Episode cast overview, first billed only:
Gabrielle Solis (as Eva Longoria Parker)
Carlos Solis (as Ricardo Antonio Chavira)


Gabrielle struggles with the reality of having a blind husband, and being superficial and narcissistic as always takes advantage of his blindness to get better parking spaces. Meanwhile, Susan is puzzled by Orson's sleepwalking habit which is stemming from repressed guilt over attempting to kill Mike. Lynette is surprised when Rick shows up at Scavo pizzeria planing to open up his own pizza parlor down the street which strikes up both jealousy and resentment in Tom. Elsewhere, Bree and Katherine join forces to plan the Founders Day Ball. But Bree feels threatened when Katherine takes over the whole panning stage. Also, Julie asks Dylan to accompany her for the Founders Day Ball, and Julie later overhears Orson mumbling about running Mike over. Written by Anonymous

Gabrielle Adjusts To A Blind Carlos
18 June 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is the twelfth episode of the fourth season.It is entitled "In Buddy's Eyes".

In it,we see Bree plan the Founders' Day Ball.Katherine offers to help her and chaos started.

As for Lynette,she is shocked to see Rick once more.Do you remember they almost had an affair together last year? Tom also gets see him too.

As for Susan's husband Mike,he apologizes to Orson for accepting his prescribed drug.What's weird is the fact that Orson remembers hitting him with his car and starts to sleepwalk.

As for Gabrielle,she starts to adjust to the condition of her husband being blind and has problems adjusting to the fact it.

This episode had better-than-average story lines particularly that of Bree and Katherine.It was wonderful to see both Marcia Cross and Dana Delany as Bree and Katherine respectively as they provided great performances.As for the others,I felt that it just served like a filler.But nevertheless,I would be looking forward to how the marriage between the blind Carlos and Gabrielle will work out in future episodes.
