'Desperate Housewives' Recap: Andrew Admits To Murder & Lynette Gets A Sexy Makeover!

Lynette finally got to do Lynette on the April 17 episode — but will her new lifestyle end her marriage?

The April 17 episode of Desperate Housewives was all about big reveals: Andrew (Shawn Pyfrom) revealed to Carlos (Ricardo Chavira) that he ran over his mom and killer her; Felicia (Harriet Harris) revealed her intent to destroy Paul Young (Mark Moses); and Lynette (Felicity Huffman) revealed the biggest surprised of all — she’s actually kind of hot!

But Lynette’s sexy mom makeover came at a price… her trusty dog-slash-husband, Tom (Doug Savant.) His big-time job may be making him big-time money — he gave Lynette $10,000 to splurge on herself — but it’s also keeping him away from home for days at a time. And the worst part is, he loves it. (Dear Marc Cherry, will this woman ever be happy?)

Meanwhile, in the deep woods, Bree (Marcia Cross) and Gabby (Eva Longoria) kind of accidentally told Carlos the truth about his mom’s hit-and-run killer. This led to a truly disturbing scene in which Carlos tried to force Andrew to start drinking again (nice work, Ricardo Chavira.) And although he ultimately forgave Andrew, he gave Bree a terrifying warning at the end of the episode. “Go to hell” was involved.

Susan (Teri Hatcher) also had a bit of a bummer week. Her dialysis buddy passed away, leaving her with a $100 poker chip to go along with her sudden streak of luck. No matter how much money she won — $12,000 to be exact — nothing could ease her suffering. Not even an awkward story about World War II from Mrs. McCluskey’s dashing husband.

Paul and Felicia also had a little pow-wow in this episode. It turns out one of the houses Paul bought on Wisteria Lane was put in Beth’s (Emily Bergl) name, so according to her will, the house now belongs to her psycho mother, Felicia. She’s got something nasty for Paul up her sleeve, and this week her plan was to pretend to bury the hatchet between them.

Now that Paul has his guard down, what do you think Felicia will do to him? Drop your thoughts in a comment below!

Andrew did not kill Carlos’ mother. She died months later due to hospital negligence when she went roaming the halls and slipped down a flight of stairs. The hospital admitted thy were resposnible and the Solises received a large settlement.
