The women decide to go ahead with the big dinner party that the late Mary Alice Young had planned to host, despite the more-than-minor disturbances in their own lives. Adulterous Gabrielle finds herself with a nine-year-old blackmailer, named Ashley, who catches Gabrielle in the act with John. Meanwhile, control-freak Bree struggles to keep her crumbling marriage a secret. Susan bares all (in more ways than one) as she confronts her ex-husband Karl over his new teenage mistress. Lynette has her husband Tom look after their kids for one evening just to show him just how uncomfortable her home life really is. Also, Paul and Zach continue to quarrel over the late Mary Alice and about her mysterious past they are desperately trying to hide. Written by Anonymous
