Bree And Orson Gets Married
2 May 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

It Takes Two is the second episode of the third season.We get to see Bree and Orson get married.But the wedding day gets interrupted when Orson's ex-wife body was found and that brought the groom for some questioning by the authorities. Then Susan and Ian goes on a date but it also gets interrupted when his in-laws saw them together in the restaurant.Meanwhile,Lynette decided to match Nora with Gabrielle's soon-to-be ex-husband,Carlos at Bree's wedding to keep her occupied and away from the Scavo household.As for Edie,she discovers that her young nephew,Austin is trying to break into her house.She allows him to live with her for a while.Finally,Xiao-Mei goes into labor to deliver the surrogate child of Gabrielle and Carlos.

This was a better episode compared to the first one.We get to see a lot of mystery,surprises and drama in the story lines.First,we get to see Bree does not become involved but gets married not only with a mental case but a suspected killer as well.A viewer will get interested in the things ahead with her marriage.As for Susan,we get to see her get affected as she felt that she cheated towards Mike,who happens to be in coma.Later,we realize that she herself gets to date a married man.Funny. As for Lynette,we get to see her make a lot of trouble for her friend,Gabrielle after she sets up Nora with Carlos.Apparently,she still has feelings for him after she gets infuriated with this match.As for Edie,it was also nice to see her storyline becomes interesting as well as she meets the "female Edie" in her trouble maker nephew.LOL Apparently,we have a great season ahead for Desperate Housewives.
