Desperate Housewives: Come Play Wiz Me
Oh, I'm not buying it for one second. But there it was. And now that Susan isn't flinging herself in his direction, of course Mike seems interested.
Mike tells Zach that he doesn't remember him, "But I know who you are." That is a very ambiguous statement. Paul tells Mike that they shared more than a cell block. But do you think Mike really knows that Zach is his son? Or do you think Mike was referring simply to knowing Zach's identity.
I love Gaby, just love her. Eva Longoria is such a fine actress; she really did seem to be having a good time with Zach when they got out of the limo. I can even buy Gaby's reasons for wanting to be friends with Zach. Oh, Susan had such a good zinger though: "Let's not pretend we are above teenagers." Is Gaby protesting too much by stressing to Zach that they are only going to be friends? And do you think Zach is just going to swallow his obsession with her, or was he telling Paul his version of the truth when he claimed he was going to marry his fantastic new girlfriend?
Poor Orson. I do not even want to speculate about whether or not it would actually be possible for Alma to have raped him with those pills. But you know she is going to claim she is pregnant, whether she is or not. And heck, maybe she is! That would certainly spice things up (especially with today's meta-knowledge that Marcia Cross is actually pregnant in real life, but they aren't using her pregnancy on the show. Now we know why; apparently, the one who carries Orson's child wins. They may be able to hide Marcia Cross's burgeoning belly, but they aren't disguising her bosom very well. Even if I didn't know she was pregnant, I would have known something was up when she was out watering her garden!).
Alma's violation of Orson (don't these people believe in calling the police for crying out loud? Bring the wheelbarrow? Which was very funny, by the way) aside, we still don't know the real story about Monique. What does Orson know from looking at those teeth? He wanted to know if they were a full set, and he called his mother and let her and Alma both know the jig was up. Were they Monique's teeth? Or perhaps Orson's mother had her teeth pulled out and got herself a new set. At any rate, for some reason, Alma can no longer go to the police, but now Orson can. Too bad Bree doesn't know what is going on. Yet.
All of the housewives had jam-packed story lines this episode: Lynette had her big career switch. Did anybody not see that coming as soon as Tom came in and said that his manager had quit? But even so, that kid Kayla is probably even more bad news than her mother! Kayla scares me to death: I don't even know adults in my real life who are so cut throat. She makes Alma look like Glenna the Good Witch. And suddenly Lynette is in love with the pizza parlor and wants to make a change after one day at a street fair? I hate this storyline already. Please, Dear Writers, don't drag this one out.
