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

There's a change in Mama Solis' condition for the better as she finally wakes up from her coma, but it doesn't last long. The residents of Wisteria Lane all attend the unfortunate funeral of Juanita Solis as Carlos and Gabrielle fret over their financial and court issues.

Lynette befriends a deaf woman, Alisa Stevens, whose children also attend Barcliff Academy with Porter and Preston, but her new found friendship is tested when she butts into her disturbed marital problems of her husband saying things behind her back. Meanwhile, Bree encounters more trouble with her son Andrew when it comes to disciplining him and tries to convince Rex that he needs serious help.

Lastly, Susan finds herself attracted to Edie's hunky new contractor who's sticking around the neighborhood, but Edie doesn't want her to go with him as a favor to their fragile friendship.

There was a big shock this week and that was the death of Juanita that made Gabby rather happy.The scenes at the funeral were really funny.The conflict between Susan and Edie is always funny to watch.Overall,it was another solid episode.
