'Desperate Housewives': One Last Plot Twist-er
After a long absence, "Desperate Housewives" returned to the airwaves last night ("Welcome to Kanagawa") and the aftermath of the twister was revealed. (And, by the way, what did that title mean anyway? Was there ever an explanation of "Kanagawa"?)
We had been left with fates unknown for: Carlos (left lying in an outside doorway); the rest of Lynette's family - Tom and the kids; Ida - and her cat.
The relationship grew nicely between Lynette and Mrs. McCluskey and viewers could experience the loss of Ida - alas, we never knew her either! She was a pioneer baseball player - and a hero who saved Lynette's children. Very well-played as the story unfolded.
The scenes between Bree and Susan also were nicely played - and perhaps the funniest line of the night was when Susan's daughter asked her mom to smell the socks. Although Bree and her son Andrew had some heated, humorous exchanges over her arranging for him to date the contractor (who was an unusual character in the show because he actually had scruples!).
And a new mystery grows, centering on Katherine Mayfair. What was in that note? Any thoughts? We won't know for quite a while because that was the last original script for "DH" that was completed before the writers' strike...
So what will you "DH" fans be watching until the show returns?
