'Desperate Housewives' Recap: A Familiar Face Returns — Do You Think He's Paul's Shooter?

Sun, January 9, 2011 10:49pm EST by 3 Comments

The ladies of the lane squawked accusations on the Jan. 9 episode, but the final moments revealed yet another suspect.

Vanessa Williams‘ face sums up my feelings about this week’s Desperate Housewives. While most of the hour felt like empty calories, the main course proved juicy enough to keep us hungry for answers! Stop reading now if you don’t feel like being spoiled, because I’m about to discuss this week’s bomb-shell appearance by…

Zach Young (Cody Kasch!) Yes, Mike’s son is back on the lane — and he stirred up some serious drama at Bree’s (Marcia Cross) house when he posed as a flower delivery man. By planting a gun under Beth’s (Emily Bergl) seat, he set of a bitch-fest of The View proportions. Beth’s really bad at making friends.

Now, let’s talk about all that other filling:

Remember when Gaby (Eva Longoria) bought that creepy doll last week and talked to it like a baby? Her one-way train to Crazytown picked up even more speed this week when she found Juanita (Madison De La Garza) and the other one playing with… her precious!

To get back at him for sleeping with René 20 years ago, Lynette (Felicity Huffman) turned Tom’s (Doug Savant) life into a never-ending episode of Tom and Jerry – a new prank around every corner. René clued Tom in on his wife’s half-baked scheme, prompting one of Tom and Lynette’s classic dramatic fights and super-sappy makeups. It’s always the same old song with these two, just different verses.

And poor Susan (Teri Hatcher) is still on death’s door. She needs a kidney, and she can’t get one from Julie (not a match) or her mom (she has cancer.) Am I the only one thinking that somehow she’ll end up with one of Paul’s kidneys by season’s end?

“Zach Young (Cody Kasch!) Yes, Mike’s son is back on the lane”
Isn’t it Paul’s son, not Mike’s?
