A Classic Episode
28 March 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

In Color And Light,Gabrielle tries revisit her past when her old friends come to town.Unfortunately,he wants her three-month pregnancy to be kept a secret.Also,we get to see Susan find temporary solace with her ex-hubby Karl after breaking up with Mike considering that he also find himself in a relationship argument with Edie.Added to that,the Scavos uncover a secret sex tape of Harpers children while they baby sit their children.Finally,George proposes to a horrified Bree at an engagement party staged by George and his mother, Francine.This was definitely a classic episode.Too bad that Gabrielle could have lost her baby.Also,it was really interesting to see Mike and Karl sleep together after their marriage is over.Wow.And of course,it was also humorous that Lynette discovers a secret sex tape which reminds me of celebrity scandals who have been involved in it like Paris Hilton.Anyway,this definitely what makes Desperate Housewives a great show.
