23 February 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Gabrielle decides to organize a fashion show for charity featuring the women of Wisteria Lane. Susan then becomes angry at Gabrielle once she discovers her secret. John's mother, Helen Rowland, thinks her son is sleeping with Susan and not with Gabrielle, but Gabrielle confesses to Helen, to get the heat off Susan, that she's been sleeping with her son. Before Carlos finds out about Gabrielle's secret, he is arrested. Bree decides to take Andrew's behavior and punishment into her own hands. The police investigate a toy chest that is found in the river and the search is on for who put it there.All of these events happen in this episode entitled,Suspicious Minds.

This is one brilliant episode especially especially the Susan and Gabrielle story line.It adds drama to the show considering that their argument provides a lot of interest in the friendship shared by the four main characters.In addition to that,the fashion show provided a lot of comedy to it as well especially when we consider Bree in it.Overall,it provides the viewer more reasons to watch the succeeding episodes.
