When Orson is admitted to the hospital after he attempts to rob an old woman whose house he breaks into, he's confident that nobody will believe her because of her senile personality. But later, Bree becomes suspicious of the truth, but keeps it to herself. Meanwhile, Tom and Gabrielle square-off against one another when Tom joins Gabrielle's new gardening club and she worries about a fellow member flirting with Tom, while Carlos saves Lynette after she falls and hits her head in the shower. Dave goes into a decline over Edie's death, and when Susan pays a visit to cheer him up, she discovers his handgun he's been plotting to kill Katherine with. But naturally drawing the wrong conclusion, thinking that Dave intends to kill himself, Susan steals the gun and as with her klutzy wout, ends up getting pulled over and arrested. Also, Katherine pressures Mike to move forward with their romance to the next level, and Dave eventually learns that he's been targeting the wrong Whisteria Lane ... Written by matt-282

Events After Edie's Death
15 July 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Rose's Turn provides us events of what happened at the aftermath of the death of Edie.

After Edie died from a car accident,Dave Williams spends most of his time on his own.This upsets the women of Wisteria Lane.Susan became weary that he might kill himself after paying him a visit.

Meanwhile Bree is still suspicious that her husband Orson is still lying to her about his habit.Too bad that Orson is trying his best to get rid of the witnesses to the crimes that he has committed.Will Bree finally be forced to file for divorce?

As for Gabrielle,she joins a gardening club and asked Tom for help.This allows them to get in touch more with each other and things could get really interesting in the future episodes.

Finally,Lynette falls in the show and lo and behold as she got rescued by Carlos.Will they also form an unusual type of relationship the Gabrielle and Tom are currently into?

Overall,I find this one an enjoyable episode.It wasn't a great one but at least we still get to remember the previous one when Edie died.
