I was thinking maybe Rex didn't die. All we saw was a phone call. No Bree with the body, etc. Maybe he staged his death to get away from her since he thinks she was the one that poisoned him?
I doubt it, but I guess I can't rule it out. He was gasping for air when he wrote that note to Bree.
Oh, yeah, I think he's dead. Although I did think his time would have been better spent - oh, calling the NURSE instead of writing that note!
I think that Mike is Zach's biological father.
I laughed when Zach yelled at Susan "How stupid are you?"...or something like that.
Yeah, I'm wondering if next season will focus on the whole Mike/Zach possible relationship.
I thought this was an amazing season ender. I just feel badly that Rex died thinking Bree was trying to kill him and the pharmacist didn't get his ass kicked.
I hope it doesnt, FG. I hate Zach so bad and I cant stand to watch him. Ick ick ick.
I'm sort of bummed Rex died. I thought the dynamic between him and Bree was the most interesting of all the couples-- him wanting her to be more emotionally available, her trust issues, etc. They could have done a lot more with it than what they did. But maybe that'd be too drama and not slapstick-soap opera.
The air hockey scene was AWESOME. Kevin! You're not bringing it!
And, "You win this one, you'll get your bike back."
I agree, that was a great episode! Gay Matt was awesome, especially at the kitchen table with Lynette, "Oh, I've thought about it. You're going back to work!" ha!
I just read that the actor that plays Zach was just arrested on marijuana possession. His character freaks me the hell out.
And as creepy as Paul has been, I felt such sympathy for him last night. The writers did a good job with him, and he's a good actor.
I'm hoping hoping hoping Rex isn't really dead, b/c he and Bree have great scenes together. I guess we all could've seen it coming after that heartwarming scene in the hospital, though.
I just read something on Yahoo that asked whether or not Rex was really dead. Hmm. Or did I read it wrong?
The featured Yahoo article has this sentence, j.go. Is that what you read?
"Did Rex, husband of Bree, really die from heart disease on the eve of his surgery, as his doctor reported to Bree — or was this some sort of ruse by the doctor, who figures her to be the culprit behind Rex's illness?"
Hey, maybe Rex will narrate the shows next season, instead of Mary Alice! Heh.
(I totally want props for that if it really happens.)
Did anyone catch the "missing scene" on ABC this morning? They did an interview with Rex too.
I'm pretty sure they will do some sort of Mike/Creepy Zach story. It will be interesting to see if Zach kills Mike before he gets a chance to find out that Mike might be his father.
Good call GeekBoy. I wonder if they did have Rex narrate next season though if they would think they have to kill someone off every season to narrate the next.
Holy crap, that'd be awesome. I am so done with Sue Ellen Mishke.
What was the missing scene?
I think next season's "big secret" is going to have to do with the newest residents of their neighborhood -- from CNN.com: "And, by the way, why would Betty (new cast member Alfre Woodard) be so rash as to purchase a home on Wisteria Lane sight unseen -- as her real estate agent, dishy Edie (Nicollette Sheridan) asked her in wonder."
Taking a druggy's baby and then hiding out in the same town where one of your co-workers used to live makes about as much sense as hiding Luke Skywalker on the same planet his father was born on.
Jesus, is that how they write their TV recaps or commentaries over there at CNN.com? Remind me never to go there. "Dishy Edie"? Sheesh.
Anyway, good show. Got enough answers. Left enough hanging. Thought Susan leaving the messages for Mike was pretty funny. Thought Zach was pretty creepy. At the very end, when Mike walks into his house, and the screen goes black, Maggie and I were like, "Where's the gunshot? Shouldn't there have been a gunshot there?"
I was waiting for the gunshot, too.
I think we were all waiting for the "blam!"
(What "missing scene" did they show on "Good Morning America" this morning? Their Web site doesn't give any information.)
"Angela" hiding her ill-gotten family on the same freaking STREET where co-worker's sister lives - dumb.
Being so in love with a fucking junkie that you would not only kill a cop to save, but also, 17 years later, kill for once again - dumb. She was NOT A GOOD PERSON, drugs or no. Why is Deirdre more important to Mike than Susan? I don't understand.
Doctors not discovering that Rex's problems were due to a surplus of potassium in his body? I'd guess a simple blood test would figure that out...I'm pretty sure that potassium imbalance is a common cause of feeling unwell and is checked regularly in blood tests.
Okay, I'll stop trashing the show. Lynette sat at home waiting for the Wrath of Tom, but instead it turned out she was like Brer Rabbit in the briar patch. "Oh yeah, you go out and earn a living! That's your punishment!" I'm guessing next season their storyline will be a complete flip, with the addition of Tom being sorely jealous that Lynette will rapidly progress professionally where he could not.
I still don't understand Mrs. Hubersister's love for Zach. I understand wanting to avenge her sister's death, but I don't understand the need to care for Zach as a son.
Alfre Woodard's son? Yes please! From a distance he looked way too young to ogle, but when he spoke? Swoon!
Tiny URL just isn't working lately, huh?
The GMA scene was of all the "wives" sitting in the hospital with Bree. It takes place JUST after Susan tells them she found the journal. It's basically them just discussing whether or not they should have brought the note they found originally to the police and would that have stopped Mrs. Huber from being killed. They also go on to discuss how shady Paul Young is and they are all very suspicious of him.
I hope I'm not leaving anything out. I think that was it. I watched it pre-coffee this morning so please forgive me.
Maggie, my prediction is that along with Tom being jealous of Lynette's success in the business world, she'll be jealous of his success with the kids at home. I'm betting he'll make a great Mister Mom, and will leave Lynette feeling all the more inadequate as a mother and housewife.
As for the missing gunshot at the end, I think Marvin the Martian said it best: "Where was the earth-shattering kaBOOM?"
I'm assuming and hoping that the season-opener will start exactly where we left off; with Mike walking into his house.
Did it strike anyone else that we only have Paul's word that his version of things is the correct one? After all, he's hardly going to tell Mike that he's the one who gutted Deirdre. And will Tom be the new Desperate Housewife next season - hope so. I love him.
I think it was Mary Alice. Because right before Paul told Mike their story, Mary Alice the VO said, "And right then, Paul began spilling all my secrets and truths" or something to that effect. THE VO CAN'T LIE! ;)
I am with Mary - I'm not believing Rex is dead til I see the body! During his conversation with the doctor, they never said, oh and you'll probably die before the operation. So I think he and the doctor came up with some plan. No one will convince me otherwise! =)
And I am soooo excited about Alfre Woodard joining the cast. If you haven't seen "Passion Fish", go rent it.
Immediately after the show ended, I thought the same thing as geekboy - I hope Rex narrates the season next year. Especially since Mary Alice's story seems to be all wrapped up. And I was totally waiting for the gun shot as Mike walked into his house but I'm really glad that there wasn't one.
Did anyone else watch Good Morning America? When they interviewed Steven Culp he made it seem like he was done with the show. I would love for him to do the VO next season or still be alive... His character was great, but from what he said he seemed done.
Changing narration might be fun, but I really can't imagine Rex doing voiceovers about Susan's or Edie's love lives. That would be creepy with a capital ew.
