Storyline

After their son Andrew accidentally ran over Carlos' mother Juanita Solis, Bree and Rex help Andrew cover the incident up by disposing of the car and the evidence, yet guilt-addicted Bree rebukes Andrew for showing no remorse. Susan grows suspicious of Mike Delfino's real reason for moving to the street when she discovers a load of cash and a gun hidden in his kitchen drawer, but ends up stuck in his bathroom floor. Lynette reaches the breaking point in her addiction to the twins' A.D.D. medication as she tries other measures like acupuncture to release her stress; only to deal with the disturbance of her four kids during a session. Lynette realizes its time for drastic measures after she has a disturbing dream with Mary Alice. The mysterious Mr. Shaw gets down to business as he develops a relationship with Edie whom he suspects was Mary Alice's blackmailer, but learns that the real culprit is Mrs. Huber. Mr. Shaw also has a connection to Mary Alice Young as he talks to Paul Young ... Written by Anonymous

Goofs

When Susan falls through the floorboards of Mike's house she uses the nearby towel to try and get the dog Bongo to help her. If you watch at the different angles the position of the dog keeps changing. When it shows Susan from behind the dog is almost right next to her face and stepping on the towel. In the shots from in front of Susan the dog is nowhere near the towel or even in the shot. This mistake looks more deliberate as the front on shots of Susan, the dog would likely have blocked her face from the camera. See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
Mary Alice Young: [Bree opens the Bible] There is a widely read book that tells us everyone is a sinner. Of course, not everyone who reads this book over the bad things they do, but Bree Van De Kamp did. In fact, Bree had spent most of her life feeling guilty.

Farewell My Beloved Martha Huber!
26 September 2006 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

What an amazing episode, here we learn that Paul Young it's a real assassin, his family secret was discover by Martha (Christine Estabrook) which was blackmailing Mary Alice Young, he finally found out that Martha was the guilty about Mary Alice's suicide, and obviously he took revenge, at the end of the episode Paul was chatting with Martha, and all of the sudden, he asked why she was blackmailing his wife, Martha did not deny it, Paul went upset, as he grabbed a blender glass to hit her in the head, followed by a little struggle and finally was killed. To get rid of the body, Paul buried her in a park, which was later discovered by a dog.

I don't get, after he killed her, the housewives did not notice it at all, until Martha's sister, Felicia Tilman arrived to the neighborhood and solved the cold case.

At the end of the season, the housewives learned that Paul killed her. I was expecting the housewives to cry, but they didn't care a radish about Martha.

Later some archive footage from Martha was used, telling more secrets about the Youngs.

LONG LIVE MARTHA HUBER (which I love since TV-series Nikki)
