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)
