Desperate Housewives

Making the Connection

Series 8 - Episode 2 Making the Connection



“We’re never going back to normal!” states Carlos angrily. And he’s right because he and most of the Housewives are overwhelmed with guilt over their part in the murder of Alejandro and the subsequent cover-up. Only Gaby and Lynette, who is actually more concerned with her separation from Tom than any blood on her hands, seem able to move on.

Inevitably it’s a slower episode than the previous one with most of the emphasis on the Mary Alice-style blackmail note Bree found in her mailbox.


Susan discovers a thrilling way to help ease her guilt over her role in Alejandro's murder, and Gabrielle plans a surprise to help Carlos return to his old self. Meanwhile, Lynette and Tom vie for the affections of their children as their marriage woes continue, Bree learns an interesting fact about Chuck's past, and Renee tries to win the affections of neighbour Ben.
