'Desperate Housewives' Season 6, Episode 9: What Becomes of the Brokenhearted - Recap

In only took nine episodes, but season 6 of Desperate Housewives is finally totally becoming unhinged. In last night's rather high-quality hour of dramedy, we witnessed not one, but two, suicide attempts, as well as a down-and-dirty firing that saw Carlos dismissing Lynette in the fallout after her pregnancy cover-up. Pretty good stuff, if you ask me. I mean, not good - I don't wish calamity on anyone! - but I'm pretty sure you know what I mean. Good for fictional television. And it looks like next week is keeping the Desperate crazytrain going, too, as it seems like near total destruction is coming to Wisteria Lane. I, for one, can't wait! Count me in!

But back to last night's action. The most shocking events, to me at least, seemed to be the suicide attempts. Both Danny Bolen, who was apparently heartbroken after being rejected by Julie and possibly irritated after seeing his parents arguing, and Katherine, still distraught over being dumped by Mike, tried to off themselves. At this point, we know that Danny woke up after his mother Angie discovered him passed-out next to an empty bottle of pills, but instead of answering to the name of Danny, he repeatedly told Nurse Mona that his name is Tyler. That, of course, is yet another seemingly worthless clue in the mystery of the Bolen family. We also learned tonight that it was Angie who killed someone, and that's why her family has been on the run for 18 years. And actually, there was yet another worthless Bolen clue! The exact date of whatever scandalosity that happened was Nov. 10, 1991. Whoa! This case is blown wide open for us viewers! So now we know the fact that Danny's real name is Tyler, the fateful date, and that Angie is the one who did whatever bad thing. Which all adds up to...nothing, really.

I think maybe Nick was the cop or something on Angie's case and decided to run away with her???
Plus I don't think Katherine was trying to kill herself, she is gonna say Mike did it or something.
