Desperate Housewives Season 6, Episode 1: "Nice Is Different Than Good" - Recap

On the Season 6 premiere of Desperate Housewives, Lynette tries to come to terms with her unplanned pregnancy, Bree and Karl weigh their options, Susan and Katherine square off over Mike and Gaby squabbles with her unruly niece. Plus, Angie Bolen (Drea de Matteo) has moved to Wisteria Lane with her creepy family under mysterious circumstances. What were they running from? And how far will they have to go to fit in?


Well, this is an awful development. It turns out that underneath all Lynette's snark about not wanting to be pregnant again is some real antipathy. After getting a sonogram, she tells Tom that with all their other children, she loved them from the moment she knew was she pregnant. But... she doesn't feel that way about these twins. It's an awful feeling, for sure, and not one that I'm sure we want to see on television. But I trust Felicity Huffmann to navigate this tricky emotional territory and pull off this storyline without coming off seeming like a total monster.


Bree and Orson are clearly over, but she's still hesitant about embarking on an affair with Karl - and wouldn't you be? It's a credit to the writers that they're able to bury Bree's true emotions beneath layers and layers of Egyptian cotton sheets, er, repression. Instead of her sharing her feelings with Karl, she focuses on the quality of the decor - or lack thereof - in their chosen no-tell motel. But Karl is a lawyer, so he knows when he's getting snowed. By episode's end, they finally have their tryst, so consider this deception fully underway.
