Sunday, Desperate Housewives

Desperate Housewives

Last week's aftermath of the tornado, it was simply brilliant. The aftermath of the tornado, Lynette's family were safe, but Ida wasn't. She saved Lynette's kids. Susan invited Bree and Orson to stay with her until their roof could be repaired. Susan and Julie were expecting some horrible experiences, but instead both were touched by Bree's housekeeping skills... dusting, cleaning, polishing, ironing, cooking... The guy who agreed to fix Bree's roof called off due to his personal relationship (he was dumped by his long time boyfriend). Bree set up Andrew to flirt him, and Andrew wanted a big flat screen TV in return. Susan stopped Andrew from doing so as she wants Bree to stay.

At Victor's funeral, Victor's father told Gabrielle that she would get absolutely nothing as he knew what happened. Gaby still wants to get back with Carlos, so she tried to look for the copy that can access Carlos' overseas secret account, but failed. Gaby did not know Carlos was blind. If you missed out last week's Desperate Housewives - Welcome to Kanagawa, you can download it legally from iTunes Store.

Mary Alice Young quote: It has been seven days since a tornado devastated Wisteria Lane, and the residents continued to pick up the pieces of their lives. Some salvaged precious friendships. Some uncovered colourful histories. Others found challenges they hadn't expected. And then... there was one girl who stumbled upon the truth she'd long been searching for... only to wish she hadn't.

Desperate Housewives

Last time on Desperate Housewives, (Season 4 episode 10, Welcome to Kanagawa):

In the aftermath of the tornado, Susan and Bree try to assure Lynette that her family will be okay as rescue workers slowly excavate the rubble of Karen McCluskey's house. First the children are brought out, safe and sound, then finally Tom, but Karen gets devastating news: Her friend, Ida Greenberg, is dead.

Lynette helps Karen go through Ida's things and Parker wants to help out too. He tells Lynette that it was Ida who saved him. Tom had passed out from his asthma and Ida told the children to hide under the stairs, where they'd be safe, but there wasn't room for her.

Lynette is overcome with guilt and Karen tells her that even if Lynette been there, it wouldn't have made a difference. Karen reveals that Ida was a professional baseball player during the war and that she would want her ashes sprinkled at the local ball field. When Ida's niece shows up, however, all she wants of her aunt's things is a valuable pearl necklace. Lynette tells her of Ida's last wish and the niece says she doesn't have time to sprinkle the ashes, so she'll take them back to Omaha with her. Thinking quickly, Lynette swaps out the ashes for the contents of Ida's vacuum cleaner and the niece is none the wiser.

Since the ball park owner won't allow them to scatter Ida's ashes at the field, Lynette and Karen sneak in at night to do the job. They're caught but let off with a warning. Lynette still feels it wasn't enough, since she didn't even really know the woman who saved her children's lives before she died. Karen says that's something you learn, to appreciate people while they're here. Lynette wants to know why Karen mentioned that an arrest would be a "third strike," and Karen says it's a long tale, best suited to a dark bar and a pitcher of beer. Lynette smiles and says she's got time for that.

Susan invites Bree and Orson to stay with her until their roof can be repaired. She's prepared for it to be an ordeal, but instead she and Julie quickly become addicted to Bree's stellar homemaking skills. Meanwhile, Bree has lined up Walter, the one available contractor in town, to fix her roof and won't take no for an answer when he tells her he can't do the job after all. She learns that he was dumped by his longtime boyfriend and schemes to set him up with her son, Andrew, without letting on that it is a setup.

Susan and Julie happily agree to eat Bree's delicious dinner in their rooms so Bree can wine and dine Walter -- but when Julie overhears Bree's plan, Susan vows to ruin the matchmaking so Bree will stay with her. In the meantime, however, Andrew has realized what's going on. He agrees to flirt with Walter, if Bree coughs up a big-screen plasma TV for him. The deal is on, until Susan bursts into the living room and points out how much older Walter is than Andrew: Maybe his friends will think he's paying for Andrew's company? Walter bows out, saying he's just not ready to date, and Bree is furious. Susan finally admits why she wants Bree to stay: With Mike in rehab, she'd be a wreck right now, if it weren't for Bree taking care of her. Bree softens and announces they need to continue the conversation over homemade chocolate-chip cookies.

At Victor's funeral, his father, Milton, coldly informs Gabrielle that he knows all about the photos of her and Carlos and that she won't be getting a cent from Victor's estate, as it was all in Milton's name. He orders her to leave the funeral and that if she isn't gone by the time he reaches the pulpit to deliver the eulogy, he'll tell everyone that she's a lying, cheating whore. Gabrielle leaves.

She visits Carlos in the hospital; he was conked on the head during the tornado. He can't see her -- his eyes are bandaged -- but he realizes something is wrong when he tries to reassure that they still have his money, at least. She reluctantly tells him how the paperwork the accountant, Al, brought him about the offshore account was lost in the tornado, but she promises him she'll track down Al and get the information. When she arrives at Al's, she finds him in a coffin, as he perished during the storm. Gabrielle inquires where he kept his files and starts going through them. After she's caught, she admits her true reasons but the widow tells her she shredded all of Al's offshore account paperwork to protect him.

Gaby swears she still wants to remarry Carlos, even without the money. What she doesn't know is that the accident caused Carlos to lose his sight. He hasn't told her because he's sure she'll leave him when she learns the truth.

After Adam's admission of infidelity with Sylvia, Katherine orders him to leave, but Dylan begs him to stay, saying she can't bear to be alone with her mother. Adam is packing and drops something on the floor. When he bends down to retrieve it, he finds the note that Aunt Lillian wrote before she died, the one that reveals the secret Katherine has been trying to keep about Dylan's father. Adam tells Katherine he's leaving, not because she wants him to, but because he's walking out on her. He shows her the note and tells her that she's way ahead of him when it comes to betrayal. A distraught Katherine tears up the note and burns it in the fireplace, but Dylan, who overheard their conversation, pieces the note back together and learns the truth for herself.
