A Little Night Music @ Wisteria Lane
It's the important Independent Day in USA, for me, today marks the end of short break. The most important thing for today is without a doubt - Desperate Housewives! Only 3 more episodes left to this season final.
Last week on Wisteria Lane, it was all about the weird boy Eddie. A boy that everybody in the area knows, but grows up to be a serial killer. And the shocking part... he killed his own mother.
Well, Eddie does not have a happy childhood, his father dumped the unwanted him with his mother, and the mother is an alcoholic.
Lynette who does not know much about the real Eddie invited Eddie to move in.
Tonight on Desperate Housewives (season 6 episode 21: A Little Night Music):
Angie comes face to face with her ex, Patrick Logan, after years of being on the run. Meanwhile, Gaby and Susan plan an elaborate scheme against their husbands, and Lynette sees a darker side to Eddie.
The Desperate Housewives is on tonight at the usual time - 8.30pm on Channel 7.
Desperate Housewives recap (season 6 episode 20: Epiphany):
We meet Eddie's mom Barbara, a mean, slovenly drunk. She raids his room, looking for a bottle of Scotch, but instead finds his scrapbook with the clippings about the Fairview murders.
We flashback to when Eddie was just four, and his father left his mother -- after loudly proclaiming that he'd never wanted any of this, including Eddie. Mary Alice tries to befriend her, but Barbara isn't interested. Mary Alice stops by one day to give Eddie a teddy bear and finds him home alone while his mom is out drinking. She lectures Barbara about not putting her needs ahead of her son, but the lesson clearly doesn't take.
Gaby first meets Eddie when she moves to Wisteria Lane and finds a lonely Eddie inside her empty house -- he'd been sneaking in to play there since the previous owners moved out. He ends up coming over every day because Barbara has a new boyfriend. When he surprises Carlos and Gaby in the tub, Carlos orders Gaby to "cut him loose" and start making friends with other women, not nine-year-old boys. Gaby wants to go talk to Barbara, but Carlos advises her, "We don't want to be known as the nosy neighbors." After Gaby tells him they can't be friends anymore, Eddie grabs a BB gun and shoots a bird.
We next see teenage Eddie doing chores for Bree. He tells her "girls never notice me" and she gives him dating advice. She even gives him extra money to buy gifts for the girl he likes. Bree goes to talk to Barbara when Eddie's object of affection ends up being Danielle! She returns the necklace Eddie left for Danielle and asks Barbara to "let Eddie down easy." Instead, Barbara tells him that he needs to stop "stalking" Danielle. Worse, she goes on to say, "The only girl I ever thought he'd end up with would be blind, deaf or inflatable." Bree tells him Danielle and he can still be friends. Our heart breaks for Eddie when he tells Bree, "I don't want a friend. I want somebody to love me." Next, we see Eddie with a hooker. When she laughs at the flowers he's brought her, he kills her.
Susan meets Eddie at the coffee shop just after Mike starts dating Katherine. She praises Eddie's drawing and even pays for him to take art classes. So Eddie is crushed to hear that she and Mike are back together -- and getting married! "Don't marry Mike. You could marry me," he offers. Not realizing he's serious she thanks him for the "good laugh." Eddie tears up the drawings he made of her. That night, we see Eddie prowling outside her house and when he sees a woman come out, he attacks her, only then seeing that it's Julie, not Susan. He runs off, but then brings flowers to her hospital bedside. "What kind of monster would do this?" Susan asks. "It wasn't a monster," Eddie says. "This was done by some piece of garbage that doesn't even deserve to be on this earth."
Eddie is playing charades with the Scavos when his mother comes over, demanding to know where he hid her booze. "I don't think you should talk to your son like that," she tells Barbara. Lynette tells Tom, "We know something bad is happening, but we do nothing. I'm tired of being one of the people who does nothing," she says. Tom suggests Eddie's old enough to strike out on his own, but Lynette thinks he's "too damaged."
Meanwhile, Barbara is confronting Eddie about his scrapbook. "Did you have anything to do with hurting those girls?" He nods and she sobs, "I didn't raise you to be like this." "Didn't you?" he asks. "The worst mistake I ever made in my life was having you," she spits out and he hits her with a bottle, then chokes her to death. Just then, Lynette shows up to ask him to move in with them. "You've got to get out of here, Eddie," she tells him. "This isn't a healthy situation." She sees his mother on the floor and assumes she's just passed-out! Eddie accepts Lynette's invitation, then disposes of his mother's body.
