Okay, I love Gabrielle the most of all these bitches and I think she has the best storyline generally. But this thing with Grace's parents makes me really uncomfortable, and it's because of this right here: You get diversity awards and recognition for having minority faces in your cast, sure. And I guess Vanessa Williams qualifies as black, but nobody would argue she's as black as the poor folks in that horrible Alfre Woodard storyline, or as black as that ex-con that nearly raped the pretty white girl last week. Renee is as black as Gabrielle is Latina, which is to the same degree as Tom Scavo and his red-headed children are Italian. All of which is fine, fake diversity is better than none, but bringing in these broken-English tortilla-eating illegal immigrants just makes the whole thing seem like a giant lie, where we can stereotype and laugh at them but it's okay because technically the Solises are a Mexican-American family that proves we're over it and post-race and whatever.
Anyway, when Gaby returns, pieless, stripping the gears of Hector's truck, she is unrepentent. "Please don't yell at me. That was my first time driving stick shift, and my nerves are shattered." She explains heartlessly that Hector got arrested because he -- "and I begged him not to!" -- drove onto the shoulder, which is where the police caught them. Carmen, who is apparently not too quick on the uptake, is like, "Wait, he got arrested by the police? Oh shit, that's totally different from what I thought you meant when you said he got arrested. Grace, go get your shit, we are leaving town." They disappear to the truck and Carlos needs Gaby to explain their deal: "I think they're illegals," she whispers, and runs over to beg Carmen not to go to Texas. Or, if she does, to at least leave Grace behind.
"Mrs. Perry slapped the caterer, so dinner's gonna be a little late," Susan explains to the hungry kids' table, out in the driveway. You know, because she cares about kids so much she can't stand to be away from them for more than a second or two, but leaving them in the driveway to starve while the adults are inside drinking -- that's just good parenting. They say something about Paige on the monitor and how she's been crying for awhile, so Susan steals their football and throws it at the Scavo's house so she can go be an asshole some more.
