The latter comes to Bree's aid when she is arrested during Renee's bridal shower for Alejandro's murder. Anyway, Bob refers her to a hot shot lawyer with a knack for getting hardened criminals off murder charges - the amazingly slimy Trip Weston, played by Mr Quantum Leap himself Scott Bakula. Although he wows Bree by concocting genius excuses for every piece of incriminating evidence, he sends her packing because her case isn't challenging enough.
He changes his mind however, when Bree is hauled back in to the police station over some new evidence - a map found in Alejandro's hotel room with Wisteria Lane circled and Bree's house number written on it, though the digits were sneakily pencilled in by that partner of Chuck's whose all-consuming vendetta against Bree I still can't quite get my head around.
Trip frees Bree from his clutches like some kind of morally bankrupt white knight and explains that he took on her case because he can tell that she knows who dealt Alejandro that fatal blow. So, yeah, looks like this storyline is going to be dragged out even further, probably right to the very end of the season.
Despite what last week's cliffhanger implied, there's been no real progression and we're treated to what must be the third episode in a row that closes on whatshisface scowling at the camera going "Gah, I'm gonna get that broad if it's the last thing I do". I'd really like a resolution soon, please.
Lee, meanwhile, is the one that discovers a mysterious locked box belonging to Mike while helping Susan clear out his belongings. When she finally convinces him to let her take a look, they find a secret cheque book showing that Mike has made monthly payments to a woman called Jennie for years.
When Susan uncovers some child-esque paintings, she jumps to the conclusion that Mike has another son or daughter. With Julie in tow, she tracks down Jennie and discovers that Mike really does have a secret family member - an autistic sister named Laura, living in Jennie's home for adults with mental disabilities.
Far from being relieved, Susan continues to wonder why Mike would choose to hide Laura away and whether that says something about her character. Before she becomes consumed by her thoughts, Julie comes to the rescue and informs her of some letters in the box from Mike's mother. Turns out the dearly departed Delfino only discovered about Laura recently, as his parents gave her away a long time ago after deeming her "an inconvenience that might have destroyed everything".
Julie guides Susan to the realisation that Mike was simply keeping a promise to his mother that he would never allow the family to know her dark secret. This latest revelation gets Julie thinking about how she's been treating her own unborn baby. She bursts into tears when she notes that she too considers her child as an inconvenience and decides to keep it. I'm glad we got to see a bit more of Julie this episode. She's been doing a good job keeping Susan from collapsing and it was nice to see her approach Mike's death with a level head last week when MJ was acting up.
But she has her own issues to deal with too big issues , so I'm happy there was some new development to her story - and a heartfelt one at that. What's more, after being kept apart for a while Jane and Lynette are this week forced back together for some more beautifully bitchy encounters.
Lynette's still determined to win Tom back - and it seems like he's waiting to be won. When he brushes off Jane's insistence that he deliver divorce papers to Lynette, she makes a surprise visit to their marital home and serves the papers herself.
Lynette responds by splashing icing for Tom's birthday cake all over her love rival in a pretty shocking fashion yes, I gasped. I admit it. But this storyline has always specialised in emotional gut-punches rather than big belly laughs. If the Push up Bra Fits! Lynette and Greg. Mama Needs a New Pair of Everthing! Photo Bomber!
