Desperate Housewives: It Wasn't Meant To Happen

desperate housewivesThis was one of the better episodes of the season. Well, it was one of the best in my book. We had less Susan and more Applewhite, Scavo and Van De Camp this week, and that meant more answers than questions. Though there wasn't a lot of the Solis family, what we did see was surprisingly heartbreaking for a couple who aren't typically in such a situation.

Obviously, with only three episodes left, we're seeing things finally start coming to a close, though so far it's really no match for what we saw in this series' first season.

The most surprising revelation this week was that Betty Applewhite would rather see Caleb die at her own hands (or rather, her son's hands) than to see him committed to an institution. The whole plan between Danielle and Matthew was pretty surprising, but even though their plan worked, it's sort-of backfiring on them.

The other big happening worth mentioning this week was Carlos and Gaby losing their baby to the system. I'm not completely up on adoption laws in this country, but this is exactly the sort of thing I'd feared once in my own past. To fall in love with a child, only to have it stripped from you, and there's nothing you can do about it. I sometimes wonder if this is why some people choose to adopt from overseas rather than wrestle with such issues here in the States.

The previews for the last few episodes definitely look to be interesting, though  I really hope they're not leading us on with false hope with some of them. Will Bree's son really come down on her like he promised? Will Tom's little secret finally come out? I guess we'll just have to wait and see.

Gaby - Did anyone else happen to notice that when the baby & natural mother were driven away in the back of the polie car that the baby was NOT in a car seat???

My bad - I was thinking of Sodium Pentothal - (thank you wikipedia). I still think she is bluffing though.

Jenn -- I believe Betty wanted to give her son "Barbital": http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Barbital

Betty Applewhite - what did she say the name of the medicine is? I thought she rattled off the proper name of the drug known as "truth" serum. My take is that she said that to get Matthew to fess up.

I also want to comment that, while I love that Edie is getting a good story and I love that Susan is feelign guilty and all that, I was disappointed that they sent Edie into "Susan" hijinks with the fight. It was beyone stupid.

Nice to see scary "Zeke" (Walt's kidnapper) from "Lost" playing the sexaholic's friend...

Besides that, this show sucks..
