John Is Back
5 August 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Never Judge A Lady By Her Lover has the show's fans meet John Rowland,the former lover of Gabrielle. They get to have a chance encounter which happens to be the highlight of the show.

While Carlos and Gabrielle together with their family are eating out,they were surprise to know that John owns the restaurant.Gaby finds out that John just got divorced.When he visits Carlos at work,John tells him that he is interested in hiring Ana as a hostess.Gabrielle refused to let her work there to avoid the temptation of reigniting the affair that she and John used to have.But Carlos allowed Ana to work to test his wife but Gaby reminded him that she has been loyal to him for many years.

As for the other story lines,Susan got upset that Danny was released from jail.She vowed to take actions in proving that it was Danny who attacked her daughter,Julie.This leads to a more tension between Susan and Angie as the latter is also determined to defend her son.Meanwhile,Lynette tries to hide her pregnancy from Carlos in order to get a big promotion at work.Finally,Bree learns more about Karl with with regards to his commitment and sincerity towards their relationship.Unfortunately for Karl,her feelings isn't mutual.

From all the story lines,I enjoyed that of Gabrielle considering that she is put into a test by her husband which she feels isn't deserving of.We all know very well that the affair between Gabrielle and John was the highlight of the season's first show.Although some would probably feel that this is more of a rehash of the writers' previous success,I still believe that the viewers were definitely excited to see Jesse Metcalfe back.As for the others,I felt that they were good enough but not as worthy of mention of that Gabrielle's story line.
