Old Themes From Previous Seasons Return
3 July 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The episode is entitled "What More Do I Need?" Too bad that it does not provide the viewers what it needs for this particular episode does not move forward after the show provided fresh narratives the last one.

In it,Lynette and Tom discovers something about their son,Porter is sleeping with a married woman.As for Gabrielle,she continues to suspect Carlos' client,Virginia of ulterior motives but barely uncovers anything.As for Bree,she discovers that someone made a sex tape of her and she together with Orson are trying their best to get the copy of it before it becomes available for public consumption.As for Susan and Jackson,they try to reignite their relationship despite of the latter being with another woman.Is it Susan's turn now to be cheating?

It is just too bad that what happened from previous seasons have been happening once again.Sex tapes.Cheating.Reigniting relationships.And the list goes on.The only difference is it is happening to different characters.I hope they just became more creative with the character transformations after the five year change.Can't Marc Cherry provide something new?But nevertheless,I am still not giving up on the show.
