Bossy women run this street

Best episode of the season! This episode was the perfect storm of funny, sad, serious and side-splitting.

Loved that Bob and Lee are fitting into the neighborhood. We start out with Bob and Lee's new (hideous) fountain proving the wrath of the ladies of Wisteria Lane. Bree sums it up best with this quote "With all the gay men in the world, we get the two with no taste." But not to be outdone Mrs. McClusky asks Bree to talk to the gays with this line.

"Bree you should go talk to them you can relate to them. You had a son that came flying out of the closet and a husband that was looking for a doorknob."

We also had Bob telling an old neighbor "If you ever want to talk fashion, we're here for you."

Each of the ladies had her hands full as Bree had to deal with the ramifications of Danielle fleeing the convent, Lynette trying to save her kids' treehouse, Susan dealing with Bob and Lee's fountain and Gaby trying to juggle an affair with Carlos.

The best scene in the whole episode is when Lynette and Katherine campaigning for the office of the neighborhood association.

What the hell is going on here?: "Heroes" the very late recap

Because of the fires in San Diego, a lot of the regular programming was pre-empted because of the fire coverage. As a result, a lot of the shows were aired over the weekend. That being said, here's a quick and dirty "Heroes" recap.

When we last left off poor Molly was trapped in her nightmares and Matt and Mohinder were both lost about what to do. Molly before she conked out tracked down Matt's dad who apparently had connections to the old heroes. Matt hooks up with Nathan and they fly to Philadelphia to confront him. It turns out that Matt's dad is a louse and he's the one stalking the old heroes. We also learn he has abilities similar to this DC Comics character.
We also see that his dad his headed to get Bob who runs The Company.

We also learn that the Company has sent an agent to find Peter (Kristen Bell) and she's willing to kill to get answers. Unfortunately her first victim is the guy who owns the pub where Peter's been hiding. Peter and his new girlfriend are hiding out in an apartment and Peter accidentally taps into Issac's powers to paint where he should go next. (So I guess Peter "permanently" retains powers.)

In New Orleans, Micah helps Monica get in touch with her "copycat" powers. She apparently can do anything she sees, like muscle memory. Micah shows her a comic book that Issac did (He must have done a bunch before his death) and shows her a character called St. Joan (two guess who this is going to really turn out to be.)

In Japan, Ando gets help deciphering Hiro's writing and we see them prepare for the battle of "The White Beard." (YAWN!)

The episode ends with Mohinder showing up at Monica's door saying he needs to help her and Ellie ordered home by her Daddy.

Episode grade: B.
