Hopefully we will see some Carlos mischief. And I'm missing the lack of Doug Savants character so far this season.

LOFL! This has got to be the quote of the night:

Stella, trying to convince Lynette to use marijuana to boost her appetite and ease her nausea, "Come on, let momma score you some kick ass chronic." Great line!

Oh, and Carlos "has a plan to get Edie out of our lives forever." I swear, he's either gonna have her whacked, or he paid that guy to sweep her off her feet.

Oh, my goodness! LOFL at Lynette being stoned out of her mind, and ninja kicking that lamp. Oh, and Bree sending Susan to that obstetrician on the seedy side of town! Hilarious!

What a terrific episode!

Okay, so Carlos isn't going to have Edie whacked. I didn't think he'd turn out evil. Victor, on the other hand....he'll have Carlos killed if he finds out about Gabby and Carlos.

Wow, absolutely awesome episode. Best episode of the season, so far.

What in the world is Katherine hiding? She's lying about what happened, to throw people off the track. What is the deal with that chunk taken out of the floor, and why is she crying? I believe she killed her husband, but, why?

I'm really loving this season!

So, was that an ax mark under the carpet?

Sure looked like it. However, why would Katherine spend all of that money fixing the place up, but, keep that spot in the floor. So weird, this mystery. I'm sure it will be great, but, like the Season 1 mystery, it's going to drive me crazy trying to figure it out.

I too didn't believe Carlos would ever off Edie. Also, didn't think that the whole Carlos-Gabby-Edie triangle was going to get more complicated until Victor showed up and disclosed what he would do if he found out the First Lady of Fairview was cheating on him.

I'm still trying to figure out the mystery of why they decided to have Dana Delany (51) married to a 15-year-younger Nathan Fillion (36). Every time I see them together on the show, it just doesn't look right.

She's 51?! I had no idea. She doesn't look a day over 40, to me. I don't think of them as an odd couple, at all.

She definitely looks the oldest of the housewives. IMDb says she was born in 1956:

That puts her at about 38 during Exit to Eden.

I watched Dana Delaney when she was on China Beach, and she's been a favorite of mine ever since. That was almost 20 years ago. I feel old...

Well, it looks like Carlos hired a CPA to dirty up Edie.

Lynette on the weed-laced brownies should be a weekly event.

Susan going to Bree's "gyno" was good for some icky laughs.

Catherine and that gash in the floor... something bad really happened in that room.

The only thing stupid about that set up is that Susan already HAD an OBGYN. Adam Mayfair wasn't her normal doctor when he had to fill in during her last appointment. So why didn't she just go back to her normal guy?

I'm kind of bored with the Bree, Edy and Gabby storylines. I'd be more interested to see what's going on at the pizza place honestly...

Maybe that's why her character's jealous every time he looks at a younger woman ... and why his character keeps checking them out.

When Gabby palm slapped Carlos in the head I was dying. That combined with a stoned Lynette was a great episode.
