Juanita Watches A Horror Movie
20 September 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

In the 21st episode of the Desperate Housewives' seventh season,Paul starts to have some suspicions that Susan is somehow responsible for his rapidly declining health.Meanwhile,Lynette and Tom start to show tension in their marriage as they start arguments with regards to their family vacation.As for Gabrielle,she shows her daughter Juanita a horror movie to somehow scare her off and makes her sleep in her own bedroom alone. Hahahahaa!!!!Finally,Bree runs into some trust issues when he unknowingly goes on a date with a detective.

Despite the fact that it was slow and an uneventful episode,I felt that it was more than just a filler episode.I really laughed at how Gabrielle punished her daughter by asking her to watch a horror movie and to sleep in her own bedroom alone.That itself was enough to make me say that I loved this episode.As for the others,I felt that things are going to play out as the season finale approaches.
