Bree As "Mrs. Van de Kamp"
25 June 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

In the second episode of the fifth season entitled We're So Happy You're So Happy,we get more updated about the changes that have happened to the women at Wisteria Lane.

First,Orson is somewhat uncomfortable and not so pleased with the success that Bree is currently experiencing as she is now known as "Mrs. Van de Kamp".With regards to Lynette,we see that she is being pushed to the limit by her son,Porter.This ultimately puts a lot of tension in their once great relationship.Meanwhile,Susan is no longer Mike's wife as she is now in a relationship with Jackson.Mike spends time with his son with Susan and tries to get to know who Jackson is in the process. Finally,Gabrielle wants Carlos to work as a masseur at a local country club.Too bad that this has a negative effect on her part as she is no longer invited in high profile parties and she misses her old social life.

I am still adjusting to the changes that has happened in the show after the five year jump.This episode does not do a lot but it just provides us more updates of the changes that has happened.So far,I am still surprised with Bree's success.
