Bree Has Lost Control With His Alcohol Consumption
3 October 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

In "What's the Good of Being Good",Bree continues to consume lots of alcohol which finally got out of control that led increase her lusts for men.As for Lynette,she goes out on her first date after her separation with Tom.The guy happens to be Renee's hairdresser.Meanwhile,Susan had a confrontation with Alejandro's wife,who apparently suspects foul play with her husband's recent death.Finally,Gabrielle discovered that her stepfather - Alejandro - apparently abused her other stepdaughter,Marisa.

This was a good episode particularly the confrontation that Susan and Gabrielle had with Alejandro's family.The viewer probably are finding out that Gabrielle's stepfather deserved what happened to him after the crimes he had committed.But things between them are going to provide lots of interest to the viewers in the coming episodes.As for Bree,she will definitely elicits lots of laughter from the viewers after she has finally lost control with her alcohol consumption.
