Just checked in while Family Guy is in commercial: has Edie been that, well, heavy for the past few eps, or is it just tonight that I noticed it (the red dress at what looks like an intervention)?

Family Guy is in this one?

Edie looks pretty good to me.

FWIW, I don't think there is a show on the air right now with more MILFs in it than this one (the characters, not the actresses).

George's wood at the putt-putt course was classic.

Tom's assistant keeps looking better and better.

Well, Lynette just screwed her husband big time, and not in a good way.

I think the person to lose their life next week will be

Really felt this episode was finally trying to pull things together, almost to many things. I hope the finale does not seem rushed and that the answers are set up appropriately, not time to answer pt.1, then pt. 2, commercial; pt. 3 and pt. 4, another commercial....

Sure seems like a lot of info to cram into one episode.

I wonder when George will become to clever for his own good, doesn't necessarily seem like the smartest "stalker/maniac".

Carlos, the gay basher. Glad to see that Gabby just up and left him as he was screaming her name.

"This is the worst intervention I have ever been to."

Somebody must have bitched about the lack of color.

There was some great lines and stories in this one.

Carlos a serial gay basher.

Cool episode. I'm just getting caught up on this show, so I think I'm still not catching stuff, but it seemed to me George might get caught next week. Bree seemed to really be thinking hard after Rex was protesting his innocence.

I agree that George is really setting himself up for a fall. I cannot help but wonder who will not survive next week. I hope it's not another tease like it was when Mrs. Huber got killed and the ads touted it as being one of the main housewives.

Was she punishing Rex by making the bed, or is she that anal? I also think she would have been able to tell that someone had moved her panties, there is no way psycho would have got them back perfectly to Bree's standards.
Wouldn't they be able to tell by blood work that Rex has no actual drug in his system?

A little from Column A and a little from Column B.

Bree looked really possessed at that point. I think the notion that the whole town knows about her doing S&M has thrown her off the deep end. That, coupled with Rex's heart attack, she just seemed like she lost it. I think Bree's anal retentiveness is her coping mechanism.

Wouldn't they be able to tell by blood work that Rex has no actual drug in his system?
They wouldn't even think to look for that.

I don't know, he has made comments many episodes about his drugs not working, you would imagine instead of just upping the dosage his physician would see that his body has no trace of whatever it is he was trying to pump into him. But then again I have no real idea what a doctor would look for.

For the medications he would be on, it would be extremely uncommon for them to check on the blood levels.

They need to do a crossover with House, MD. He would figure it out!

Someone does die. Not a tease.
