TV Recap: Desperate Housewives

New neighbors bring new surprises, and Wisteria Lane is no exception to this.

Lee and Bob create a "work of art," or as they call it, a sculpture, and place it on their front lawn for everyone to see. It took just as little time as it did to hammer that last nail as it did for the entire neighborhood to notice it, and hate it.

Lynette's kids and their friends have apparently made rules for the adult in the house, no talking about doctors. That means no hanging out with mommy for a while.

Bree finds out that Danielle was kidnapped from the covenant by her grandma, who convinced her grandchild to live with her, keep her baby, and raise it there. So much for Bree's baby suits.

Carlos and Gabby plan a get-away weekend at a nearby hotel while Victor is gone, but it is interrupted in the lobby by a past lover of Gabby's, John the gardener, as well as his pregnant wife.

Bree shows up at her ex-mother-in-law’s house to try and send Danielle back to the covenant, but she has already made up her mind about her life, and her baby. She is turning 18 next week, and her mother can no longer make her decisions for her. Bree has to find another approach to get her daughter, and baby back.

Catherine runs for president of the Home Owner’s Association in order to force Lee and Bob to get rid of things that don’t conform to society, also known as the fountain sculpture that is disrupting the beauty of Wisteria Lane.

If everything that doesn’t fall under the guidelines has to go, this means Lynette’s tree house, the one place where her children can escape from her cancer, must go, as well. She decides to run against Catherine, as a liberal.

John shows up at Gabby’s hotel room door ready to continue the affair that Gabby wanted months ago, and Carlos hides in the closet for fear of being caught. John talks about the past, revealing some not-so-pleasant little secrets about Carlos and Gabby.

Carlos realizes that “loving someone makes you forget the difference between right and wrong,” and hence decides to forgive John in person for falling in love and having affair with his wife.

When deciding who will be the president of the Home Owner Association, the town votes a tie between Lynette and Catherine, or so they thought. Susan, Lynette’s best friend and neighbor of the fountain that keeps her and her husband awake at obscene hours, is torn. Ultimately, she chooses her sleep over her best friend.

Bree and Orson play devil’s advocate with Danielle to try and scare her out of the decision she’s made to live with her grandma and keep her baby. It works. Danielle moves out.

Carlos tells Gabby they have to end the affair in order to eventually be together. As it could take as long as six whole months, they have their last kiss in front of a window, where the detective that Edie has hired captures their moment.

Catherine, whose husband gives her a piece of his mind, has chosen friendship over power, and decides to let Lynette keep her tree house because she wants to be a “good neighbor.”

As she is about tell Lee and Bob to take their time removing their sculpture, they reveal some secrets they know about Catherine’s past life, which immediately reverses her role as a “sculpture remover.”

What happened to Catherine in Chicago? Will Edie act on the information she now has about her husband and Gabby? Are Lee and Bob going to be the only ones on Wisteria Lane who have power over Catherine? Next week awaits us!
