Meanwhile, while Paul is renting Susan’s home, she, Mike and MJ are living in an apartment on limited funds..... But Susan sees a glimmer of hope in getting her life back on the Lane when she’s offered an unorthodox job by her apartment manager, Maxine (Lainie Kazan); Lynette’s rich and successful college friend, Renee (Vanessa Williams), pays an unexpected visit to the Scavo household; Gabrielle and Carlos find themselves keeping secrets from one another; and Bree, newly single and needing a fresh start after selling her business, finds herself tempted by Keith (Brian Austin Green) -- the handsome, young handyman she's hired to update her house -- on the season premiere of “Desperate Housewives.”

This looks like it could be a good season!

I really thought it was going to MJ who was switched at birth. It will be interesting to see how this plays out with it being Juanita. Can't wait to see what Paul's up to!

MJ was my last thought. I was leanning towards one of Bree's kids as odds on favorite. This would help in leaving Andrew or Dannelle out of many (if not all) future episodes. My next pic would have been a Solis child as Tom and Lynnette have had enough on their plate and with Vanessa Williams playing role in their lives that would be too much for 1 season. Never did I consider MJ as option as I think they want to keep the couples (Susan and MIke) troubles not be relatinship related persay. The trick is how do they handle this as we cna expect both Carlos and Gabbys secrets will l;ikey come out. I started a topic on this but will post it here as well. I though tI found a writing flaw in last night episode. I may have heard it wrong but didnt Carlos tell his oldest (child in question) that her GrandMother (his Mother) love dher very much!? Carlos Mom died before this child was even concieved much less be born!

BRILLIANT.

Ahh I loved it!

Vanessa Williams :wub: :wub: AMAZING!!

@spoil_me Carlos said "You [daughter] would have liked her a lot" or words to that effect.

I'll be writing a more in-depth review for the blog later :thumbsup:

I really liked the season 1 flavor that Paul and Felicia brought to this episode. Vanessa Williams was a little "over the top" though.

Yeah, the S1 feel was definitely there!!

Especially seeing Rex and Martha (not to mention red-headed young twins) at the beginning, even though they said nothing.

Oh, and the names of the housewives on the webcams? Martha and Deirdre. Coincidence I think not! Loved that touch :D

Possibly, but I was actually reacting not just to Renee's snobbery (see also: Bree does it so much better), but just Vanessa Williams' acting in general. Maybe she's just outclassed by Felicity Huffman, and that's why Vanessa Williams seemed... like a sort of sub-par actress. Or maybe it's not even that, specifically, or just she doesn't seem to "fit" in just yet with the other actresses. Sort of like how an actor who is great on say, The Sopranos, wouldn't seem to be as good on another show, like say, Curb Your Enthusiasm. Vanessa Williams just didn't seem to be on the same show as everyone else.

I'm probably (definitely) biased since I loved Williams on Ugly Betty, but I thought she did a great job!
