A few comments...
Mike brought up Susan burning down Edie's house as a reason for not bringing up the journal, but Susan already confessed that to Edie, so what is the problem here?
What was that pink shirt Gabrielle was wearing? Nightmares people, nightmares.
Lynette is becoming my favourite character, and yay for the twins coming back in the next episode, they live!
Bree and George... ick. She kept getting hives out of guilt, and then slept with George out of guilt. Looks like guilt is her weakness. I want this storyline to resolve itself real soon, smarten up girl!
Lastly, off the topic of housewives, but on the topic of I'm just so proud I have to share. While watching the show I finished my very first knit sweater. Most surprisingly, it actually fits and doesn't look hideous!
It bugged me when George showed up at Bree's house and she excitedly invited him in saying, "The kids are both gone for the evening, we have the whole house to ourselves." Well yeah, we know Andrew isn't there because you shipped him back to crazy camp. Sloppy writing.
That scene where the entire boardroom snickered at Lynette's wardrobe was appalling. Perhaps it would have made more sense if the writer's had indicated in the past that she wasn't dressing up to par or had been showing up with baby puke on her lapel. And Joely making a scene over the skirt tag instead of discretely tucking it in while in front of a client?? Grrr. She certainly could have given Lynette shit about it later rather than compromising the pitch.
Glad to see from the previews that they haven't completely forgotten about the Johnny Basement plotline because Lord knows I had.
Soosan, word about that pink top. Ack!
Okay, forgive me but I was trying to do two things at once. Sort laundry and watch. I should know as a man, even a gay, this is not possible. I totally thought George was lying when he told Bree that he just sat there and watched her. Am I completely off?
Last season it was all Susan who got the good story lines. This year it's Lynette. I just love every single time she's on the screen and I can't wait for her to get her revenge.
I'm also finding Gabrielle's 'awakening' into adulthood, and mutual reciprocity in relationships so cool. She's never been without a man to take care of her. Now that she HAS to do everything for him I think she's beginning to see what it's all about.
Susan got what was coming to her. What she did was awful, no matter the reason. It was so hard to watch, but I actually that was the best scene of the show.
Mason, I got the distinct impression too that George HAD taken advantage of Bree while she was passed out. Which is totally ick.
rain - I'm glad I'm not the only one who thinks that man is creepy enough to have sex with an unconcious woman, but then act as if nothing happened. He's a total sociopath.
and soosan congrats, the fact that you got a finished product is worthy enough. but then to have it actual resemble something...
I wasn't sure either. If he had taken advantage of her, he would have taken the care to dress back up again. Double ick. Whether he did or did not, that character is creepy with a K.
In total agreement over the Susan storyline. As Napolean Dynamite would say "Gawd, Idiot!" She completely deserved how Mike reacted, but still, it was pretty devastating to watch.
and thanks Mason! I have finally graduated from scarves and hats (tho I still have a sweet spot for knitting scarves)
I didn't think he took advantage of her. Bree may be stupid lately, but you'd think she'd know if even one friggin' hair was out of place. I really believed he put her in a dangerous situation in order to prove to her that he would never put her in a dangerous situation. You know what I mean? Twisted.
George did kill her husband, right?
The reason why I didn't think that George took advantage of her was because she was still wearing her pantyhose. No way a man would be able to get those back on her - right? Who knows?
yeah, George killed her husband, but he did it clean, with pills. He just doesn't strike me as someone who would commit a violent act like, with his hands.
I don't know.
freakgirl - I never thought of it that way. It fits though, even better than him taking advantage of her. Sociopaths at what I assume are his level, are meticulous planners to get to the goal. If the goal is to get Bree to marry him, he wouldn't risk it by taking advantage of her. Not because taking advantage of her is wrong, but because the possibility that he might get caught exists.
I don't know...the whole staring leering down at her passed out body while he slowly took off his tie just felt like a set-up for his raping her...but maybe they were just trying to drive home the fact that he COULD do that, even if he didn't...
I think that's it, Rain. They were just showing us what he's capable of, while creating suspense right before the commercial break. But ugh. I got such a gross feeling in the pit of my stomach when he loosened his tie.
As a woman who has had a fair amount of sex, (sorry if that's TMI) I would certainly know it upon waking if someone had raped me while I slept. I'd be able to feel it afterward, pantyhose notwithstanding (very good point, btw).
I think Lynette needs to try to get Joely Fisher fired. That would be fun to watch, even though I enjoy what a superb bitch Joely Fisher can be, after that Zoe Busiak crapola.
Did anyone read the article about the man in the basement getting fired from the show?
I think what we were seeing with Bree at the end of the show was her realizing that George + drugs = dead Rex. I got a spine-chilling feeling watching her sit there, fingering her bare ring finger, staring at sleeping George -- it reminded me of Kimberly at her most demonic on "Melrose Place."
I never gave it one moment's thought that George might have killed Rex. If he did he should really get his,and I hope Bree gets to give it to him. I thought Rex played a really good part and hated to see him leave the show. George is a real psycho and I hope he gets caught before he really goes nuts, I don't think the show should focus on so much murder or this violence.
