Sets Us Up For The Season Finale
19 July 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

After the previous episode was somewhat a filler and unexciting,Everybody Says Don't prepares us for the finale being the penultimate show of the fifth season.

We get to see Gabrielle and Carlos attend a family meeting that was hosted by Aunt Connie,who reveals an ulterior motive.Meanwhile,Bree admits some of her intentions with regards to her stealing and hiding some of her stuff to Orson.This leads into a disaster as he blackmails her by staying married to him.As for the Scavos,Lynette was surprised when she finds out that her husband Tom wants to go back to college to study a foreign language.It happens to be Chinese.Finally,Susan learns how desperate Katherine wants to stay with Mike despite Jackson's admission to her that it was Mike who was responsible for reporting him to the authorities.

This pretty much sets up the viewers of things that are going to happen to the women at Wisteria Lane.We can expect Katherine and Mike getting married and probably Bree and Orson staying together.But who knows?LOL Or better yet a divorce would probably ensue especially after Bree and Karl are developing a relationship. We can also expect some changes in where the marriage of the Scavos are heading especially when they stayed together amidst the hardships,difficulties and tension they have experienced.Finally,there will be tension for Susan as she comes along with Dave,who has been doing a lot of criminal acts in the season. One will definitely be excited as the fifth season ends.
