Bree and Orson are going on their honeymoon to Bermuda. But at the airport, Bree sees her runaway son, Andrew, on the public TV featured as a homeless teenager in which Bree wants to cut short their honeymoon to go look for him, against Orson's protests. After Bree unsuccessfully tries to get Andrew to return home, Orson later meets with the troublesome youth and, despite seeing the abrasive sociopath Andrew still is, persuades him to return home by relating to his inner rage and hostility. Meanwhile, Gabrielle and Lynette plan a weekend at a posh health spa while Tom is going on a camping trip with the wild and crazy kids. But Lynnette's quiet weekend is also cut short when Tom phones with an emergency and she has to go to him. But things turn for the worse when Nora arrives and insists that she tag along with Lynnette. At the spa, the lonely Gabrielle runs into her former flame, John Rowland, who's now a rising landscape designer, but regrets a one-stand with him in the morning when... Written by Anonymous

John Rowland Is Back
4 May 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Welcome to Wisteria Lane!!!It is the third episode of the third season.It all starts with Bree and Orson are going on their honeymoon after their wedding.While at the airport,she sees her son Andrew on TV.He featured as a homeless teen-ager.This cuts her honeymoon with her new husband to settle the issue right away.Meanwhile,Tom is going on a camping trip with the kids as Lynette spend sometime in a spa together with Gabrielle.But Tom calls her due to an emergency and Lynette goes to help her.And look whose back?Gabrielle runs into her ex-gardener and ex- lover,John Rowland at the spa.They go into a romantic getaway in Sinclair Hotel and make love for many hours.But they later got caught in bed with John's fiancée that happens to be the hotel chain's daughter. As for Susan,she continues to date Ian but her conscience still bothers her with the feeling that she is somewhat cheating on Mike,who manages to wake up from coma.

The most interesting storyline happens to be that of Gabrielle after briefly reuniting with John.It provided memories of the first season and their love affair.Viewers would reminisce that briefly in this episode but it was cut short when John's fiancée - ala Paris Hilton character - catches them.Their poignant "goodbye" scene was definitely something. It was nice to see Jesse Metcalfe as a guest star in this show.As for the other story lines,I think that they were also good but there is nothing really worth mentioning about.
