Desperate Housewives disappointed most viewers last season with its less than stellar follow-up to an amazing first season. However, now that the pressures of the sophomore slump are over, Marc Cherry promises to return to the original DH that we were all sucked into. In case you forgot, at the end of last season Gabrielle discovers that Carlos and Xiao Mei are having an affair. Gabrielle promptly kicks Carlos out of the house, but insists that Xiao Mei stay and do her job while she is carrying the couple's child. Tom admits to Lynette that he has a teenage daughter, the product of a one night stand. His daughter and her mother buy a house down the street and are determined for them to all become one big happy family. Susan decides she is going to propose to Mike and they will be together once and for all. On his way to meet Susan, Mike gets run over by the mysterious new dentist, Orson who it seems has taken a liking to Bree. Poor Bree, why does she always get stuck with the psychos? Maybe because she is one herself? At the end of the episode she escapes from the Fairview Meadows Psychiatric Hospital and comes home to find Orson on her front lawn with flowers.
So what will happen this season? The previews look mighty juicy! Bree is in a wedding dress and Susan seems to think she is making a big mistake. It looks like Gabrielle is in bed with John again and Lynette is having a hard time merging the extended family. I think this season is going to be good! Watch the premiere tonight at 9/8c on ABC.
