Last week I mentioned how excited I was that George was going to be serenading Bree with a karaoke rendition of David Soul's "Don't Give Up on Us," since I've performed the same song in karaoke form. How hilarious to see Bree get out a rifle and shoot in George's direction (reminding me of my friends' reactions to karaoke). I was very glad when Bree finally found out that George caused Rex's death, and it made perfect sense for her to pretend to have called 911, therefore causing George to die (assuming he dies). Lynette, meanwhile, just can't seem to win: She got Nina fired, but now it looks like replacing her as VP of accounts may turn out to be a nightmare. Paul Dooley was great as Susan's real father, and I have loved Joyce Van Patten since St. Elmo's Fire ("I knew it the minute he walked into the door — drugs!!") so I hope we see more of her next week. Nice moment when Susan whispered to her father "I'm not giving up" after telling his wife "I'm your husband's guardian angel." Then there's Gabrielle and the early-paroled Carlos. If you thought the nun looked familiar, that was Melinda Page Hamilton, who was just on Nip/Tuck a few weeks ago as the Kimber wannabe. The last person we ever thought would compete with Gabi for Carlos was a nun — and what a tough nun Sister Mary is! I laughed hysterically when she said, "I grew up on the South Side of Chicago. If you want to threaten me, you're going to have to do a lot better than that." Whenever I show my "tough" side, I completely credit it to my being from where? The South Side of Chicago.
