As Nicollette Sheridan said to the women on The View last week: "Finally! A new episode!" I would've preferred more Nicollette tonight, though, besides just the final scene. But what a final scene Alma is moving to Wisteria Lane, thanks to the real-estate savvy of Edie. The best episodes of DH are the ones like tonight that introduce new mysteries while further answering old ones. What was Alma giving herself a shot of in her thigh? For a while there, I thought she was killing herself, but I was wrong. I liked the earlier flashback scene where we found out why Alma and Orson got married she tricked him into getting her pregnant, and he was never in love with her. Loved when she showed up to Bree's door, and Bree fainted. Valerie Mahaffey is a stellar addition to an already solid cast, so I hope Alma lasts. Her best line was to Orson while sitting next to Bree on the couch: "What is it with you and redheads?" Since Alma and Bree are so similar, it was natural for them t...
It's always a treat when we get answers to questions that have been baffling our minds. But in the true Desperate Housewives tradition, questions still remain unanswered, so our head-scratching never truly comes to an end. Alma is alive and has been in hiding and in cahoots with Gloria (Dixie Carter) all this time. But where has she been? Has she been hiding because Orson was the one who killed Monique or did Mike? Since Mike still has amnesia, he doesn't even know (although Monique's blood was on Mike's wrench uh-oh). When I saw Valerie Mahaffey listed with tonight's guest stars in the opening credits, I figured it was because she'd be seen in only flashbacks. When Gloria called that mystery person on her cell phone and said "meet me on the corner in an hour," my smart roommate Jason yelled: "I bet it's Alma!" I liked Susan sneaking into Orson's office and finding the evidence that he was in a mental hospital for psychological depression when he was younger. Plus, Susan hear...
Do not drink the White House Kool-Aid: Powers Boothe has been cast as Noah Daniels, vice president to commander in chief Wayne Palmer, on Fox's 24, which debuts Season 6 on Jan. 14.... Per the Hollywood Reporter and as spilled earlier this week by the assorted Ausiello columns, Kip Pardue is joining ER as a male nurse/new love interest for Linda Cardellini's Sam, while Mark Deklin (who has had a recurring gig on Justice) is joining Desperate Housewives as Bill Pearce, a handsome widower who gets cozy with soon-to-be children's-beauty-pageant consultant Gaby. (Wait 'til he sees what her talent is....)
As I reported in this week's Ask Ausiello, CSI has tapped Tony winner Liev Schreiber to fill the temporary void left by William Petersen. Schreiber will play a seasoned CSI who joins the veteran team at the Las Vegas Crime Lab. He'll debut in Episode 12, slated to air in January.In other casting prattle, Desperate Housewives has found a new plaything for Eva Longoria. Sources confirm that Mark Deklin, most recently seen as Dr. Shaw on Fox's Justice, is joining the cast for at least three episodes as a love interest for Gabrielle. He first shows up on Nov. 26.
