A Humorous Penultimate Episode
3 June 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

In "What Would We Do Without You?",Susan and Mike have finally become engaged.It happens one year exactly from the time Mike got involved in a hit and run accident.She gets angry though when she realized that Gabrielle has stolen her cancelled wedding from her and Ian to be able to get hitched with Victor.As for Lynette,she refused to speak to Tom.Her husband is trying to save their marriage at all cost but nothing seems to work.Finally,we get to see Edie is also trying to save her relationship with Carlos the same way Tom is doing for his marriage.

This was definitely a humorous episode.The fight between Susan and Gabrielle,the marriage counselling that Tom and Lynette have gone through and Edie's manipulation as she tries to be with Carlos but she is secretly trying to prevent herself from getting pregnant by taking contraceptive pills.It was definitely a good penultimate episode.Everyone would definitely look forward for the final episode of Season 3 next week.
