Storyline

As Susan continues to work as a teachers' aide, she tries to stay on the reading teacher and her employer's, Jessie's, good side since she will be evaluating Susan's performance. But Jessie, who happens to be a closeted lesbian, mistakes Susan's stuttering and lame attempts to be friendly as come-ons. Meanwhile, Edie begins looking for more information at a local newspaper office on information on the people who died in Mike's car accident years earlier, and discovers the connection between the victims, and Dave, who continues to badger Mike into taking him and Katherine out on a camping trip. Lynette interviews for an ad job for herself, and soon answers one. Bree forces Orson to attend therapy sessions for their marital troubles, as well as his kleptomania. Following the death of his boss, Carlos gets a promotion, which will lead to him working with Lucy, an overweight, but attractive woman in her late 30s... and who happens to be Carlos's ex-roommate and very first love interest ...

Lucy And Jessie
12 July 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The Story of Lucy and Jessie provides the viewer a lot of interesting events.It tells about how people got the wrong impression or result of what the main characters of Wisteria Lane are trying to impress upon.

In it,we see Susan tries to impress a teacher named Jessie at work but unfortunately it provided the latter a different impression.As for Gabrielle,she tries to convince her husband Carlos to hire her friend Lynette but instead of doing so,he decided to work with an old acquaintance named Lucy. Meanwhile,Orson's shameful habit grows which makes Bree decide to protect herself at all cost.Finally,Edie decides to investigate further on Dave's past life.

I have mixed emotions when seeing Edie having a great storyline considering that Nicollete Sheridan just have a few episodes left with the show.When she digs on Dave,she realized that he has a daughter named Paige,who died on a car accident.I am excited to see what the conclusion of Edie's character at the end of the season.

As for the rest,we get to see the tension rises especially between Bree and Orson as the latter's stealing and kleptomania has become uncontrollable.The same tension in marriage also is experienced by Gabrielle and Carlos as the former meets the latter's ex-roommate who happens to be an attractive lady despite being overweight.As Lynette manages get a job at his company,her second agenda is to spy on Gabrielle's husband as a payback for securing employment.Finally,Susan invites Jessie to dinner but it ends up wrongly - with a passionate kiss between them.Could this be another relationship that Susan is going to enter? Let's wait and see. LOL

These are the events that would make me interested to anticipate the next episode with joy and excitement when Lucy and Jessie become part of the lives of the women at Wisteria Lane.
