Desperate Housewives Rundown Episode 5: "Art Isn't Easy"

Desperate Housewives Rundown Episode 5: "Art Isn't Easy"

Another Sunday, another juicy episode of Desperate Housewives. I am loving this season so far. This week's episode piqued our interest even more in what exactly went on "in Chicago," and featured all sorts of Wisteria Lane politics. I must say, however, that as much as I like that the two gentlemen are shaking things up on the street, that Lee is a prick. At first I thought he was just kind of snarky, but now he's reached full-blown obnoxious jerk status. I have a feeling his snide comments are going to get old. Also, because of this character I had a very difficult time seeing him as "The Nice Guy" patient on last week's episode of Scrubs.


Anyway, for more of my DH rundown (which includes spoilers, of course), read more

Susan — Wow, I can't believe that when it came down to voting between Lynette and Katherine she chose Katherine! I suppose that at that time she didn't know what the tree house meant to Lynette and her kids, but still. Some friend! I'm glad she and Lynette made peace in the end.

Bree — Using some good old-fashioned manipulation, Bree manages to convince Danielle that she would be better off having the baby at home, with Bree and Orson, instead of at Phyllis' retirement home. In the end, of course, it comes out that Phyllis is really just wretchedly lonely and wanted Danielle around because she misses family.

Gaby — "So, that's a negatory on the affair," Gaby informs John as she's yanking him out the door. Poor John Roland is now trapped in a loveless marriage with a baby on the way, so he seeks out Gaby for some TLC. The scene with Carlos hiding in the closet and listening to John talk about his affair with Gaby was classic! Then Carlos grows a conscience about the affair he's having with Gaby — just in time for the guy following Gaby and Carlos to snap a few photos of the two sharing a final kiss.

Lynette — It's heartbreaking to hear Lynette's kids talk about needing a place to go where there's no talk of cancer, so it's great that in the end they get to keep the tree house. Seeing Kayla again, though, reminded me that they sort of dropped that whole storyline from last season, no? She used to hate Lynette's guts and this season we haven't heard from her at all.

Edie — So she's the one who hired someone to follow Carlos around, instead of Victor hiring someone to follow Gaby. There was a blessed lack of Edie this week, though she did manage to wedge in a line about owning Carlos' balls.

Katherine — After trying to become the ruler of Wisteria Lane so she can get rid of the metal fountain thing, Katherine ends up telling Lynette she can keep the tree house anyway. Yet when she goes to remind Lee and Bob to remove their fountain, they mention that they know all about "Chicago." This huge Chicago secret better be worth all the shady mystery surrounding it.

I can't wait for next week when it looks like Danielle goes as Bree for Halloween!
