Desperate Housewives

February 20, 2012 by staff 

Desperate Housewives, Desperate Housewives has a reputation for dragging mysteries out across seasons, but in tonight’s episode a small secret that was raised in last week’s installment – who was the father of Julie’s baby? – was resolved almost immediately.

After being evicted from their apartment, Porter and Preston move home – only to overhear Susan confiding in Lynette about Julie’s pregnancy. Cue worried glances, followed by Julie asking to meet the father of her baby, followed by Susan overhearing the call and hiding in the cafe in proper spy mode, newspaper and all.
We soon discover that Porter is the daddy (which is weird enough, considering that – as Susan points out – Julie used to babysit him.) But this could work well for Susan, as Porter wants to raise the baby with or without Julie, meaning that she might not lose her grandchild after all.

Unfortunately, when she offers Porter support he asks her to tell Lynette about the baby… and Lynette has a full on, screaming, breathing-into-a-paper-bag reaction to it all. Susan can’t convince her this is a good idea, but Porter might – he movingly talks about loving his daughter before she’s even born, and it’s really touching.

Still, Julie’s furious with Susan – now whenever she comes home, Porter and her daughter will be there, adding to the pain of it all. Susan tells her she would never have been able to forget about her baby – she knows what it’s like being a mom – but as she reaches out to touch her Julie yells: “No” and vows never to forgive her mother for taking her choice away. For a moment I thought Julie would roll over and play along, so I’m glad she was defiant and angry.
