Lynette finds out that the twins, Preston and Porter, are responsible for starting the fire at Rick's restaurant. But the true culprit is the crafty Kayla who finally begins escalating her twisted quest to destroy the Scavo family by trickery and intimidation. While Lynette sees through the charming, but very sociopath, Kayla's nefarious plans, the naive and immature Tom, blinded by his own denial, refuses to believe that Kayla is responsible for everything bad that is happening to the family. Meanwhile, Bree gives Orson an ultimatum to turn himself in after finding out that he was the one who attempted to kill Mike. Orson refuses, and is forced to move out of the house. But as always, the man-hungry Edie appears and offers her house for Orson to stay in while he looks for a new place.

Carlos and Gabrielle rent out their spare bedroom to Ellie, a young artist, whom Gabrielle suspects ... Written by Anonymous

Bree And Orson May Separate
20 June 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

In the fourteenth episode entitled Opening Doors,Susan accidentally meets her former husband,Karl at a Lamaze class.She finds out that he also just got remarried like her and his wife happens to be pregnant. As for Lynette,she happens to learn who started the fire in Rick's restaurant.As for Bree,she wants her husband to turn himself to the police.Finally,Gabrielle rents a room to a hip artist,Ellie.

I like the storyline of Bree as she separates her belongings from Orson and she can only forgive him if he turns himself to the police.Too bad that it looks like he can't.This could probably result in a not-so-happy ending with regards to their marriage especially after she admits to Katherine of her intentions.I cold not wait to watch the next episode and the ultimate result of their marriage.The other story lines were alright but there's not enough suspense in it aside from that of Bree.
