Storyline

Lynette finds out that the twins, Preston and Porter, are responsible for starting the fire at Rick's restaurant. But the true culprit is the crafty Kayla who finally begins escalating her twisted quest to destroy the Scavo family by trickery and intimidation. While Lynette sees through the charming, but very sociopath, Kayla's nefarious plans, the naive and immature Tom, blinded by his own denial, refuses to believe that Kayla is responsible for everything bad that is happening to the family. Meanwhile, Bree gives Orson an ultimatum to turn himself in after finding out that he was the one who attempted to kill Mike. Orson refuses, and is forced to move out of the house. But as always, the man-hungry Edie appears and offers her house for Orson to stay in while he looks for a new place. Susan reconnects with her ex-husband, Karl, whom she meets at a Lamaze class with his new young wife. Carlos and Gabrielle rent out their spare bedroom to Ellie, a young artist, whom Gabrielle suspects ... Written by Anonymous
