Tonight's Episode(s): 08-22: "Give Me The Blame" & 08-23: "Finishing the Hat"
Synopsis of 08-22: Trip (guest star Scott Bakula) begs Bree to tell him what really happened the night of Alejandro's murder as her trial begins to go south and it looks like she's about to be convicted. Gabrielle tries to come up with a solution that will take the burden off of Bree, and Susantries to keep the sale of her house private until she's had a chance to break the news to the ladies.
Synopsis of 08-23: Katherine Mayfair (Dana Delany) returns to Wisteria Lane and offers Lynette an intriguing job opportunity - which could end her chances of reconciling with Tom. The women all agree to take care of Mrs. McCluskey when they discover that she wants to die with dignity at home, and Susan finds herself at wits end when Julie goes into labor at the most inopportune time. Meanwhile, Renee is shocked to discover that, as their wedding nears, Ben has been arrested and thrown in jail.
#2: des_housewives will be on moderated status (meaning all posted entries to the community have to be approved) until Monday evening EST (May 14). If you post your thoughts about tonight's episode as a separate post on Sunday, your post will be held over until Monday, then allowed through.
#3: If, for any reason, you need to get a hold of the mod (that's me!), be sure to comment on this post with a subject line that isn't generic or non-existent (e.g. "mod, please read"). I don't read the entries here until after I've seen the episode, which is usually several days after everyone else has watched it so if you're wanting to make a comment about incorrect formatting or something wrong with the post, I won't know about it until later otherwise. Thanks. :)
#4: Everyone in this community has been so fantastic and I've loved being a moderator over the past eight years. bana76, eevee_gurl, sideshowkat, and myself (lea724) have all, at some point, moderated this community since the show began and I want to thank each of them, and all of you, for coming here and being a part of the Desperate Housewives fandom.
