Lynette's story with Tom's psycho daughter really dragged this ep down whenever they were on screen.

Gabby and the gay neighbors were great

So did I. Glad they didnt go down that route. The little girl needs to go away.

Loved the scene with the neighbor pretending to be straight and coming on to Justine Batman.

Pretty good episode, but I find myself hating Susan and Mike more and more every week. I guess that the possible spoiler is out there on many sites now, but:

Spoiler:
it's rumoured that the season finale (which I think is the last two episodes of the season) fast forwards a few years, and some of the cast members aren't around anymore, like Susan's daughter. Not sure how valid it is though

That girl who plays the psycho daughter does a great job selling it. She creeps the hell out of me.

Please tell me that wasn't Mallory from Family Ties. Age has not been as kind to her as, say, Alyssa Milano.

Not the best of comparisons since Justine Bateman is 7 years older than Alyssa Milano. Plus Justine Bateman was never in Alyssa Milano's league to begin with.

What's weird is that Justine looked a little better on "Men in Trees" last season, but she appears to look a little skinnier on "Desperate Housewives" last night.

Perhaps they uglied her up some to make her look more convicing as a drug dealer (assuming she's also using).

I thought Justine looked pretty good. She is in her 40's now.

It is nice to see a Hollywood actress actually look her age, and not Botoxed to death.

I agree. Maybe people are used to that Botoxed look now.
