Fresh Narratives
1 July 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

There's Always a Woman provides new stories in the fifth season of Desperate Housewives.It provides many latest developments and it wasn't a filler episode unlike the previous one.

A client offered Gabrielle and Carlos something that makes them interested which happens to be.She offers Carlos to go with her in Europe and is willing to pay him $50,000. Too bad that Gabrielle suspects that the client to be no good.In this storyline,we are introduced to a wacky character Virginia Hildebrand,who is portrayed excellently by Frances Conroy.

As for Lynette,she becomes suspicious of her husband Tom.She thinks that she is having an affair.It is evident that the tension between the two hasn't cooled off as both have been involved in affairs for many seasons.But nevertheless,we get to see that Tom is experiencing mid-life crisis.Expect more tension to come for both Lynette and Tom in the future episodes especially when one of them is actually playing games with the other.Meanwhile,Susan breaks up with Jackson.When she visits him,it was a surprise that she is willing to give the relationship another try but she is surprised to realized that he has found someone else.The friendship between Bree and Katherine becomes strong after the latter stated to the former that she is leaving to Maryland.Also,Katherine's daughter Dylan happens to be pregnant.

Overall,it was great episode due to the fresh narratives in it.I am expecting on the exciting developments and story lines to come in future episodes.
