Desperate Housewives: No One Is Alone

desperate housewives(S02E22) I think the best thing about this season is Felicia Tilman. There are a lot of crazy bitches on Wisteria Lane, but who's the craziest? Let's run through them, just from tonight's episode, and see who takes the cake.

Gabrielle -- Is she in the right by reclaiming her palace of a bedroom at the cost of her baby's mother's comfort? She did have a point about her husband already putting their child ahead of the marriage, but sometimes her methods could use some work. Actually, make that all the time.

Susan -- While she's crazy in every other episode, this week she's quite sane in comparison to the others. She shows she has some brains by wearing a wire to record Edie, then offers a reasonable deal to her. What the heck is going on here?

Edie -- She admits to burning Susan's house down. What more is there to say?

Lynette -- Couldn't she have just called a few people to figure out whether her husband was lying to her? Sure, he lied once already, but to do it again? At least she'd not have to see something second hand and have to make possibly false conclusions later.


Bree -- What is there to say, really? She ends the episode admitting to herself that she's a wee bit insane, checking herself into a psych hospital. She spent the entire episode acting like a loon, but as we've all seen from the past two seasons now, that's not a stretch for her.

Felicia -- The queen "Loon of the Lane" goes to Bree, though it's very possible that Felicia won't be coming back around again. We see she's been saving up her blood -- LOTS of it -- just to frame Paul. Oh, and she also chops off two of her own fingers to top things off real nice. How can she be so crazy as to do what she did and not just figure out a way to kill Paul herself?

I love this show, even when it has sucky episodes. But this episode sets the stage as to what may happen next? Tom and Lynette, good for her, I'm glad she split out on him, but is there a reconcilation in the horizon? Probably, and what about obsticles? What if the other woman is knocked up because as we all know, Tom likes it instantly. Paul and his son, I sort of see where this is going, Paul's lengthy and tedious court battle (yawn, snore) and his son will be staying with Mike, the bio dad. Course that will put a riff in Susan and Mike's relationship, and that's the downside of this show. Why not just go ahead, get them together and get it over with!! Quit with the tarry complications!! They drag the show down!! Gabby and Carlos....you know Carlos still wants an affair to get even with Gabby, and I'm sure he'll use that excuse once he beds "The Woman Carrying His Child". What I'm looking forward to is this high maintenance queen tending to a baby once again.....It captured me when she manipulated her maid to watching the baby and forgetting about who's in charge of her child's care. Bree.....I would love to see Bree get on Match.com and find someone as controlling with parallel compulsive behaviors as her own.....now that would be seriously interesting to watch. Maybe a Bipolar soulmate and we all can learn more about bipolarism? I loved it when Edie had been stung by yellow jackets....but aren't yellow jackets ground dwellers and not in the perfect tree in a perfect beehive? Come on people.....quit showing off your GED's!! You know, it would be nice to see Edie all of a sudden get smitten by a preacher, become religious with high expectations of "Saving the neighborhood for the Lord". Discovering perhaps it's not all what it's cracked up to be? I'm looking forward to a new season, but have a feeling this coming season will be a bit less than sensational. More like make a pot of coffee just to stay awake?

DH totally took the finger-cut-off idea from Alias when Slone used his wife's finger to feign her "kidnapping" and eventual "death".

Welcome back to a dark look at suburbia - that's what this show was always supposed to be about - and there were many, many stellar moments to be had - Marcia Cross is beyond amazing, yet again - and it left me wanting for more, like it hasn't in a while (and I for one think much of this season is as good if not better than season one).

I thought Susan and Mike were awesome in this ep, and I wish we could have seen even more interaction between them. Other storylines are entertaining, like Gabby and her perfume sprayer to get her maid out her bedroom. I feel really sorry for Bree - she's freaking out, and her children are just as insane. I'm curious to see what happens with Tom and Lynette (where did Lynette go, I wonder?) but like I said, I really watch for Susan and Mike. I loved when he put the wire on her - there's a undeniable spark between them! Looking forward to watching the season finale next week. I'm going to miss my DH over the summer!
