Watch While I Revise the World, Desperate Housewives

Desperate Housewives
Last week on the exciting double episodes of Desperate Housewives, the story continued from previous season where Carlos killed Gaby's evil stepfather. The girls hid the corpse in a bush. However, life was never the same after that, they don't cope well particularly for Susan.

Then there was a new neighbour moved in, his name is Ben Faulkner. Somehow Renee wanted him, but he was not that interested.

Bree received a note, with the same writing as the one Mary Alice Young received (which led her to kill herself), “I know what you did. It makes me sick. I'm going to tell.”

The girls wanted Bree to break up with Detective Chuck Vance, but Bree then suspects that the note was from Chuck since mentioned Mary Alice's note to Chuck when he confessed to the murder of Martha Huber about the note.

Tonight on Desperate Housewives (season 8 episode 3: Watch While I Revise the World)

As Susan and Carlos bond over their feelings of guilt at the murder of Gaby's stepfather, Mike begins to think that the two are having an affair. Bree suspects that her detective boyfriend may secretly be investigating her, and as her marriage continues to crumble, the tables are turned on Lynette when her usually relationship-challenged sister, Lydia, comes to town and announces that she's engaged.

The exciting Desperate Housewives starts tonight at 9.30 on Seven tonight after season premier of Grey's Anatomy.

Last week on Desperate Housewives (season 8 episode 1: Secrets That I Never Want to Know),

As Mary Alice Young tells us in one of her always-informative voiceovers, only the best of friends will stay after a party is over to help clean up the mess. In some cases, the mess may just be a dead body. The housewives and Carlos carry the corpse of Gaby's evil stepfather into the woods where they dig a grave. It's a tense time for all involved, but everyone agrees to bury the body, and their secret, forever. Sounds like a plan, right?

Carlos has been a bit on edge ever since, well, he killed a guy. He wants to talk to Father Dugan, but ends up in the confessional with a much younger priest who is desperate to hear some juicy secrets. Carlos doesn't want to chat with this guy, but Gaby does confess to making out with a couple of chicks in college. That should satisfy the good father's thirst for gossip for awhile.

Gaby kidnaps Father Dugan before he catches a flight to go dig wells for lepers in Rwanda because, well, what she needs him for is important. But Carlos knows he can't confess his sins without hurting others. Gaby tells him that she's spent her life in fear of her stepfather. Now she's not afraid anymore. Her hubby may have taken a life, but in doing so he also saved one. Carlos wants absolution. He gets it from his wife.

Detective Chuck Vance thinks Bree's friends don't like him. He feels everything changed the night of the dinner party. Hey, the guy has good instincts! He just cracked a case by tracking down a dead man's car. This sends Bree and Gaby hunting for Alejandro's car. Since neither of them can really drive a stick, they don't get very far before the police pull them over. Fortunately (or unfortunately), Chuck is the cop who makes the traffic stop.

Bree and Gaby weave a series of lies to cover themselves as Chuck drives a car that is filled with Alejandro's keepsakes. Eventually, they need to pull over so Gaby can yack up the chewing tobacco she'd been chomping on as part of the ruse. Bree is overjoyed when a carjacker pops by to swipe the incriminating vehicle. She tells the gun-wielding thief to buckle up before he speeds away. She's such a conscientious citizen.

There's a handsome new neighbor on the lane. His name is Ben Faulkner (Charles Mesure). Renee quickly calls dibs on the single guy with the cool blue sports car in the driveway. She's not one for small talk. No, Renee would much rather skip right to the sex. Unfortunately, new neighbor Ben just isn't interested. Go figure.

Tom sneaks in early every morning so the kids don't know he and Lynette are separated. It's not ideal, especially since Lynette's been having lots of nightmares lately. She rushes across the street to tell Tom she needs him and the two of them spend the night together. The next morning, Lynette tells Tom that what happened hasn't changed anything. At this point, they both realize that giving the kids the scoop on their current situation can't wait any longer.

Susan's guilt over that whole "accessory to murder" thing has her avoiding all the girls on the lane. Her one solace is the fact that she gets to substitute teach for a day. Unfortunately, the class hamster keels over on her watch. Susan must hold a funeral for the little furball where she must dig a shallow grave. This causes her to completely fall apart. It's understandable. Cupcake the hamster was beloved by all.

Susan wants to tell Mike what's happened. As you can imagine, this idea doesn't go over well with the other ladies. Gaby hops atop Susan's back to stop her from going to her hubby. Lynette also gets in the action. SPLASH! The three of them end of in the pool just as Mike, Carlos and Chuck swing by. Then Bree dives in to help with the cover story that they were looking for Susan's earring.

Later, the four soggy housewives have a heart-to-heart. They agree to keep the secret so that nobody else can be implicated. No one can ever know. But it appears somebody already does. Bree finds a note in her mailbox. It reads: "I know what you did. It makes me sick. I'm going to tell." Sound familiar?

Desperate Housewives

Also, (season 8 episode 2: Making the Connection),

"I know what you did. It makes me sick. I'm going to tell." If you remember, these are the words Bree found on a note that was left in her mailbox. If you remember, these are the same words Mary Alice Young found on a similar menacing message in her mailbox shortly before she decided to kill herself.

Bree visits Paul Young in prison to confront him about the note. The problem is he's not the mystery author who sent it. The two of them rattle off a list of people who knew about the original letter Mary Alice received. Paul is surprised to learn that Bree hasn't mentioned this new note to her friends. He believes that if Mary Alice had confided in them when she got her note, things may have turned out a whole different way.

New neighbor Ben Faulkner is impressed when Mike fixes his busted pipe at no charge. The first guy he called tried to rip him off big time. That's probably why Ben offers the trustworthy Mike a job on a real estate venture he has brewing. A background check reveals Mike's past time in jail. He thinks it cost him the job. But Ben knows the details behind the crime and assures Mike that he could still use a guy like him.

Renee buddies up to Mrs. McCluskey when she discovers new neighbor Ben has a soft spot for the elderly. The plan seems to work when a dinner date is made. Unfortunately for Renee, she's not the one dining. No, she's asked to serve meals to the elderly. Renee realizes Ben was mocking her. The two of them eventually have a heart-to-heart to discover that they both have survived rough patches in life. Well, what do you know? Turns out they actually do have something in common.

Lynette is upset because the kids are having such a great time whenever they are with Tom. That's because he never says no to their requests. When Parker gets invited to what will likely be a wild party, neither of his folks want to play bad cop. So, he makes his way over to the rager and gets really drunk. After Tom and Lynette hose the vomit off their intoxicated son, they realize they can't compete to win the affections of their kids anymore.

It's been 38 days since Gaby has had sex. Her unenviable streak isn't ending anytime soon since Carlos is having performance issues. Gaby wants to learn pole dancing in order to spice up their sex life. She doesn't have time to learn all the gravity-defying moves her scantily-clad teacher provides, so she hires the professional stripper to help rev up her hubby's engine before she hops into the driver's seat. The seduction plan fails magnificently, as Carlos simply can't pretend everything is okay.

After Susan accidently leaves the grocery store without paying for some soda, she demands the store's eager young security guard drag her inside in handcuffs. It's her way of dealing with the guilt of that little homicide secret she's been keeping. In fact, Susan goes great lengths to do things that will get her punished. She even goes so far as to push over a cop's motorcycle. The one friend she can call to bail her out of jail is Carlos, as he seems to be the only other person having a truly difficult time dealing with the guilt of their secret.

Bree shows Gaby the note. She believes they should keep this info just between them. She also advises Bree to break up with Chuck. It's just too risky having a cop as a constant part of their lives. It looks as though the handsome Detective Vance is headed for dumpsville until Bree gets a call from Paul Young.

Paul says he mentioned Mary Alice's note to the police when he confessed to the murder of Martha Huber. The name of the main detective was a tall guy with a short name. If you're guessing that name is Chuck Vance, then give yourself a gold star. Guess there's no way Bree can break up with the guy now.
