Lynette learns that no good deed goes unpunished when she momentarily befriends the mean Mrs. McCluskey. Susan's mother decides to try and jump start her and her daughter's love lives. Susan later finds her mother in her kitchen with a man she picked up, and Susan asks her mother to get rid of him. Andrew talks to a priest about his feelings, and tells him of his shocking plans for his mother, Bree. Carlos sends Gabrielle a big message about what will happen if she leaves him for another man, and John offers to take care of her.

Meanwhile, Mike makes some shocking discoveries about the disappearance of his former girlfriend as well as the involvement of the Young family in her disappearance.

This was one good episode of the show as we see how the characters deal with loneliness and how it addressed it like talking to a priest and how they try their best to make their marriage work and save it as well.
