Halloween At Wisteria Lane
12 June 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

It is now Halloween at Wisteria Lane in this episode entitled,"Now I Know, Don't Be Scared".Many things happen at that neighborhood during this time of the year.

It starts when Carlos decides to leave Edie and Gabrielle intends to separate Victor but a surprise visit from her husband's father makes her think about it.As for Susan,she gets to meet also her husband's father after learning that he happens to be alive and in prison.As for Lynette,she becomes obsessed with both her chemotherapy sessions to get healed of cancer and when she saw a dead possum that got into the front yard of her house.She becomes really emotional about it that it would somehow touch the viewer.Finally,Bree is hilarious with her costume after their new gay couple neighbors - Bob and Lee - throw a Halloween party.Also,when Adam,the gynecologist of Susan,wasn't able to tell that she had faked being pregnant which only furthers the suspicion about his credentials as a doctor.

This was definitely a great episode with a lot of interesting story lines.One would probably be sad at the end of the relationship between Carlos and Edie.But nevertheless,we get to become happy when we see Lynette close to getting healed of cancer.Finally,it was definitely hilarious when we discover the competence of Adam with regards to being a doctor as Bree's secret remains hidden. LOL
