Bree heads back in to the party and stoically announces that the "buffet is open." Susan tries to come up to her and comfort her, but Bree holds up an hand, and in that one gesture, you can see that if anyone says anything sympathetic to her, or tries to make her feel better, she's going to crumble. So Susan keeps her distance, and the party grinds back into gear. Okay, so I have a few thoughts about all this:
Thought #1: Somehow this all feels so familiar. Didn't Felicia use the party for Edie and Karl's (doomed) engagement to make her big public pronouncement that CreePaul killed her sister (remember? In a supreme act of weirdness, she wrapped up Mrs. Huber's dentures as a gift for Edie?). And then there was the woman who came and warned Bree about George. This seems to be a well the writers on this show like to dip into pretty frequently: "the woman who overshares."
Thought #2: One (or as I like to say, "Juan") wonders why Jackie from Roseanne didn't phone the police back when Alma first went missing, what with all those compelling clues like the parroting parrot, and the crime-scene clean-up, and the fight Jackie from Roseanne and her husband overheard. Though maybe that all relies too heavily on circumstantial evidence?
Thought #3: You know, doesn't Orson seem a little too guilty? In Televisionese, someone who appears as 100% guilty, as Orson does is, by definition, innocent.
