Great Performance By Felicity Huffman
30 August 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

In the fourth episode entitled The Thing That Counts Is What's Inside,many interesting events happen at the women of the Wisteria Lane neighborhood.

Susan is becomes fearful when she discovered that she has become the face of an internet company that she has been employed at and has also become the model of their outdoor billboard ad.Gabrielle tells her female friends with regards to her hidden secret meeting her daughter somewhere and the family who is taking care of her.Meanwhile,Renee and Bree develop some sort of a rivalry especially with the hopes of getting the affection of Keith.As of Lynette,she takes Penny's offer to help her look after the baby.And finally,Paul purchases the home that he shared with Mary Alice in the past against the wishes of his wife.

This was a great episode.Lynette's story line was just awesome especially when she and Penny get to have an agreement about the baby.Felicity Huffman was simply great in her performance.Another worthy of mention is the developing rivalry between Bree and Renee and how the cougars are turning out to be.Very hilarious.I am looking forward to the next episode with great anticipation.
