DESPERATE HOUSEWIVES: Being Alive - Give Me My Remote : Give Me My Remote


October 6, 2009 by  

Can I start by saying how relieved I am that Julie seems to be on the mend? I missed her last season and I’m glad she seems to be sticking around for the whole season. And most likely playing a major part in the mystery about who exactly strangled her. It also seems like Julie is entangled in the Bowen family mystery. My guess is that the boy she told Lynette about is Danny Bowen. I’m not convinced that he’s the one who strangled her though; that seems a little too obvious to me especially since he was arrested at the end of tonight’s episode. Now for something that I’ve been wondering about since last week; exactly how old is Danny? I assumed he was in his late teens and that makes any relationship with Julie inappropriate since I thought Julie was around 23-25? And if Danny is that old, his relationship with Anna is inappropriate since she’s in her teens. The five-year jump still has me confused as far as ages go so leave your thoughts below.

I’m enjoying Katherine as a woman on the verge. Her statement to Orson about Mike making a pass was ridiculous but Orson’s disbelieving reaction was hilarious. I think Katherine’s about to get a lot more crazy and I can’t wait.

Lynette’s confession about her pregnancy to Susan was moving. Her admittance that she wasn’t sure she wanted these babies was what she needed be able to realize that she did want them. Susan’s understanding even with Julie in the hospital showed how good of friends they are.

One thing I think is ridiculous was Susan’s statement that it would have been worse if Katherine slept with Karl instead of Mike. Susan still had feeling for Mike and she’s been divorced from Karl for more then ten years. Even though he hurt her I still think she should have moved on by now.

All in all, I thought the episode was good- just a little all over the place for me. It was hard to follow the timeline at points since so much time was spent jumping from storyline to storyline. I’m excited for John’s return next week though- I laughed out loud when Karl told him he still wanted to punch him in the preview.

Is anyone out there watching DESPERATE HOUSEWIVES? Thoughts on the new season thus far?

    Love your blog and your recaps! A slight correction though, Carlos said he wanted to punch John — not Karl.
