Bree Tries To Help Susan Find A Kidney Donor
13 September 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Searching is the sixteenth episode of the seventh season. Many interesting events happen with the women at Wisteria Lane.Susan tries to live each moment with passion and tries to appreciate life more than ever after realizing that her dialysis treatment isn't going far and she'll probably live not much longer until she gets a kidney transplant.Bree tries to help Susan by locating a kidney donor for her friend.Meanwhile,Gabrielle becomes jealous of Bob and Lee's talented adopted daughter that she encourages her daughter Juanita to come up with a number to outshine everyone on the upcoming school talent show.As for Lynette,she discourages Renee from adopting a baby while Beth struggles emotionally after she got kicked out by her husband Paul from the house.

This was both enjoyable and entertaining in the sens that we get to see interesting things happen to the women at Wisteria Lane.I find the friendship between Bree and Susan grow stronger as the former tries to help her friend to live longer and help with regards to her health issues.As for funny moments,we get see them with Lynette and Renee especially when they tackle the issue of motherhood.Great show!!!!
