Desperate Housewives

Everything's Different, Nothing's Changed

Series 7 - Episode 17 Everything's Different, Nothing's Changed



“Beth’s alive and that’s the way I’m going to keep her!” Paul Young snaps at Susan, who’s just a teensy bit disappointed that Beth’s kidney donation offer has suddenly been withdrawn. Strangely, Bree has conveniently forgotten that she’s also a match for Susan because she hasn’t stepped into the breach. Instead she’s stepped back into drunken son Andrew’s life.

Renee, meanwhile, is organising her “spring fling” party despite the general view that the timing’s a bit off. “My social life’s not going to come to a stop just because some cuckoo bird decides to clean her ears with a handgun,” explains Renee heartlessly, giving Gaby the rare opportunity to be the compassionate one.


Susan's chances of receiving a new kidney look set to improve with Beth on life support, but Paul is determined that the donation will never take place. Tom turns down a lucrative job offer to continue working with Carlos, and Bree tricks Andrew into attending an AA meeting - but he disrupts the event.
