    ACT ONE

    1. Mary Alice talks about the great view of the neighborhood from the second story bedroom of the Applewhite home -- but the view’s about to change, as newspapers are being placed over it.
    2. Betty comes home to find Caleb in the upstairs of her home. She’s mad at Matthew and sends Caleb away. Matthew thinks it’ll be safe for Caleb to stay there, while Betty disagrees. But Matthew notes that they both share a risk.
    3. At church, the priest is talking as Gabrielle watches a baby coo in front of her. Carlos and Gabrielle argue about the possibility of having a child, and Gabrielle reminds her hubby she’s miscarried recently. When the priest announces Sister Mary’s returned, Gabrielle calls out, “Son of a bitch!” then tries to pretend she wasn’t responsible.
    4. At home, Bree picks up Danielle’s backpack and carries it upstairs…
    5. Bree’s at the door to Danielle’s room and calls in, not realizing Danielle’s there with Matthew. She comes inside a moment later, to give Danielle the backpack and get Danielle’s laundry. All’s well until Bree sees Matthew’s hand beneath the bed. Bree asks her daughter if a black man is hiding beneath the bed.
    6. Betty answers her door to find Bree with Matthew and Danielle. Before the events can be explained, Betty slaps her son and orders him inside. She apologizes for what happened and tells the Van De Kamps she’s moving.
    7. At the Scavo home, Lynette’s working on an important pitch, and Tom offers his assistance, as she’s got nothing. He throws out some ideas and she runs with one of the concepts.
    8. Dr. Ron’s brought Susan home from their third date. She tries to get him to come inside -- Julie’s gone. She also has wine. But he passes and gives Susan a quick kiss. Before he leaves, though, Susan wants to know if she repulses him, as she’s tired of him being a perfect gentleman. He quickly insists he likes her a lot, but doesn’t know how ethical it is to move quickly with her while she’s still his patient. But he can’t help himself and gives her a passionate kiss, which Susan gleefully admits felt a bit unethical.
    9. Carlos and Sister Mary are meeting in her car, and she quickly notes it’s because Gabrielle despises her. She can tell he’s unhappy, and he brings up the argument about having a child. What can he do? She pulls a pamphlet about annullments from the glove box and tells Carlos that God helps those who help themselves.

    ACT TWO

    1. Lynette’s walking through her workplace as she’s on the phone with Tom. The pitch worked and now they can afford another executive. He wants to know about certain parts of the pitch that he contributed to, but apparently nothing he said made its way into the pitch, though she tries to avoid saying as much.
    2. Dr. Ron informs Susan that her spleen must be removed because of its proximity to her liver. That won’t require surgery, will it?, Susan wants to know. It will, and he can do it. Susan’s unsure about him seeing her naked for the first time in this context, but they decide to arrange it anyway. After Dr. Ron leaves, the nurse is pleased for him, and Susan learns he’s never done this surgery before.
    3. Carlos tells Gabrielle he can wait on having a child til she’s ready, but needs a promise that they’ll have kids eventually. She can’t do that for him. When he brings up Sister Mary and the annullment, Gabrielle’s angry.
    4. At the Scavo home, Lynette admits to Tom that the search for a new executive isn’t going well. Does he have any suggestions? Tom suggests himself -- with 2 incomes, they can afford a nanny, and her work now has daycare too. And the last time they worked together, they fell in love. But Lynette shoots down the idea . . . and Tom’s pulled away by Parker to find a toothbrush.

    ACT THREE

    1. Lynette and her boss Ed have finished an interview, but she wasn’t bowled over by the interviewee. The next person to be interviewed is Tom Cavos, and Lynette realizes it’s Tom! She goes over to Tom and the two argue. She thinks he’s good in advertising, but sometimes he coasts. He can’t let go of the fact that she screwed him over when it came to his promotion last year. They agree to let Tom’s resume speak for itself in the interview…
    2. And Ed loves his resume. He brings up his work at a company, and Lynette teases out of Tom the fact that he was fired from that job after 5 months. Ed likes he won a Cleo award, and Lynette gets Tom to admit he worked on the project with his wife. Ed’s ready to hire Tom now but Lynette wants to first check with his references…
    3. At church, Gabrielle’s looking for Father Crowley, and learns he’s in the confessional.
    4. Gabrielle goes to give her confession, but instead of confessing her sins, she only makes things worse for herself by claiming Sister Mary is trying to break up her marriage. Is she sleeping with Carlos?, the priest wants to know. Gabrielle lies and says Carlos admitted as much. The priest heads out, and Gabrielle then talks with another priest. She admits she’s fibbed recently and wonders how many Hail Marys that’ll set her back.
    5. Bree finds Danielle crying on her bed. Danielle turns from grief to anger as she accuses her mother of trying to destroy her just as she’s coming into her own, while Bree’s becoming an old fossil! Bree wants to help, and Danielle insists Bree do something. As Danielle begins to cry again, Bree tells her daughter she’s going to order pizza, and Danielle wants Canadian bacon.ACT FOUR

    1. Matthew comes home but he quickly moves past his mother. As Caleb and Betty chat, Caleb mentions Danielle is very pretty, leading Betty to insist Caleb not think about girls, and tell her son she’ll slap him twice as hard as she did Matthew if he looks at her again.
    2. Susan and Ron are eating dinner at her place, and he’s having trouble cutting the meat. She attempts to coax him into admitting he shouldn’t do the surgery on her, and finally admits she’s worried he can’t handle it, since he can’t even cut the meat. He lays into her, pointing out that the meat is too tough. He claims it’s okay she doesn’t want him to do the surgery, but then makes a quick exit.
    3. Susan’s followed him outside, where their argument continues, and he drives away.
    4. Lynette’s come home, where she tells Tom she told Ed the truth and he wants to hire Tom. She’s okay with that, on one condition: he can never bring up her ruining his promotion again. He agrees to this. And she also needs to be forgiven. Tom tells her he’s already forgiven her. She softens, telling Tom his dinner was really good and he thanks her.

    ACT FIVE

    1. The newspapers covering Caleb’s bedroom window are torn away…
    2. Outside, Bree and Betty talk. Bree favors allowing Matthew and Danielle to have chaperoned dates, as she suspects the kids will meet secretly otherwise. But Betty has no problem being the villain in this situation. Bree’s caught off guard as she sees Caleb in the Applewhite’s window! She excuses herself…
    2. Bree goes through her stack of newspapers and sees Caleb’s picture.
    3. Bree tells Danielle she’s not to go near Matthew again, as their family is hiding the man who broke into Gabrielle’s home.
    4. Carlos tells Gabrielle that Sister Mary is being transferred to Alaska.
    5. Susan’s in Dr. Ron’s waiting room, and when he sees her, she says she’s been there for 3 hours. She gives a speech about how she’s not going to ignore her instincts anymore, and she’ll no longer jump through hoops for men. Dr. Ron tells Susan he sent an apology and flowers to her house 2 hours ago. He understands that he can’t be her doctor, as he likes her and doesn’t want to lose her.
    6. Matthew and Danielle meet in secret. She presses him about his secret, but Matthew freaks. Danielle wants to be there for him, and notes her family also has a secret . . . Andrew did something bad and Bree covered it up. Matthew will tell Danielle his secret -- but first she has to tell her family’s secret.
    7. Gabrielle walks into the church where Sister Mary is scrubbing the floor. The nun quickly realizes Gabrielle’s responsible for her dismissal to Alaska, and Gabrielle rubs it in. As Gabrielle goes to leave, the nun lobs her sponge at her. Gabrielle retaliates by slapping Sister Mary! This leads to a full-on catfight, even involving Sister Mary being set on fire! Gabrielle pulls down a “Jesus Saves” banner and uses it to put out the fire, but Sister Mary then bites Gabrielle. As the fight continues, they have to be broken up by a priest.

    ACT SIX

    1. As Gabrielle returns home, Carlos is mad, since he’s learned what happened with Sister Mary. Her only regret is that she didn’t kick Carlos’ ass instead! He apologizes for the annulment fiasco but still wants a kid. She has her own ultimatum: he has to choose between her or having a child. When he chooses her, she informs her husband she’s also made a decision, and she wants a child too, with him.
    2. Bree answers her door to find Betty there. Betty lets herself in as she wants to chat. She confesses that she is hiding Caleb, her other son, but that he’s not responsible for hurting Gabrielle or the man who was killed. Betty tells Bree that they have a lot in common, as both are capable of going to extraordinary lengths to cover for those they love. And then she tells Bree she’ll tell the Solises and the police the truth about what happened to Juanita should Bree ever turn her in.
    3. The other women of Wisteria Lane are at the Van De Kamp’s front door, curious about what info Bree might have on the Applewhites.
    4. But when Bree lets the women in, she folds, revealing she’s brought Betty there -- to join their poker game.
    5. As Mary Alice gives her speech about war, we see the women playing poker, and everyone folds against Betty -- everyone, that is, except for Bree, who raises. And Mary Alice suggests this is going to be a fight to the death . .
