Incogruously Gabrielle is seen reading Maxim magazine in bed, a publication aimed at teenage boys. This is an in-joke as actress Eva Longoria has repeatedly appeared in it and was declared their 2014 Woman of the Year. See more »


When Edie and Susan are in the bar, watch Edie's beer glass. Seen from over her shoulder, it's almost full. She takes a small sip and when the camera cuts to a full-on shot, it's half-empty. Cut back to over Edie's shoulder and the glass is in her hand, almost full again. Cut back to the full-on shot, and the glass is half-empty and sitting on the table, even though Edie never set it down. See more »

In the penultimate episode of the second season of Desperate Housewives,we get to see several events that happen in preparation for the two-episode season finale. In it,we get to see Bree checks herself into the Fairview psychiatric hospital.Also,Lynette follows Tom to Atlantic City with the suspicion that he cheating on her.Meanwhile,Susan must start over. Finally,we get to see Gaby and Carlos get servant Xiao-Mei pregnant.This is one good episode. It was so funny when Edie confessed Susan that she burned her house.Also,Lynette's storyline has become interesting especially when dealing with her cheating husband.This episode definitely sets up the viewer for the great conclusion of the second season.
