Gabrielle Bumps Into John
11 June 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

In Art isn't Easy,we get to see Lynette run against Katherine for president of the homeowners' association for personal reasons as she doesn't want her to go after her kids' tree house.This places Susan in a dilemma as with regards to supporting her best friend and the decision to get rid of the fountain.As for Bree,she is shocked to learn that her daughter has been staying with Phyllis,her ex-mother-in-law.As for Edie,she feels something is going on with her relationship with Carlos as her boyfriend has become distant towards her.And finally,it is funny to once again to see Gabrielle run into her former lover and gardener,John Rowlands into a hotel.She was surprised to realize that he still has deep feelings for her.

This was another enjoyable episode in the fourth season.It is good to see Jesse Metcalfe reprise his role as John Rowlands as there are many viewers who love his character.It was also nice to see the rekindling their affair during the first season into the show's fourth year.Additionally,the new character Katherine as definitely provided a lot of spark in the fourth season particularly as she develops a rivalry with Lynette.Finally,many will definitely looking forward into the next episode as they become curious of the future of the relationship between Edie and Carlos as they start to distance themselves from one another.Is this the end between the two?
