Goofs --Bree's attorney says that the coroner put the time of death within a 2 hour window but Alejandro's body was buried for weeks before it was found so the time of death could not be estimated that specifically.
  • When Lee and Lynette are at her house while she was trying on the bridesmaid paper, they're drinking wine. When Lynette sits down and picks up a glass of wine, it's with her left hand. When the camera switches angles, it's in her right hand.
