Susan Plays The Role Of A Father
8 October 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

With only four episode left including this one entitled "Lost My Power",we are seeing events that will ultimately set us up to a very interesting conclusion.

Susan takes over Mike's roles in helping MJ build a car for his father-and-son school soapbox derby.As for Bree,she hired high- powered attorney Trip Weston and they later discussed on the case that was filed against her as the primary suspect for Alejandro's murder.They discussed about the drunken sexual spree she had previously and needs to come clean about it to strengthen her case of innocence about it.Lynette tries to cause some negative friction between Tom and his girlfriend Jane by flirting with his boss and getting him to pile more work on her estranged husband.As for Gabrielle,she is furious with Carlos after he tries to poach one of her rich,personal shopper clients and talk her into helping with his newly formed charity organization.Finally,Renee has discovered that Ben is keeping a secret from her about Bree and the body found at his work site.

As the show approaches its final episode,we are getting to see really great story lines.It was touching especially when Susan tries to portray being the father of MJ after Mike passed away.Also,it was extremely entertaining as well as we become more interested in how Bree is going to go through with the case against her and how Renee could possibly help her friend.Also,the marriage of Gabrielle and Lynette is definitely going to some sort of a resolution as the show ends.
