She Needs Me
I was taken by surprise when at of tonight’s episode, the announcement over the preview declared that there were only 6 new episodes remaining before the big series finale. Sure, I’m no stranger to knowing how the television hiatus schedule works but 6 episodes to tie up the rest of the series? I suppose it’s time to give Desperate Housewives a deserving kudos because right now, there’s so much going on that I have no idea how mysteries and storylines are going to be wrapped up in such a short amount of time.
Oh, wait… I can think of one situation I didn’t care too much for – Susan’s relentless willingness to want to play such a vital role in her daughter’s child’s life. Sure, I understood that Susan just wants to be a grandmother and hopes that Julie will come around and want to be a part of her daughter’s life, but you’d think that Susan would try a little harder to understand what Julie wants.
And what do you know? He placed a chilling phone call to Bree at the end of the episode, threatening to suicide, just before he sent proof of the ladies’ murder cover-up to the police! (How are they going to avoid jail now?)
Meanwhile, Susan (Teri Hatcher) and Lynette (Felicity Huffman) continued to feud over Julie (Andrea Bowen) and Porter’s (Charlie Carver) unborn baby — this time over what her name will be. Lynette wanted “Lynette,” Susan wanted “Sophie,” and somehow their disagreement led to a knock-down, drag-out battle on Susan’s front lawn. I forgot how quickly things escalate on Wisteria Lane.

Desperate Housewives S08E15: She Needs Me
Gaby got Karen and Roy back together in a heart-rendering scene. He’s a good character, a good addition to the show. As for Lynette and Susan, they’re both making peace with becoming grandmothers — of the same child. The episode was mostly concerned about their role with Julie’s baby. The nagging question continues to be: What about Julie?
While Mike brings Julie back to school, Susan finds Porter, who tells her how he got a job but that Lynette doesn’t think it’s good enough because it doesn’t provide childcare. Susan, of course, seizes on this opportunity to enthusiastically tell Porter that she’s happy provide daycare for her new granddaughter. Predictably, as soon as Lynette sees the two of them moving furniture together, she becomes suspicious and then upset, especially when Porter asks for the bassinet that the children all slept in.
With soon-to-be grandmas Susan and Lynette bickering away, I laughed every time Porter was so convincingly clueless. I also loved the paralleled scenes with Tom talking to Susan and then Mike talking to Lynette, both trying to remind them of what was really important amongst all of the baby drama.
Meanwhile, I wholeheartedly agreed when Roy asked Gaby if she ever thought of anyone but herself. Then again, I was so glad that Gaby went against Mrs. McCluskey’s wishes and told Roy about her cancer. Both Mrs. McCluskey and Roy are so darn sweet.
Things also escalated quickly for Gaby (Eva Longoria), who was forced to promise (Kathryn Joosten) she wouldn’t tell Roy about her cancer coming back. But after the saddest chat ever, Gaby decided she couldn’t keep the truth to herself — so the elderly lovebirds have successfully been reunited. Here’s hoping she’s not the person who dies this season!
Bree agrees to leave for Maine with Orson, but not before trying to engage in a side trip to his apartment. Orson attempts to heed her off, but Bree pushes and he eventually gives in, though he manages to stall her enough to get rid of the evidence. His stealthiness leaves something to be desired, however, and upon seeing an unopened letter and a stalker type picture in the garbage, Bree realizes exactly what Orson has been doing. Orson admits everything, but says that he only did it because he wants to be with Bree and he knew that he didn’t stand a chance if he couldn’t have her all to himself. He passes his actions off as consequences of intense love, but Bree doesn’t believe him. I have to hand it to Desperate Housewives – usually mysteries like this are dragged out over a number of episodes and become predictable. This year, we’re rolling through the reveals and twists, and I wouldn’t be surprised if this isn’t the last we’ve seen of Orson Hodge.
