Tom and Lynette have a small limousine problem when he attempts to give her a night to remember for their ninth wedding anniversary. Gabrielle gets a new boyfriend: Victor Lang, who is 15 years older than her... and wealthy. He is running for mayor of Fairview. Meanwhile, Edie's 9-year-old son, Travers, comes to Wisteria Lane, and Carlos ends up babysitting for him after the irresponsible Edie goes off on another night on the town. While Bree leaves town for a few days, Danielle reveals to Orson and Andrew that she's pregnant from her tryst with Austin who is trying to win Julie back. Orson forces Austin to leave town for good while agreeing to look after Daneielle. Mike also learns that Ian has proposed to Susan and faces off against him in a one-on-one card game for Susan's affections. In an unusual twist, Steven Culp narrates this episode as Rex Van De Kamp from beyond the grave. Written by dinaah

19 March 2007 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

i was absolutely blown away by this episode definitely one of the best episodes i have seen it just shows so much about family connections it had me crying buckets especially the connection with Julie and Austin the end part with them made me cry the most and i love the fact that they invited Steven culp (rex Bree's dead ex-husband ) back to narrate it for a change . i loved how he could talk about all the men of wisteria lane so we got to know the MEN a little bit better there was also humour as always so its good thats what i think is fantastic about desperate housewives there is always sad bits but in every episode humour that is very important because in this episode there humour was one of the mens fault but he was just trying to be romantic and show his wife he respects her . i definitely hope that we have future episodes like this...
