TV Recap: Desperate Housewives

Deception is the name of the game on Wisteria Lane. They're all experts, and they all play the game like champions.

Bree's new "son," Benjamin, is turning eight days old soon. We all know what this means; something painful yet traditional is on its way.

Lynette's mother surprises her family and friends one morning with a visitor. His name was Stan, and soon after he left, Stella forgot his name.

Orson and Bree invite Susan and Mike over for a dinner, because according to Susan and to Mike's dismay, "that's what you do in the suburbs."

Orson has been scarred from circumcision, as his father was very against it so his mother had to wait until he went on a business trip. That was when Orson was five years old.

At this dinner, Bree happens to stumble upon one of Mike’s “aspirins” he’s been taking to ease the pain in his shoulder. She finds out it’s not exactly aspirin he’s taking.

After bringing Stan home, Stella has officially extended her welcome in Lynette’s home. Lynette’s tells her she has to find somewhere else to stay.

Dylan, Catherine’s daughter, has a school project assignment. Ironically, she has decided assigned to research her father. Catherine goes to all lengths to try and stop her, but it doesn’t work this time. Dylan is “officially no longer scared” of her mother.

Bree informs Susan about Mike’s drug problem, and lets her know that coming from an experienced addict, they have lying down pat. Therefore, Susan takes actions to verify Mike’s words that he’s not using drugs. Unfortunately, she finds out that his words were definitely not verifiable.

Lynette tricks her sister into taking her mother back, but it backfires. Lucy, her other sister, takes charge and stops Lynette from walking all over their sister. The three fight to endless degrees, literally driving their mother away.

Carlos returns home to pick up a painting he had left at Edie’s, and she gives him a little more than the painting (with a hole in it), she gives him a little information, as well. That she told Victor about Carlos and Gabby's affair, and the pictures to back it up.

Carlos immediately calls Gabby, who is on a boat in the middle of the ocean with Victor and only Victor. She has been instructed to keep this little trip private. Gabby puts two and two together and realizes Victor’s real intentions behind this “romantic” trip he wanted to take with her. Alone. In the middle of the ocean. In secret.

Gabby tries to make up excuses of why she wants to go home, and Victor admits he knows everything about her and Carlos’s affair. As he is taking a sweater out of his bag, in defense, Gabby hits him over the head and knocks him off the boat, and drives away.

Catherine makes up one of her special concoctions and scares her daughter out of researching her father. Deception’s the name of the game, people.

Speaking of deception, Bree shows up at a bris with some plans for her own baby. She coerces the Rabbi into performing a bris on Benjamin, behind Orson’s back.

Carlos comes to Gabby’s rescue and knocks (pun intended) some sense into her and they drive the boat back out into the ocean to retrieve the husband that’s floating in their. Victor attacks Carlos, and Gabby knocks him overboard again. Now that she’s no longer modeling, she has picked up another talent.

Susan confronts Mike about his pills and he confesses that he only took them under pressure of making money so his son didn’t have the life he had: a plumber. He throws away all the pills. Only later, when Susan is sleeping, does deception creeps in yet again.

What an episode! Will Gabby and Carlos get caught? Is Dylan going to get curious again about her father? What is Mike’s real problem? Living with Susan? Keep watching!
