Need to refresh last week’s episode? My recap is right here.
This week’s theme on Desperate Housewives is how to learn lessons and deal with conflicts, and boy, do our ladies get schooled - in more ways than one. We start right off with Gabrielle, who is dropping Juanita off at school. In classic Gabrielle fashion, she’s sick of waiting like every other common person and tries to get Juanita to leave the car before she’s in the designated safe "green zone." When Juanita gets caught by Dana, the school cop, she revokes Gabrielle’s "green zone" placard saying this is the third time she’s committed such an offense. From now on, she has to park in the far away "B" Lot and walk Juanita twice as far to the school as opposed to dropping her off.
Lynette, meanwhile, is attempting to get her life together by organizing and reading up on relationship books, but Renee calls her bluff, saying that Lynette should just accept she’s having issues with Tom. When Tom comes to pick up the kids, Lynette finds out that he’s been whitening his teeth and working out. Renee tells her that it’s a sign her husband has been sleeping with someone and Lynette refuses to believe this, saying that Tom would tell her if that was the case.
Bree has become increasingly afraid of checking the mail, worried that she’ll get another letter. While standing in the driveway talking with Gabrielle, Bree’s daughter Danielle comes by to visit. Danielle’s husband apparently left her, and Danielle wants to commiserate with Bree over their failed relationships. Bree tells Danielle she wants to attempt to help her put her life back together, but Danielle wants to "chill out" in the aftermath of her break-up. She threatens going to Andrew’s instead, and in an attempt to get Danielle to stay, Bree promises that she won’t criticize her – at least, not too much. Read More...
