Storyline

Bree reaps the success of her new book by treating herself to a new car, which irks Lynette since she had to sell Tom's Mustang for some extra cash. Meanwhile, Susan is determined to send M.J. to the best school, even though she and Mike can't afford the high tuition. Gabrielle joins Edie's no nonsense boot camp to get herself back into shape. Also, Lee is conflicted over whether or not to tell Lynette and Tom some disturbing facts about Dave whom he begins to suspect of setting the nightclub fire and lying about Porter setting it.

best episode of the season
9 February 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Although DH is consistently the best written show on TV, this episode was exceptional. This episode deserves an Emmy. It is hard to believe that DH has never won an Emmy for writing. I don't understand why it is in the comedy category, although it is hilarious and I laughed out loud at this episode many times. It does not feel like a comedy to me. The only nomination for writing was the pilot, which was competing against "Everybody Loves Raymond" and "Arrested Development". I like these shows, but are they comparable to DH? Hey Emmy people- find or create an appropriate writing category for the best written show on TV and then give them an Emmy.
