When Betty Applewhite is shown a photograph of her son's girlfriend's body, the body is partially covered with a jacket, covering the victim's left arm and only exposing a few fingers on that hand. Her son Matthew is later shown committing the murder (in a flashback), and his jacket is laid over the body with the majority of the victim's left arm shown - much more than just the few fingers shown in the original photo.

An Outstanding Episode
12 April 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The first part of Remember takes us back when Bree,Lynette,Susan and Gabrielle moves to Wisteria Lane and how Mary Alice brought them all together.Also included in the flashbacks scenes is the day when Melanie Foster was murdered.Then we get to see Susan moves into a trailer when her house burns down.Also,we witness Lynette and the kids staying at the hotel.Then Bree gets some unexpected news.Finally,we get to see Gabrielle see a news report that her husband,Carlos has died.This is definitely one of the better episodes of the second season.All the flashbacks scenes were great especially with Brenda Strong involved in some of the scenes.The murder of Melanie Foster somewhat made up for the lack of intrigue and twist in this season.Overall,this was definitely an outstanding episode.
