Last night’s episode of Desperate Housewives was called “A Spark. To Pierce the Dark.” and finally gave viewers some action as far as the Dave Williams/Dash murder plot was concerned. Of course, instead of Dave exacting revenge on Mike, all he was able to do was very, very indirectly have a helping hand in Edie’s death. So because both Katherine and Mike are still breathing, I guess Dave is still at square one in his plan. Sigh. And since Edie was the only one who knew about Dave’s real identity and intentions, the “mystery” will be dragged out even longer. Double sigh.
– I loved seeing Karl again. He’s the only guy that Susan has ever had any kind of chemistry with, so it’s fun having him around. But why does he have to have a creepy kid? I thought the kid’s drawings were going to be from video games or something — not fantasies about killing his mom because she left them. Yikes.
– So Lucy was an awesome character last week, a kick-ass career gal who really had things together. Then this week she’s suddenly all touchy about little imported figurines and can’t have a conversation without putting people down? Riiiight.
– Wow, the Orson storyline has become even more ridiculous than I thought possible. He’s not content with merely swiping trinkets now, he has to resort to breaking and entering?? He and Bree used to be such an interesting couple, but now I hit the FF button whenever they’re on the screen.
– Good call by Gaby. She and Carlos are definitely back to Season 1 form, with him being gone all the time and just trying to buy her expensive gifts to make up for it. I wonder if they’ll be capable of learning from their past mistakes this time around or if there’s going to be more cheating up next.
– Farewell, Edie. You were never one of my favorite characters and I can’t say I’ll miss you, but I do wish you’d gone out with more of a bang. Electrocution after a car crash? Boo! You should have at least taken doofus Dave with you!
