Goofs

Edie Britt and Susan Meyer are sitting in the bar trying to scope out the "victim." Edie pours herself a glass of beer and it's filled to the top and she takes a tiny sip. In the next shot, the glass is more than halfway empty. And in the shot after that, the glass is filled back up near the top. See more »

Susan: Oh my God!
Bree: Yeah, apparently he was seeing someone.
Susan: Really? Did he say who it is?
Edie: I know who she is. She's a man-eating, scum-sucking ho bag!
Bree: [Pause] No, he did not say.

9 April 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

In this episode,we get to see the father of Gabrielle and Carlos' adopted baby show up in their home to take her daughter back. They try to settle the issue with the help of cops and lawyers.Meanwhile,Lynette helps Ed to have a better sex life.Later in the show,Karl decides end his relationship with Edie.Apparently,Karl and Susan go back into each others' arms without Edie knowing it.This prompted Edie to go to the bar to drink.Then,she gets into a fight with a waitress after she trips her.Finally,we get to see Bree help Peter overcome his addiction.

This is definitely one of the better episodes of the second season.It has a great mix of drama and comedy.We get to see Susan develop into a better person as she started to become more honest and become more open about relationships instead of hiding them.Also,we get to see a heartbreaking scenes from Gabrielle especially when her baby was taken away from her.Great acting was done by Eva Longaria.Also,we get to see Lynette's storyline become dark and interesting especially with the "assistance" she provides Ed.Also,we get to see Bree's situation with her situation somewhat become more complex especially with her relationship to her children.As for humor,the fight that Edie got into the bar will definitely elicit a lot of laughter to the viewer. Great episode!!!
