When the plan fails, Karl makes Susan an offer she can't refuse. Gabrielle becomes very attached to a Chinese immigrant housekeeper, named Xiao Mei who is staying with them after being rescued by a slave owner employer.

Dierdre's terminal father learns the truth about his grandson. Lynette eats a pound of raw bacon.

  • Tom realizes his job was won by his flippant boss Ed Ferrara's sympathy, and eagerly cultivates their male bonding by playing boyish frat games at the office, accepting and usually winning Ed's ludicrous dares. Lynette fails to see boys will be boys and is determined to 'save' Tom from humiliation against his will...

Susan is desperate to get full health insurance before her upcoming wandering spleen surgery and acts on Edie's radical suggestion to marry- she agrees with a closet-gay man who wants to fulfill his mother's 'last wish' to attend his wedding. When his love for a jealous gay partner prevails, Karl makes Susan an ideal offer: re-marry her to repay their easy divorce, without telling Edie... Bree calls Danielle pretty but stupid for suggesting just to ask Betty for the Applewhites secret, instead sneaks into their house bearing a fruitcake to meet half-wit Caleb, who in a chillingly openhearted conversation about his violent past scares and satisfies Bree... His new nurse Felicia Tilman slips the dying Noah Taylor an anonymous note that he has a living grandson, so he sends the corrupt detective Sullivan to threaten Zach Young's real father Mike to spill all the information he knows about the Young family...
