Series 8 - 6. Witch's Lament

Review by:
Emma Perry

Director Tony Plana is so pleased with his homage to The Killing’s opening sequence, he uses it twice. At the beginning we’re not sure why Gaby, Bree and Lynette are running around in the woods in the dead of night, but by the end of the episode, their motives are clear.

Burying a dead body was too good a plot twist not to dig up again. At least the melodrama and psychobabble (watch Susan get her art teacher to be a better father in just 30 seconds) are mixed with cute one-liners.

About this programme

6/23. Gaby, Lynette and Bree head into the woods to dig up and relocate Alejandro's corpse, and Susan is delighted when Andre appoints her as his intern - until she discovers what the job entails. Elsewhere, Renee prepares for her first big date with Ben, Carlos attends an Alcoholics Anonymous meeting, and Lynette fumes when she learns Tom's girlfriend, Jane, wants to make a Halloween costume for Penny.
