Storyline

Susan's longtime book agent and dear friend, Lonny Moon, gets into financial trouble and asks for her help. Lynette is forced to go out to bars night after night with her man-hungry boss, Nina, to help ease Nina's stress. Bree is allowed to re-bury Rex amid police suspicions. Bree also becomes angry when she finds out about Rex's feelings about her prior to his death that he suspected he was being poisoned... by her. Gabrielle hires David Bradley to defend Carlos in court, but Carlos rejects him, sensing the attraction between David and Gabrielle, until... More of the Applewhite's past is shown when Betty wants to contact the police in Chicago to inform them of their whereabouts involving a murder case involving the murder victim Melanie Foster, her captive, mentally disabled son Caleb, whereas Matthew wants to keep hiding out and protect the simple-minded, but violent, Caleb with them. The fugitive Paul Young inconspicuously returns to Wisteria Lane. Written by matt-282

More Like A Filler Episode
27 March 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

In They Asked Me Why I Believe in You,Loony Moon,who happens to be Susan's long-time friend and book agent,gets into trouble financially.Also,Lynette is forced to keep up with her female boss' trip to the bars night after night as she happens to in need of male companionship.While Bree finds out abut Rex's feelings towards her before her death.Meanwhile,Gabrielle hires,David Bradley as Carlos' lawyer to defend her husband on court.Finally,Betty is guilty after knowing that an innocent man has been arrested for a crime committed by her son.This happens to be an okay episode but it was far from good and great unlike the two first episodes.Nevertheless,it will provide the viewer fun entertainment despite the stories seems to be just like a filler for better episodes to come.
