DESPERATE HOUSEWIVES: In a World Where the Kings Are Employers

February 16, 2009 by  

Hey everyone! I hope you all had a great weekend. Desperate Housewives was new again last night and it looks like we’re setting up for a major confrontation between Dave and Mike. Not much else happened in this episode though. I liked but thought it was uneventful overall.

Susan is angry at how much time MJ has been spending with Katherine lately. It’s about to get a lot worse too; Katherine and Mike will be moving in together soon. This storyline made me realize how forced their relationship seems. We all know Mike and Susan are going to end up with each other in the end and it seems like we’re only bidding time right now. Don’t get me wrong, I’m happy that Katherine’s finally been given something to do, but at the same time it might have been better off for Katherine to have left the show after the end of last season. That way she would have gone out strong and wouldn’t have had to slowly fade away the way she is now. I have a feeling that she’ll be a big part of the Dave revenge plot coming up though, which I’m really excited for.

Tom and Lynette are about to lose the pizzeria so Tom gets the bright idea of replacing the wait staff with his own children. They of course aren’t so keen on this idea but do it anyway. All this leads up to Tom violently confronting one of the kids when they don’t want to wait on their classmates. My thought on this is that Tom is being a big baby as usual. He needs to step and recognize that his business is failing and if he doesn’t sell it he and his family are going to lose everything. And I thought Lynette was ridiculous at the end. I know that Tom was upset that he was losing his dream but he had just assaulted one of their children. She needed to confront him, not make out with him.

When Gabby and Carlos realize that he won’t be getting his big bonus this year they’re both upset, especially Gabby. Then she finds Bradley making out with a blonde girl who is not Maria. This of course works to her advantage and she ends up securing the bonus for Carlos. Maria, however, is growing closer to Gabby and even asks her and Carlos to be godparents to her baby. I’m not sure how Gabby is going to handle this. Even though she can be greedy she’s essentially a good person who’s going to feel very guilty about not telling Maria the truth.

Orson has discovered that Andrew makes twice as much as him and needless to say he’s not happy about this. Bree sees no wrong in this, however, and defends her choice saying that Andrew’s been with her from the beginning and is qualified to do the job unlike Orson who got the job only because he’s Bree’s husband. I agreed with Bree here. She has no obligation to supply Orson with a job. Instead of following in Bree’s path he should find his own.

That’s it for this week. There’s no new Desperate Housewives next week or the week after: it’s Oscar Sunday and then a two-hour Brothers and Sisters movie event. So see you back here in March!
