Susan Was Asked To Go Nude
26 September 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Susan became anxious during her art class when her art teacher asks the students to show up in nude in order to create a portrait of honesty.This made her very uncomfortable and mortified.As for Bree,she make some delicious homemade soup for the homeless at a local shelter.Too bad that she piqued the interest of the local hipsters and those who are in need.As for Gabrielle,she finds herself without someone to assists her in setting up a school event.Her peculiar approach to her new job as the PTA President disappoints a lot of parent volunteers.As for Lynette,Renee helps her to get back into the dating scene which unfortunately she find somewhat uninteresting.Finally,Carlos has started to drink heavily as the feelings of guilt of killing a man overwhelms him a lot.

The Art of Making Art was a superb episode of Desperate Housewives. I was happy that there is a big development in the marriage between Tom and Lynette when the latter gets back into the dating scene after she suspects her husband of having an affair.I was just happy that things started to move forward after too many unresolved issues have being piling up with their crumbling marriage.Definitely,the funniest storyline in it was definitely that of Susan after she was asked by her Art teacher to go nude.We'll soon find out how committed she has really become in her new interest.
