May 13, 2007: What Would We Do Without You? Season 3, Episode 22

Admit it - you got a little teary-eyed like I did at the end when Lynette was told the bad news that she might have lymphoma. And what did it for me was Tom slowly grabbing Lynette's hand and holding it, after she had tried the same thing with him (before the news), and he had rejected her hand. That scene between Felicity Huffman and Doug Savant with Lynette and Tom fighting in bed, the one that led them to get Lynette to the hospital, was a prime example of two actors at their very best. Lynette finally admitting to Tom that she did indeed have feelings for Rick (but "nothing happened") was such a powerful scene by itself - then the cancer scare. I was a mess. You could tell how desperate Tom was getting earlier, sneaking in a marriage counselor ( William Ragsdale) to talk with Lynette in a very "ambush therapy" kind of way. Lynette was not about to let Herman's Head get into her head. Speaking of messes, thankfully Susan and Mike cleaned up the possible mess of dueling weddings by moving their ceremony to the fall. I enjoyed the back and forth competitiveness between Susan and Gabrielle. You knew that the grooms weren't going to agree to a double wedding, especially Victor. My roommate and I had to rewind that wine and chocolate scene with Susan and Gaby because we laughed so hard. Gaby suggesting to Susan that they "get married - together" and Susan first taking Gaby literally was silly, but Gaby's line was hilarious: "Just so you know, if I was a lesbian, I'd totally do you!" Susan: "That's... good to know." The one lame part was Susan asking Mike, "Will you marry me?" after he was finally about to propose. What a way to ruin a romantic moment. It reminded me of Calista Flockhart doing the same thing to Rob Lowe a few weeks ago on Brothers & Sisters. With Bree finally returning next week, I hope this doesn't mean we will say goodbye to Edie having a worthwhile story line. With Marcia Cross away, Nicollette Sheridan has benefited the most. I was glad Carlos was honest with Edie by telling her he wasn't in love with her, and it was good for Edie to see that Carlos seemed disappointed that her pregnancy test was negative. Her latest scam is a doozie: Convincing Carlos to move in with her and to have a baby together, but secretly continuing to take her birth control pills. Oh, Edie. So seedy. And I thought she was already diabolical when visiting Sunny Pastures and getting Mrs. Sims ( Ellen Geer) to evict Carlos by lying and saying he "does smack." Hopefully he doesn't smack Edie when he finds out she's still on the pill. See you next Sunday for the season finale. With Gaby having jitters, will she go through with the wedding? I do... look forward to next week. Find video from Desperate Housewives in our Online Video Guide. show less

Premise: Following her suicide, Mary Alice Young keeps tabs on friends and family she left behind on bucolic suburban Wisteria Lane. But this being a prime-time soap (if a tongue-in-cheek one), they all harbor a sordid secret or two. Created by writer-producer Marc Cherry (a 'Golden Girls' alum), 'Housewives' was an instant hit and a frequent contender on Emmy night .
