In a moment of letting her guard down, a drunken Gabrielle finds herself the morning after with Zach... in bed. Gabrielle confides in Carlos about this predicament and tries to make sense of it. Orson is confronted by Mike about Monique and her strange death, in which Orson barely survives a fall off the roof of the hospital. Bree wakes in the hospital following her "accident" and is in a hurry to return home and deal with Monique's death, herself. The truth about Monique Pollier's murder is finally revealed how both Orson and his twisted mother were involved, as well as more of Orson's past is shown. When Alma learns of Gloria's plan to murder Bree, she attempts to escape from her "prison" to warn her only to suffer a "freak accident". Tom becomes nervous over preparing for the night of the Scavo's Pizzeria grand opening, while Lynnette inadvertently makes matters a little worse with ordering the wrong chairs. Neverless, the grand opening goes off without a hitch where proposals fly ... Written by Moviedude1

The End Of Alma Hodge
21 May 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The Little Things You Do Together is the continuation of the previous episode entitled,I Remember That.In it,we get to see Ian come across the ring that Mike was suppose to give Susan for an engagement proposal.Too bad that Mike came into an accident before he could have given it.Aside from that,we get to see Tom and Lynette doing their preparation for the opening night of their new pizzeria.Too bad that they caused a lot of trouble when they made a lot of errors in mixing up the chairs especially with people who are not suppose to sit together due to tensions they have with one another.During the opening night,it was announced that Susan and Ian are engaged.Meanwhile,Zach tries to continue to woo Gabrielle with whom he has a big crush by telling her that something happened between the two of them sexually.Added to that,Gabrielle also tries to wave off her former hubby,Carlos. Finally,Gloria makes a plot to kill her daughter-in-law Bree.She does this during the opening night of the pizzeria.

This was an entertaining second episode of a two-part episode.It was entertaining with great comedy and dramatic scenes.Also,we get to see the end of Alma Hodge,who dies after jumping off the roof.The story lines were great.Also,we get to see Bree get involved with nutcases like Gloria.But will it already end after her mother-in-law got paralyzed?Or will Gloria won't be stopped.Another interesting thing about it is the revelation of Monique's killer.
