"Desperate Housewives" Rundown Episode 3: "The Game"

This week on "Desperate Housewives," the neighbors gather together for a rousing game of charades, though several of the women are there out of sheer gossipy curiosity, hoping to use the event as a way to find out more about Katherine's shady past. Aside from the guessing games, we get more Edie-Carlos-Gaby drama, Bree struggling to keep her fake pregnancy from Susan and Lynette's mother finding, uh, creative ways to get her daughter to eat.

For more about this week's episode, and to share your thoughts (spoilers ahead),

Susan — I think it's wise of Susan to veer away from having her neighbor be her OBGYN, and the part when she goes to the sketchy obstetrician (who takes a picture of her with his camera phone!) is pretty funny. Otherwise, there's not much to the Susan storyline this week, besides her confession that she's anxious about having a baby at her age.

Bree — I think Orson's getting some of the funniest lines lately! My favorite was when he suggests Edie not be last picked for charade games in light of her recent suicide attempt. Anyway, Bree has no problem gabbing with the ladies about what she witnessed at Katherine's house, but remains mum on the whole fake pregnancy thing. She comes close to admitting her secret to Susan, but ultimately decides against it. She and Orson learn that Danielle took a fall at the convent while rollerblading, though in the end the baby is saved.

Gaby — Jealousy strikes Gaby yet again when she learns of Carlos and Edie's engagement, so she gets back at Carlos by flirting with Adam, which also succeeds in igniting Katherine's rage. Carlos gets so angry at the sight of Adam touching Gaby that he smashes a glass, which only further endears him to Gaby.

Lynette — Interestingly, Lynette's mother Stella is well-versed in all things "chronic," and decides to score some pot for her sick daughter who has lost her appetite. She has Parker deliver the pot brownies to his mom who then thoroughly enjoys herself for an evening, though perhaps goes a bit too far when she points to Edie during charades to indicate Hang 'Em High. When she discovers the true reason for her happy state, however, she chides her mother, saying she doesn't want to be a stoned mom like Stella was.

Edie — Despite Carlos' wishes to the contrary, Edie wears her giant engagement ring to charades and coyly alludes to her betrothal to Carlos. This infuriates the supposed groom-to-be, so he makes a phone call to speed things up in terms of "getting rid of Edie." It turns out his cohort in this project is his accountant. Later, he has a little chat with Victor in which Victor casually mentions that he has no problem making people "disappear" if someone were to have an affair with Gaby.

Katherine — Katherine and Adam are tres hostile toward one another, no? It's clear Adam has a checkered past when it comes to other women, so when Gaby flirts with him at the charades party, Gaby and Katherine get into a heated argument. Gaby provokes Katherine until she tearfully tells the room that Dylan's father did the worst imaginable thing a father can do to a daughter. That shut 'em up. Back at the Mayfair house, Dylan and Julie break into the forbidden room full of Dylan's old stuff, but she still can't remember anything from her childhood. Katherine and Adam start clearing out the room for Katherine's aunt's stay, and Katherine reveals that she lied about Dylan's real dad doing that unimaginable thing.

What is going on with that house? Talk about bad karma. There was a chunk taken out of the floor. And why hasn't anyone fixed it since? There have been others living there. Surely they'd want to redecorate and such.

fleurfairy- very interesting. Could Carlos really do that though? He couldn't even leave her after she tried to hang herself because she was going through so much. I am very intrigued and just guessing as to what he may do. She obviously isn't 'fragile' anymore and he seems to have realized she is just a manipulative b!tch! Carlos and Gaby have always belonged together- I think we'll have to wait a bit to see them back together again.

mamaseacat, I agree about Susan being whiney and annoying. She is the worst part about the show. Her charcter has no substance. About the CPA thing-- not that I'm discrediting the theory about Carlos moving his money, but if his did put a hit out on her that was a good cover up. The mafia does stuff like that all the time. They have their regular day jobs, like being a CPA, a car dealer, an owner of a construction company and really they just do underground activities in the mob. So I wasn't shocked to see the CPA, if this guy is indeed a hitman. It's just a cover.

I loved it when Bree said, "It's not always about you, Susan." Someone needs to tell Susan to stop whining. Obviously DH is hinting that Dylan's father may have molested her, but chances are it's not that, and it's making me cRaZy!!! Maybe he was a wonderful father and loved Dylan so much and spent a lot of time with her. And with Katherine's jealously issues, maybe she cracked and killed him. Does anyone have any thoughts?

Lynette cracked me up with the hang him high thing. It was sad but funny! And can someone tell Edie to lay off the tanning bed???

After a mediocre last season, DH seems to be back. Katherine is a great addition to the cast. Like others, though, I hope that her storyline doesn't drag till season's end. Timing and pacing are all important to keeping the show interesting. Thus far, it's been a good season.

The "post-pot-brownie" Lynette was just hilarious ! Katherine is such weird ... seriously, I would be scared to have her as a neighbor.

Yeah, it doesn't seem like they can drag this Katherine and first-hubby storyline too long- everyone knows something is sketchy and her daughter can't just let it go. Maybe the aunt will have some answers. Lynette was the best with her karate kick and Edie/ Hang em high bit. So, obviously Carlos didn't put a hit on Edie, but is the CPA going to shift his secret cash to a different account so Edie has no proof of any money to hold against him? Anything to get Edie out of the picture-please!!!! I am scared of the mayor and what he'll do when he finds out about Gaby and Carlos. Can someone tell how no one (including her own husband) is even a bit curious or concerned by all the time Gaby is spending on Wisteria Lane instead of in the Mayor's Mansion? She is being a little to sloppy I think with this affair.
