DeAnn Welker writes:When your curiosity gets the best of you, sometimes you have to pay a high price for it. That's the message we (sort of) got to by the end of this week's Very Special Episode about Gaby and Carlos and their NOTdaughter Juanita.
See, they decided early in the episode to sign papers at the hospital giving up their rights to sue in exchange for the hospital giving up its search for the other parents (that's a really smart deal for the hospital to have in writing, isn't it?). Gaby signed, because she wanted to spare the other mother the pain she's going through. However, after a shopping trip led her to see a handful of potential biological daughters, she asked Bob to get his private investigator friend to find the real parents. By the end of the episode, he'd found them and given them a call -- then he told Carlos about the search, and Carlos told Gaby he'd leave her if this goes bad. And, I think we all know there's no good way for this to go.
Bree's storyline, on the other hand, only has good ways to go. I thought I'd miss Orson, but it turns out that a free Bree is much more fun to watch. And, boy, was she ever free this week -- especially her cleavage. After she tried to ask her contractor, Brian Austin Greene (whose name is Keith, by the way; did we know that?) on a date only to find out he has a hot, young girlfriend, Bree took Vanessa Williams's evil Renee up on her offer to go out on a manhunt. After Renee got Bree out of her boring clothes (much to Bree's protests: But it's a cocktail cardigan! See the shiny buttons!), they headed out and bumped into none other than Keith. Renee hit on him and then took him home. But Bree's a competitor, so she faked hooliganism on her front yard sprinkler system and Keith came running. Renee called her desperate (uh, of course; that's in the name of the show!), and the game is, presumably, on.
Meanwhile: Tom got totally high on oregano after Lynette switched that with his medical marijuana to teach him a very important lesson. That is so Lynette. Susan got into a competition of her own with another of Maxine's tenants/webcamistas. And the ladies invited Paul's wife, Beth, to their poker game, where she found out that, even though Felicia framed Paul for her own murder, everyone (rightly) believes he's still a literal lady-killer -- of Felicia's sister, Martha. But Beth headed home to tell Paul that she loved him before she knew he wasn't a murderer, so he should know she's on his side. Wow, I don't know who's creepier: Paul or Beth.
