Rather then letting Andrew try to oust Sam, whose job he got, while Orson is useless due to his wheelchair, Bree invites two cop friends to scare Sam into accept severance. Instead, he blackmails her for all business interests as drunk Danielle told him how Andrew killed Carlos's mother. With Danny tied-down, Patrick forces his college ex Angie to help with his revenge plan. That includes getting rid of visiting neighbors, but Gaby's requests for help with lasagna allows slipping out a note. Susan uses all her female charms and tricks to collect most payments due to Mike, but stupidly tries to handle their tax debt the same bully way, resulting in fines they can't afford, so they may loose the house. Preston is only shortly a suspect for the serial murders, including his Russian ex. When Lynette hears his mother is the latest victim, her naive compassion goes terribly wrong.

The Penultimate Episode Of The Sixth Season
26 August 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Many interesting things happen in this penultimate episode entitled,"The Ballad Of Booth".Lynette comes to realize a shocking truth about Eddie.As for Susan and Mike,their financial situation makes them to do a sacrifice.As for Bree,she offers Sam lots of money to walk away as an employee.Finally,Angie seeks Gabrielle's help when Patrick threatens to kill her son.

The showdown between Angie and Patrick is set up for the up-coming finale of the season finale of the sixth season.I know that Gabrielle is going to be a big help for Angie and the Bolens with their situation against Patrick.Meanwhile,the conclusion in the storyline that involves Eddie provides a lot of suspense as well.The cast provided a great performance.Credit also must be given to the writers of the show.
