Review: Desperate Housewives - Boom Crunch

Desperate Housewives
(S06E10) "Your mom needs help, and so does Mike." - Susan to Dylan

There we go, dear TV Squad readers, a few of our wishes and theories concerning Desperate Housewives have come true this week in the Christmas-themed installment of the show. I mentioned a few weeks back that I wanted Dylan, Katherine's daughter, to come back to Wisteria Lane and help her mother, and it came true. And two weeks ago, a few of you predicted the accurate turn of events concerning Katherine's stabbing.

But Katherine's crazy storyline wasn't the important event of the last episode of 2009. As teased for weeks, the lives of the Wisteria Lane citizens were rocked by a boom and a crunch.

Review: Desperate Housewives - Careful the Things You Say

Desperate Housewives: Careful the Things You Say
(S06E07) "There are two sides to every story." - Nick

And to finish that thought, Lynette said, "Yeah, well your side is married." Which sums up part of what this episode covered -- the fact that Julie and Nick had an affair, and Lynette found out about it and confronted him. During the scene, I thought to myself, why is Lynette confronting him? What does she hope to gain from it? But I can see why she did it -- to try and protect Julie.

I'm filling in for Isabelle this week (apologies for my lateness on the review), so be gentle with me. Mostly what occurred to me about this episode was how thin all the ladies have gotten again. For a while there, it seemed like some of them bulked up to at least a size two. Now they're all back down to a size 0. Bree runs a catering service, for cripes sake, and looks like she hasn't eaten in weeks. Sandwiches for all. Oh, and Carlos is looking more and more like John Travolta. And thank God for Kathy Najimy.

Review: Desperate Housewives - Don't Walk on the Grass

Desperate Housewives
(S06E06) "Aren't you glad I'm not crazy anymore?" - Katherine to Susan

To our pleasure and amusement, Katherine is still crazy and maybe even more than before. She is so deeply in denial that she can't see the truth anymore and thinks her make-believe world is accurate.

I've had to teach a teen who was in such a denial a few years back -- he was making up all sort of lies to hide the fact that things weren't going well at home, so he made up this "other and better" life. I can tell you that it's extremely difficult to help the person come back to reality and also to differentiate if what they tell us is true or false, since they are really convincing as, to them, their world is accurate. It needs a lot of therapy to help someone like that come back to reality.

Since Katherine is not getting the help she needs to deal with her denial, fantasies and problems, she will keep plotting to get Mike back and hurt people in the process, including herself. It won't be pretty when she'll hit rock bottom.

Review: Desperate Housewives - Everybody Ought to Have a Maid

Desperate Housewives
(S06E05) "You seem like a nice lady. Don't you ever feel guilty?" - The maid to Bree

This week's episode was pretty much what I call a "filler episode". Yes, there was some progress in the storylines but if someone missed this week's installment of Desperate Housewives, they won't be totally lost next week.

Even if "Everybody Ought to Have a Maid" wasn't the best DH episode so far this season, I did enjoy the dialog between Bree and the maid concerning Bree's affair with Karl, as well as Julie's return home after two weeks in the hospital, especially since her return meant that she would run into Nick eventually.

Desperate Housewives: Nice Is Different Than Good (season premiere)

Desperate Housewives
(S06E01) "Just last month, she took something of mine." - The woman who didn't get Mike about the woman who did get him

Finally! We learned who Mike married in the season finale and, luckily, we didn't have to wait long to get the answer, as it was revealed within the first minute. Then again, if you read ABC's official description for the fourth episode of the season over the weekend, they spoiled the first scene for you, as they clearly stated whom Mike didn't marry.

I don't get why ABC couldn't be cryptic in their description or at least wait until tomorrow before releasing it, especially since they have been trying very hard to keep the name of the bride a secret.

Producers dish Desperate secrets

Desperate Housewives promoLast season's Desperate Housewives' finale was pretty much a game changer. The denizens of Wisteria Lane jumped five years into the future and into completely different lives. Just to recap: Gaby (Eva Longoria Parker) is a mom, Bree (Marcia Cross) is the new Martha Stewart and is back with Orson (Kyle MacLachlan), Lynette's (Felicity Huffman) sons are juvenile delinquents, Susan (Teri Hatcher) has a new man and Edie (Nicolette Sheridan) is nowhere to be found. So basically things are a little ... different. Executive producers Bob Daily and Sabrina Wind discuss just how different life on Wisteria Lane is going to be this season.

Daily says that the five year jump has allowed them to wipe the slate clean, "We keep talking about this first episode likes it's another pilot. We're starting over and each woman has a new drive now." For more information on what to expect on Desperate Housewives this season, follow me after the jump.

WARNING: SPOILERS AFTER THE JUMP
