    Charades was funny; even with all those bad clues he still got the answer pretty quick, really.

    So, does the big gouge in the bedroom floor give anyone a new theory?

    Considering she said (out loud) that it was a western movie, it was pretty simple actually. I can't imagine ANYONE not guessing "Hang 'em High" as their first pick, given that category and someone miming being hanged. I know that's what I guessed and I'm not a big westerns fan. Lynette did a good job at the miming, though, that's for sure :p

    I don't know if I'd say I like this show again: many of the plots are so lame. Why is Bree still around? So, she came back for the wedding; fine. Why doesn't she go stay with her daughter until the baby comes? The whole Carlos/Edie/Gaby thing is boring me to tears (although I thought it was a cute reverse that he was talking to a CPA--then Victor discusses killing anyone Gaby cheated on him with). Susan and Mike--enough said (although I do find the push-up bra Teri is wearing amusing).

    The only interesting plots are Lynette's and the new neighbor. I'm especially happy they're doing a good job with the mystery this year, after such a lame one last year.

    I'm assuming for now that it's a remnant of the as-yet-undisclosed big secret (her murder of her ex?). She doesn't strike me as the type for hatchets, so I'm guessing a bullet did it. A big bullet. Of course, it could have been a scar left from an attack on her and she killed Mr. Ex in self defense. On this show most anything is possible.

    I like how they set us up to believe that she did it because he molested their daughter - then she almost flat out tells everyone that he did in fact do that, then reveals (to Nathan Fillion and us) that it was just a ploy to discourage people from asking questions. The plot thickens!

    Good episode.

    I'm not finding the show all that interesting this year. Bree's fake pregnancy just reeks of bad sitcom material played for drama. I'd be happy to see Edie offed for real. Carlos/Gabby doesn't really interest me. I'm watching out of habit more than anything now.

    Here's my prediction for an upcoming scene:

    Julie: I heard about your dad molesting you.
    Dylan: What? That's not true. I'm still a virgin.
    Julie: Really? I don't believe you. Let me see.
    Dylan: OK.

    You can use your imagination from there.

    (Wait, is that wrong? Should I not have said that?)

    Really disappointed Carlos' master plan doesn't involve the merciless slaughter of Edie. :(

    Maybe being in the tax field I'm biased...but I called that it was a CPA he was talking to from the first time we saw the guy...a PI/murder-for-hire/hit man/etc was too obvious.

    Just because he's a CPA doesn't mean he's not a hit man! I'm still holding out hope.

    (I never believed it was a hit man either. Thought it was either a finance guy of some type or someone Carlos is paying to romance Edie away from him.)

    Termites. Can you imagine moving back into your old house, paying the new jacked up rates for the real estate, only to discover that you have termites?? She was weeping because she should have done a thorough inspection before closing the deal with the realtor! :cool: :D
