Right now, the story line we care about the most on “Desperate Housewives” is Gaby and Carlos’ predicament with Juanita.
No, not Susan’s (Teri Hatcher) strip tease shenanigans. Not Tom’s (Doug Savant) male postpartum depression. Uh, uh on Rene (Vanessa Williams) and Bree’s (Marcia Cross) tug-of-war over Keith (Brian Austin Green). And no, not even whatever crazy plan Paul (Mark Moses) is cooking up. (By the way, anyone else think his new wife is Felicia’s agent?)
What’s really getting us is Gaby (Eva Longoria-Parker) and Carlos’ (Ricardo Antonio Chavira) predicament with Juanita (Madison De La Garza) being switched at birth. They started the episode — though Gaby showed some reluctance — signing away their rights to sue the hospital in exchange for it ending the search for Juanita’s real parents.
Then, Gaby had a change of mind after a little girl mistook her for her mother at the mall. She realized she couldn’t continue go on without knowing who her real daughter is and if she’s okay.
On one hand, it was a typically selfish move on Gaby’s part, since she didn’t think about the pain she’d put the other family in, as well as her own. On the other hand, it is her daughter somewhere out there and any mother would have the same thoughts Gaby has.
Zappers, do you think Gaby should have contacted the other family or should she have left it all alone as she and Carlos had planned? And how do you think this will all turn out?
