Brian Austin Greene seems a little too perfect as Bree's potential boy toy.

I wonder how long it will be before he shows us that he has some evil intent.:angryfire

I thought for a minute last night that it was going to end when he couldn't (wouldn't?) discuss the play. Ultimately, Bree wants someone who can discuss the symbolism of the angel. But sure, "evil intent" is a biggie on DH.

Gaby's storyline is the only one that really has me sucked in this season. Although I'd love to hear Mary Alice comment on Paul's reappearance in a more personal way, if that makes sense - she's talking about him in the same tone she's used for all the past mysterious neighbors that she had no connection to. (At least up until now - I haven't seen the last episode)

paul scaring the crap out of self-righteous susan may be the best DH moment since he gave martha h. what she deserved.

I don't know if Bree's new boy toy has any evil intentions. Maybe he will eventually but he seemed to get into this relationship by complete accident. He was simply working for her, even had a girlfriend at the time he started. I think he will go as swiftly as he came, without a lot of commotion.

I must have missed something ..... what happened to Bree's "Mrs. VanDeCamp's" business or whatever that catering thing was she did? It seems like she doesn't have that business anymore?

She signed it over to Rex's son last year when he blackmailed her about Andrew running over Carlos' mom

And there must have been a non-compete clause, because she doesn't do anything except have sex and redecorate her house these days :)

They need to move several of these storylines along, and soon! I recently rewatched season 2, and while I didn't remember that as being as good as season 1, it was way better than this season and the end of last season.

That said, the Applewhite storyline was pathetically absurd.

I really like the Gaby/Carlos storyline and the Bree/Keith storyline, but I clearly like them for different reasons. Gaby/Carlos have such a powerful storyline while Bree/Keith, I just love seeing Brian Austin Green half naked (I guess I am _that_ shallow). But I do think that all of this needs to move faster! I am really curious to know what's going on with Paul Young and when the horrid "I'm doing porn, but not" Susan storyline will finally wrap up with her getting caught. I think some of my favorite shows are ones where teh action is mostly non stop and things move at a really quick pace and this show is just slow and tedious!
I feel like it's always been that way, or maybe in the first few seasons it was ok because we were still getting to know these characters, but now I just find myself being impatient and wanting things to move along already!

I think Gabby will have her bio daughter in her house for awhile, and realize they are both too much alike to live in the same house.

I don't see that happening. Maybe she will have her over for a slumber party with the girls but if anything it will turn into a Gabby/Gracie all night party while her girls are left in their rooms to play with each other. I think they have to be careful how they play this storyline. How would a person look if they admitted "well, good thing she got switched at birth because I couldn't live with her!" I don't think the people in charge of this show want us to hate Gabby that much, haha.

[QUOTE=Cupid;2917633]Lynnette's MIL seems such a nice lady and it was sad how Lynette reminded her how her waiting on her husband hand and foot didn't do her any good as her husband left her for another women. Sad, too, that it seems the MIL has Alzheimer's signs.

If I were Lynnette, I'd go bananas too!

I am a bit tired of seeing Susan half naked and her boobs almost popping out...

Brian Austin Green is HOT!

Paul Young is frustrated with his wife, Beth, tells her to leave by the end of the week and she calls her mother. Apparently her mother refuses to let her come "home" (wherever that is) and Beth so wants her to "be proud" of her, she comes to Paul's rescue against Susan and finally kisses him, (etc.?) Mother is very persuasive, who is she?

Re Tom's mother, I hadn't heard of the term "sundowning" before. Interesting and well-handled situation, though sad.

I thought that was well done. As someone who has a great-grandmother and my late grandmother who experienced such things, it was nice to see the show indicate that someone doesn't go from fully functional to unable to remember anything at all overnight. It is usually a gradual progression that is hard for those of us close to the person have a harder time seeing. You sometimes begin to suspect and then they pop out with something that indicates they are just fine.

I had heard the term before when my great-grandmother began showing signs. She would be just fine in the morning and early afternoons, but after her afternoon naps she would begin to become confused. This went on for quite a while before everyone in the family would agree that there was a problem.

An enjoyable episode, I thought. At least some things happened!

I bet Beth's mother is Felicia Tillman, that would make the most sense. I mean, what other older woman has a grudge against Paul? Mary Alice's mother, who we've never heard from?

I loved Susan going after Paul with MJ's bambam bat, but do little kids even know who BamBam is anymore?

I have to imagine they are going to bring Zach back into the show somehow.

And I felt bad for Juanita, don't know what they are going to do with this storyline.
