Pretty funny episode, with the teacher thinking Susan is a lesbian. Swoosie Kurtz was great in the role. I love when she was telling Susan that she was afraid of the lesbian inside, trying to get out, and Susan said, "Actually, I'm afraid of the lesbian outside, trying to get in." LOFL! That was a great line.

Loved all of the stuff with Gabby and Lynette. Also loved the scene when Bree returned the "sleeping Mexican" to Gabby's, only to find out it is Mrs. McCluskey's. Gabby thinking Juanita took it, then Bree defending Juanita, until Juanita said "Maybe she took it", and Bree saying, "When my children stole, I sent them to bed early, without any supper." LOFL!

Dave has finally put his plan into action. It appears, from the preview, that next week it will all come to a head. Excited to see it, but, not looking forward to
Spoiler:
a housewife being killed, which will likely be Edie, since Nicolette Sheridan is leaving. I had read that her last episode wouldn't be until April, but, maybe they've moved it up?

I agree, particularly Gabby's bewilderment that Carlos used to tap that. Loved the Gabby, Bree, and Juanita scene.

I also loved the scene with Susan telling about her lesbian kiss around the table with the other housewives and the gay guy said something about how gay men never interact with lesbians outside pride parades.

It seems as if Dave is intentionally not targeting MJ in his revenge plot. I guess he must have some conscience left.

Well and then following the "demo" when Susan said the kiss was more like the 2nd one, Lee is like, "See you at the parade."

It is odd how they are proceeding. It seems like Dave is more looking to punish Mike to the life he himself has been resigned to now that his wife and kid are dead. Why would he not off Katherine and MJ? Obviously there is going to be some radical twist where Dave is going to be horribly wrong about the whole thing, and it was Susan's fault.

Great episode! Susan was actually fun to watch for a change.

Dave is just... bah! Creepy guy!

Carlos saying he wasn't shallow before he met Gabby doesn't quite fit. I'll agree his character was humbled after losing his sight and money - but prior to that, he and Gabby basically deserved each other.

Did they mention when he was living with Lucy?
