Mary Alice Young: Death is inevitable. It's a promise made to each of us at birth. But before that promise is kept, we all hope something will happen to us... whether it's the thrill of romance, the joy of raising a family, or the anguish of great loss. We all hope to experience something that make our lives meaningful, but the sad fact is not all lives have meaning. Some people spend their time on this planet just sitting on the sidelines waiting for something to happen to them... before it's too ...

The Death Of Martha
23 February 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Wisteria Lane finally learns what happened to Martha Huber and Susan learns what Mrs. Huber knew about her. Bree feels that her new beau, George, is getting a little too close, but does not want to hurt his feelings. Carlos finally returns from jail, but Gabrielle is not too happy about it. Lynette chooses to lie about Parker's health so she can get into a yoga class.

This was another brilliant episode as the residents of wisteria lane discover that Martha is indeed dead. There were good story lines. I liked scenes like Gabby eating the chicken and Bree shooting George in the foot as well as Edie shoving Martha ash's into Susan's face. This is one reason why I could say that this show is phenomenal for it is full of deceit, charm, scandal, heartache, affairs and love.It's just an emotional roller coaster and every time without any question.Obviously, each episode as the season progresses just gets better and better.
