I quit watching a few episodes back because I basically lost interest. However, I'm interested to know what happened with George. Can someone fill me in?

George bought a house and surprised Bree with an engagement ring while his mother was excitedly watching, so she accepted his proposal because she didn't know what else to do. Then he threw an engagement party, where she flipped out and told him that she wasn't really sure about getting married right yet since Rex has only been dead for like seven weeks. She told George that her therapist told her to slow it down.

At the end of the show, we saw her therapist jogging over a bridge. George biked up and pretended he was stretching. When the therapist jogged past him, George punched him in the face and threw him off the bridge.

!!!

Also, boy in the basement is loose and got into Gabrielle's house and chased her, where she fell down the stairs.

freakgirl at November 14, 2005 10:35 AM

After the bridge seen I was trying to remember who commented George didn't seem the type to kill with bare hands. Looks like next week Bree is given some insight into George's lunacy. I yelled at my tv when she said "yes". I yelled "Idiot!" Somehow I keep channelling Napolean Dynamite. The next scene with the therapist helped ease my worries... man she really was pressured into marriage wasn't she. What with the mom and champagne and all.

I hope Gabrielle doesn't lose the baby. Also, does size 00 really exist? That's depressing.

Also... finally got started watching Grey's Anatomy and wow, totally hooked on that show. Dr. O'Malley? Love him!

whoops, seen = scene !!!

Wowsers, looks like I gave up on it too soon. Sounds better than it has been. I was dissapointed too, because this season so far has been a big ball of suck and it was one of my favorites last year.

chuck at November 14, 2005 11:00 AM

a big ball of suck.

hee!!

Soosan at November 14, 2005 11:02 AM

hi - george did everything i can think of to solidify my idea that he's a total sociopath. he bought a house in her neighborhood, he f-in killed her therapist because he was against the engagement. holy crap. i'm just waiting for that terrible thing that andrew is supposed to do to her.

susan this week - blah. i hope they bring her back soon. it just didn't sit well w/ especially her explanation that they were old friends...huh?

i loved the scavos. when they're play date couple turned out to be porn aueteur's...i was laughing so hard. after all the times of them feeling like the bad parents and all that, to realize they ain't half as bad.

i don't think gabrielle will lose the baby. i think it's the scare to wake her up about how she feels about everything. her marriage, her lifestyle, everything.

and caleb, do you think he's her son or he killed her daughter?

mason at November 14, 2005 11:34 AM

That's interesting. I just assumed that he was her child and she was trying to protect him while she figured out what really happened. But wow, maybe it was her daughter that died? I can't remember if they showed us a picture of her on the news report or not.

My guess was that he didn't kill the girl, but was there when it happened.

freakgirl at November 14, 2005 11:40 AM

Searching for ice cream and stumbled on a murder scene. :)

Soosan at November 14, 2005 11:46 AM

I've been thinking Caleb is the son that Alfre Woodard's character told her therapist was killed by her abusive husband. As soon as I realized Caleb was in Gabby's house, I just. knew. she would lose the baby somehow. If she doesn't, great! But I did like her a lot in this episode. I think Eva is finding her character, or maybe the writers are just getting better at fleshing her out.

And I hate to say this, but her butt looked really big in that teeny dress. I know she is small, so I don't get it.

elizabeth at November 14, 2005 12:31 PM

the only reason i don't think caleb is her son is the manner she speaks to him in. it's not how i envision a mother speaking with her child. it's much more matter of fact and without emotion, you know? i don't think any mother would lock her own child up like that, they would operate with the understanding that they themselves weren't in danger.

i've grown to like gabrielle. last year i liked her because she got john to take his shirt off, now she's much more human.

mason at November 14, 2005 12:35 PM

Something I noticed last night during the opening credits is that Marc Cherry himself actually wrote the episode. Then I went online and learned that he also wrote last week's episode. So I think we have an explanation for the improved quality. I wonder how long he'll keep doing it.

GeekBoy at November 14, 2005 12:54 PM

I didn't start watching until the last third or so of last season, but we DO know (or at least highly suspect) that the creepster pharmacist killed Rex, right?? I've thought that the entire time, am I wrong? So I wasn't surprised at all that he went after Bree's therapist; he'll do anything and I mean ANYTHING to get Bree, including drugging her. That part grossed me out, I may be way too dark but I think he r*ped her and then went and sat in the chair. I also think he hired Linda Danno to be his fake mom b/c she's way too suspiciously attractive to have such a grizz-oss son.

emily at November 14, 2005 01:02 PM

I dunno, she came across as I would imagine George's real mother to be. Bizarre and overly eager.

Soosan at November 14, 2005 01:26 PM

Yes, George killed Rex by giving him bad medication for his heart. I still don't think he raped Bree, though. We discussed this last week and we came to the conclusion that she would have noticed when she came to.

freakgirl at November 14, 2005 02:49 PM

ooh sorry my bad, didn't read last week's.

emily at November 14, 2005 02:59 PM

No worries! Anyway, I was totally wrong about George last week, so I could be totally wrong about this too. :)

freakgirl at November 14, 2005 03:05 PM

"And I hate to say this, but her butt looked really big in that teeny dress. I know she is small, so I don't get it."

Maybe she's having a butt pregnancy!

Anyone else watch this week's SNL?

Anyone?...

Rain at November 14, 2005 05:16 PM

In defense of Caleb, I thought it was more like he was lumbering towards an exit than chasing Gabrielle. Although Lord knows if I were Gaby I would have thought he was coming after me.

And I agree with freakgirl - I don't think George raped Bree. She would have felt... something... down there (sorry!) when she came too. Also no way could he have gotten her hose back on.

Jane at November 14, 2005 05:37 PM

Rain, that's frickin' hilarious. Good one.

freakgirl at November 14, 2005 06:20 PM

"Butt pregnancies are actually quite common."

"Uh, no they're not."

I still feel like everyone is kind of out of character, especially Bree. Bree is neurotic and weird, but she's also intelligent. When she was helping Gabrielle into her dress and the conversation they had after Gabrielle's party, she was smart and confident. When she's with George she somehow allows him to walk all over her. And what's with Bree's daughter smoking in a bikini trying to get Alfre's son to take her out? That was weird. Maybe they should have thought to give her some sort of personality beforehand so her behaviour this week didn't seem so out of left field.

Maggie at November 14, 2005 07:36 PM

I didn't even recognize Bree's daughter until her scene was half over. What the fuck was THAT?

freakgirl at November 14, 2005 10:31 PM

I immediately thought of freakgirl's post from last week when George pushed the therapist over the bridge. Ha! Dude's CRAZY! I hope he didn't die, though. I'm sick of psychos getting away with shit on this show.

I'm a straight chick so I guess I don't know what I'm talking about but I personally thought Eva's butt looked great in that dress.

Re: Bree's daughter. We do know she is a little sex-starved, though... didn't she totally come on to Jesse Metcalfe's character last year (I don't even remember his character's name... the gardener...)?

Cheri at November 14, 2005 10:54 PM

maybe they are trying to develop some sort of rebel attitude in the daughter to provide George with more ammo to get rid of yet another Bree child... but I'm hoping the previews next week mean that Bree is finally on to him.

If I could fit into a size zero dress... I wouldn't care what my butt looked like because I mean c'mon.. size zero!
