Edie's husband is already a ‘Desperate’ man

The cat came back: "Housewives" jumped right into the Edie's-new-husband-is-a-psycho plot. After Karen McCluskey delivered a fairly innocuous barb, by McCluskey and Edie standards, Dave demanded she apologize to his wife, and held innocent kitty Toby hostage until she did just that.

The cat came back: "Housewives" jumped right into the Edie's-new-husband-is-a-psycho plot. After Karen McCluskey delivered a fairly innocuous barb, by McCluskey and Edie standards, Dave demanded she apologize to his wife, and held innocent kitty Toby hostage until she did just that. Dave's chilling, yes, but why would Edie even be offended by the line that her "breasts were a triumph of German engineering"? That shouldn't even rate a tremor on the Edie Insult Richter Scale. The other line Karen tossed off, about how Edie is "easier to get into than community college," was much funnier, and more insulting.

Winning fame, but losing love: Bree forgets about husband Orson in her rush to gain fame and promote her cookbook, "Mrs. Van De Kamp's Old-Fashioned Cooking." Orson's hurt that she's publishing the book under her first married name (Ah, Rex! Remember Rex?) and in the end, pulls a weird fit because Bree blew off her promise to make him pot roast one too many times. (Pot roast? Who really craves pot roast?) We learn that Bree and Orson separated and he served time for running over Mike after learning that his going to jail was the only way Bree would take him back.

Creepiest plot of the week: Leave it to Lynette. When she hears a classmate of Porter's was busted dealing drugs, she pretends to be a high-school girl and flirts with her own son via a Facebook-type site. Even when they start discussing romantic poetry it doesn't dawn on our Mom of the Year that her own son is falling for her. Tom gets it, though, sneering: "Are you gonna tell him the truth now, or you are gonna wait till after he kills me and blinds himself?"

Falling down the social ladder: Encouraged by Gaby, Carlos switches his massage work from home to their country club. But now that he's staff, the social snobs of Fairview don't want to mingle with the Solises any more. Since when has being uninvited to an event ever stopped Gaby? She sneaks them in to a society party, and of course, they're found out — and kicked out. This plotline only makes viewers dislike Gaby more and love poor blind Carlos, especially when he tells her "We have a home, each other, work that supports us, and two beautiful little girls that love us more than ice cream. I've never been happier in my life."

My buddy and me: Mike decides he wants to get to know the new man in Susan and M.J.'s life, but when he and Jackson start to pal around, Susan is threatened and freaks out, in true Susan form, especially when Mike lets slip a personal tidbit about what Susan likes in bed. In the end, Susan apologizes after wrecking some poor guy's beer, and tells Jackson it's fine if he wants to hang out with Mike. Speaking of Susan's ex-husbands, there's also a brief Karl appearance — and man, was he always this obnoxious?

Best line: Susan, to Jackson when he suggests wearing tie-dye:

"We need a shirt that says 'I am a respectable citizen,' not 'My favorite clothing store also sells bongs!'

Second-best line: Gaby, after Carlos says he likes working at home so he can spend more time with their family:

"I don't need to spend more time with you, and frankly, the kids are on the fence!"

Googlestalking: In the final scene, Mrs. McCluskey shows up at Katherine's house with a bouquet of flowers. She's bribing the neighbor so she can use Katherine's computer to try and learn more about Creepy Dave.
