I am so excited about this episode, tonight! It's the first time they've done a Halloween episode! I think it's going to be the craziest episode, yet! Crazy in a good way, of course.

Absolutely fantastic! Without a doubt, this season has surpassed my expectations. Tonight had the comedy, the mystery, and the emotional impact, all in perfect balance.

The funniest stuff was with the Hodge family. Absolutely hilarious! Watching Bree, Orson, Andrew, and Danielle, running from Bob and Lee's house, as Danielle goes into labor, was so freaking insane. Then, seeing Adam, dressed as Frankenstein, delivering the baby, as the Scavo children are looking through the window. LOFL!

Felicity Huffman, as always, delivers as Lynette. She's an amazing actress, and she is a delight to watch on this show. I'm so happy that Lynette is cancer free! So happy!

This stuff with Mike's father, and implying that Susan needs to keep an eye on him, is really interesting.

I loved the stuff with Bree and Danielle, after the baby was born. Very emotional.

Boy, Edie is on fire! Carlos and Gabby are in deep trouble, I fear.

Can't wait until next week!

Well, the baby didn't come out 1/2 black like I thought it would. That would have been a good twist for Bree to have to explain.

or extremely white.

also, what the hell was Lynette looking at when she was crying at the end? That sure as hell wasn't a possum (or opossum, however you want to spell it).

I couldn't tell but I thought maybe the cat that she mentioned earlier.

Loved the scene with Bree's family coming home in their costumes. "Was there punch in that rum?" And loved how the doctor asked if this had anything to do with Bree's fake pregnancy.

Who else thinks Mike's father has something to do with the mysterious room?

Another terrific epsode - surprisingly, with more genuine real moments that we usually get, without sacrificing the outrageousness we all love.

Great great episode. Shades of season 1 greatness. Daniel copying Bree was hilarious.

Not me. It's pretty clear what his purpose was, to make Susan wonder if Mike / her child will follow in the family tradition of murdering people.

I thought it looked like she killed the Gopher from Caddyshack.

First time I've watched an episode since the 2nd episode of season 2. It was pretty good. Don't know if I'd make it must watch every week but I'll have it on my DVR just in case.

i thought it looked like that as well. so why not call it a gopher? i know, a nitpick, but possums are damn ugly animals... not cute and cuddly like the caddyshack gopher.

and why oh why do susan's storylines have to be so over the top? if it's not over the top bumbling and ridiculousness, it's over the top emotion and jumping to conclusions.

you know, i thought that when Orson was drunk, and they said they needed frankenstein, they'd do something absurd like have a blanket/curtain covering danielle and pretending she was Bree. Then i realized that would only happen if it was a susan storyline, not bree.

Question for some...I missed a good chunk from season three. How did Bree's daughter get pregnant? Who's the father? And how old is the daughter??
