More Like A Filler Episode
23 September 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

In the second episode of the final season of Desperate Housewives entitled "Making the Connection",Susan tries a way to cope with her guilt that is associated of being an accessory to the murder of Gabrielle's stepfather.As for Gabrielle,she tries to ease the guilt that she and Carlos are feeling through sex.Later,Bree learns that Chuck's past after visiting Paul Young in prison.Finally,Lynette and Tom find it hard to say no to their kids especially with the pain that both are experiencing in their marriage.

Nothing really matches the excitement that the first episode brought as the second episode sort of becomes a filler episode which I did not expect.I was hoping that there will be more excitement in it but nothing much really happens as all try to cope up with their guilty feelings.As for Tom and Lynette,it looks like the writers are somewhat putting a drag to what will eventually happen.I think that they should have resolved it a season ago but everything being put on hold.The only exciting thing here is Gabrielle's sexual mojo and nothing more.
