Mirror, Mirror contains a lot of flashbacks as the viewers are reminded the events of the housewives during that five year jump that happened when the fifth season started.A viewer may have mixed emotions upon seeing this considering that one may miss the previous characterizations of the housewives during its first four year run especially if they don't like the changes and transformations that has happened OR they may also feel nostalgic about the previous seasons of the show.Added to that,it also provides us a reminder of how the characters have changed as we progress into the fifth season.

In other events,we see Dave convince Susan to throw Mrs. McCluskey a surprise 70th birthday party.As for the ladies,we see Gabrielle feeling that she might be pregnant with a third child;Susan is feeling that Jackson wants to take their relationship to the next level;Lynette has been told by her husband that he sold the pizzeria; and Bree's bond with Katherine has been disclosed which led to Mrs McCluskey question her sanity. Ovearall,the present story lines were good enough to provide both drama and humor that the show is known for.
