Lots Of Character Development Happen
10 August 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The Coffee Cup has both Susan and Katherine being sentenced to a community service when both committed a violation of picking trash.This led them to another awkward moment after they both exchanged stories about their sex life particular when they were with Mike.Katherine brags about having an active one while Susan gets bothered with her current on considering that it does not compare at all with Mike's ex.

Meanwhile,Gabrielle prepared her daughter Julie getting into a Catholic school with the help of her husband.As for Lynette,she gets dismayed with her pregnancy when Carlos sends one of her trainees instead of her to Florida since it covers her impending maternity leave.Also,Angie Bolen refuses to talk with Julie knowing that her son is remains a suspect into strangling her.Finally,Orson gets suspicious that Bree is involved with another man. Isn't she?LOL

So far,there is a lot of character development going on with the people at Wisteria Lane.Nothing really spectacular or big is really happening but I like how this episode provides us glimpses of what are things to happen later in the season and how the characters would turn out to be.
