Maisy Gibbons' series of unfortunate events shock the residents of Wisteria Lane when she is finally arrested for solicitation right out of her own house. This leaves unexpected consequences for Bree and Rex when Maisy's little black book becomes public of all her clients, including Rex... Gabrielle and Carlos also face a crisis when their sewer system goes out at their house and they don't have the money to fix it. Lynette braves a scandal herself when it's rumored that the twins, Porter and Preston, may have started their school's head lice epidemic. But Lynnette figures out that fellow housewife and home mother Tammy Bremmer started the rumors to divert attention away from her own trouble-making son Topher and save his birthday party. As Susan sinks into depression over her breakup with Mike, she finds a surprising ally: Edie whom she confides in her problems and suggests they sneak into Paul Young's house to look for any evidence of his involvement in Mrs. Huber's murder.

Did You Know?


Maisy Gibbons: [jailed for prostitution, she declines Bree's offer of a deal] I'm not interested... But you do get credit for one thing: you came to visit me, even it was for an ulterior motive. None of the other girls from the Club even bothered. I've been abandoned. Guess that's what happens when you become the town whore.
Bree: Oh, sweetie, they didn't abandon you because you're a whore, they abandoned you because you weren't all that nice to begin with.

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

The latest discovery about Maisy Gibbons shocks all of Wisteria Lane, especially Bree. Gabrielle has a crisis when the sewer breaks and she has no money to repair it. Lynette must put on a brave face when a rumor goes around the twins' school that they started the head lice epidemic. Meanwhile, Susan becomes even more depressed about breaking up with Mike.All of this happens in The Ladies Who Lunch.

This was a very interesting episode. I can't remember a lot of from this particular season but this episode was very good. I liked the stories. Although, Susan didn't really have a storyline, except for being upset over Mike. I liked that Rex's secret may be exposed. Maisy Gibbons is so cruel. Plus, the lice thing was a good plot. One great show.
