because I fell asleep in my armchair (poor old bat). What happened. I got as far as wotserface (single mum character whose name escapes me) popping around to Mike's house and finding Eve there...and giving Mike a big snoggy just to drive home to Eve that he is all hers...

then the rest is a blank

can't remember in what order everything happened so maybe you saw some of this but what I remember is - rich bloke came out of prison on bail, electronically tagged. Wife was gutted - coz he can't go out to work and earn money; Brie (I'm sure it has a different spelling to the French cheese but I like it that way) told her pharmacist guy that she couldn;t see him anymore coz he'd basically admitted he was in love with her. Closing shot was of him watching CCTV footage of her in his shop while sitting on his own in his sitting room; Mike's house got ransacked and he had a message to clear out - I didn;t quite get all this as I was in and out of the room but I think it transpired that the woman who died at the beginning (the narrator)was Mike's ex (wife/lover? don;t know) and that he had only moved in to try to find out what happened to her, and was in cahoots with her father; single-dating-Mike character went with Eve (I always thought it was Edie) to scatter wotsit's ashes and ended up confessing to having burnt the house down. Edie said she wouldn;t go to polce but wanted to be invited to ethir poker games

i missed it too and was very cross with myself

Thanks for that hatsoff.

You're right, it is Edie not Eve - doh!

Nooooo - Mary Alice is narrator and Mike's (probably dead) wife is called Deidre - Deidre's father is the one paying Mike money but has now ransacked his house to get the money back (confused ? ... you will be )
Anyone still in need of a full episode rundown?

hatsoff Fri 25-Mar-05 09:37:43

so why does Mike think he's going to find anything out about Deidre hanging around in Wisteria Avenue (or whatever it's called)?

Newbarnsleygirl Fri 25-Mar-05 09:46:08

I've missed them all since the one with the fashion show.

Am I right in thinking that an episode is shown on E4 first and then repeated on C4 on Wednesday?

Snugs Fri 25-Mar-05 13:05:13

NBG - yes, E4 shows are one week ahead of Channel 4.

hatsoff - They've not made it clear yet why Mike is on Wisteria Lane, although in an earlier episode (the one with the bucking bronco) he mentioned that the bar they visited was the last place Deidre was seen.

So is Deidre the body in the box?

hatsoff Fri 25-Mar-05 17:41:35

so does the one Mike's dating know he has a missing wife/ex?

MunchedTooManyMarsLady Fri 25-Mar-05 17:45:26

No Susan doesn't know about his missing ex

Snugs Fri 25-Mar-05 17:45:50

Don't think so - it was Deidre's dad that he mentioned the bar to.

WideWebWitch Fri 25-Mar-05 17:46:10

Isn't the body in the box going to turn out to be Dana, the baby who died and was Mary Alice's?(dead narrator)

Snugs Fri 25-Mar-05 17:48:14

Well at the end of the episode, in the preview of next week, Paul told Josh (have I got those names right?) that Dana "is very much alive".

And anyway, the police said the bones in the box were adult.

I feel asleep at exactly the same point so thanks for that. I wish it started at 9pm - it's hardly offensive is it and compared to an episode of ER it's like watching Cbeebies! A campaign should be started on behalf of us tired mums!

WideWebWitch Fri 25-Mar-05 21:43:57

I stayed up to watch it but kept nodding off so yes, I wish it was on earlier. And I'm glad of this thread to remind me of bits I missed!

Snugs Fri 25-Mar-05 21:45:41

I'll give you a full rundown of the episode if you want

WideWebWitch Fri 25-Mar-05 21:47:09

Snugs, if you can be arsed it would be great! Thanks. Am about to watch taped Life Begins so I can fall asleep during that too!

Be astounded by the speed of my typing .....


Martha Huber's body is discovered and the news travels fast around Wisteria Lane. Susan stops by to offer her sympathy, her sister, Felicia, tells her she's going through Martha's diaries before turning them over to the police. Worried that the accidental arson of Edie's house is going to come out now, Susan realizes her only option is to come clean to Edie.

First she decides she has to get on Edie's good side, and the only way to do that is to go with her to scatter Martha's ashes. Edie becomes suspicious of why Susan is being so nice to her but Susan says it's just because she feels bad for how she's treated her in the past. When they're ready to toss the ashes, Edie starts to cry because she is so touched by Susan's kindness. Feeling horribly guilty, Susan admits to the arson and Edie throws the ashes in her face. Edie says she won't go to the police, but rather than have the rest of Martha's ashes go down the shower drain, she hoses Susan off in her front yard, deciding that's a suitable last resting place for Mrs. Huber.

Lynette is frustrated when she can't get into her yoga class because the day care always fills up before she can get there. A gum-in-hair incident forces her to shave her son Parker's head, who also just happens to have a cold. The next time she shows up at the yoga class, the receptionist sees his shaved head and mistakenly assumes when Lynette says he's sick, that he has cancer. Taking pity on Lynette, she agrees to sneak all of her children into day care. Lynette tries to correct her, but she can't resist the offer. This deception goes on until Parker meets a real cancer suvivor. Forced to reveal the truth, Lynette realizes she's ruined her karma for that particular yoga studio.

Carlos is finally let out of jail, but Gabrielle is dismayed to find out that he can't work because he's under house arrest. When Gabrielle comes home with a bucket of chicken, exhausted from a 10-hour day of modeling, she doesn't want to hear Carlos starting in again on the baby talk. To prove she can control him, she takes the chicken and walks across the street where he can't follow unless he wants to set off the alarm on his ankle monitor. The next day, he orders replacement birth control pills to be delivered, which he painstakingly replaces with placebos.

The older man Mike's working takes back his money and says he's hired a replacement since Mike hasn't produced any results yet in the search for his daughter, Dierdre. The older man says he's going to die soon, and he's running out of time, but agrees to keep Mike on the case.

Bree has been seeing George nonstop in a bid to make Rex jealous. George surprises her with a special gift that has her speechless: An antique gun from World War II. She tries to teach him to shoot, but just as he's about to pull the trigger, he goes in for a kiss and she pulls away and he ends up shooting himself in the foot. She visits him in the hospital, where she learns he's lost a toe. He asks why she pulled away and she admits she's still in love with Rex. George says he still wants to see her, even if it's not romantic. She turns him down, saying it wouldn't be fair and he's crushed. Eating a solitary dinner in front of his TV, we see the video George is watching is one of Bree from the security camera at the pharmacy.

Oh thank you, some of it I remember, other bits I don't. You copied and pasted it, right? NO-ONE types THAT fast!

Snugs Fri 25-Mar-05 22:10:52

Tsk - are you doubting my amazing prowess WWW ?

thefoodfighter Sat 26-Mar-05 22:06:38

thankyou thankyou snugs, you have rescued me from the depths! ...reminder to self must not open door to uninvited guests on a wednesday evening

marthamoo Sat 26-Mar-05 22:10:04

Now the most significant thing in the whole episode - that no-one has mentioned...

GABRIELLLE EATS TURKEY TWIZZLERS !

When she was taunting Carlos from across the street she dangled a turkey twizzler over her open mouth.

I'm sorry but I don't believe a woman with her figure eats any kind of deep fried poultry product.

WideWebWitch Sun 27-Mar-05 11:55:51

Marthamoo, was it?! OMG! I thought it was KFC but hey, I was drifting in and out of sleep, wtf do I know?
