Desperate Housewives

Series 7 - 19. The Lies Ill-Concealed

The Lies Ill-Concealed
Radio Times
Review by:
Jane Rackham

There’s something disturbing about the way that Bree and Gaby are carrying on. Forbidden by Carlos to see each other again (what century does he live in?), the smirking women are meeting in secret, cooing and flirting with each other as if they were clandestine lovers rather than simply best mates. They even manage to make the line “But I love your scones” sound pornographic.

As if that’s not enough to make you feel decidedly icky, Susan is having erotic dreams about Paul Young, of all people. Meanwhile, Felicia gets Mrs McClusky on her side with some clever truth twisting, and Lynette struggles with the role of playing wife to her high-flying husband.

About this programme

19/23. Carlos discovers the truth about Andrew's involvement in his mother's death, and forbids his wife to continue meeting Bree. However, Gabrielle has other ideas, and starts to make covert arrangements that will allow her to pursue their friendship. Susan has erotic dreams about Paul during the six weeks of abstinence from sex following her transplant.
