Episode cast overview, first billed only:
Carlos Solis (as Ricardo Antonio Chavira)


Tom generously offers a $20,000 budget to redecorate his office to enthusiastic Renee and Lynette, who alas back-stabs her partner pretending she knows what Tom really wants better then he does, but ultimately that's respect and support now his career finally pinnacles. Carlos won't take Gaby back as long as she consorts with Bree, yet that's where she stays 'a while' but their unruly spoiled daughters. Even drill expert Bree fails to discipline the brats, until Carols tells his daughters who really killed their grandma, but their fear-spurred obedience soon turns into terror, once more bringing flirtatiously teasing police detective Chuck Vance on Bree's path. Mike urges Susan to probe her undeserving 'nursing charge' Paul about returning their home now they're out of debt. Alas, poison mongering by Felicia spoils both that and Susan's bid to coax the PTA into inviting the principle to take her back as teacher. Written by KGF Vissers

Juanita And Celia Stays With Bree
19 September 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

In the 20th episode entitled "I'll Swallow Poison On Sunday", Gabrielle and her girls stay temporarily at Bree's house.Unfortunately,Bree had to implement dictatorial rule in order for Celia and Juanita not to create ruins and chaos at her house. Meanwhile,Tom asks her wife Lynette together with Renee to redecorate his office.There is some disagreements between Lynette and Tom with regards to how to proceed as each one has ideas contrary to each other.Finally,Susan discovers that Felicia has been back on Wisteria Lane and realizes that she must be up to no good particularly against her organ donor's husband - Paul.

This a very funny episode especially after you see Gabrielle's daughter stay with Bree in her house.They really can make you laugh and they are far from being annoying. As for Felicia,she definitely is also very funny as you see her visualizing poising Paul without Susan clueless not knowing what to do. The other story lines were also wonderful especially when we see Tom and Lynette's marriage get into trouble.It seems that Renee knows Tom more than his wife does.
