Desperate Housewives: Bang
Does anybody actually buy Orson's explanation of how Alma got her bruises? Actually, his last crack about his recommendation to put salt on a wine stain being the reason why Alma decked him does kind of ring true... I still haven't seen any creepy behavior by Orson to Bree since they got married. Creepy behavior? Yes. Just not toward his wife.
Perhaps Mary Alice's line to Lynette at the end should be passed around to Bree, who blames herself for the hostage crisis. The writers did a neat job of getting everybody to the grocery store, and having all of their lives and timelines intersect. The lamest reason for being at the store was probably Lynette's, though her shot about how she hadn't wanted the first four kids but they grew on her anyway was precious. It is nice to see that kind of honesty about motherhood reflected in a popular television show.Do you think there is going to be much fallout in Lynette's and Tom's relationship because of Nora's death? Did you suspect that Nora was going to be the one killed, or that her infidelity was going to be the reason? I certainly didn't see that coming. I was just hoping that Lynette wouldn't be killed.
Am I the only one who, with all of the destruction occurring between Gabrielle and Carlos, kept thinking, "Who is going to pay for all of that? They need to just demolish that house and move"? Not that the rest of the show is particularly realistic, but to have a War of the Roses-type divorce, I personally believe that you have to have much more of a progression, and also much more intense hatred between the divorcing couple. Nor do I think that after you have invested that much emotion and activity in destroying your house that you suddenly decide to bury the hatchet. Even after your neighbors have been held hostage at the grocery store. But I have never been in that situation, so who knows?
What did you think?
