Gabrielle's engagement party at the Scarva Pizzaria is upstaged by an unexpected announcement from Edie who tells her about her dating Carlos. Gabrielle tries to persuade both Lynette and Susan not to speak to Edie. But Edie yet again outsmarts everyone by hiring Lynette to cater to Travers 10th birthday party and to show off Carlos to the rest of the neighborhood. Meanwhile, Lynette continues spending more time after hours at the pizzeria talking with Rick to avoid going home her noisy and dysfunctional home life, while Tom thinks about returning to work to keep a closer eye on Lynette and Rick. Elsewhere, the rest of the neighborhood is full of gossip about the dead body of Mrs. McClusky's husband found in her basement freezer on Wisteria Lane, and only Parker seems to know the truth about ...

Susan Chooses Mike Over Ian
31 May 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Gossip is defined as a careless conversation that deals with people and could be somewhat considered a fiction as it is usually based on unreliable sources.It could also be considered a nasty speculation that is far from being polite and respectful as it could be far away from the truth.This word is the title of this particular episode of Desperate Housewives.

In it,we get to see Susan consult a therapist as she now has to come up with a choice between Mike and Ian.First of all,she chooses Ian by telling Mike she is going to marry him.But later,Ian has finally realized that Susan loves Mike a little more than him by finally giving way to him.Then,he goes back home in the end.It was not good especially for viewers who wanted Mike and Ian to end up together.

Aside from that,we also get to see Gabrielle and Edie confront one another in the street.Both have a common denominator in their love life:Carlos.Later,we get to see Susan and Lynette get dragged into their little war.It was very hilarious and dramatic at the same time. Also, we get to see Travers is having a birthday party.Then an unexpected body was found on Wisteria Lane that provoked a lot of gossip into the neighborhood.Another mystery takes place in the show which would definitely arouse the viewers to look forward into the next episode.
