Julie
4 August 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The second episode,Being Alive,provides us interesting story lines that involves the four women living at Wisteria Lane together that of the new neighbor that just moved in.

Katherine feels sorry for Susan and predicts that her marriage with Mike isn't going to last just like the first time around.She reveals this to Orson.Or maybe she is just hurt that Mike left her for Susan.Speaking of another ex,Karl and Bree are continuing to having a relationship.Unfortunately,Bree feels uncomfortable with her friendship with Susan knowing her present boyfriend's history with her.Meanwhile,Gabrielle gives her niece on how to get a guy's attention.As for Lynette,she intends to keep her pregnancy a secret towards from her children.Susan knew about the pregnancy and felt happy for her but she was surprised the lack of it from her friend.As for the new neighbors,Angie is determined to protect her son Danny he became a suspect of the strangling of Julie.As the police began to question the neighbors,they were notified that Danny and Julie were last seen together before the event happened.This placed Angie's son into custody.

This was a good episode.It was simply dramatic after memorable events happen like the strangling of Julie.Teri Hatcher did a fabulous job of portraying Susan as the concerned mother.Added to that,the mystery brought about by the new neighbor - Angie and her family - will spark interest in the viewer.Despite the fact that it isn't something refreshing as new characters in the show have something dark in their past,we are still treated with delight and anticipation.Anyway,I just would look forward to the next episode.
