Desperate Housewives Review: "Farewell Letter"

by at . Comments

A break up for Breith?  A nun with no conscious? And a barefoot wife kicked to the curb?!? Indeed, "Farewell Letter" delivered another crazy day in the life of the Desperate.

Poor Lynette raised two grown sons who can't even make a 2 a.m. omelets for themselves. No wonder Lynette looks so tired. I feel for this woman and her years and years of losing sleep. However tired, though, she is still witty as ever.

Telling her kids that they keep the eggs under the kitchen sink next to the fresh fruit seemed like an appropriate response to a grown man who clearly had not ever opened the refrigerator.

Farewell Letter Scene

Elsewhere, depressed Gaby bounced back after some much needed attention... in a way that can only apply to her. Not sure if I'd recommend a return to the spotlight for anyone else who recently lost a child and is dealing with major daddy issues.

If I had to guess, Gaby is a Leo. Getting attention equals happiness for this gal. Good thing Carlos loves her for it. What a glimmer he had in his eye when he watched her twirl for the cameras.

Now, as for this nun with no conscious, way to represent the Catholic church. At least they did not portray a priest with no conscious.  I think we've seen that one before.

In bigger news, Breith is over! I have to say, it's about time. Don't get me wrong, I liked Brian Austin Green's character on the show, but it was high time for him to move right off of the Lane.  This week, his crying scene put the extra nail in his coffin for me. Clearly, Keith does a better as a hot handyman than sensitive daddy-o. Anyway, I'd rather see Bree get back to tending to her garden.

Poor Susan just can't get a break, and her karma is not getting any better with all of the manipulation she is playing in order to get what she wants.  It looks like it may be catching up with her, though. She will make it to the end of the season, won't she?

Perhaps if her long lost husband actually came home to help this poor lass out, she may stand a chance.  But he's too busy caring for the messed up, attempted murderer that he likes to call "son." Tough break there.

Speaking of Susan: does anyone else think it is a bit ironic that she drives a nice new Volvo even though they had to give up their home and move to a small apartment?  It seems the priorities may be off a bit with these two.  As Renee put it: "I like bad kidney Susan, way better than two kidney Susan." Not sure if I agree.

Finally, Paul Young is single again after kicking barefoot Beth to the curb.  She's right up there with Keith, in my opinion: time to move on, move out.  But where will she go?

Things are just heating up on the Lane.  It looks like one of the lovely ladies may not be gracing us with their presence much longer.  Who do you think it will be?
