So did anyone catch last nights Desperate Housewives? Warning, Plot ruined below!
Lynette did in fact loose one of her twins. I had heard rumors that this might happen in this episode but I wanted to watch anyway. I wanted to know if they would really bring this horror to light and how they would handle it. While I missed what exactly caused the loss, I am torn about how I feel about this.
On one hand I am so glad that the loss of a child and the effect that has is being brought out of the shadows I am a little sickened at how her characters husband, Tom seemed to handle the news. He seemed just fine. I was struck at just how fine he seemed. I know I have stated that I wanted Ty to be more emotional with me in the aftermath of our losses but at the initial news and days/months after he did and has cried with me. He just isn't as open to the emotions and talking about it as I am. I am coming to terms with that. But Tom, on the show, told her that they lost one but the other baby lived and that they would be fine. WTH? I don't understand that? Am I the only one bothered by last nights episode? Lynette's character I was fine with her performance but his I don't know, just rubbed me the wrong way. Im also wondering how they are going to handle this in future episodes or if this was a one time mention. Are they going to address the aftermath of a loss like this or leave it be? I know its silly, its just a television show. But then again, that topic is pretty personal. I'm not bothered to the point of writing the show or losing any sleep over it, but I wanted to share my take on the episode and wondered how other parents who have been their took it. Did you think it was tasteful or could have been better portrayed?
