Desperate Housewives season 7 episode 5 called “Let Me Entertain You” which was directed by Lonny Price and was written by Sara Parriott & Josann McGibbon aired last night on ABC.
It was an episode where everyone had secrets to share and apologies to make. Let us dive into the installment.
It was an interesting storyline where we finally understood why Tom is the way he is- with a mom with a 1950’s mindset no wonder he is so lazy and expect his wife to be his slave.
It was nice of Lynette to make peace with her mother in law even though she not happy with her sons following in their dad’s example of treating their grandmother like the help. But with grandma not remembering who Penny is – we think Lynette will not be able to go back to work as planed and will have to stay home to watch the baby and the ailing old lady.
The Renee/Gabrielle smackdown:
The ladies did some bonding with one sharing how she slept with her husband’s lawyer for 8 million dollars and the other revealing her fake nose before things turned ugly. It was very fitting how everyone mocked Gabby after her boasting of her natural for beauty so long. The fight was wild and funny but it was cute how they eventually made up at the end with one handing out chocolate while the other presented flowers and realizing how much they have in common. Williams has been a brilliant addition to the show and this is a key reason why – she is a sweetheart one day and crazy biatch the other .
The Bree/Keith plot was pretty entertaining as well .
The storyline dealt with Bree being overwhelmed and snapping at her lover telling him that she can go on with his wild sex life because she is too old.
He eventually confessed that he felt that she was out of his league with her speaking French , being a perfectionist and thought that sex would convince her to stay with him. These two have a great dynamic that deserves to continue.
Here is the recap of the episode:
Susan’s days as a sexy internet sensation may be coming to an end after she angers an important client and incurs the wrath of her boss, Maxine; Renee and Gabrielle are headed for a smackdown after each of them reveals an intimate secret about the other to the wrong people; Bree finds herself exhausted by younger lover Keith’s sexual stamina; Lynette is angry with Tom after he asks his mother to become the baby’s nanny without talking it over with her first; and housewife Emma Graham (singer-songwriter Dana Glover) puts on a cabaret show — with the aid of saxophonist Dave Koz — with surprising results.
The episode ended with Paul who discovered the poster Susan doing online striptease last week popping up for a private video show and telling her it is either she sells her house or he will reveal her secret to everyone in Wisteria Lane including Mike.
Paul has some nasty plans up his sleeves and we are eager to find out what they are.
