Things look pretty ‘Desperate’ for Edie

To be continued...: The long-rumored Edie death plot kicked off this week. Dave, Katherine and Mike went on the camping trip that was Dave's excuse to seek revenge on the man who killed his family.

To be continued...: The long-rumored Edie death plot kicked off this week. Dave, Katherine and Mike went on the camping trip that was Dave's excuse to seek revenge on the man who killed his family. Just as Dave had Katherine in his rifle's sights, Edie texted him, and his shot missed. Edie was calling her man home, as she'd finally read the faxed article that told her Mike was acquitted for the car accident deaths of Dave's first wife and young daughter.

The camping crew headed home, where Edie was waiting for Dave, confronting him with his evil plan. She tried to call Mike to warn him, but Dave grabbed her and strangled her, letting up just in time. Edie ended up fleeing the house and trying to drive while using her cell phone,

Meanwhile, kleptomaniac Orson was running out of a home he'd tried to steal from, and found himself in Edie's path. She swerved to miss him, hit a power line, and stepped in water as the live line sparkled and cracked on her car. ZAP! It doesn't look good for the bombshell blonde, whose alleged exit has been reported numerous times this season. But the plot is "to be continued," and a new episode isn't coming till mid-April, so fans have plenty of time to mull the "is she dead, or isn't she?" question.

To sell or not to sell: Before Orson's late-night thievery run, Bree agreed to sell her company to save her marriage. But when the buyer arrived, Orson's jerky talk put Bree on a slow simmer. He bragged that his wife's sole ambition now was to be "Mrs. Orson Hodge," that he was the only person she'd be cooking for, and that he'd be demolishing her kitchen for a game room. He'd claimed that Bree had emasculated him, but he was sure doing his level best to destroy her. Finally, Bree had enough, and said she wasn't selling the company, even if Orson continued to steal because of it. (Does this plot make a lot of sense? Orson and Bree are both being horrible to each other, each expecting the other to give up everything with no compromise. And since when does stealing = redeeming one's masculinity?)

He's a family man: Carlos and Lynette found themselves pushed by Lucy to spend all their time at the office at the expense of their families. When Gaby brought her daughters to the office so she could force the issue with Carlos, Lynette found the perfect way to expose Lucy's cruelty. She let the girls play with Lucy's beloved crystal animal collection, which led to Lucy screaming at the cleaning lady, assuming the girls belonged to her. Carlos witnessed the rant, and told Lucy he no longer wanted her working with the company.

Art of war: Evan, the son of Karl and his new wife, enrolled at the school where Susan teaches art. Every picture he drew depicted a bloody murder scene, and Karl finally explains to Susan that the boy is angry at his mother, who left them. A stunned Susan confessed that she'd dreamed of Karl feeling as bad as she did when he left her, but now that he really is in her shoes, she's nothing but sorry.

Quote of the week: When Gaby complains to Tom that she and Carlos haven't slept together in two weeks, he blurts out, "Two weeks is a drought for you?" A little TMI there on Tom and Lynette's sex life.

Anachronism of the week: Edie doesn't find out that Dave's after Mike until close to the end of the episode because ... she's out of fax paper for her fax machine. Don't most fax machines take regular paper now? And really, a fax machine? But apparently it made for more drama than watching her wait for a .PDF of the article to open in her e-mail account.
