Bree confronts Orson about his stealing and ends up taking him to counselling, Bree thinks he is sick and leaves him with the doctor. Orson says he enjoys stealing because its something Bree can’t control and he loves it.

Edie finds out more about Dave’s past and that he lost his wife and daughter in a car crash. Dave convinces Katherine to come camping after she pulled out and everything is set. At the newspaper office they have more information for Edie about who else was in the car accident but are reluctant to send it.

Can’t fault this episode, more laughs, more joy, good solid show. I am still waiting for the payoff with the Dave situation and can’t wait for them to go camping now. Bring it on.

Y2Rating: 8/10
