems to have chemistry so im actually liking there relationship so far..

    gaby had a great storyline this week i liked the fact she showed her daughter a horror movie i thought the scene were lee tricks them was really funny, but the end of this storyline was actually really spookey who is this man watching gaby ? is he her step father mayber he has some connection to juanita bio family ?? cant wait to find outmoreless
  • Then I Really Got Scared

    7.5
    Then I Really Got Scared was a good episode of Desperate Housewives though a little slow and uneventful. I did enjoy watching the episode as Tom and Lynette battle over where to go on family vacation causing more tension. It was fun to watch Bree try to go on a date with the detective and how that played out. I also thought it was funny how Gaby showed Juanita a horror film and she was scared and claimed to see some one outside, and perhaps she really did. I really look forward to watching the next episode of Desperate Housewives!!!moreless
