The girls are back!
Oh Susan, Bree, Gaby and Lynette, I've missed you. Thankfully, you were worth the wait!. Photo by ABC.com
After what seemed like the longest writers' strike ever, new shows came back. The TV season isn't a total loss but you could tell that things are rushed and different.
"Desperate Housewives" came back on Sunday and it was in prime form. Kudos to Dana Delany for giving another stellar performance. (If there's any justice, she'll get an Emmy come fall).
This episode picked up the Mystery of Katherine's past and we learned that Katherine slept with Susan's underaged cousin back in the day. He's back on the scene because Susan apparently is too dingy to figure out TurboTax. She spends most of the episode deflecting Tim's attention to underaged girls only to find out that he slept with Katherine and we learned that he saw Katherine hit a man.
Lynette and Bree struggled over church. Lynette had questions about how she survived cancer and a tornado and wanted to get closer to God. Bree was embarrassed when Lynette kept interrupting the service to ask questions. When Lynette finally confided to Bree her motivation, it provided the "awwww" moment of the episode.
Gaby was so in love with Carlos that she believed him that when he said that he would only be blind for a few months. After Edie did some snooping, Gaby learned the truth.
The girls are back in town (at least for another five episodes.)
Episode grade: A+
