The Chase, Wisteria Lane

Like many other Australians, last week was a very long week. Many people endlessly refreshed the tracking information provided by Apple and TNT for the very important delivery. TNT drivers were flatted out with the massive delivery. They did a great job on handling such huge amount. Well, back to today's topic - Desperate Monday.

Last week on Wisteria Lane, it was all about Robin, an ex-stripper Susan invited home. Besides brightening up neighbourhood, each housewife is affected. Lynette discovered that Parker offered Robin money for sex. Later she learned that Tom got her an antique ring because Tom wanted to have sex. Robin asked Bree for help baking a cake and ended up inspiring Bree to restart her sex life with Orson (it ended up as a disaster). Gaby used Robin to tell Ana that her life was screwed up (so she would go to New York and leave Danny), Robin wasn't happy about being used. Robin helped Mike on his sore back. Susan got jealous, and she insisted on cracking Mike's back instead of Robin. She ended up hurting Mike. As for Katherine, she got a new friend - Robin - moving in.

Susan causes quite a stir when she invites a former stripper into her home. Former exotic dancer Robin will have a profound effect on Susan's friends, and Bree picks up a few tricks to engage Orson.

Tonight on Desperate Housewives (season 6 episode 16: The Chase):

When Celia comes down with the chicken pox, Gaby must keep her distance. Having never had the chicken pox herself, Gaby stays with Tuc and Bob and is reminded of what it's like to be single again. Meanwhile, Bree hires a promising new employee and Angie grows concerned over Danny's disappearance.

The Desperate Housewives is on tonight at the usual time - 8.30pm on Channel 7.

Mary Alice Young quote:
Robin Gallagher was right. The people she had met on Wisteria Lane had really looked at her, and they had seen her sense of morality, her loyal heart, her surprising insight, her forgiving nature. Some people had even taken notice of her incredible beauty. And they were surprised to discover they liked what they saw.

Desperate Housewives recap (season 6 episode 14: The Glamorous Life):

Robin's presence on Wisteria Lane makes the men perk up and the women jealous. Lynette says. "I have teenage boys at home. The last thing I need next door is a stripper." Katherine, who's back from her stay at the mental institution says, "She can't bring any more crazy to this street than I did."

Lynette is horrified to find out that her son, Parker, has offered Robin money to have sex with him! Parker explains that he's the only one of his friends who's still a virgin. Tom tells him it'll happen, in a few years. But he observes to Lynette, "Guys always pay for sex in some way, dinner, flowers, antique rings." She takes offense, since he just gave her a ring for their anniversary and is now expecting not only sex but an "upgrade." She explains that the reason she slept with him the first time wasn't because of the expensive dinner, but because he had brought over a lightbulb to make her apartment more safe, and we can see the lightbulb go on in Tom's head.

Robin asks Bree for help baking a cake and ends up inspiring Bree to restart her sex life with Orson, despite his being in a wheelchair. We have to laugh at Bree's strip scene -- done to Tchaikovsky! And that Orson asks if she's having a stroke when she tries to give him a lapdance! She explains that she wants to share a bed with him, even if it's just holding his hand while he falls asleep.

Since learning that the Bolens are on the run, Gabby is determined get Ana away form Danny. She arranges for an old photographer friend in New York to represent Ana, but Ana turns down the offer saying, "Danny and I have a plan, we're going to New York together when I graduate." Gabby's solution comes unexpectedly from Robin, when she tells how she passed on an offer from a ballet company because of a boy, only to lose both. Gabby convinces her to tell Ana that story and next thing we know, Ana is packing her bags and breaking up with Danny because he's not happy for her big break. Robin is upset at being used and goes to talk to Danny, who we next see heading out in a taxi.

Even Susan gets jealous when Robin turns out to have a knack for fixing Mike's sore back. Susan tries fixing his back herself, only to send Mike to the hospital! She admits to Robin that she had a hard time seeing, her "all over Mike." Robin decides it's time to move out so they can still stay friends.

Katherine's rattling around all alone in her big house, so it seems perfect when Robin moves in. The two go out for drinks to celebrate, where the men only hit on Robin. Telling them they're nuts to ignore a "classy, beautiful" woman like Katherine, Robin kisses her on the lips, saying, "I'll just keep her all to myself." Katherine laughs at her great exit, but then realizes that Robin really does like women. Katherine says she'll stick with men, but we can see she's definitely considering switching!
