Several days must have passed between the teaser of this episode and the rest of it, since Gabrielle has had time to make up (very professional-looking) cards and posters, gotten several dozen volunteers and reserved dresses for many of them, yet Paul has only just gotten around to disposing of Mrs. Huber's body and trying to wash the blood out of his shirt. Even if we assume the teaser takes place right after the end of the last episode (when Paul murdered her), that's still several days of keeping a rotting corpse and enough evidence to put him away for life around his house.

[first lines]
Mary Alice Young: Gabrielle was waiting for her next great idea. Her first great idea came when she was 15 after her stepfather paid her a late-night visit.

Suspicious Minds ( Season 1, Episode 9 )
11 February 2010 | by ( – See all my reviews

This episodes provides tonnes of the sweet stuff that made your heart missed a beat, and possibly broke a sweat on your forehead.

John's mother found out about her son's affair with a married woman, but she thought it was Susan!

Gabrielle was about to come clean about her relationship, but before she could do that, her husband was taken away, in handcuffs, no less!

Susan was humiliated in a charity show ! (the best part in this episode, in my opinion)

And Lynette was headhunting for a nanny to look after her kids.

A very good episode !
