Sad And Depressing
7 October 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

As the final episode of the show approaches,we see more events unfold that could probably better described as sad and depressing in the sixteenth episode entitled "You Take For Granted".In it,the viewer witness Susan convincing Mike to go to the police when discovers that Ben's loan shark is out to get him which could only end up in disastrous results.Also,Gabrielle becomes concerned with her husband when Carlos shows some strange behavior when he gets back to work.As for the Scavos,we see Tom's girlfriend drop a bombshell to Lynette during Penny's birthday.Finally,it was truly depressing to see Bree asked to assist in ending Mrs. McCluskey's life when the latter was learned to be suffering from terminal cancer.

As we have seen from the story lines, we are really seeing a lot more drama than comedy in this particular episode.Aside from Mrs. McCluskey dying and Bree being asked to take part and Susan asking Mike to go to the police,I really was blown away with the new heights of the up-and-coming dramatic climax that the marriage of Gabrielle and Carlos could end up.I have a feeling that the emotional burden and pain that they are experiencing and are going to experience soon will be too much that they too will end up in separation.Anyway,I am anticipating a big dramatic impact at the end of the season.
