Review and Recap of Desperate Housewives Episode, "Careful the Things You Say"

Desperate Housewives Rundown, "Careful the Things You Say"

It's another typical week on Wisteria Lane in the latest episode of Desperate Housewives. It's not the most scandalous episode thus far, but there are still plenty of lies, secrets, betrayals —and it all ends up with Susan behind bars.

To discuss what else went down with the ladies, just


Susan: After Angie's warning, Susan is now dedicated to making sure Katherine is investigated for Julie's attack. Unfortunately the cops seem less interested with Susan than with their sandwiches and pickles, but a female officer named Debbie offers to take the case. Of course, nothing is ever that simple with Susan, and it turns out that she made Denise's life hell back in high school by giving her the nickname of "Moose." Naturally, Moose still wants revenge and she gets it — by throwing Susan behind bars for shooting Katherine.

Lynette: Lynette's pregnancy is put on the back burner this week, and instead she finds herself deeper in the midst of Julie and Nick's drama. She tries to tell Nick to back of Susan's daughter, but when Nick threatens Lynette, she decides it's time to go to the police — against Julie's will. I was glad that she didn't let Nick scare her into silence with Tom, but I still think Susan won't be pleased when she discovers that Lynette has kept another secret from her.


Gaby: Gaby's life as a tutor quickly comes to an end. When Juanita refuses to learn from her mom, their new housekeeper Ivana steps in to help. Gaby is thrilled with her new life that doesn't involve teaching or scrubbing floors, though it's pretty amazing when Gaby has to do a few chores to get Ivana out of a bind. In the end she explains to Carlos that tutoring is ruining her relationship with Juanita, and Carlos lets her off the hook. Meanwhile, where are Celia and Ana? Suddenly behaving like perfect little angels?

Bree: Bree is put into an awkward situation when a dinner date with the Bolens turns out to be an audition for Angie to take Katherine's spot with Bree's catering company. Clearly put off with Angie's demeanor, Bree blows her off — until a client comes in wanting some old-fashioned Italian food. Bree tries to manipulate Angie into giving up the recipes, but Angie finds Bree out. The ladies learn they have more in common than they thought, and Bree agrees to give Angie a job. I'm enjoying this new partnership, especially since Bree is so uncomfortable around Angie. Meanwhile, Orson continues to try to unravel Bree's lie about the brooch, but doesn't make much progress.

Angie: I have to say that I kinda fell in love with Angie this week. Though she's clearly the hardass of Wisteria Lane, she seems genuinely sweet trying to impress Bree with her cooking skills and offering Lynette a glass of wine. She even takes Nick back after admitting that she knew about his affair with Julie all along — though not without a swift punch in the face first. She may have a checkered past, but Angie seems to be able to take care of herself just fine.

Did you like this week's episode? Are you starting to root for Angie or do you still think she can't be trusted?

I am actually growing to like Angie more and more. I'm anxious to find out who strangled Julie..I thought it was Nick for the longest time..never considered Angie but that could very well be true.

I bet Angie strangled Julie as Fushaa suggested. She gave her cheating husband an alibi, which in turn gives herself an alibi too. She seems like a tough chick, and she has a checkered past that has required them to change their names. And she totally freaked about the gun Nick lent to Julie because it was registered under their old name. Perhaps she has killed in the past? I really doubt that all she would do is punch him in the nose for cheating. I like this angle better; Nick strangled Julie because she dumped him is just too obvious.

I also like angie, I think that her husband probably did strangle Julie. It is obvious but DH has been pretty obvious as of late. I hope Drea De Matteo stays around, she is funny and i like every scene she is in. Bree needs to eat something.

i dig angie b/c she is real and puts everyone in their place. we know she's hiding something, but naturally her character seems good-hearted (unlike the other newcomers). also dig how she put bree in her place!

I think they made Angie the stereotypical New Yorker; I'm not sure I like that and they could have given her and her husband a better wardrobe. She still can't be trusted in my opionion, I think Angie is the one who strangled Julie since she knew about the affair the whole time. Susan and Katherine get on my nerves; Gaby will always be Gaby; Orson's character seems pointless now and Bree needs to get her life together. If the affiar comes out, she will lose Susan as a friend, no doubt and what happened to Lynnette's kids? They seem to have disappeared!

I prefer Angue to Katherine but I bet it was Nick that strangled Julie, he is definitely very creepy. Bree gets on my nerves and I'm so happy that Angie put her in her place, it looks like things are going to blow up for her very soon with the affair. can't wait till next week.
