Desperate Housewives

Fear No More - S1-E20

Audio problem: As Carlos is giving his speech at the barbecue, Julie sees Zach and says to Susan "Oh God". After cutting to a shot of Zach and his father it shows Julie and Susan again. If you look to the right of the shot you will see Carlos' face is just looking in front of him and not speaking, but you can still hear him giving his speech whilst he is in shot.

Come Back to Me - S1-E10

Audio problem: When Susan suspects someone might be in the house, the seduction music she has put on for Mike is drowned out by the score. When she accidentally hits Mike across the face, the score stops, but the music that was playing in the background has gone. The song in the background before now was music within the show, and it was loud enough to be heard around the house, so we should still be able to hear it.

Shay

Your Fault - S1-E13

Audio problem: At the school dance, the students are all dancing at a rapid pace when the music playing is a slow song, indicative that the music was dubbed in later.

Chromolume No. 7 - S6-E17

Audio problem: When Gaby goes to introduce Angie to Heidi Klum at the fashion agency, Gaby goes up to Heidi and says "It's me, Gaby." When the camera angle changes to behind Gaby in the next shot, she is saying the same thing again, but no words are coming out.

My Two Young Men - S6-E18

Audio problem: During the dinner scene at the Scavo's home, Lynette tells Irina that her son Preston is "blinded by a piece of Eurotrash who would sell her own mother for a pair of designer jeans." When the camera changes to behind Lynette in the next shot, she can be saying the words "designer jeans" again, but this time with no sound.

What More Do I Need? - S5-E7

Audio problem: When Lynette warns Anne to never lay a finger on her son Porter again, from behind Lynette's head she is still talking, but no words are coming out.

Plot hole: When Zach Young's grandfather died, Zach was said to be the sole heir of the fortune. However, Noah Taylor (the grandfather) had a daughter that appeared several times while Mike Delfino was looking for Deirdre. Where was Kendra Taylor while Zachary Young was spending Noah's fortune on dresses for Gabrielle Solis? Why didn't she claim her share? She simply disappeared.

Question: Where did Kayla go? When did they get rid of her and where did she go? And which episode is it?

Answer: Kayla was sent away in episode 16 (The Gun Song) in season 4, after falsely accusing Lynette of child abuse. She now lives with her grandparents - probably Nora's parents.
