Desperate Housewives Episode Recap: "Never Judge a Lady by Her Lover"
Oct 11, 2009 09:28 PM ET by Mickey O'Connor Watch Episode
On Sunday's episode of Desperate Housewives, Gaby ran into her old friend/statuatory rape victim John Rowland (Jesse Metcalfe), Bree dealt with jealousy when Karl finds a new flame, Lynette made some decisions about her pregnancy and Susan wanted answers from the Bolens in the wake of Julie's attack.GABY
Gaby is feeling frumpy again, hence her hair is in a ponytail. The Solises are out to dinner, and they bump into John Rowland (Jesse Metcalfe), who, it turns out, owns the restaurant. He bought it with his divorce-settlement money. Gaby takes out her ponytail with little subtlety to indicate that she has taken note of the fact that John is back on the market... or so it seems.
John drops in at Carlos' office to ask his permission to hire Ana as a hostess, which he thought was a good idea given their history. When Carlos realizes that this idea will irk Gaby, he gives the OK.
In retaliation, Gaby shows up at Carlos' important business dinner looking frumpy to prove that she's not dressing sexy to impress John. She points out that if she was going to leave Carlos, she would have done it when he was blind and they were poor. This is perverse logic, even for Gaby, but Carlos buys it. And even though Gaby was probably being honest when she affirmed her love for Carlos, by the end of the hour, she finds some old pics of her and John, and has a wistful moment of their past affair.

But mostly this story line feels like ancient history, and I wonder if it's worth repeating.SUSAN
Bob, the only attorney in all of Fairview, is defending Danny Bolen. Obviously, Susan isn't ready to listen when Angie tries to reason with her. In her anger, she decides to start a war of words, spreading gossip about the Bolens with the neighbors. When Mike points out that the police have no evidence against Danny, Susan suggests that maybe they should find some on their own.
After a botched attempt at a stakeout with Lynette, Susan decides to confront Danny, who's in his driveway working on a friend's car. She asks him what he knows about Julie, but he says he can't talk to her on the advice of his lawyer and rolls back to work under the car. At this point, Susan kind of goes nuts and lowers the jack
