Also, somewhere in there, we see a flashback to the day Katherine and Dylan moved away. Mary Alice and Susan (in a strange Egyptian Keely Smith wig) stop by Katherine's house to ask why there's a moving van out front. A very harried Katherine squirrelly tells them that she's suddenly landed a job in Chicago, and the family's moving...today. They all hear the sound of something breaking upstairs, and Katherine tries to pretend its just clumsy movers. Susan and MA look suspicious and concerned, and Katherine tells them that Dylan won't be able to say goodbye to Julie -- she's too busy packing. Then she quickly shuts the door in MA and Susan's puzzled faces.
At the forty-eight-minute mark, I asked my boyfriend, "Is it me, or has absolutely nothing happened in this episode?" And by way of an answer, he just snored softly, his head lolling back onto his shoulder.
And then, almost as if the writers had the same realization, they tack on this scene with Carlos and a craggy-faced man at a bar. Carlos slides the man a fat envelope full of bills, and the man agrees to "take care" of Edie, thereby character-assassinating all the nice-guy goodwill Carlos built up over the last two seasons. Also, I wouldn't have thought Fairview was a big enough town for two hired killer storylines? Oh, Fairview.
