Katherine And Robin End Up In Bed Together
18 August 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The Chase is the episode wherein Gabrielle gets a break from taking care of his children when Celia is sick with chicken pox.Also,we see awkward moments when Lynette has seemingly forgotten her daughter's birthday and Katherine has some feelings about being a lesbian.

Gabrielle becomes single again by no accident after she has to stay away from her daughter who got sick with chicken pox.She stays away from her house and stay with her neighbors.When she realized that her neighbors are trying to adopt a baby,she goes back home with a renewed appreciation for having children.Meanwhile,Lynette and her husband forgets Penny's birthday as both were distracted with the former's pregnancy as well as the tension in they are both experiencing in their marriage.Upon remembering it,they decided to arrange a last-minute party.Funny things happen as they did but they still managed to appreciate having children just like Gabrielle did.

As for Bree and Susan,the former hires a promising employee while latter encourages a neighbor to go forward with their romantic feelings.Finally,Katherine suspects about being bisexual after meeting the lovely Robin.When they were together,Robin accidentally spills champagne on her top and takes it off, causing Katherine to blurt out that she wants her to leave because she has feelings for her. Robin agrees to leave, but Katherine follows her upstairs, and they end up in bed together.

The episode was definitely funny especially when Katherine and Robin end up in bed together.While the other story lines were somewhat like a filler episode,this made up for it.The exploration of bisexuality and lesbianism is one way for it to attract viewers.It will definitely pique a lot of interest and entertainment in it.Aside from that,it was also great for the show to show appreciation for children in the Gabrielle's and Lynette's story lines despite the fact that the events surrounding it was something that won't really last after this particular episode.Also,it won't be enough to make it a good episode without Katherine's story line.
